Appia releases 43-101 on their PCH Project

Lots of very impressive progress being made over at Appia Resources recently -including filing an NI 43-101 technical report on their PCH Project in Brazil. Compared to most companies this is quite an amazing accomplishment because they only acquired the PCH Project last year at PDAC 2023!

Link to NI 43-101 report.

The short version of this report is:
6.6 Million Tonnes Indicated Grading 2,513 ppm TREO
46.2 Million Tonnes Inferred Grading 2,888 ppm TREO.

The discovery has been described as having ‘astonishing’ grades.
What is truly inspiring about this NI 43-101 in addition to the speed at which they have been accomplishing exploration, is the fact that they have only explored just over 1% of the property they have under their claims located in the state of Goias Brazil. The maiden resource was generated through only 2 zones known as Target IV and Buriti Zones. The bluesky upside with so much prospective area left to explore is obviously of very high potential. The PCH Project

Appia’s PCH Project-Goias, Brazil

Additional news: Appia has also just announced the hiring of a market maker company in order to monitor and assist in maintaining an orderly market in their shares. The company is called Generation IACP and is based in Toronto.
Press Release:

More additional news: Another significant development is the addition of a new VP of Exploration for Brazil operations, Mr Andre Costa. ” Mr. Costa will oversee the ongoing development of the Company’s PCH Ionic Adsorption Clay project located in Goias, Brazil.” As a consultant to a company called G21 Mr Costa has overseen various projects in Brazil including work for TSX/V listed Aclara Resources also in Goias state,  managed exploration work for Codelco,  exploratory and drilling work for Lithium Ionic, exploration work for Largo as well as Eco Mining and Bemisa. Therefore he has worked on many projects in various parts of Brazil and has extensive experience in the exploration field, making him an ideal candidate at an ideal stage of Appias development in that country.  In total Mr. Costa has 29 years of experience including 9 years in Canada with a stint as Resident Geologist at the Saskatchewan Geological Survey. Saskatchewan happens to be where Appias other rare earth exploration project Alces lake is located, so very good synergy there as well.



All in all some great things happening at Appia and with the current state of the junior exploration markets still undervalued and under appreciated, there seems to be plenty of room for upside in their market valuation.

Appia Rare Earths and Uranium Corp. in Brazil


Appia Rare Earths and Uranium company continues to report quite astonishing results from their PCH Property located in the state of Goias Brazil. This is a very favourable mining country and the property is in a very favourable district with 5 mines apparently located nearby and infrastructure also located very close.

The company has recently launched a new website where extensive media interviews, property descriptions and of course all press releases can be accessed. The website link is here: Appia Website .

The short report on the PCH property so far:

  • High grade rare earths in ionic clay close to surface.
  • Easily mineable with no radioactive waste elements to process.
  • Favourable mining laws in Brazil make getting permits much quicker
  • Highest grades reported of any recent RE deposit from Target IV
  • Target IV consists of 193.28 hectares of the total 40,963-hectare project
  • Company is working on a Maiden Resource Estimate (MRE) soon
    (hopefully in time for PDAC 2024)
  • Mineralization extends into the hard rock below the clay and is open at depth

The company states:
“We have taken significant strides in advancing the PCH Rare Earths Ionic Clay Project by enlisting the services of SGS Geological Services (SGS) to prepare a comprehensive NI 43-101 technical report and maiden Mineral Resource Estimate (MRE) focused on Target IV, which consists of 193.28  hectares of the total 40,963-hectares.  The project consists of 22 claims and holds immense potential for mineral exploration within a region known for its robust infrastructure and mining activity.”

-Stay tuned for more exciting news from Appia regarding the PCH Project, plus their Alces Lake rare earths project in Saskatchewan as well as exploration on their various uranium targets in Sask.

Latest Video: Appia Rare Earths and Uranium Corp.

Appia has been very busy with 2 drill campaigns happening simultaneously currently in 2023.



One is the Alces Lake Rare Earth Project located in northwest Saskatchewan. This is the 2nd year of serious diamond drill exploration on the property and the company is about to start releasing results from the summer/fall drilling.


A very fortuitous gain of an ionic clay PCH Rare Earth Project in Goias Brazil has also been keeping the company busy drilling. Assay results are just beginning to be delivered from this property also and they are looking excellent. They have gone deeper and have been rewarded, and also plan to explore much more of the property.

Exciting times for the company and management who have been working diligently on developing rare earth prospects for some years now. Congratulations that the hard work is paying off.

Here is a link to the Latest Appia Video with CEO Tom Drivas, (Oct 24 202).
This video is over an hour long and provides a comprehesive view of the latest company updates.

Appia acquires Brazilian Ionic Clay Property

There has been a lot of excitement at Appia Rare Earths and Uranium Corp. since PDAC 2023!
The acquisition of a Brazilian ionic clay property has caused a lot of eyebrows to be raised because a property like this doesn’t come around every day. It was apparently pursued by various highly interested companies but Appia came out with the prize.

The Cachoeirinha Project (the “PCH Project”) is located in the Tocantins Structural Province of the Brasília Fold Belt, Goiás State, Brazil. Here is the press release announcing the acquisition plus initial assay results:–announces-plans-to-proceed-with-the-acquistion-of-ionic-clay-project-brazil

API:CSE-Appia Announces Assay Results, Additional Land Acquisitions, A New Discovery And Drilling Update

Sept 01, 2021

Press Release Sept 01, 2021

Appia Energy Corp. continues to move full speed ahead with their 2021 exploration program at Alces Lake, Saskatchewan. Having recently added critical metals expert Jack Lifton to the Advisory Board, and with 13 geologists working at the project plus a winter camp set-up there is a lot of excitement in the air!

Recent results have added to the energy surrounding the Alces Lake rare earth/critical rare earth prospect with additional land being acquired.

“Acquisition of a further 11,055.4 hectares (27,318.5 acres) of land contiguous to the claim block at
Alces Lake, increasing the 100% owned landholdings to 35,682.2 hectares (88,,172.7 acres),
doubling the landholdings from the start of the 2021 exploration season.”


The Sweet Chili Heat zone (“SCH”), among others (Figure 2), is a new discovery that was found as a direct
result of the new airborne survey. As a result of the analysis of the geophysical data and geologic work done at the location, the SCH zone has been prioritized for drilling in the near future. Monazite mineralization has an exposed strike length of ~25m, with elevated radiation readings continuing under ground cover for an additional ~30m. Observed mineralization indicates that the SCH is a highly prospective target.”

With two drills active on the property, there are so many occurrences to explore that the diamond drilling program is being extended from 5000 meters to a possible total of 10,000 meters. As was mentioned earlier there is now a winter camp set-up and earlier grab samples have been assayed by the SRC (Saskatchewan Research Council) laboratories. With all this activity and focus we can expect a steady flow of news from Appia moving forward.

We will continue to follow this company on their exciting journey to become a rare earth/critical rare earth producer right here in our own Canadian back yard, one of the highest grade discoveries in the world.

Appia Energy-Research Capital Corp. Initiating Coverage-May 31, 2021

Research Capital Corp. has just initiated coverage on Appia Energy Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQB: APAAF) (FSE: A0I.F) (FSE: A0I.MU) (FSE: A0I.BE)

The report is focused on their Lake Alces high grade rare earth property in Saskatchewan.

This is a comprehensive 25 page report and is well worth the read if you are interested in exposure to rare earth mineralization projects with potentially explosive upside.

The high grades Appia has found so far rank 2nd in the world at around 16% according to the company and there are plenty of other reasons to take a very close look at what this company has to offer.


One great stroke of luck for Appia is a rare earth processing facility is currently being built in the same jurisdiction by the Saskatchewan Research Council (SRC). This $31 million facility is like a dream come true to a junior, especially with their early exploration results are showing high grade rare earth and critical rare earth mineralization in monzanite host rock.. This is significant because the method of processing rare earth minerals found in monzanite are well established.

(From the Research Capital Report)
“As noted above, the Saskatchewan government is constructing a 3,000 tonne per year REE processing facility north of Saskatoon – the first facility of this kind in Canada. The government intends the facility to act as a catalyst to drive the growth of the REE industry in Canada by “providing the early-stage supply chain needed to generate industry investment and growth”. The new
facility is expected to be operating in the fall of 2022.”

Appia is just about to start a $5 million diamond drilling program on Alces Lake where they have identified at least 70 targets so far on their 34,000+ hectare property.
