Kameelburg Niobium Assays Reveal up to 9.03% Nb2O5

Aldoro Resources Ltd (“Aldoro”, “The Company”) (ASX: ARN) is pleased to confirm latest niobium results with all six (6) dyke sample assays ranging from 5.8% to 9.03% Nb2O5. These latest results highlight the potential of the area around the periphery of the Kameelburg REE- rich carbonatite, known to contain niobium-rich dykes with historical samples reporting up to 4.75% Nb2O5 (Refer to announcement ASX: ARN 20 March 2023).


HIGHLIGHTS:
  • Latest niobium assays received with results ranging from 5.77% to 9.03% Nb2O5 for all six (6) selected niobium rock chip samples
  • Niobium samples located within a pyrochlore-rich dyke and has limited exposure due to its presence along the colluvium rich shadow of the giant carbonatite (with diameter spanning 1.4km and rising to 275m in height)
  • Drilling of niobium-rich dyke planned - discussions advancing with experienced local drilling contractors
  • Further investigation to proceed on additional dykes and niobium potential along peripheral zones of the Kameelburg Project

Recent investigation at this peripheral dyke revealed an outcrop striking at 315o over 15m, up to 0.5m wide and dipping to the east at 62o. The dyke is located in a nepheline syenite host of the Kameelburg carbonatite and is obscured by colluvium, soil development and vegetation.

Next steps for Aldoro

The Company plans to undertake drilling as part of further investigation into the extent of niobium enrichment within the peripheral dyke. Discussions are advancing with local experienced drill contractors on this front. Aldoro also continues to investigate additional dykes along peripheral zones of the Kameelburg carbonatite, with the intention of unlocking further niobium potential within the entire project region.

Unearthing Efficiency: How the Mining Industry is Using AI to Make Data-driven Discoveries

Since OpenAI launched ChatGPT to the public in November 2022, artificial intelligence (AI) has exploded into the mainstream, turning into a gold mine for companies that have become early adopters.

What are the implications of AI for the mining sector? Can AI help revitalize investment in the chronically underfunded exploration stage? Can it provide the tools companies need to improve operational efficiency?

This year at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, AI and machine learning were broadly featured in several presentations, with participants aiming to answer those and other questions, as well as provide insight into how AI is being deployed and what it means for the future of the mining industry.

ESG Now the "Price of Admission" for Miners as Investors Seek Responsible Companies

In today's rapidly evolving investment landscape, the spotlight isn't just on financial returns; it's also on environmental sustainability, social responsibility and governance — better known as ESG.

According to a 2021 report from Accenture Global (NYSE:ACN), 59 percent of investors want miners to aggressively pursue decarbonization and be market leaders in that effort. The report, titled "Global Institutional Investor Study of ESG in Mining," was based on responses from 200 public and private institutional investment firms from around the world.

On a similar note, 63 percent of respondents said they would be willing to divest from or avoid investing in mining companies that fail to meet their decarbonization targets or don't pursue decarbonization aggressively enough.

Spodumene Bearing Pegmatite Swarm Mapped with Samples up to 3.01% Li20 – West Spargoville Project

Marquee Resources Limited (“Marquee” or “the Company”) (ASX:MQR) is pleased to provide an update of ongoing exploration and targeting activities at the West Spargoville Project (“WSP” or “The Project”). Recently, Company geologists completed further mapping and sampling to better define targets for the planned upcoming drilling programmes. Leveraging off previously acquired geochemical, geophysical and drilling data, the Company has identified a pegmatite swarm with over 40 fertile pegmatites identified with mapping, sampling and portable-XRF (p-XRF) analysis confirming the presence of spodumene in 10 of the individual pegmatites (Figure 2). The recent sampling returned a best rock chip assay of 3.01% Li2O (24WS0010) with numerous results >1% Li2O (Table 1). The Company continues to collaborate closely with Joint Venture Partner Mineral Resources Limited (ASX:MIN) regarding all facets of the WSP Project and the ongoing 2024 exploration campaign.
