eMetals extends indicators of tungsten, niobium and rare earths at Nardoo Well, drilling to begin this quarter

eMetals (ASX: EMT) has discovered new tungsten, niobium and rare earth element (REE) anomalies at its Nardoo rare metal project located within the Gascoyne region of Western Australia, 840m north of Perth.
Highly anomalous tungsten has been identified at the newly discovered Miru prospect over a 2km strike length.
In addition, highly anomalous REE neodymium has been identified at another recently discovered area, Cairn Hill.
Meanwhile, an 8 square kilometre anomalism indicating the presence of light REE lanthanum, niobium, lithium and tungsten has been defined around a known pegmatite occurrence at Beryl Well and new areas of REE enrichments defined in more than 4sq km of catchments.
eMetals director Matthew Walker said that, although the Miru prospect appears the “standout” with more than 2km of highly anomalous strike, the anomalous neodymium is also of particular interest.
“The results are considered highly encouraging and present multiple drill targets for the company to follow up as soon as practically possible,” he added.
The company plans to begin drilling targets during the present September quarter.
eMetals uncovers what others missed
In late April, eMetals reported that reconnaissance steam sediment sampling at its Nardoo Well project had discovered new niobium, tungsten, tin and tantalum anomalies.
The find was made at a project that has seen many exploration companies come and go over several decades.
But eMetal’s results were described by the company as much better than recorded by the earlier explorers, which included Mincor (ASX: MCR), Westralian Sands — now Iluka Resources (ASX: ILU), and Rare Resources.
The sampling results earlier this year included 217 parts per million (ppm) niobium and 0.03% tin; 335ppm niobium and 0.03% tin; 129ppm tungsten, 183ppm niobium and 0.05% tin; and 113ppm tungsten, 65ppm niobium and 0.03% tin.
eMetals said today it has progressed exploration of the project after recognising the high prospectivity of the area for tungsten, lithium-tantalum-niobium and rare earth-enriched pegmatites.
This latest surface geochemical program followed up the stream sediments results announced in April.
Geochemical results at Miru showed peak value of 1,090ppm, or 0.11%, tungsten. Anomalous tungsten was also found at the Boomerang prospect over 1.8km of strike peaking at 130ppm, while new tungsten anomalies at Cairn Hill returned up to 125ppm tungsten.
It was at Cairn Hill, too, that eMetals found a coherent REE anomaly with a peak 0.27% total rare earth oxides plus yttrium, with the battery element neodymium oxide peaking at 463ppm.
Nardoo East soil sampling has defined a tungsten anomaly and a new 6km strike length of anomalous tungsten and lithium.
The company also collected 148 rock chip samples across the tenements during the previous sampling program, of which 104 were not anomalous.
