WA Byro East Project
12 Priority Assays targeting Rare Earth Element (REE) mineralisation have been received with grades up to 0.79% ¹TREYO in rock chip sample BY23A0144 located at the Leatherback Carbonatite Alkaline Complex.
Four REE mineralised trends are emerging at the Leatherback Alkaline Complex with possible extensions in multiple directions under transported cover.
These REE mineralised trends are coincident with the Leatherback magnetic and gravity highs, interpreted to represent the geophysical extent of Leatherback Alkaline Silicate-Carbonatite Complex over 3.5km in strike.
A total of 375 rock chip samples were collected across the central four Byro East tenements (>600km2 ) during the months of October to December 2023. Rock chips aimed to assess 21 of 70 REE-Ba-Sr-Nb-Ca-Ni-Cr-Mg geochemical soil anomalies with 26 samples taken from areas prospective for magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE mineralisation.
Selection of samples for both REE and magmatic Ni-Cu-PGE styles of mineralisation were submitted for micro XRF analysis to determine element distribution and mineralogy.
Remaining rock chip assays and micro XRF results due mid-February.
