Mick Billing Executive Chairman of Thor Mining commented in a statement read to the meeting, "I am pleased to have secured shareholder support for this further strategic financing which enables the Company to proactively push ahead and continue its work to advance both the Molyhil and Pilot Mountain Tungsten projects, and to continue our due diligence in respect of a number of new opportunities in the precious and strategic metals space.

"The extent of work completed to date on our two key tungsten projects is considerable and we are in a position where a modest amount of additional work could yield a material increase in the inherent value of each project. 

"Molyhil in Australia and Pilot Mountain in Nevada, USA are the Company's two key interests at present and we believe they can reignite investor interest if we push ahead with our work programme. We are also considering the addition of new opportunities that will not overstretch our resources but can materially change the dynamic of the Company. We hope to update shareholders in this latter regard in the near future.

"For now we would like to thank shareholders for their continued support. Thor Mining has been able to survive the crippling downturn in our sector and has emerged leaner, fitter and ready to do business as the resource sector recovers."
