PROCESSING CHALLENGES

  • REE mineralogy is unique, multi-varied, and highly intricate.
  • Exceedingly complex and sophisticated processing techniques are needed to extract, separate, and purify REEs.
  • Traditional unit operations include caustic cracking, acid baking, agitated leaching, solvent extraction, pyrometallurgy and intensive heat treatment.
  • Processing operations represent the most environmentally impactful, technically challenging, and highest risk components of most REE projects.

The development of novel and eco-driven REE processing techniques are critical catalysts needed to optimize project value for all stakeholders.

Historically the world’s largest REE supplier, China is now a becoming net importer, simultaneously reducing global supply and increasing global demand. This is in part due to production quotas and environmental controls put in place by the Chinese government.

Many countries around the world are now realizing the importance of sourcing non-China supplies of these crucial materials and many countries, the US in particular, are placing a huge focus on shoring up domestic (or at the very lest more local) supplies. This, of course, relies not only on the discovery of the REE’s themselves but also the reliable, punctual, and cost-effective means of their subsequent extraction and processing.
