Aruma Resources Intersects High-Grade Rare Earths In Eastern Goldfields

Aruma Resources Ltd (ASX:AAJ) in a maiden drilling program has intersected high-grade ionic clay rare earth elements at the Salmon Gums Project in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.

The project is strategically located and highly prospective for a range of minerals, situated 30 kilometres south and along strike, in the same stratigraphy, as Pantoro Ltd’s (ASX:PNR) high-grade Scotia Gold Project.

The drilling highlights at Salmon Gums include;

  • 11 metres at 904ppm TREO from 18 metres;
  • 6 metres at 770pmm TREO from 24 metres; and
  • 18 metres at 638ppm TREO from 12 metres.

Drilling also confirms a northern extension of recent REE discoveries by Meeka Metals Ltd (ASX:MEK) and OD6 Metals Ltd (ASX:OD6).

The grades and thicknesses, along with the highest-grade ionic clay REE reported in the region to date, highlights the largely untested REE potential of Salmon Gums.

Initial surface sampling revealed 8,700ppm TREO, with neodymium and praseodymium oxides constituting 22.5% of this total, providing a further indicator of the quality of these results.
