T1-T2 Rare Earth Project

Minas Gerais, Brazil


Summit Minerals’ 100%-owned T1-T2 REE project covers approximately 641 hectares in Southern Minas Gerais, Brazil, in an area known for its rich mineral deposits. Thick, well-developed saprolite clay horizons, crucial for Ionic Absorption Clay (IAC) deposits, indicate potential for a large-scale rare earth deposit. The thick weathering profiles developed throughout the projects could potentially host IAC mineralisation.
