Northern Minerals discovers two new rare earth prospects in WA
September 17th, 2018
ASX listed heavy rare earths producer Northern Minerals, has proven not to be a one trick pony with a new rare earths discovery in the vicinity of, but not immediately adjacent to its world-class Browns Range rare earths mine in W.A.
New assay results from RC drilling at the Dazzler and Iceman prospects turned up exceptional grades and thicknesses of rare earth mineralisation, including highly elevated contents of the sought-after rare earth element, dysprosium.
At Dazzler, intersections include 18 metres grading 9.1% total rare earth oxide from only 25m down-hole that incorporate a significant 0.86% dysprosium oxide.
Another hole returned 21m @ 2.15% TREO from 24m down-hole and also included 0.2% dysprosium oxide content.
At Iceman, shallow drilling produced an 11m intercept grading 4.83% TREO from 13m down-hole that included a very respectable 0.45% dysprosium oxide.
Iceman is located 400m along strike to the southeast of Dazzler. Read more…
