MiningNewsBreaks — Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0) Reports on Drilling Campaign at Brazil-Based PCH Ionic Clay Project

Appia Rare Earths & Uranium (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0), has released an update regarding exploration activities currently underway in Goias State, Brazil. According to the report, the company is employing a strategic combination of reverse circulation (RC) drilling, extensive auger sampling and cutting-edge LiDAR surveying to make significant progress in uncovering the potential of this “highly promising” deposit. Highlights of the report include news that the company’s exploration team has successfully drilled 65 RC and 45 auger holes, reaching a combined depth of 1120 meters; the RC drill program includes 300 holes at an average depth of +/- 12 meters; and an extensive airborne LiDAR survey has been completed, which covers 1,700 hectares across the core target IV project area, producing a detailed topographic map to assist with determining future exploration targets. In addition, the company noted that auger drilling will be used to test new areas for potential extension zones southwest of the core Target IV zone.

The company anticipates using the data collected during this work campaign to develop an initial Mineral Resource Estimate (“MRE”) on Target IV. Appia will also be looking into initial metallurgy and minerology over the coming months to determine the viability of separation using traditional well-known processes for these environments. The report noted that sample logging and interpretation has been done at one-meter intervals with an ionic adsorption clay horizon observed at depths ranging from 2 to 27 meters. “Working in Brazil has been a pleasure as we have an exceptional team on the ground, and we are working well with the support of the community,” said Appia Rare Earths & Uranium CEO Tom Drivas in the press release. “Our RC program is in full swing, and we have completed approximately 20% of our planned drilling program with an aim to be finished by the end of September. The priority with these initial work programs is the delineation of a Mineral Resource Estimate (‘MRE’) at Target IV, building upon the excellent work completed by the vendor from their previous assessment programs identifying this exceptional ionic clay adsorption mineralization.”
