brockman projectThe Brockman Project is centred 18km south-east of the historical gold mining centre of Halls Creek in the East Kimberley Region. The project site is accessed from the Great Northern Highway, which links Broome and Derby (450km from site) to Wyndham (380km from site), at Halls Creek.

The Project comprises ten Prospecting Licences and one Exploration Licence.

Drilling by the Company in 2011 concentrated on a unit known as the Niobium Tuff. Based on this drilling the Niobium Tuff hosts JORC resources totalling 36.2 million tonnes at 2151ppm Total Rare Earths Oxides (TREO)* including 1800ppm Heavy Rare Earths Oxides (HREO)*, 3545ppm Niobium Pentoxide (Nb2O5), and 8913ppm Zirconium Oxide (ZrO2) at a 1500ppm Nb2O5 cut-off that equates to a 1000ppm TREO cut-off (Indicated 27.1 million tonnes and Inferred 9.1 million tonnes at the same grade). It also contains large resources of the rare metals Tantalum (Ta), Hafnium (Hf) and Gallium (Ga).

Brockman Project Status

During 2011 Hastings completed a 51-hole drilling programme comprising both reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling over the central 1.7km of the main Brockman Niobium Tuff deposit. All holes were collared as RC with eight holes having HQ3 drilled from the pre-collar. A total of 7443m of RC and 739m of diamond drilling were completed. The collar locations for these holes on a google earth image, below.
