Mayne Minerals targets a Rare Earths “HOTSPOT” in Northern British Columbia


VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mr. Robert Rosenblat, President of Mayne Minerals Inc, a private Vancouver based mining company reports that the company has acquired an option on a large land package designated as the Hart prospect, in Northern British Columbia, Canada. The Hart property is a frontier project containing multiple occurrences of both Light and Heavy rare earth elements (REEs) together with a significant amount of rare metals (RM). This project covers an area of more than 5000 hectares.                        

A reconnaissance grass roots sampling program in 2010, conducted by a previous property holder, discovered a large area of highly anomalous REEs/RM in both stream sediments and rock samples. The area of interest covers at least 1.5 km wide by 3.5 km long and extends over an elevation difference of more than 150 metres, suggesting an igneous rock mass exceeding 2 billion tonnes.

The project is comparable in size to other world class, low grade rare earth deposits. The Roundtop intrusion in southern Texas, USA, recently acquired by USA Rare Earth, contains approximately 480 million tonnes (total mass of inferred + indicated), grading 0.06% REE. Another deposit, comparable in size to Mayne Mineral’s project, is the Canakli deposit located in Turkey, at 494 million tonnes containing 0.07% REEs, which is contained within an intrusive rock of similar nature to that of the Company’s northern BC project. The average grade of Rare Earths contained in rock samples from the Property area is approximately 0.065%, comparable to the Roundtop and Canakli grades. The Project area is also highly enriched in rare metals. Reference: BC Geological Survey Assessment Report 32384, 2011.

The reader is cautioned that the REE content of the samples taken may not be representative of the project as a whole and additional work including trenching, bulk sampling and drilling under the supervision of a Qualified Person is necessary before any tonnage and grade can be established for the Hart project.

The 2010 reconnaissance program was limited as to the amount of samples which were collected on a random basis from streams and rocks. Assay results revealed high values in rare earth/metals. The heavy metal stream sediment concentrates and silts are extremely anomalous in tin, zirconium, niobium, yttrium, and total rare earth elements. Stream sediment sampling returned grades up to 18.7% tin together with tungsten, fluorine, boron, rubidium, and beryllium plus elevated scandium values. Rubidium values are exceeding 700ppm, an amount atypical for fertile or tin specialized granites. In addition, heavy mineral concentrates returned up to 10% for Zirconium oxide, greater than 0.4% Hafnium, and 2.0% Niobium to mention a few of the anomalous elements. Further, the initial report contained whole rock discrimination plots of the peralkaline granite, interpreted to indicate a unique Rare Earth/Metal “hot spot” or mantle plume.

The Company has recently completed an airborne magnetometer-radiometric survey on the Property; results are pending. A Company consultant will be leaving soon to the property to do further sampling and mapping.

Mayne Minerals has other claim holdings throughout BC, including in the Golden Triangle, Telegraph Creek area, and on Vancouver Island. Also, the Company has an option on a former Graphite Producer, the Bell Mine, in Buckingham Quebec (See Mayne Minerals website for further details).


Mr. Robert Rosenblat has had extensive experience in mining, financial and marketing with over 65 years experience in the junior mining sector throughout Canada. In 1978, he was instrumental in the development of the Kipawa rare earths deposit in Quebec, which was later acquired by Unocal.

Mr. Wayne Lockhart P.Geo., a director and Consultant to the Company who was formerly Professor of Geology at the University of New Brunswick. A Project Generator with 60 years experience with major, mid-sized and junior companies, he has been involved in the founding and listing of a number of TSX-V junior exploration companies. His projects have resulted in numerous discoveries of base, precious metals and gems, industrial minerals within Canada, Philippines, Africa and Greenland. He was instrumental in leading several of these discoveries into production.

The Company looks forward to reporting the results of field examination of the Hart prospect and to confirming the REE and Rare Metal values.
