Tertiary Minerals has commissioned Wardell Armstrong International to review the fluorspar tonnage and grades at the MB project in Nevada, US.
Wardell will assess results from 108 drill holes over an area of 1.5 square kilometres where thick and flat-lying zones fluorspar mineralisation occurs between surface and depths of about 400m. Results are expected by end of January 2013.
Executive Chairman Patrick Cheetham said: "The historical drill results that we announced recently clearly identify the potential for a world class deposit of fluorspar on the MB project so it is important we move quickly to scope the size and grade of the deposit and evaluate its commercial potential."
