MONTREAL, Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Solo International, Inc. (OTC: SLIO) ("Solo International, Inc." or "the Company"), an exploration and development mining company with a focus on deposits of rare earth metals and rare earth elements has approved a six month exploration program (the "Exploration Program"), which will be carried out in 2012-2013, for the purpose of better delineating the existence and extent of apatite and other Rare Earth bearing mineral deposits known to exist on the Company's property and claims located near Notre-Dame-De-La-Salette, Quebec.
The Exploration Program will consist of ground prospecting, line-cutting, soil sampling, core re-logging and geological compilation, and will begin in the fall of 2012. The goals of this Exploration Program are two -fold:
- Complete more detailed sampling of several apatite prospect areas to better define such areas prior to a drilling program;
- Channel sampling over these prospective zones to verify the extensions and grade of the most promising zones, while mapping some of the geological structures that are present on the property and also take further rock chip samples, which we will submit for assay;
The exploration program will be performed by a senior geologist and up to 40 samples will need to be taken stored and tested. There will also be a senior technician on site overseeing the process. Once all the information is gathered and reviewed an independent report will be provided and will recommend the next stage in the exploration.
Michel Plante President of Solo International commented "Now that the first stage of exploration has been outlined we expect it to begin within the next few weeks"
Rare earth metals are strategically important and necessary for the manufacture of, for example, electronics components, motors, glass and automobiles, and as alloying materials in steelmaking.
