Summit Minerals Limited (ASX: SUM) ("Summit" or the "Company") 2 mins read

Mount Hawthorn, WA, June 11, 2024 — Summit Minerals Ltd (ASX: SUM), an Australian-focused ASX-listed battery mineral exploration Company, is delighted to announce high-grade assay results from the initial sampling at the Equador Niobium and Rare Earth Elements (REE) Project in northeastern Brazil. These promising results further reinforce the project’s potential and set a solid foundation for accelerated exploration.

Key Highlights of the Assay Results:

  • Exceptional high-grade concentrations of Niobium (Nb2O5) and Tantalum (Ta2O5) across multiple samples from the Equador project, including standout assays of 40.84% Nb2O5 and 15.74% Ta2O5.
  • Discovery of new pegmatite formations indicative of significant mineralization, alongside previously unmapped artisanal mining sites.
  • Commencement of a drone magnetic survey to enhance geological mapping and identify potential pegmatite pathways under the shallow alluvial cover.

Strategic Project Location and Infrastructure: The Equador Project is strategically positioned close to essential infrastructure, including direct access to power and water supplies, and is easily accessible via a major local highway. This logistical advantage facilitates efficient ongoing exploration and future development.

Summit’s Managing Director, Gower He, commented, 

“The highly encouraging assays from Equador thus far has further solidified the prospectivity of the project and has given us tremendous confidence to accelerate our exploration program. We eagerly anticipate the results of further rock chip assays and look forward to keeping the market updated with the results as they are received. 

Our Equador project in located on an existing road within close proximity to established highways (20 km away), it also has direct access to water and renewable electricity supplied by a windfarm nearby. During my recent trip to the project, I had the opportunity to meet and engage with the local landowners. It was pleasing to learn that they are extremely supportive of mining in general and of Summit in particular. We look forward to advancing our project and providing employment opportunities to the local communities in the region.”
