OD6 Metals Ltd (ASX:OD6) MD Brett Hazelden discusses with Proactive assay results from Phase 3 drilling at its Splinter Rock clay-hosted rare earth element (REE) project - northeast of Esperance in Western Australia. He says the extent of the Centre Prospect is simply massive, with some of Australia’s thickest high-grade clay hosted REE intercepts of up to 77 metres at more than 1,400ppm TREO, with several zones in excess of 2,000ppm TREO.
Hazelden said: “These assay results are truly exceptional, surpassing our previous outstanding results.
“The extent of the Centre Prospect is simply massive, with some of Australia’s thickest high-grade clay hosted REE intercepts at up to 77 metres at over 1,400ppm TREO, with several zones in excess of 2,000ppm TREO.
“The consistency of mineralisation across such a vast 14-kilometre by 5-kilometre zone highlights the quality and significance of our discovery.
“Importantly, a deep, wide clay channel extensional to the southern end of the resource has returned grades in excess of 1,400 ppm TREO.
“The volume and grades in this area alone create the strong potential for substantial resource expansion.
“The geological team of internal and external experts will now start reviewing the current Splinter Rock mineral resource estimate with a view to update this early in the new year.”
