The potentially free dig offers a low waste-to-ore ratio, coupled with high-grade surface mineralisation, which together with the favourable location and the transport infrastructure already in place, distinguish Longonjo from the majority of other rare earth projects.
Taking advantage of the already well-established infrastructure of Angola, the project site is located mere 4 kilometres from the sealed national highway and rail line that connect the port at Benguela and the provincial capital of Huambo. It’s also in the vicinity of the power transmission line bridging Caala (38km east from the site) and the Luaca Dam interconnecter transmission line.
At Pensana Rare Earths, we are committed to a greener future. Our goal is to provide industries with a low-cost, high-quality, reliable solution to drive the production of greener energy and the electrification of transport around the globe.
SRK Consulting, world-renowned international mining industry consultants, have provided us with an inferred Mineral Resource estimate of:
Due to the high grades on the surface, the weathered zone contains the most favourable NdPr mineralisation for mining and processing. It forms a thick blanket of soft material, extending up to 75 metres in depth in some places. As the near surface, high-grade mineralisation remains open in several directions, this offers the potential for further extensions with additional drilling.
