APPIA COMMENCES 2019 SUMMER EXPLORATION AND DIAMOND DRILLING PROGRAM ON HIGH-GRADE CRITICAL RARE EARTH ELEMENTS ALCES LAKE PROPERTY

 

 

 

 

 

Appia Energy Corp.  (CSE:API) (OTCQB:APAAF) (Germany: “A0I.F”, “A0I.MU”, “A0I.BE”) is pleased to announce that a field exploration crew has mobilized to the Alces Lake property northern Saskatchewan, for the summer 2019 exploration program.

 

ALCES LAKE

 

The Alces Lake Property encompasses some of the highest-grade total and critical rare earth elements mineralization in the world, hosted within seven surface showings that remain open at depth.  CREE is defined here as those rare earth elements that are in short-supply and high-demand for use in permanent magnets and modern electronic applications such as electric vehicles and wind turbines, (i.e: Neodymium (Nd), Praseodymium (Pr) and Dysprosium (Dy)).  The Alces Lake project area is 14,334 hectares (35,420 acres) in size, and is 100% owned by Appia.

 

Follow-up on the 2018 program is planned to include;

 

  • a detailed ground gravity survey exploring for high-grade rare earth oxide concentrations beneath the surface, similar to the Charles Lower zone;
  • 3,000 m of diamond drilling on the Ivan/Dylan/Dante zones, Bell/Charles/Charles Lower zones, and reconnaissance drilling on select geophysical/geological targets;
  • follow-up prospecting and stripping overburden in and around previously identified radiometric outcrops within a large radiometric anomaly;
  • airborne radiometric, magnetic and EM geophysical survey over the Forget Lake and Oldman River monazite showings, to be followed with reconnaissance prospecting of said showings; and
  • continuing heavy mineral and monazite-bearing sand evaluation of the Alces Lake beach sands

 

Exploration permits for the proposed summer activities are in-hand.

The Company also has a 100% interest in 12,545 hectares (31,000 acres), including rare earth element and uranium deposits over five mineralized zones in the Elliot Lake Camp, Ontario, which historically produced over 300 million pounds of U3O8 and is the only Canadian camp that has had significant rare earth element (yttrium) production.

 

Appia’s technical team is directed by James Sykes, who has had direct and indirect involvement with over 550 million lbs. U3O8 being discovered in five deposits in the Athabasca Basin.
