Offtake agreement for tailings located within the operational Sierra Blanca Quarry
VANCOUVER, BC (GLOBE NEWSWIRE – April 20, 2022) —Tactical Resources Corp. (CSE: RARE) (“Tactical Resources” or the “Company”), a mineral exploration and development company focused on the rare earth elements (REE) that drive the green technologies of the future, is pleased to introduce the Southwestern Texas-based Peak Project.
The Peak project found within the Sierra Blanca Complex is located 68 miles southeast of El Paso, Texas and two miles southeast of the Round Top Rare Earth Element (REE) project owned by Texas Minerals Resources Corporation & USA Rare Earth.
The project is located within the Sierra Blanca Quarry which is currently operational in the production of ballast (fill) material for the Union Pacific railway. The Company has an offtake agreement which offers access to tailings material produced as part of the quarry operations. Initial test work has shown REE enrichment in the tailings with further metallurgy and minerology work ongoing. The company intends to advance an extensive sampling and testing program to further evaluate REE opportunity potential.
Company CEO, Ranjeet Sundher, advises, “Given the ongoing global uncertainty and news regarding the increasing demand for domestic production of critical minerals, we are confident that if the materials at our Peak asset prove out at commercial grades, the accessibility alone would provide a scenario offering a path to production.”
On Behalf of The Board of Directors,
Chief Executive Officer & Director
Tactical Resources Corp.
