Mission

Critical Minerals for Renewable Energy, Green Tech, Electric Vehicles, National Security, and a Carbon-Reduced Future While On-Shoring Jobs in an NMTC + Opportunity Zone

Vision

A safer, more sustainable planet as we provide cost-effective and environmentally responsible materials to the green tech supply chain for a carbon-reduced future. Leading the rare earths industry through efficient and sustainable processing solutions to help stabilize US national security supply chains.

Strategy

Stage I (Complete)
  • Created a portfolio of exploration projects in North America
  • Built a diverse, experienced leadership team to manage our assets
  • Undertaken field work to expand surface samples data and target new drilling locations
  • Expanded claim control adding Bureau of Land Management tenements
  • Completed Technical Reports at flagship project in 2020 (NI 43-101 & JORC 2012)
  • Metallurgical test work undertaken toward the goal of establishing Rare Earth Elements (REE) composition and defining the highest efficiency processing flowsheet
  • Defined, began permitting and contracted for a core drill campaign with the goal of potentially expanding the La Paz resource to double the depth plus establish a maiden Scandium resource
  • Established project awareness with key stakeholders and Government agencies
  • Secured strategic partnerships with leading National Research Institutions focused on REE processing
Stage II (By H2 2021+)
  • Secure additional capital
  • Advance the R&D of metallurgy (processing) to confirm cost-effective, scalable options
  • Determine potential for maiden resource for Scandium at LPRE
  • Continued development of project size, grade & processing efficiency
  • Deliver a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) for LPRE with a defined economic path to production in late 2021
  • Build organizational capability with CFO and more technical expertise; mine planning;
  • Begin permitting; optimize to Opportunity Zone + NMTC investors
  • Complete acquisitions of Wyoming and Nevada projects
  • Maiden Resource at Wyoming (Laramie REE project)
  • Maiden Resource at Nevada (THOR REE project)
Stage III (2022+)
  • Complete project Feasibility Studies for LPRE and establishment of production and processing pilot program.
