Highlights from recent drilling include:
- 10 metres at 2.08% Total Rare Earth Oxide (TREO) including 0.69% Nd2O3 + Pr2O3
- 9 metres at 1.56% TREO including 0.62% Nd2O3 + Pr2O3
- 6 metres at 1.94% TREO including 0.61% Nd2O3 + Pr2O3
Results from the Fraser’s Southwest area confirm a northern extension of the Auer deposit. Auer North is interpreted to contain three mineralised zones, each with approximate strike lengths of 250 metres. Further drilling is required to the north, at depth beneath and between the three mineralised zones.
The Yangibana Project hosts JORC Indicated and Inferred Resources totalling 12.36 million tonnes at 1.10% TREO including 0.35% Nd2O3 + Pr2O3 comprising 8.13 million tonnes at 1.11% TREO Indicated Resources and 4.24 million tonnes at 1.09% TREO in Inferred Resources.
Rare earth elements are used in a wide variety of applications including smart phones, hybrid cars, wind turbines and energy efficient light bulbs.
