Mt Monger Resources see potential growing for a district-scale rare earth opportunity at Pt Kidman after completing a review over its prospect in Western Australia’s highly prospective East Laverton region.
After hitting into widespread rare earths at shallow depths, the explorer is building geological confidence that further exploration will lead to discovery of similar and even higher mineralisation.
It has the territory to explore, with three broad areas covering over two hundred kilometres earmarked for drilling and additional areas expected to be unveiled as it progresses.
Pt Kidman sits among three thousand square kilometre holdings at East Laverton prospective for gold, nickel, base metals, and rare earths — standing out as one of the hottest commodities even prior to a critical US-Australia trade deal.

“A work program since that time has recently culminated in a reconnaissance aircore drilling program that confirmed the presence of broad, shallow mineralisation — the successful drilling has emphasised the potential scale of the REE mineralised terrane,” managing director Lachlan Reynolds said.
“We are keen to understand if the area contains higher-grade zones and what variations exist in the basket of rare earth elements.”
Mt Monger have heritage clearance and permitting for further drilling underway.
