Two additional deep drill holes are planned from drill pads near the base of the hill and are designed to allow drilling to continue during the wet season. Samples from drill hole 22KKRC001 are being assayed at the ALS geochemistry laboratory in Perth, while drill samples collected from all other holes are in various stages of sampling, preparation and transportation.

The Kangankunde Rare Earths Project is a globally significant rare earth resource, hosting a carbonite intrusive with outstanding grades of up to 23.7% total rare earth oxides (TREO) that importantly contains very low thorium. The project continues to receive the strong support of the Malawi Government.

“Approximately 25% of the Phase 1 program is completed and advancing with three rigs operating. Drilling will continue through the wet season, helping advance mine development activities more rapidly,” said Alistair Stephens.
