Commerce Resources Corp announced that preliminary mineralogical analysis has been completed on a suite of rock samples from the Mallard Prospect, situated within the Niobium Claim Group Property, which is part of the Company's Eldor claims located in Quebec, and adjacent to the Ashram Rare Earth Elements and Fluorspar Project. The Mallard Prospect is characterized by numerous drill intersections of high-grade niobium, along with variably associated high grades of tantalum, phosphate, and fluorspar.

Saville Resources Incis currently working on programs to complete the requirements of their Earn-in-Agreement with Commerce Resources Corp. for a 75% interest in the Property

Optical and scanning electron microscope mineralogical analysis of thin sections was carried-out on a total of fifteen core samples collected during the 2019 drill program completed at the Mallard Prospect. Analysis was completed at the University of Windsor as part of a research project related to the genesis of the Eldor Carbonatite Complex and its niobium mineralizing event(s). The main highlights indicated from the preliminary work are as follows:
Pyrochlore and columbite are the dominant niobium minerals present
There are indications that niobium has been mobilized - a mechanism that could potentially enhance the grade of a deposit
Mineralogy supports the model of a continuous niobium mineralized trend through the complex
