High Purity Halloysite confirmed at Poochera
High-purity halloysite has been reported from analysis of samples taken during the April-May 2019 drilling program at the Poochera Halloysite-Kaolin in South Australia.
Halloysite concentrations of up to 91% have been taken from drill holes containing up to 20 metres of high whiteness kaolinised granite.
A selection of 9 holes drilled at Carey's Well, Tomney and Condooringie recorded an average of 59% halloysite in the minus 2 micron fraction.
The highest halloysite levels were returned from the Condooringie prospect, located 4 kms north of the Carey's Well deposit.
Drilling is currently in progress at Condooringie with up to 88 aircore holes planned targeting this halloysite rich area.
The Global Innovative Center for Advanced Nanomaterials (GICAN), University of Newcastle, NSW, is currently producing some exciting research results using Carey's Well halloysite in battery technology development, water purification, carbon capture and hydrogen storage. Each of these applications has the potential to present unlimited global development opportunities.
The update to the Carey's Well Mineral Resource is nearing completion and will be reported shortly.
An expanded Scoping Study and Feasibility Studies are advancing with the results expected through the first half of 2020.
