2010 Aeromagnetic Map
All located within the Red Wine peralkaline complex that has a potential strike length 53km.
All weather road access to within 20 - 50km of the various showings.
Radiometric zone traced up to 2 km long and 100m wide.
Rio Tinto outlined a Beryllium resource in 1961, however, the mineralization was never systematically assayed for REEs.
In 2009 Rare Earth Metals took 16 grab samples from a number of old blast trenches and obtained Beryllium values up to 0.97% BeO, Niobium values up to 2.35% Nb2O5, and TREO values up to 4.99%.
2010 channel sampling of old blast trenches returned assay values of 1.35% TREO / 0.52% Nb2O5 / 0.35% BeO over 30 metres.
Diamond drilling activities in 2010 tested the mineralized zone over a strike length of 600m with 6 drill holes.
Best intersection returned a value of 1.71% TREO / 0.24% Nb2O5 / 0.20% BeO over 27 metres within a wider zone of 1.04% TREO over 70.5 metres.
Mineralized zone has been traced on surface by prospecting for 1500 metres.
Mann #1 Drill Plan
Mann #1 Longitudinal Section
Located approximately 5.6 kilometres southwest along strike of the Mann #1 Beryllium deposit.
Mineralized outcrop and boulders appear to follow a northeast - southwest trending magnetic low.
The newly discovered Green Arrow Zone is located 250 to 1200m southwest along strike from the main Mann # 2 occurrence.
Grab samples from the Green Arrow Zone collected during 2010 prospecting activities returned assay values up to 9.08% TREO, 1.42% Nb2O5, 1.36% BeO
Over 6 kilometres of potential strike length between the Mann # 1 and # 2 mineralized trends will be targeted for drill testing in 2011.
Mann1-Mann2-Green Arrow Prospecting
Two Tom Lake
The Two Tom Lake showing occurs within a highly prospective 2000 meter diameter circular peralkaline syenite pluton.
Discovered by Brinex in 1967
Grab samples collected during 2010 prospecting activities returned values up to 2.00% Be0, 8.71% Nb2O5 and up 6.78% TREO.
Diamond drilling activities in 2010 tested the Two Tom Mineralized Zone over a strike length of approximately 900m with 10 drill holes.
DDH TT-01 intersected 1.35% TREO / 0.31 Nb2O5% / 0.36% BeO over 105.7m
DDH TT-10 was drilled 900 meters northwest of DDH TT-01 and intersected 1.03% TREO / 0.10% Nb2O5 / 0.11% BeO over 168.5m.
Two Tom Drill Results
Two Tom Longitudinal Section
Radioactive anomaly up to 75m wide and traced along strike for a distance of 2 kilometre.
Historic government grab samples returned values grading up to 0.79% Ce, 0.096% Y, 0.24% Nb, 0.16% Zr, and 0.14 % Be within a 1000 meter by 75 meter radioactive mineralized zone.
2010 prospecting activities collected 67 grab samples that returned assay values that ranged from 0.17% up to 5.29% TREO, 0.005% up to 2.18% Nb2O5 and 0.003% up to 0.56% BeO.
The distribution of the heavy rare earth oxides (HREO) as a percentage of the TREO composition (HREO/TREO) ranged from 1 to 40%.
North Red Wine #2
Mineralization consists of up to 40% Eudialyte, a Zirconium-Na-Ca-Silicate mineral with appreciable REEs and Y. The Company took seven grab samples from different parts of the zone resulting in ZrO2 up to 4.93% and Total Rare Earth Oxides (TREO) up to 1.04%. The rear earth oxide composition is comprised of up to 53% HREO as a percentage of the TREO.
A new rare earth element occurrence discovered during 2010 prospecting activities on airborne radiometric anomalies in the area of the North Red Wine #2 Showing.
The occurrence is delineated by a 1000 metre long boulder terrain. Grab samples collected in 2010 returned assay values up to 6.72% TREO and 1.23% ZrO2.
The Dory Pond occurrence represents a new style of mineralization that is enriched in heavy rare earth elements. Up to 64% HREO a percentage of the TREO.
Reconnaissance soil sampling in 2010 successfully delineated coincident rare earth element anomalies over the target area.
South Playfair Block
3 new rare earth element occurrences discovered during 2010 prospecting activities on airborne radiometric anomalies:
- PLY-S-2 (800 metre long airborne radiometric anomaly). Assay values from grab samples range from 0.11% to 1.38% TREO with between 37% to 43% HREO as a percentage of the TREO.
- PLY-S-05 (1000 metre long airborne radiometric anomaly). Assay values from grab samples range from 0.51% to 2.41% TREO with between 5% to 20% HREO as a percentage of the TREO.
- PLY-S-10 (3 metre wide pegmatite zone). Assay values from grab samples rages from 0.19% to 5.37% TREO with between 26% and 85% HREO as a percentage of TREO.
The South Playfair Block occurrences have a similar style of mineralization to that of the Dory Pond occurrence and is also enriched in heavy rare earth elements.
