EMC Metals Corp. (TSX:EMC) completed an initial program of 30 air core (AC) drill holes at its Honeybugle property in New South Wales (NSW), Australia. The results suggest the potential for scandium mineralization on the property similar to the Nyngan Scandium property that is north of Honeybugle. Highlights include a 3-meter intercept graded 572 ppm scandium, and identification of a 13-hole cluster that averaged 270 ppm scandium over a total 273 meters at an average continuous thickness of 21 meters per hole, and representing a total of 57% (354 meters) of total initial program drilling.

As quoted in the press release:

Highlights of initial drilling program results:
* The highest 3-meter intercept graded 572 ppm scandium (hole EHAC 11)
* EHAC 11 also generated two additional high grade scandium intercepts, grading 510 ppm and 415 ppm, each over 3 meters,
* The program identified a 13-hole cluster which was of particular interest;
* intercepts on these 13 holes averaged 270 ppm scandium over a total 273 meters,
* at an average continuous thickness of 21 meters per hole,
* representing a total of 57% (354 meters) of total initial program drilling.
* The 13 holes produced 29 individual (3-meter) intercepts over 300 ppm, representing 31% of the mineralized intercepts in the 273 meters of interest, and
* This initial 30-hole AC exploratory drill program generated a total of 620 meters of scandium drill/assay results, over approximately 1 square kilometer on the property.
