Rare-Earths

Rare Earths

Rare Earths Periodic Table

Over the past quarter century, an emerging class of metals has grown exponentially in demand as a byproduct of the Technological Revolution. That group, known as the Rare Earths Elements (and variously referred to as Specialty or Technology Metals), has become the backbone of innovation in the fields of clean energy, consumer electronics, computer applications, health care technologies and much more. Today, a great deal of what we refer to as the modern technology would be all but impossible without the Rare Earths Elements and their associated oxides and concentrates.

Rare Earths Technology

Rare Earths

 

Rare Earths include the unique elemental suite known as the Rare Earths Elements (REE’s) and a select group of specialty metals produced primarily for technology applications. At Ucore, our focus is on Heavy REE’s (a class of REE’s known for their high value relative to other REE’s) and collateral metals often found in concert with REE deposits. Collectively, this group represents a resource sub-sector experiencing unprecedented growth in global demand, combined with critical issues of near term supply and a correspondingly high potential for return on investment.

The Ucore Advantage

Rare Earths Technology

Ucore Rare Metals Inc. is a well-funded development-phase mining company focused on establishing rare metal resources with near term production potential. With multiple projects across North America, Ucore’s primary focus is the 100% owned Bokan – Dotson Ridge REE property in Alaska. The Bokan – Dotson ridge REE project is located 60 km southwest of Ketchikan, Alaska and 140 km northwest of Prince Rupert, British Columbia and has direct ocean access to the western seaboard and the Pacific Rim, a significant advantage in developing near term production facilities and limiting the capital costs associated with mine construction.
The Bokan property is particularly enriched with heavy rare earth elements, including the critical elements Dysprosium, Terbium and Yttrium. Approximately 40% (by weight) of the rare earth elements contained on the Dotson Ridge property are heavy rare earths elements, as disclosed in the Company’s NI43-101 compliant resource estimate, released in March of 2011.

The Ucore Advantage is Clear:

Highest Grade Heavy Rare Earth Deposit in U.S. (NI-43-101 Compliant)
Short Prospective Timeline to Production : Estimated at 3 Years
Excellent Logistics: Only REE Deposit Worldwide on Immediate Deep Water Access; Accessible Labour and Prospective Power
Anomalous Skew Towards Dy, Tb, Y; Among the most Critical High Demand HREE’s
Located in Alaska; Among the World’s Leading Mine Friendly Jurisdictions
Advanced Metallurgy and Separation Regimes Already Established
Excellent Geopolitical Support (Local; State; Federal)
