Aldoro Resources Ltd (ASX:ARN) technical director Mark Mitchell tells Proactive the company has completed an orthophotographic survey at the Kameelburg Rare Earth Carbonatite Project in Namibia, paving the way for metallurgical sampling to start in the first week of September. Using a digital camera mounted in a fixed-wing aircraft, the company acquired high-resolution images over the carbonatite, leading to the creation of a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) to provide a better idea of the projects topographic surface.
A historical rock chip sampling program and a grid-based rock and soil sampling program at 100-metre intervals returned up to 2.12% total rare earth oxides (TREO) in the rocks and up to 2.02% TREO in the soils.
Nine potential sites were selected as core drilling sample sites, which are subject to ground investigations to establish that suitably thick homogenous material is available at the sites. Eight samples sit within the carbonatite outline with the ninth located in a thick marginal dyke.
