Nuinsco Resources Limited reported the identification of up to 15 metre widths in drill core of high-grade rare earth element domains in iron-rich carbonatite rock at its 100%-owned Prairie Lake project near Terrace Bay, Ontario. Mr Paul Jones, CEO of Nuinsco, said that "Carbonatites contain the highest REE content of any igneous rock making them attractive exploration targets for REE mineralization, and ferrocarbonatites are usually particularly enriched with respect to REEs. These domains are assumed to be late stage intrusions into the Prairie Lake carbonatite complex, and their presence is an indicator that other, similar intrusions are possible.

As previously reported the Prairie Lake complex has unusually high concentrations of REEs in apatite, in particular neodymium oxide; the REE content with high proportional Nd203 content in association with other mineral commodities of economic interest in the Exploration Target makes it very attractive for further investigation."

Holes NP 1006 and 1007 were drilled in the southwest part of the Prairie Lake complex, an area domi nated by carbonatite mineralization.

Assays were as follows:
