Rare Earth Minerals PLC’s partner, Bacanora Minerals Ltd, “has received analytical results for alkali metals and alkali earth metals from drilling conducted on the El Sauz and Fleur concessions (the “Concessions”).”
According to the press release in the Wall Street Journal, “The additional analytical data is being used by the Company to declare new inferred resources for potassium, rubidium, cesium, magnesium and strontium within the resource previously estimated for lithium.”
“The analytical results were obtained from pulps of core samples previously analysed in connection with the Company’s lithium (Li) drilling programs, which were re-analysed by ALS Global, an internationally recognized and ISO accredited laboratory, using method ME-MS81(1) , in order to achieve better definition of alkali values above detection limits of the previous analytical method that was used in connection with Li analyses (ME-MS41(2) ).”
