Thomson Resources is a diversified minerals explorer currently progressing a number of projects within Queensland and New South Wales with a focus on silver, gold and tin. The Company’s primary focus is its aggressive “New England Fold Belt Hub and Spoke” consolidation strategy in NSW and QLD border region.

Thomson is targeting, in aggregate, mineral inventory available to a central processing facility equating to around 100 million ounces of silver equivalent within the New England Fold Belt portfolio. Resource estimates published by previous operators demonstrates that the aggregate of those for these projects achieves that target. Thomson has been undertaking its own Mineral Resource Estimates for each of the projects in accordance with JORC 2012. With what Thomson has published to date it is well underway to achieving this target with a current combined MRE of 40.2 Moz silver equivalent for the Texas District and Conrad Project. The MRE for Webbs will issue in May 2022 with the Mt Carrington polymetallic MRE’s still to be published.

What do you see as the key risks and challenges facing your company at the moment and how are you overcoming these?

• The variability of precious metals and commodity prices – blend of deposits and projects provide an ability to insulate to a degree from this

• Local communities’ views on mining – comprehensive ongoing community engagement commenced and will continue.

• Covid-19 – Difficulties in gaining access to skilled geoscientists and exploration equipment

What do you think makes your company such a compelling investment?

• Thomson has successfully and strategically amassed a large minerals portfolio within our New England Fold Belt Hub and Spoke projects that are at various stages of development and size which is allowing us to transform these group of Projects into an economically viable development scenario via our centralised processing strategy, whereas, standalone each project would not work.

• The rapid speed in which we have been able to produce our own mineral resource estimates done to JORC 2012 with the New England Fold Belt with a target of 100 Moz of silver equivalent. Currently we are at 40.2 Moz of Silver equivalent with further Resource estimates to be issued.

What are the top 3 key investor takeaways?

• Able to leverage of previous operator multi-million dollar spends on exploration places Thomson well down the development pathway in a short period of time.

• Board and Management team highly experienced and demonstrated ability to deliver on these Hub & Spoke Strategies in a thorough and sustainable way
