The Jungle Well Rare Earth Project is located 80km west of Leonora and was recognized for its REE potential, however, no analysis was carried out during a late 1990’s diamond exploration program. During 2007 a trench sampling programme identified significant RE values from an exposed dike of 6.9% and 8% REE.
A 2009 follow-up sampling produced the following results:
The Laverton Rare Earth Project is located 45km north of Mt Weld and has two untested circular magnetic features.
It’s important to note that rare earth mineralization occurs in residual regolith over a carbonatite plug at Mt Weld.
Carbonatite veins occur up to 5km from the main plug at Mt Weld which is surrounded by a 500-meter radius annulus of alkali metasomatism comprising alkali feldspar and biotite.
