OD6 Metals Limited (ASX: OD6) - Outstanding High-Grade Rare Earth Results

Rooster Talk Episode 67 is with Brett Hazelden, Managing Director and CEO of OD6 Metals Limited (ASX: OD6).

When we last spoke on Coffee with Samso Episode 158, Brett gave us a lesson on Rare Earth Elements and how investors should look at this sector. Brett is now showing the proof in the pudding.

The recent results are showing the market that OD6 Metals has the asset to make the company a future REE producer.

The recent announcement on 10 November 2022 entitled "Outstanding High-Grade Clay Rare Earths with Extensive Areas Confirmed at Splinter Rock" has not set up the company for a lot of attention from investors in the ASX.

Brett is narrating this episode to help us understand what all the numbers mean. It is not easy to understand what makes the Rare Earth project tick. However, if you are looking to invest in this sector and you are not playing the "selling dreams" message, then it is best you take notice.

"These initial rare earth assay results are outstanding and represent some of the highest grades and thickest clay-hosted rare earth intersections seen in Australia. The extent and consistency of these shallow, high-grade clays have resulted in four significant prospects being identified that are between four and seven kilometers in width which are open in length, on our 2,579km2 Splinter Rock project.

More importantly, these drill results validate historic assays, plus they extend the discovery of clay-hosted rare earths across a new drill line perpendicular to the original line. This bodes well for future drilling, which we anticipate will significantly grow the known mineralised area.

The Splinter Rock Project, with its proximity to port and renewable energy generation potential, now has the very real potential to be a globally significant, world class group of mineral systems that could be a multigenerational asset as the world transitions to the decarbonised economy.

The scale of these clays is hard to comprehend when you start talking multiple kilometers in one direction at a thickness of between 10 to 30m. The potential is massive."

Comments by Brett Hazelden 10th November 2022

In a fast moving REE business, there is merit in putting your money into the best option. I always tell people that if you want to take great photos, use a proper camera. The problem with that statement now is that smartphones take great photos too. The difference will then boil down to the photographer's skills.

OD6 appears to have great management and the projects are looking to be bulky and substantial. Do Your Own Research and check out this Rooster Talk.

About OD6 Metals Limited (ASX: OD6)

OD6 Metals is an Australian public company with a purpose to pursue exploration and development opportunities within the resources sector. The Company holds a 100% interest in the Splinter Rock Project and Grass Patch Project which are located in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, about 30 to150km north of the major port and town of Esperance.

The projects are considered prospective for clay rare earth elements (REEs), with the Company’s aim of delineating and defining economic resources and reserves to develop into a future revenue generating operational mine. Clay REE deposits are currently economically extracted in China who is the dominant world producer.

Rare earth elements (in particular, Nd and Pr), are becoming increasingly important in the global economy, with uses including advanced electronics, permanent magnets in electric motors and electricity generators (such as wind turbines) and consumer electronics.

Why OD6 Metals?

  • Emerging REE major new clay province in WA, potentially competitive with China’s deposits.

  • Dominant land position with over 4,800 km2.

  • Located close to Esperance port, sealed roads and renewable energy infrastructure.

  • Extensive Clay REE in 10 to 37m thick blanket over very large areas.

  • Wide intersections of TREO with excellent Nd-Pr concentrations of 20%.

  • Multiple targets for potentially globally significant REE resources.

  • Excellent regional metallurgy.

  • Clay REEs are typically low capital intensity and high margin product.

  • Significant supply shortage forecast due to rapid demand increase for renewable power, electric vehicles and electronics.

  • Critical metals being prioritised by Governments around the world (need for diversity of supply away from China).
