ASX Release


Orion Metals Limited (ASX: ORM) announces that field work has recommenced on the Broughton Creek project with new areas of radioactive veinlets in basement rocks having been discovered in areas away from the main zone of interest.
To assist in the regional assessment programme a detailed collation and interpretation of all geophysical surveys is being commissioned and features warranting field verification will be delineated and followed up.
Concurrently ORM is planning a detailed radiometric survey over the 4 kms strike of
the altered amphibolite unit that hosts the allanite veins at the
Broughton Creek
Prospect. This will be completed using a continuous reading spectrometer with GPS
control to produce a contoured image of radioactivity variations at prospect scale.
Because the prospect is newly discovered, prospecting activities have been directed
at disclosing numerous
occurrences of very high grade U-REE veins where
individual analyses range up to in excess of 30% U3O8 and 9% REEs. Further data will be gathered to allow targeting of drill holes to test the distribution and extent of
these veinlets on an overall perspective.
It is intended to complete this work by the end of June at which point a decision will
be made as to the next phase of exploration on the project.

"The information in this report that relates to exploration results is based on information compiled by Mr Adrian Day, who is a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists and who has sufficient experience relevant to the style of mineralisation and type of deposit under consideration and to the activity which he is undertaking to qualify as a Competent Person as defined in the 2004 Edition of the
