RareX confirms scale and significance of Cummins Range Rare Earth deposit

RareX (ASX:REE) announces ‘excellent progress’ with the 2022 growth drilling program at its 100% owned Cummins Range Rare Earths Project in Western Australia.

A total of 26 drillholes, including 10 diamond drill (DD) holes, have been completed at the project to date over a strike length of 500m and have tested multiple mineralised positions to depths greater than 600m.

Drilling has identified three large south-westerly dipping carbonatite dykes that range from 50m to 250m in width.

These holes, combined with the historical database, have been used to create a geological model that confirms the quality and scale of the Cummins Range asset.

The model is constrained by drilling in the north-western portion of the 2km diameter pyroxenite carbonatite pipe. Over 50% of the pipe remains largely untested with less than 2,000m of sparsely drilled holes completed to less than 50m deep.

The company also notes that the identified mineralisation is controlled by structures that are related to the carbonatite dykes, however multiple target areas favourable for carbonatite dykes remain untested.

The Cummins Range Rare Earths Project is located near the township of Halls Creek within the Kimberley region of Western Australia and is host to Rare Earth Element (REE) mineralisation in a weathered portion of the underlying carbonatite intrusion.

It is serviced by the Great Northern Highway, which connects to the modern ports of Wyndham and Darwin.
