“We continued to advance at great pace with work completed across all our projects during the quarter," said Meeka's Managing Director Tim Davidson.
Drilling recommenced at the flagship Murchison Gold Project in June, targeting areas not yet included in its existing Mineral Resource. Results from the drilling program will be released next quarter.
Circle Valley has made a subtle pivot after samples from a 15,000m gold-focused drilling program were reanalysed for rare earths in early 2022.
Assays to date continue to confirm widespread, high-grade rare earth mineralisation, with up to 47% as valuable magnet rare earths. Reporting of assays will be ongoing during the September quarter.
It was a busy quarter at the Cascade Rare Earths Project, with assay results coming through from 190 drillholes. The assays showed shallow, high-grade, clay hosted rare earth mineralisation over a large acreage, currently 1,100km 2.
The northern half of the project (Northern and Central block), which is another 1,000km 2 remains to be drilled.
