Appia Energy (API) has located at least seven near surface rare earth and uranium deposits at its Alces Lake project in Saskatchewan.
The results came from the company’s Phase One field program on the property, which located the host rocks of a large rare earth element deposit.
The elements are hosted with five new exploration areas, outside of the main zone, which has been focusing its work on over the past couple of years.
The new exploration areas where mineralisation was encountered are the Ermacre, Mason, Sean, Ken and Scott zones.
During the work the company also found another exploration zone, named the Oldman zone. There were references to this zone in some previous work on the property, but Appia had been unable to determine exactly where it was located on the property
While exploring the last zone it discovered, the Hawker zone, the company also came across three separate uranium veins.
James Sykes, the Vice President of Exploration for Appia Energy said the company was continuing to discover more and more of the rare earth element mineral system along the surface of the property.
“This suggests we’re looking at a very large system across the property and also at depth. Our goal is to continue mapping and understanding this system, and these new occurrences give us more information for deposit targeting.
“We remain confident that additional surface and sub-surface exploration will produce us with many new discoveries,” he said.
Appia Energy (API) is up 4.3 per cent and is trading at C$0.24 per share at 2:00 pm EDT.
