Exploration activities kick off at Mt Clere

KTA’s Mt Clere Project is a highly prospective opportunity for the Company as it hosts significant Rare Earth Element (REE) geochemical anomalies. These anomalies were first defined by BHP Minerals and afterwards verified by Astro Mining in the 1990s.

A low-impact exploration and reconnaissance commenced by KTA spans over the extensive 1,080km2 landholding, which is presently held under freshly granted licences.

Recently, the CEO of KTA, Mark Major, along with consultant geologists, undertook a seven-day field program during which the Company marked the onset of an extensive geochemical survey. The survey comprised collecting stream sediment and rock samples over areas where permission has been granted.
