MetalsGrove Mining Ltd (ASX:MGA) has kicked off a detailed surface mapping program ahead of drilling at its Bruce Rare Earths Prospect in the Northern Territory.

A 6,000-line kilometre airborne magnetic and radiometric survey has been completed at the project with data interpretation now underway.

Previously, MetalsGrove has identified a broad conductor along strike from the Plenty River mine which is adjacent to magnetic features interpreted to be components of the pegmatite intrusion.

Surface field mapping and sampling are underway to identify and refine additional drill targets for testing during the planned drilling program scheduled to begin after completion of the current field program.

Moving forward, this drill program will be designed to test the bedrock conductor and historical pegmatite mines in the upcoming December quarter.

“Important role”

MetalsGrove managing director Sean Sivasamy said: “Following the completion of the successful field mapping program in WA at our Upper Coondina Lithium Project, we are pleased to have our technical team completing the same exercise on the ground at Bruce.

“This program will play an important role in confirming the priority drill targets for our maiden drilling program at Bruce scheduled for later this year.

“The Arunta Project hosts a suite of exciting critical metals prospects, and our team is systematically working through each prospect to prioritise the most compelling targets for initial drill testing.

“I look forward to providing further updates on our progress.”

About Bruce Rare Earth Prospect

The Bruce Rare Earth prospect is within the Central Desert Region of the Northern Territory and covers an area of about 17,722 hectares.

Significant rare earth occurrences have been found in the Harts Range and Plenty River mica fields within the Irindina Province. Joklik (1955), and Daly and Dyson (1956), provided details of the mica mines and documented numerous minerals associated with the host pegmatites.

MetalsGrove is exploring pegmatite, breccia, vein and alteration-hosted rare earth mineralisation at Bruce.

A Mine Management Plan (MMP) has been approved for Box Hole and Edwards Creek prospects, while an MMP is in progress for Bruce Prospect
