Maiden Drilling Program Commencement at Eclipse’s Flagship Project

Eclipse Metal Maiden Drilling Program

Eclipse Metals (ASX: EPM) (‘Eclipse Metals’ or the ‘Company’) begins its maiden drilling program at Ivigtût (also referred to as Ivittuut) and Grønnedal projects.

Earlier this year, the Company’s multi-element assessments indicated various distinct REE mineralisation styles at Ivigtût and Grønnedal-Ika, ranging from light to heavy REE.

Eclipse Metals is the first company to test the REE and multi-element potential at Grønnedal and Ivigtût. The maiden drilling program will be conducted at approximately 2,000m, following up on REE targets, and is expected to complete in October. The previous tenement holders focused on exploring the Ivigtût cryolite deposit.

Surface Sampling Program

Previous satellite imagery analysis over Eclipse Metals SW Greenland multi-commodity Ivigtût Project further highlighted magnetic anomalism and coincident REE mineralisation areas.

Eclipse Metals is said to undertake a surface sampling program in areas of interest defined by remote sensing surveys and the proximity of the historical mine precinct. The findings have provided Eclipse with targets for further field-checking and sampling.


Investigation around Ivigtût will include sampling for remnant waste dumps to assess cryolite, fluorite base metal content, and outcrop areas to assess REE and lithium prospectivity.

Eclipse Metals’ Executive Chairman, Carl Popal, has joined the Greenlandic drilling contractor and geologist on-site to oversee and report the progress.

Soon the exploration results will be published for the market. Visit the company website for further details.
