Aruma Resources announced results in its inaugural rare earth elements drilling program at the Salmon Gums Project in Western Australia's Eastern Goldfields.

High-grade ionic clay REE zones were discovered, including notable intercepts of 11m at 904ppm TREO and 18m at 638ppm TREO.

Surface sampling unveiled the region's highest recorded REE grade at 8,700ppm TREO.

Aruma Resources plans a second phase of air core drilling in the next quarter to evaluate the Salmon Gums Project's REE resource potential further.
