OD6 Metals Limited (ASX: OD6) is showing Outstanding High-Grade Rare Earth Results

✦ Brett Hazelden, Managing Director and CEO of OD6 Metals Limited (ASX: OD6) brings proof of the pudding.

The REE Story is not an easy one for investors to get their heads around, so having Mr. Hazelden explain what Rare Earth Elements is all about is helping investors get a head start on how to gain some perspective on this sector.

The recent results are showing the market that OD6 Metals has the asset to make the company a future REE producer.

OD6 Metals Limited's recent announcement on 10 November 2022 entitled "Outstanding High-Grade Clay Rare Earths with Extensive Areas Confirmed at Splinter Rock" needs a bit of analysis and Mr. Hazelden breaks down the story and explains what all the numbers mean.

Investors who are keen on this sector and who are looking for a literally rock solid message that is not about 'selling dreams', this is a good conversation to tune in to.

"These initial rare earth assay results are outstanding and represent some of the highest grades and thickest clay-hosted rare earth intersections seen in Australia. The extent and consistency of these shallow, high-grade clays have resulted in four significant prospects being identified that are between four and seven kilometers in width which are open in length, on our 2,579km2 Splinter Rock project.

More importantly, these drill results validate historic assays, plus they extend the discovery of clay-hosted rare earths across a new drill line perpendicular to the original line. This bodes well for future drilling, which we anticipate will significantly grow the known mineralised area.

The Splinter Rock Project, with its proximity to port and renewable energy generation potential, now has the very real potential to be a globally significant, world class group of mineral systems that could be a multigenerational asset as the world transitions to the decarbonised economy.

The scale of these clays is hard to comprehend when you start talking multiple kilometers in one direction at a thickness of between 10 to 30m. The potential is massive."

The projects are considered prospective for clay rare earth elements (REEs), with the Company’s aim of delineating and defining economic resources and reserves to develop into a future revenue generating operational mine. Clay REE deposits are currently economically extracted in China who is the dominant world producer.

Rare earth elements (in particular, Nd and Pr), are becoming increasingly important in the global economy, with uses including advanced electronics, permanent magnets in electric motors and electricity generators (such as wind turbines) and consumer electronics.

Why OD6 Metals?

  • Emerging REE major new clay province in WA, potentially competitive with China’s deposits.

  • Dominant land position with over 4,800 km2.

  • Located close to Esperance port, sealed roads and renewable energy infrastructure.

  • Extensive Clay REE in 10 to 37m thick blanket over very large areas.

  • Wide intersections of TREO with excellent Nd-Pr concentrations of 20%.

  • Multiple targets for potentially globally significant REE resources.

  • Excellent regional metallurgy.

  • Clay REEs are typically low capital intensity and high margin product.

  • Significant supply shortage forecast due to rapid demand increase for renewable power, electric vehicles and electronics.

  • Critical metals being prioritised by Governments around the world (need for diversity of supply away from China).
