Eclipse Metals Ltd announced that it has delineated a rare earth element (REE) exploration target at Grønnedal within its 100% owned Ivigtût multi-commodity project in SW Greenland. While the rare earth mineralisation at Grønnedal extends over 5 km by 2 km of nepheline syenite, the exploration target currently encompasses an approximately 3 km by 800 m section of ferrocarbonatite intruding the syenite.
Rare earth mineralisation at Grønnedal extends over 5 km by 2 km, with an exploration target focusing on 3 km by 800 m of ferrocarbonatite defined.
Extrapolating the outcropping area of ferrocarbonatite to a depth of 50m indicates a potentially significant exploration target of REE mineralisation.
The grade range for the exploration target comprises a notable proportion of magnet REE, which has the potential to be competitive with other REE projects globally.
A grid-based diamond drilling program is planned, along with detailed geological mapping and petrological studies to better understand REE mineralisation controls.
