Tony Simon puts it well: “Rare Earth Elements: Not Rare, But Important. No need for me to write about them. Joe Martin, of Cambridge House fame, has written a good summary here.” Read what Joe Martin has to say about rare earths (TCE!) and the upcoming VRIC2020. REEs are not rare, it is all about […]
Read this description of “rare earth motor” that doesn’t use battery. It’s a bold claim with limited details because it is patent pending. Has anyone replicated the results described here? Could we improve on them with new methods or materials? https://www.powerelectronics.com/technologies/alternative-energy/article/21864052/new-discovery-could-lead-to-commercial-production-of-permanent-magnet-motors “Attract-Repel Demo: We constructed an apparatus to demonstrate the simultaneous resultant attraction in the […]
Did you know, “Permanent Magnets have replaced other types of magnets in many applications in modern products that require strong permanent magnets, such as motors in cordless tools, hard disk drives and magnetic fasteners”. Neodymium magnet Neodymium magnet A neodymium magnet (also known as NdFeB, NIB or Neo magnet) is the most widely used type […]
How many drones are there in the USA? This webpage reports +2M for the first time ever in 2019, up from c. 750M in 2016. They estimate +$80B in revenue for “drones” by 2025. Read more in the report published March 12, 2019. This is one of several fast-growing markets that use permanent magnets. Read […]

Despite the challenges the rare earths market faced in 2019, those INN spoke to remain confident that the growing importance of the critical metals will translate to price growth and prosperity long term. “We think pricing for neodymium oxide will keep moving between US$40 and US$50 per kilogram, a healthy range,” said GeoMegA’s Mugerman. “Demand […]
” What’s the rare earths outlook for 2020? Here analysts and CEOs share their thoughts on what’s ahead for the rare earths market. “
” Department of Energy DoE 2011(!) forecast of dysprosium oxide demand was correct. We are on “Trajectory C” and demand is indeed beginning to exceed supply. In terms of heavy rare earths such as dysprosium largely overlooked is the steady rise of gadolinium. #RareEarths” @GITI_SG
#RareEarths: Will future supply be able to meet future demand? https://web.mit.edu/12.000/www/m2016/finalwebsite/problems/ree.html This 2016 article by MIT is highly relevant – mandatory reading. “Cost of Inaction” sums it all up. Even at Argus low CAGR forecast of <5% supply gets really rather tight. Ignore at your peril. @GITI_SG Cost of Inaction: If nothing is done to […]
«Voici un bref résumé… Ce que nous allons traiter, ce sont 1,5 tonne de déchets magnétiques par jour. Qu’est-ce que les déchets magnétiques? Ils sont produits par le broyage des aimants jusqu’à leur forme finale et, aussi, le matériau de fin de vie. Tout fonctionne à 30% d’éléments de terres rares… ces quatre éléments: NdPrDyTb. Je n’ai à gérer aucun des éléments bon marché, comme le lanthane et le cérium. »
“What you see on the left is one thing we produce: neodymium oxide. That’s the main oxide of rare earth elements that go into building magnets. The neodymium metal goes into magnets, and the magnets go into motors — that’s the main driver of this entire sector… The most important thing that I want you […]
The neodymium metal goes into magnet, and the magnet goes into motors — that’s the main driver of this entire sector. If we go about what GeoMegA is today, then we have a rare-earth processing technology developed by our private subsidiary INNORD and we also have Montviel, which is a 43-101 large resource of a carbonatite-bastnasite. It is the largest in Canada.

After this, we’d love to sell into the US but the US abandoned any kind of production of magnets in the ’90s. Now they’re slowly trying to attract it […]
“If I drive it up to full 24 hour operation, then that gives me 4.5 tons per day. Do the math, with that you can generate $30 million dollars of sales with $6-8 million of profits on a $2.6 million dollar investment. That’s starting to sound very interesting.” https://ressourcesgeomega.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/2019-12-31-KTR-DoTheMath.mp4 https://ressourcesgeomega.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/2019-12-31-KTR-DoTheMath.mp4 “What we are going to […]

“The (mining) project is not forgotten, it’s still within the company,” said Mugerman, “but today to bring it to value is very hard. It’s a very high risk for a company to begin committing hundreds of millions of dollars when you don’t control your destiny — if the price goes up, China can still bring it down.”
Geomega Resources is improving its proprietary ISR technology as it moves closer to being Canada’s first rare earth elements recycler and the only one outside China. The company operates a pilot plant and has made several optimizations recently.
GéoMégA president and CEO Kiril Mugerman discusses the prospect of producing rare earth elements (REEs) in Canada for the magnet industry via clean mining and processing practices. This presentation was part of the 2018 Progressive Mine Forum in Toronto, presented by The Northern Miner and Canadian Mining Journal.
Price volatility for rare earth minerals is expected due to shifting demand and supply Nils Backeberg, senior analyst at Roskill, educates Proactive Investors on today’s markets for rare earth minerals, with particular attention to factors influencing demand and thus prices. Roskill will be publishing a report on rare earths later this month.
