and development of strategic mineral resources


Broken Hill Prospecting Limited (BPL) is an Australian exploration company targeting the discovery and development of strategic technology mineral resources in the USA and Australia. The Company announced in August 2019 its entry into the lucrative US rare earth market, through the acquisition of the La Paz Rare Earth Project in Arizona which contains an existing NI 43-101 Resource.  This Acquisition secures BPL as the only listed ASX company with exposure to the US rare earths market.

In Australia, BPL is focussed on two areas; the Murray Basin Region (Heavy Mineral Sands) and the Broken Hill Region (industrial, base and precious metals) including the Thackaringa Cobalt & Base/Precious Metal Project.


BPL is pleased to announce that it has formed a 100%-owned US-based subsidiary called La Paz Rare Earth LLC to acquire and develop the La Paz Rare Earth Project. The La Paz Rare Earth project is located in La Paz County, Arizona, US. The project lies approximately 170 km north- west of Phoenix
