Tom Drivas Explores the Initial Rare Earth Mineral Resource Estimate from Appia’s PCH Ionic Adsorption Clay Project in Brazil


In this interview with Tracy Weslosky during PDAC 2024, Tom Drivas, CEO and Director of Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API | OTCQX: APAAF) discussed the results from the maiden Mineral Resource Estimate for Appia’s PCH Ionic Adsorption Clay Project in Brazil. Announcing a significant 52.8 million tonnes of resource, Tom highlighted the presence of extremely high-grades of rare earths within this resource, showcasing some of the highest TREO (total rare earth oxide) grades globally.

Tom emphasized the project’s potential, stating, “We have only explored 1% of the total area… We have 40,000 hectares.” Tom also highlighted the project’s richness in magnet rare earths like neodymium and praseodymium, essential for producing permanent magnets in high demand. The addition of industry experts like Constantine Karayannopoulos, Jack Lifton and Don Hains, P. Geo to Appia’s Advisory Board underscores the project’s significance and potential.

Besides the project in Brazil, Appia is also advancing uranium exploration properties around the Athabasca Basin in Saskatchewan and has a significant uranium resource in Ontario at Elliot Lake. Notably, the company is also advancing its Alces Lake project in Saskatchewan, renowned for its high-grade critical rare earths in monazite.

    Concerning RE we had an interesting that today we have the POSCO/Star Group magnet announcement.

    The question is, will RE magnet makers simply go for the processed material for their own manufacture and leave the feedstock acquisition to the RE processors?

    If so, how many of the actual and potential ROW processors out there already have their own feedstock resources producing and/or being developed, as opposed to needing to go out to search for such material? Yes, the SRC and Ucore may need but NEO, MP, Lynas, REEMF, Arafura, Iluka and ASM, etc..?

    100 plus ROW RE feedstock projects out there. How many such projects will be needed and where will they be situated this decade. What about the 2030s hmmm, alt’ extraction, substitution, novel changes, and recycling are coming. No wonder private money is hesitant in the present RE sector not to mention the political games going on
