The exploration program is an important component of the growth aspect of the Browns Range Heavy Rare Earth Project.
Excellent results received from Dazzler drill programs – Mineral Resource update underway

Anomalous results from Dazzler Northwest warrant follow up

Between September and December 2019, the Company has conducted reverse circulation (RC) drilling at a range of prospects and deposits. The program included Mineral Resource infill and expansion drilling, greenfields and reconnaissance drilling programs.
The Company continues to be pleased with the results from the Dazzler deposit, with the heavy rare earth grades consistently significantly higher than the average grade at Browns Range. In addition, significant widths of mineralisation at Banshee South have highlighted the potential of that prospect area.
