As quoted from the press release:

Phase I of the program will include a crew of seven individuals to complete work camp construction, do a detailed ground radiometric survey covering 300m by 150m of the REE occurrences, as well as further prospecting to follow-up the 2017 prospecting results in the Danny and Hinge zones. A Kubota KX 121 excavator will be brought to the site for stripping and trenching a 200m by 100m area in the Wilson and Ivan zones where sample grades of over 30 and 49 weight percent total rare earth oxides respectively were encountered in 2017.

Phase II of the program will include a crew of eight to ten individuals and will consist of approximately 2,000 metres of diamond drilling on selected high-priority targets over a 200m strike length defined during Phase I. Phase II is expected to be completed in September 2018.
