Aldoro Resources Ltd (ASX:ARN) has completed metallurgical sampling for nine targeted areas at the Kameelburg Rare Earths Project in Namibia.
The targeted areas were spread across the large Kameelburg carbonatite, with the freshest material from four locations to be sent to Perth for rare earth elements (REE) and niobium recovery.
Moving forward, the company continues to investigate the niobium potential at this region, alongside other key areas within the large Kameelburg carbonatite.
A portable Hilti rock core saw was utilised to drill 100-millimetre diameter holes, with fresh material being obtained for bench testing in the recovery of REE and niobium.
The peripheral dyke with a historic report of 4.75% niobium pentoxide assay was investigated and found to outcrop striking at 315 degrees over 15 metres and up to 0.5 metres wide and dipping to the east at 62 degrees.
The dyke is in a syenite host on the slope of the Kameelburg carbonatite and is obscured by colluvium, soil development and vegetation.
Furthermore, the historic niobium-rich peripheral dyke at Kameelburg continues to be investigated.
