Megawatt's Australian Rare Earth Projects prospective for Uranium Mineralization

source:PR Newswire

Northern Territory has well known uranium deposits 

Moderating global uranium inventories, mine closures and growing pursuit of green energy have led to a resurgence in the uranium price over the past 12-18 months, which has re-kindled significant interest in the sector. Within Australia, the Northern Territory has some of the best-known and high-grade uranium deposits. Moreover, the Northern Territory has a long history of allowing uranium mining, which commenced in 1953. 

Continuing due diligence has uncovered historical information that verifies the Artic Fox and Isbjorn properties are prospective for uranium mineralization. This development readily complements the known REE potential.  

Uranium potential within Artic Fox and Isbjorn

To recap, the Arctic Fox property is contiguous to Arafura Resources' (ASX: ARU) Nolans Bore Project, which is primarily known for its REE potential as it has a JORC Compliant Mineral Resource.  However, according to the 2012 Annual Report, ARU reported that it had a defined a Uranium Resource that complied to the JORC (2012) Code.  

More specifically, within the Artic Fox property are historical assayed surface readings and radiometric trends that are potential indicators of uranium mineralisation. Meanwhile, across the Isbjorn property, assayed results at surface from several different locations indicate the potential for uranium mineralisation. 

With the known REE potential now bolstered by uranium prospectivity, the Board is reviewing strategies to accelerate exploration work across the two properties.  

David Thornley-Hall, Chief Executive Officer commented: 'The growing demand for green energy solutions is starting to occur at an accelerated pace. Consequently, the Board was pleased to be advised of the uranium prospectivity within our two Northern Territory properties, as it clearly complements the REE potential. Our Australian geology team will be focusing on identifying viable uranium and REE targets for closer scrutiny.'
