Kimba Kaolin / Rare Earth Element (REE0 Project)
ChemX Materials owns 100% of EL6634 and EL5920, covering a combined area of 718km2 located 100km south west of Whyalla on the Eyre Peninsular in South Australia. The deposits are located on freehold title used for cropping and sheep farming. ChemX has good relationships with landowners and the local communities. The area is host to a number of known kaolin deposits, with several outcropping over extensive areas.
Results of previous exploration at Kelly Tank, Bunora and Bunora East have identified the potential for significant tonnes. In particular, Kelly Tank has an exploration target of 55Mt to 130MT of kaolin.
ChemX has discovered REE’s across the tenements associated with the kaolin mineralization. The grades and widths that have been recorded provide confidence to progress exploration and metallurgical studies. Highlighted results include:
Samples have been sent for analysis to determine the parameters for separating the REE from the clay. A follow up exploration program is being planned for Q1 2023.
