DY6 Metals heralds field samples from new Machinga licence

DY6 Metals (ASX:DY6) has posted results of up to 3.22% total rare earth oxides (TREO) from field samples at its newly granted Machinga licence in Malawi, Africa.

Of the 305 soil samples taken, 21% were in excess of 0.1% TREO, while five of the 422 rock samples collected returned more than 1% TREO and up to 0.75% niobium.

The assays will assist in refining targets ahead of the next phase of drilling at Machinga. 

Sampling was initially planned to target the western side of maiden drilling in Areas 1 and 2 at Machinga before moving to the anomalous soil responses in the southern region of the Machinga Main area. 

The program was extended into the new licence and over the anomalous southern region covering an area of about 3km-by-2km along a northwest-southeast strike direction. 

According to DY6, two anomalies west of the main road of the licence show a more continuous character of higher TREO results, highlighting scale potential of REE mineralisation in the new area of the licence. 

The extension of the trend ventures into the Forestry Reserve, where DY6 has a forestry permit, allowing for future exploration activities. 

DY6 Metals is a heavy rare earths and niobium explorer which owns three HREE and critical metals projects in southern Malawi.
