Company Update Progress Report on Washington Gold Project Due Diligence

ASX Announcement 13 June 2018 

Spectrum Rare Earths Limited (“SPX” or “the Company) is pleased to provide a progress report on the due diligence activities being undertaken by the company on the Washington Gold Project, northern California, U.S.A.

SPX has completed an initial site visit and has evaluated a large proportion of the geological database for the Washington Gold Project. The database includes over 150 diamond drill holes into the Washington Gold Mine quartz vein system. Based on the due diligence conducted so far, which has involved database integrity checking and separate, independent modeling of the lithologies from the digital diamond drill logs, plus the conversion of the State Plane Section grid to the metric NAD83 (2011) grid system, the company can report a large number of high grade drill intercepts from historic drilling, some of which are located in zones prospective for the discovery of additional gold mineralisation.

A significant number of exceptionally high-grade intercepts from identified but unmined mineralised zones include:

  • 1.98m at 167.4 g/t gold from 27.43m in Hole LTDDH-01 (2530 elevation) 
  • 0.61m at 106.3 g/t gold from 20.88m in Hole 2010 H6 (Dean Vein) 
  • 2.13m at 74.1g/t gold from 15.54m in Hole 2010 H4 (Dean East Vein) 
  • 5.18m at 59.4 g/t gold from 78.64m in Hole 1975 DH-04 (Lucky 7 Vein, Bend zone) 
  • 2.59m at 56.6 g/t gold from 74.68m in Hole DS-3-23A (Luck 7 Vein, South Madre) 
  • 5.91m at 20.6 g/t gold from 107.56m in Hole FG-97-01 (5060 Dean Vein) 
  • 2.13m at 33.8 g/t gold from 92.05m in Hole SFC-04 (Hellar vein)

A full list of significant intersections verified so far from the historic drilling is tabulated in Appendix 1 of this report.

Historic production from the Washington Gold Project has largely been centered on four veins (lodes). Early exploitation in hard rock was conducted on the North-South Vein, then subsequently on the Washington Vein which has been the largest and most productive vein in the mine. A sub-parallel vein, the Dean Vein, was discovered in the footwall of the Washington and most recently, the Lucky 7 Vein located to the south of the Washington and Dean Veins, which was the last vein to be exploited.

Figure 1 shows the position of the Washington, Dean and the Lucky 7 Veins in context with the current underground development, together with an aerial image showing the site infrastructure.

QUARTERLY REPORT 

For the period ending 31 March 2018

ASX Announcement 27 April 2018 


HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Desktop geological studies and recent electromagnetic results support the potential for the emerging Whaleshark Gold and Copper Project. 
  • Second stage of field work planning underway.
  • Ongoing commercial opportunity review for Whaleshark. 
  • Project acquisition review continuing with a focus on gold.

SUMMARY OF ACTIVITIES 

The March quarter saw Spectrums’ Whaleshark project advance to the second phase of ground geophysical testing and drill permitting. 

The Whaleshark Project is being explored for Gold and Copper mineralisation. Located at the northeastern end of the Carnarvon Basin, which unconformably overlies Archaean and Paleoproterozoic rocks of the Ashburton fold Belt and possibly the Mesoproterozoic Bangemall Basin.

Exploration 

Data processing is continuing to combine recently acquired information for granted Mineral exploration Licence E08/2924 and application E08/2972. A new regional geological interpretation is being formulated from processed drilling and geophysical datasets. A regional depth to basement study has been initiated to assist with drill target ranking and geophysical survey design. To support this study and our regional understanding, passive and active seismic surveys are currently being designed, budgeted and scheduled. 

The first phase of ground electrical geophysics (Time domain) revealed encouraging and much needed information to accelerate the development of the Whaleshark Prospect and test regional structural settings at Whaleshark Central and Whaleshark South.
