Ucore Rare Metals Inc (TSXV:UCU,OTCQX:UURAF) announced results from extensive alluvial rare earths and tin multi-metal property holdings in the Ray Mountains of Alaska.
As quoted in the press release:
Sample results from late summer field investigations point to potential economic grade concentrations in at least three drainage basins: the upper Kilolitna River, the Ray River, and No Name Creek. Each of these exhibits numerous surface exposures of alluvial gravel and sand containing a threshold of at least 0.15 kg/cubic meter (0.22 lbs/cubic yard) of REE and/or tin (Sn), along with by-product concentrations of tungsten (W), zirconium (Zr), niobium (Nb), and tantalum (Ta). Locally samples contain up to 1 kg/m3each of Sn and REE in the extensive floodplain of the Ray River. Mineralized sediments from No Name Creek and the Caribou Heights prospects contain up to 9 kg Sn/m3.
