The Splinter Rock project is located approximately ~150km by road northeast of Esperance. The REE mineralisation at the Splinter Rock Project occurs in the weathered profile (in-situ regolith) adjacent to Booanya granitic basement rocks which are enriched in REE.
Drilling and geological analysis at its flagship Splinter Rock has shown widespread, thick, high-grade clay hosted REE deposits that extend over hundreds of square kilometres. Metallurgical testing using hydrochloric acid to leach the rare earths have resulted in positive REE recoveries with optimisation ongoing.LEARN MORE
The Grass Patch project is located approximately 30km to 100km north of Esperance. Soil geochemistry and water bore anomalies indicate high level of prospectivity for REE.
Good results have been obtained from an initial reconnaissance drilling program identifying three progress areas of Belgian, Circle Valley and Scaddan which are currently undergoing metallurgical testing.LEARN MORE
Rare earths elements (REEs) are a series of elements found in the earth’s crust that are becoming critical to the future sustainability of many modern technologies including electric cars, wind turbines, smart phones, consumer electronics, along with many other applications.
While these elements themselves aren’t rare, finding a project with high enough concentrations to make mining economically viable is in fact rare.LEARN MORE
The Board of OD6 acknowledges the Esperance Nyungar and Ngadju Peoples of the land and waters upon which our exploration is focused, and the Whadjuk People of the land upon which our offices are based.
We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners and their elders past, present and emerging.LEARN MORE
