Tempest Minerals encouraged by nickel and rare earths find at Meleya

Tempest Minerals Ltd (ASX:TEM) is eager to expand the potential of the Meleya Project in WA, where a 2-kilometre rare earth element (REE) anomaly has been identified at the Outlaw target.

The mineral exploration company recently received geochemistry results from surface sampling carried out at the eastern portion of Meleya in the fourth quarter of last year, with the REE anomaly showing readings of up to 929 parts per million (ppm) cerium and 457 ppm lanthanum in soil assays.

This new area adjoins the recently-announced copper-zinc anomaly at the Remorse target, and with very little to no prior exploration in the area, the discovery adds to the potential for multiple precious, base and critical metal mineralisation systems within the Tempest portfolio.

The company is planning more programs to further progress the targets.
