The drilling programme is being undertaken in support of the definitive feasibility study.

Pensana Rare Earths (ASX:PM8) is pleased to report assay results received from a further 41 drill holes of the 7,000 metre, infill and extension drilling programme at the Longonjo NdPr Project in Angola. The drilling programme is being undertaken in support of the definitive feasibility study.

As quoted in the press release:

Executive Director and COO Dave Hammond commented: “These high grade drill results are from well outside the limits of the current pit design and suggest the potential to extend the open pit and mine life at Longonjo.

“The drilling programme is now complete and we look forward to reporting results from a further 138 drill holes. Areas of deep weathering have been intersected in the north and south of the project that are also outside of the mine plan as defined by the PFS.

“Assay results are also awaited from infill drill holes in the main high grade weathered zone, as well as from the first systematic drill testing of a zone of fresh rock hosted mineralisation that has the potential to add a further dimension to the project.

“We expect to be able to upgrade significant amounts of currently Inferred Mineral Resource to the higher Indicated JORC category, thereby extending the current mine life at Longonjo after the completion of additional Definitive Feasibility Study work programmes.”

Rio Tinto is progressing an innovative new technology to deliver low-carbon steel, using sustainable biomass in place of coking coal in the steelmaking process, in a potentially cost-effective option to cut industry carbon emissions.

Over the past decade, Rio Tinto has developed a laboratory-proven process that combines the use of raw, sustainable biomass with microwave technology to convert iron ore to metallic iron during the steelmaking process. The patent-pending process, one of a number of avenues the company is pursuing to try to lower emissions in the steel value chain, is now being further tested in a small-scale pilot plant.

General Manager Matt Herbert described Ontario as an “undiscovered gem,” and spoke about the company’s work on its lithium projects in the province.


After making its ASX debut this past November, Green Technology Metals (ASX:GT1) has been hard at work in Ontario, Canada, where it holds three projects covering 35,000 hectares.

Speaking to the Investing News Network at the Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, General Manager Matt Herbert described the province as an “undiscovered gem” with the potential to contribute to the lithium supply chain in an environmentally conscious manner.

“I think the opportunity there is to create some very, very green lithium,” he said.


“At the moment, a lot of lithium is mined in Western Australia, (then) shipped to China for processing; from China it goes to European battery markets. I think by the time that lithium arrives where it’s supposed to arrive it’s left itself a bit of a carbon footprint,” Herbert explained during the conversation. “We have a real opportunity here to leverage low-carbon lithium in a place that is really screaming for security.”

Green Technology Metals has already seen support from members of the Ontario government, including recently re-elected Premier Doug Ford, and Greg Rickford, who is the province’s minister of northern development, mines, natural resources and forestry, as well as its minister of indigenous affairs.

“Both are massive supporters of critical minerals,” said Herbert. “Those things are important when you’re at the permitting and approval stage, and that’s exactly where we’re at. We’re able to leverage those relationships really well, and there’s just no better place to be at the moment.”
