The Sandy Creek Li/REE project consists of one tenement application, E09/2630 (Figure 1 and 2), within the Gascoyne lithium region, located 10km southeast of the Yinnetharra project.
The project area is underlain by Davey Well Granite of the Durlacher Supersuite. Multiple potentially REE bearing pegmatites of the Thirty Three Supersuite have been mapped in the western half of the area.

Exploration history and potential
The pegmatites occurring in the tenement area appear to be similar to those at Yinnetharra, and near Wabli Creek approximately 20 kilometres to the southeast that hosts REE, uranium, niobium and tantalum mineralisation The area is considered to have significant potential for REE and other pegmatite minerals.
