In a recent InvestorIntel interview, Jack Lifton spoke with Dr. David Dreisinger, Director and Vice President Metallurgy at Search Minerals Inc. (TSXV: SMY) about Search’s results around magnetic separation testing for producing rare earth concentrates from in the Port Hope Simpson Critical Materials District in SE Labrador.
In this InvestorIntel interview, which may also be viewed on YouTube (click here to subscribe to the InvestorIntel Channel), Dr. Dreisinger went on to say that Search Minerals’ Silver Fox rare earths deposit hosts a very high occurrence of zirconium and hafnium. With a plan to extract these critical materials as co-products with the rare earths, Dr. Dreisinger describes this as a “big breakthrough” for reducing overall cost in the extraction processes. He also discusses how the world is moving towards a non-Chinese supply chain of many critical materials and that “the time is now for rare earths”.
