MT SURPRISE PROJECT (Fulford Creek, Bonnor's Creek) - REE
(Held 100% by Orion Metals Limited)
Applications have been made for 1 Exploration Permit on Fulford Creek and 1 Mining Lease Application, north of Mt Surprise and north-east of Georgetown in far north Queensland. These tenements cover creek systems draining radiogenic granites where past alluvial tin operations have encountered heavy mineral concentrations that contain monazite and possibly xenotime.
Orion is planning to sample these drainages and have mineral assemblages identified and analysed for their contained rare earth elements.
