Lanthanein continues to build up its pipeline of future drill targets at its Lyons rare earths project in Western Australia with recent fieldwork discovering new ironstones.

It has also identified 41 new targets at the project through the use of high-resolution Worldview Satellite Imagery.

The identification of these new targets follows Lanthanein Resources’ (ASX:LNR) visual observation of continuous rare earth element-bearing ironstones in recent drilling.

Technical director Brian Thomas said the identification of new targets further highlights the prospectivity of the Gifford Creek Carbonatite Complex.

“An extensive sampling program will commence shortly to follow up on the satellite imagery spectral targets of potential ironstones and quartz outcrops that may host rare earth mineralisation,” he added.

“We are eagerly awaiting the assay results from our first drill program which intersected consistent ironstones at Lyons 11, 12, 13 and 27 prospects.

“The visual logs of RC chips confirm the ironstones are continuous along strike and at depth, providing a solid base for future drill programs to build out any potential REE resources.”

Upcoming work

The company’s upcoming ground truthing and outcrop sampling work is expected to help determine which spectral satellite imagery best detects outcropping ironstones.

Additionally, rock chip sampling results will help define additional near-term REE drill targets.

Further rock chip sampling, high resolution satellite spectral interpretation and drilling programs are planned to investigate additional targets such as thorium and magnetic anomalies throughout Lyons and the high priority structural target along the major Bald Hill lineament which transects both the Edmund and Lyons project areas.
