Vital Metals announced an updated mineral resource estimate for the Tardiff Upper Zone at the Nechalacho Rare Earths Project, showing a 79% increase in resource tonnage to 213 Mt at 1.17% TREO, with a 49% increase in total contained TREO tonnage to 2.48 Mt.

Prepared by SLR Consulting (Canada), the update reveals over 623,000 tonnes of neodymium oxide plus praseodymium oxide, indicating a nearly 49% increase from the previous estimate.

With further drill results expected and a scoping study due in late 2024, Vital Metals anticipates developments leveraging Tardiff's rare earth resource base.
