The German version, titled "Schlag auf Schlag in eine neue Dimension: Eldor wird zum Eldorado der Super-Rohstoffe", can be read on the following website, among others:
Commerce Resources Corp. (TSX.V: CCE) reported an intriguing new discovery on its Eldor Rare Earth Property in Quebec yesterday, announcing high tantalum-niobium grade boulders which rank impressively against other top deposits worldwide.
As much attention has been focused exclusively on advancing Eldor's primary asset, the Ashram Rare Earth Deposit, yesterday's results are an unexpected surprise. While developing the Ashram Deposit, recent work has focused on infill and step-out drilling as well as metallurgical investigations. We published articles in December and January explaining the significance of Commerce's metallurgical breakthrough with the Ashram Deposit. Our assessment was echoed by Luisa Moreno, Mining and Metals Analyst with Euro Pacific Capital, who said in a recent interview: "I think (Commerce's recent Ashram deposit) results are very positive."
Commerce's latest news is in regards to regional exploration activities at the Eldor Property. The results represent boulder sampling of a larger mineralized body present on the property and highlight the potential for the property to host at least four highly sought-after commodities: tantalum, niobium, rare earth elements and phosphate.
Numerous, extremely high-grade mineralized boulders were collected with samples assaying up to 1,220 ppm Ta2O5, 15,700 ppm Nb2O5, 11% P2O5, and 0.5% TREO (enriched in the HREOs). The tantalum grades alone are among the highest in the world, whereas mining operations consider grades in excess of 300 ppm Ta2O5 as high-grade. The niobium grades compare very well to producing mines and are above average to most known niobium deposits...
