Brazilian Critical Minerals initiated an exploration and development program for its Ema Rare Earths Project.

With a 12-week exploration auger drilling program underway, the company aims to upgrade the high-grade central zone from inferred to indicated JORC category.

The company is engaging multiple engineering firms to manage the scoping study, which it aims to complete during the fourth quarter.

Environmental baseline data collection is set to recommence in July, and a preliminary licence application is targeted for the first quarter of 2025.
