The Mushgia khudag deposit includes group of licenses MV-014937 Bayan Tomortei XV-012396 Mushgia Khudag XV-07812 Mushgia Ukhaa XV-015277 Khurmen tolgoi.
The deposit is located 500km SW from capital city Ulaanbaatar and 32km SW from Mandal Ovoo sum.
In 1983-1984, Russian geological expedition provided first drilling program (with 2800m drilling on 20 bore holes) and estimated over million tonnes of REO in total resources.
In 1989-1991, Mongolian geological research team completed exploration work on Central, Khuren Khad and Tumurtei ore zones at Mushgia Khudag (total 8025m drilling on 41 bore holes) and estimated 0.4 million tonnes of REO oxide in total.
USGS evaluated its resource as 5,9 Mt REO.
Unexplored Fe over 2.2kmx300m area As results of 2007-2009 exploration works we have determined origin of the deposit, complexity of the geological setting, exploration drilling grid density and estimated rare earth 14.4
million tonnes of ore or 194.4 thousand tonnes of rare earth oxides by B category, and probable resources of 1.2 million tonnes of ore or 37.3 thousand tonnes of oxides by C category in compliance mineral evaluation and estimation methods of Mongolia.
