Appia Receives Approval for 12 Additional Claim Blocks at Its PCH Rare Earths Ionic Adsorption Clay Project, Goias, Brazil

Total Exploration Area More Than Doubled Adding 23,412.11 Hectares, Presenting Exceptional New Potential for Additional Critical Mineral Targets

Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API) (OTCQX: APAAF) (FSE: A0I0) (MUN: A0I0) (BER: A0I0) (the ‘Company’ or ‘Appia’) is pleased to announce the extension of its existing mining claims at the PCH project in Goias, Brazil from 17,551.07 hectares to an expansive 40,963.18 hectares across a total of 22 claim blocks. This substantial 133% increase in the current land package includes 12 new claims independently staked by the Company, but included as part of the project acquisition (details available HERE), incurring minimal costs. This strategic expansion provides Appia with an exceptional opportunity to explore this promising geological corridor to the north of its current claim zones, unveiling new avenues for potential critical mineral resource discoveries.

‘The expansion of our exploration rights to 40,963.18 hectares marks a pivotal moment for Appia in Brazil as we build on the momentum achieved through our initial drilling program at the Target IV and Buriti zones,’ commented Stephen Burega, President, ‘Our dedicated Brazilian team is eager to explore the untapped potential of the northern corridor, where similar geological and geophysical features have been identified.’

Burega adds, ‘There is huge potential in these new claim blocks as we can draw clear parallels to the favourable geology that hosts the critical rare earth minerals that initially convinced us to enter into our agreement on the PCH project. Doubling the size of our overall land package within the prolific alkali province not only reflects our commitment but also strengthens the Company’s strategic plans. We aim to develop a series of potential target zones, extending the project focus for the benefit of our valued shareholders. This expansion underscores our dedication to unlocking the full spectrum of opportunities in Brazil’s mineral-rich landscape.’

MAP #1 – Target IV covers 193.28 hectares and Buriti covers 210.39 hectares of claim 860058/2018, which spans a total area of 1,874.6 hectares.
