discusses the completion of its 2021 Drilling Programme at its Monte Muambe Project, on time and within budget.
The objective of this first phase drilling programme is to provide an initial guide as to the extent of Rare Earth Elements ("REE") deposits across the site. The programme included testing the lateral extension of known REE mineralisation in the crater as well as exploring four new targets where the Company's geologist team identified possible deep carbonatite weathering, ideal for hosting REE deposits.
