Perth-based explorer Emu NL is poised to drill a network of clay-filled, rare earths-prospective channels up to 6km wide and down to 100m in depth at its wholly-owned Condingup project near Esperance on Western Australia’s picturesque south coast.

The company believes its clays act as a host for rare earths leached from the underlying and fertile Booanya granite intrusions that conveniently outcrop in the area and which it sampled earlier this year. All three samples from the granites returned hits for rare earths, with results ranging between 1142 parts per million total rare earth oxides (TREO) and 2124ppm TREO, with magnetic rare earth oxides (MREO) making up about a quarter of the TREO.
