As per The Business Research Company's "Rare Earth Metals Global Market Report 2022”, the rare earth metals market size is expected to grow from $5.72 billion in 2021 to $6.53 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.1%. The global rare earth metal market share is expected to grow to $9.65 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 10.3%. According to the rare earth metals market analysis, an increase in the demand for electronics is expected to serve as a major driver of the market in the forecast period.

 

Defense Metals Corp. (TSX-V:DEFN) (OTCQB:DFMTF) is a mineral exploration and development company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral deposits containing metals and elements commonly used in the electric power market, defense industry, national security sector and in the production of green energy technologies, such as, rare earths magnets used in wind turbines and in permanent magnet motors for electric vehicles.

 

Defense Metals recently announced that it has entered into a Mineral Exploration Agreement with the McLeod Lake Indian Band regarding its Wicheeda Rare Earth Element exploration project located 80 kilometres northeast of Prince George, Canada.

 

The Agreement addresses the immediate interests of the parties with respect to mineral exploration activities related to the project, and puts into place a framework for communication and cooperation going forward. In addition to providing McLeod Lake Indian Band with meaningful input into how these activities are to proceed, the Agreement provides current economic opportunities for the community and establishes a roadmap for potential future commercial involvement as the exploration activities advance.

 

“We are delighted to have the McLeod Lake Indian Band engaged with Defense Metals and the opportunities presented by the Wicheeda exploration project,” said Craig Taylor, CEO of Defense. “We look forward to building a long-term and mutually beneficial relationship with the McLeod Lake Indian Band through the implementation of this initial agreement.”

 

“McLeod Lake Indian Band has always been open to working with companies that respect our rights, laws and interests in the protection of our lands, and that provide meaningful economic and commercial opportunities for our community,” said Chief Harley Chingee. "We are therefore pleased to have completed this initial agreement with Defense Metals, and look forward to its successful implementation." 

 

The Wicheeda REE Project yielded a robust 2021 PEA that demonstrated an after-tax net present value (NPV@8%) of $517 million, and 18% IRR1. A unique advantage of the Wicheeda REE Project is the production of a saleable high-grade flotation-concentrate. The PEA contemplates a 1.8 Mtpa (million tonnes per year) mill throughput open pit mining operation with 1.75:1 (waste:mill feed) strip ratio over a 19 year mine (project) life producing and average of 25,423 tonnes REO annually. A Phase 1 initial pit strip ratio of 0.63:1 (waste:mill feed) would yield rapid access to higher grade surface mineralization in year 1 and payback of $440 million initial capital within 5 years.

 

Earlier in June, Texas Mineral Resources Corp. (OTCQB: TMRC) an exploration company currently targeting the heavy rare earths, technology metals and a variety of industrial minerals primarily through its 20% ownership interest in the Round Top Mountain project in Texas, reported that its joint venture partner USA Rare Earth Inc. announced its procurement and development of the first fully integrated US-based rare earth metal and sintered neo-magnet manufacturing facility, located in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

 

USA Rare Earth plans to invest more than $100 million in developing the manufacturing facility and will utilize its owned facilities and technology to convert rare earth oxides into metals, magnets and other specialty materials. These products have numerous applications, including electric vehicles, wind turbines, mobile electronic devices and military hardware. Initial production at the facility in Stillwater is expected to commence in 2023, with the project aiming to create more than 100 new jobs and generate over $6.6 million in wages once fully operational.

 

In 2020, USA Rare Earth acquired the only sintered neo-magnet manufacturing equipment in the western hemisphere. The company plans to have the necessary operating permits for all metal, flake, and magnet operations in 2022 with initial production to commence in 2023.

 

Texas Mineral Resources Corp.'s primary focus is to develop and commercialize, along with its joint venture operating partner USA Rare Earth LLC, the Round Top heavy-rare earth, technology metals, and industrial minerals project located in Hudspeth County, Texas, 85 miles southeast of El Paso, in which TMRC owns a 20% interest and USA Rare Earth owns an 80% interest. Additionally, the Company plans on developing other domestic mining projects in more traditional metals. 

 

Lynas Rare Earths (OTC:LYSCF) (ASX:LYC) was established as an ethical and environmentally responsible producer of rare earth materials and is the world’s only significant producer of separated rare earth materials outside of China.

 

The Lynas Mt. Weld mine in Western Australia is acknowledged as one of the world’s premier rare earths deposits.

 

The Company just announced the signing of agreements with Japan Australia Rare Earths B.V.) which reconfirm our shared commitment to work together on future development opportunities.

 

JARE is a special purpose company established by Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National

Corporation and Sojitz Corporation. Lynas and JARE are parties to a long term senior

loan facility, with a principal balance of US$141 million, an interest rate of 2.5% p.a. and

a maturity date of 30 June 2030.

 

Under the agreements, JARE will provide a contribution of US$9 million to the exploration program at Mt Weld on the exploration target in the fresh carbonatite below the current Mt Weld life of mine design and ore reserve (announced on 1 March 2022). JARE’s contribution will be made through a US$9 million subscription for ordinary shares in Lynas at a subscription price which will be the higher of the 5-day volume-weighted average price (VWAP) in the period immediately following this announcement and the last traded price immediately prior to this announcement.

Lynas’ rare earth materials are used in many high tech and future facing applications, including electronics, wind turbines and hybrid & electric vehicles.

 

NioCorp Developments Ltd. (TSX: NB) ( OTCQX: NIOBF), another player in the sector announced this week  that its demonstration-scale processing plant in Quebec, Canada is now processing ore samples from the Company's Elk Creek Critical Minerals Project.  The demonstration plant project is intended to demonstrate that the Company can extract and separate rare earth elements from ore that NioCorp expects to mine from the Project site, subject to receipt of necessary project financing, and that its simplified process for potentially producing niobium, scandium, and titanium is technically and economically feasible.

 

NioCorp is developing a critical minerals project in Southeast Nebraska that will produce niobium, scandium, and titanium.  The Company also is evaluating the potential to produce several rare earths from the Project.

 

Discussing their applications the company says, “Niobium is used to produce specialty alloys as well as High Strength, Low Alloy ("HSLA") steel, which is a lighter, stronger steel used in automotive, structural, and pipeline applications. Scandium is a specialty metal that can be combined with Aluminum to make alloys with increased strength and improved corrosion resistance. Scandium is also a critical component of advanced solid oxide fuel cells. Titanium is used in various lightweight alloys and is a key component of pigments used in paper, paint and plastics and is also used for aerospace applications, armor, and medical implants.  Magnetic rare earths, such as neodymium, praseodymium, terbium, and dysprosium are critical to the making of Neodymium-Iron-Boron ("NdFeB") magnets, which are used across a wide variety of defense and civilian applications.”

 

American Resources Corporation (NASDAQ:AREC), a next generation and socially responsible supplier of rare earth and critical elements, carbon and advanced carbon materials to the new infrastructure and electrification marketplace, reported at the end of August that it has sold its exclusive patent rights in carbon nanostructure and graphene technology to Novusterra Inc. for $16 million paid in all Class A common Novusterra shares.

 

From the news: Mark Jensen, Chief Executive Officer of American Resources Corporation commented, "We believe this transaction with Novusterra will enable us to unlock the value of these technologies for American Resources' shareholders as well as establish a platform and team for growing the business opportunity and maximizing the value of the technologies themselves. Graphene is one of the most exciting technologies in the market today given its wide array of applications in high-value products such as batteries and sustainable infrastructure materials.”

 

With a combination of media hype and consumer and investor demand for a more green-friendly technologically dependent economic environment, the rare earth elements sector is poised for exponential growth.

 

As we see more rare earth mining development announcements, and as these companies begin to reach profitability, we are also seeing investor sentiment gain long-term resilience as this market transitions from a hypothetical state into reality in our modern lives. If we want technology to advance hand-in-hand with a green future, the rare earth elements sector will play an integral role.

The Electric Future of #Lithium as it Aims to Meet the Global #EV Demand


 

Vancouver, Kelowna, Delta, BC  – September 2, 2022 - Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering lithium mining and EV stocks releases a special report on the continued demand for lithium, featuring Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE:GEMS) (OTC:TLOOF). Infinity Stone's mission is to be a diversified, single source supplier for the critical energy metals being used in the clean energy revolution.

 

Read this in full at https://www.investorideas.com/news/2022/mining/09021Lithium-Stocks.asp

 

As more countries push forward with their green energy initiatives, the EV sector is driving growth for new lithium mining developments.

 

In recent news, “The global lithium-ion battery market is expected to grow by a factor of five to 10 in the next decade. Reaching aggressive targets for electric vehicles (EVs) and battery-based energy storage system production relies on materials such as lithium and rare earth metals. However, material shortages could stall the manufacturing of some clean energy technologies, which is concerning from a climate perspective.”

 

Lithium is a critical material in manufacturing the batteries used in EVs and energy storage systems. However, from September 2021 to March 2022, the price of the element increased by more than 400 percent, though it has recently leveled off. Nevertheless, skyrocketing material costs will result in higher prices for consumers.

 

Joe Lowry of Global Lithium doesn’t expect future lithium supplies to keep up with demand. “In the next two years, even though there will be significant growth in supply, it will be less than demand, so the gap will just continue to grow,” he explained in a recent interview with Bloomberg.

 

So how are companies looking to address this supply shortage right now?

 

Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE:GEMS) (OTC:TLOOFrecently announced that it  has entered into an option agreement to acquire, from an arm’s length party, a 100% interest in and to the Taiga Lithium Project adjacent to Patriot Battery Metals (TSXV:PMET) Corvette Lithium discovery in the James Bay Region of Quebec.  Patriot Battery Metals has made several recent announcements with regard to their project,  including their announcement on August 10, 2022 identifying "a total of thirty-one (31) spodumene-bearing pegmatite outcrops identified, including twenty (20) outcrops with estimated  >5% modal spodumene content”.

 

The 923-hectare Taiga Lithium Project is located 3.4 kilometres west of Infinity Stone’s Camaro Property, directly adjacent to Patriot Battery Metals Inc.’s Corvette Property, in the James Bay Region of Quebec, approximately 235 kilometres east of Radisson, Quebec and 245 kilometres northeast of the Cree village municipality of Nemaska. The northern edge of the Project is located approximately 15 kilometres south of the Trans-Taiga road and transmission line. The region has been historically explored for its rich gold, copper, silver, base metal and PGE deposits. 

 

“Infinity Stone is excited to further increase our position in the rapidly expanding James Bay Lithium District. Our team is hopeful that the identified LCT pegmatite trend in the corridor presents a number of occurrences trending northeast to southwest,” said Michael Townsend, Executive Chairman of Infinity Stone. “The Taiga Lithium Project is strategically positioned with  existing mapped pegmatites that present significant discovery potential given recent developments from other operators in the region,” further stated Mr. Townsend. “It is evident from regional mapping that there is a high potential there are additional pegmatites present on the Project,” concluded Mr. Townsend.

 

The addition of the Taiga Lithium Project to Infinity Stone’s existing land position in the area, being the Camaro Project, brings the Company’s total land position in the area to 1,282 hectares.

 

Patriot has been conducting grassroots exploration on the gold, copper, silver, molybdenum and PGE showings across its FCI and Corvette properties for several years. In 2017, Patriot discovered the CV Lithium Trend.

 



 

During the 1950s, lithium gained importance as a component of nuclear bombs and pharmaceuticals, and the area around Kings Mountain, near Charlotte, saw a major boom in mining. For about 30 years, the region supplied almost all the lithium in the world. Then in the 1980s, production moved to lower-cost operations overseas. Today, less than 1 percent of global lithium is mined in the United States, all from one mine in Nevada; the vast majority comes from Chile, Australia, and China.

 

Last summer, President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling for electric vehicles, which depend on lithium-based batteries, to make up 50 percent of all new vehicle sales by 2030. The Inflation Reduction Act, recently signed into law, aims to incentivize a domestic battery supply chain, providing tax breaks for mines and credits for electric cars and grid storage applications when a percentage of the battery is produced or recycled in the US.

 

Last year, Arbor Metals Corp. (TSXV:ABRannounced that, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Arbor Metals USA Corp., that it had secured 100% ownership of the Miller’s Crossing Lithium Project, Big Smoky Valley Nevada USA. The Miller’s Crossing project consists of 192 claims covering 3,800 acres in the Big Smoky Valley. The Project fits well into the playa-type brine deposit model as it is located adjacent to, and shares geological similarities with Clayton Valley, home to the only lithium producing brine operation in North America.

 

Not only have we witnessed an uptake in interest in lithium mining in the US but also in countries like Australia where, in recent news, Core Lithium Ltd (OTC:CXOXF) has come to a mutual agreement with electric car giant Telsa Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA)  to extend the termination date for its binding offtake term sheet to October 26, 2022.

 

The agreement gives Tesla and Core the opportunity to finalise negotiations for the definitive full form binding offtake agreement, which would see Core supply Tesla with up to 110,000 dry metric tonnes of lithium spodumene concentrate produced at Core's Finnis Lithium Project near Darwin. This offtake is expected to start in 2023.

 

In the last four weeks, Core has presented plenty of news for investors to think about, including the start of a reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign of more than 40,000 metres of greenfields and brownfields target areas at Finnis and the appointment of resources sector veteran Gareth Manderson as CEO of the Company.

 

Core is building Finnis, described as Australia's newest and most advanced lithium project on the ASX, in the Northern Territory. Finnis has been awarded Major Project Status by the Australian Federal Government and is one of the most capital-efficient lithium projects with arguably the best logistics chain to markets of any Australian lithium project. The Finnis Project is expected to provide the globe with high-grade and high-quality lithium suitable for lithium batteries used to power electric vehicles and renewable energy storage.

 

We are also seeing similar developments in Canada with Rock Tech Lithium Inc (TSXV: RCK) (OTCQX: RCKTF) and Mercedes-Benz AG (OTC:MGBAFhaving recently announced that they are about to enter into an agreement which provides for a strategic partnership to produce high-quality lithium hydroxide for the automaker and its battery suppliers. Under the intended binding agreement, Rock Tech has agreed to deliver up to 10,000 tonnes per year of its planned production to the premium manufacturer and its partners starting in 2026.

 

Mercedes-Benz wants to become fully electric by the end of the decade. From 2025 onwards the luxury carmaker plans that all newly launched vehicle architectures will be all electric. To help make this a reality, Mercedes-Benz intends to enter a strategic partnership with Rock Tech, lasting for at least five years and an option to prolong.

 

From 2026 onwards, it is envisaged that Rock Tech contributes up to 10,000 tonnes of lithium hydroxide annually to Mercedes-Benz and its battery partners, starting with a qualification period and after quality and sustainability benchmarks have been met. This battery-grade lithium product is an essential component of high-performance vehicle batteries. The Canadian-German Rock Tech expects to become a central implementation partner for the automaker and its all electric and carbon neutral strategies.

 

"Mercedes-Benz plans to go all electric by the end of this decade, wherever market conditions allow. To scale up our electric vehicle production, access to raw materials is needed to improve the resilience and sustainability of the electric vehicle supply chain. With the Rock Tech partnership we intend to take a direct sourcing approach to secure the lithium supply for Mercedes-Benz battery production," says Markus Schaefer, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Chief Technology Officer, responsible for Research & Development and Procurement.

 

As lithium mining and production spreads out globally in this “new era gold rush” we can expect in the near term to see a slight price drop and an increase in supply, however many EV producers are still far from scale production, which will be when the real test begins for many of these operations. We are witnessing a race between EV producers and the mining facilities they depend on for who can reach their target scale production first and while at the moment we are seeing growth and renewed investor interest in both sectors, we still face the question of will it be enough for this Green Revolution ?

Vancouver, Kelowna, Delta, BC  – September 2, 2022 - Investorideas.com, a leading investor news resource covering lithium mining and EV stocks releases a special report on the continued demand for lithium, featuring Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE:GEMS) (OTC:TLOOF). Infinity Stone's mission is to be a diversified, single source supplier for the critical energy metals being used in the clean energy revolution.

As more countries push forward with their green energy initiatives, the EV sector is driving growth for new lithium mining developments.

 

In recent news, “The global lithium-ion battery market is expected to grow by a factor of five to 10 in the next decade. Reaching aggressive targets for electric vehicles (EVs) and battery-based energy storage system production relies on materials such as lithium and rare earth metals. However, material shortages could stall the manufacturing of some clean energy technologies, which is concerning from a climate perspective.”

 

Lithium is a critical material in manufacturing the batteries used in EVs and energy storage systems. However, from September 2021 to March 2022, the price of the element increased by more than 400 percent, though it has recently leveled off. Nevertheless, skyrocketing material costs will result in higher prices for consumers.

 

Joe Lowry of Global Lithium doesn’t expect future lithium supplies to keep up with demand. “In the next two years, even though there will be significant growth in supply, it will be less than demand, so the gap will just continue to grow,” he explained in a recent interview with Bloomberg.

 

So how are companies looking to address this supply shortage right now?

 

Infinity Stone Ventures Corp. (CSE:GEMS) (OTC:TLOOFrecently announced that it  has entered into an option agreement to acquire, from an arm’s length party, a 100% interest in and to the Taiga Lithium Project adjacent to Patriot Battery Metals (TSXV:PMET) Corvette Lithium discovery in the James Bay Region of Quebec.  Patriot Battery Metals has made several recent announcements with regard to their project,  including their announcement on August 10, 2022 identifying "a total of thirty-one (31) spodumene-bearing pegmatite outcrops identified, including twenty (20) outcrops with estimated  >5% modal spodumene content”.

 

The 923-hectare Taiga Lithium Project is located 3.4 kilometres west of Infinity Stone’s Camaro Property, directly adjacent to Patriot Battery Metals Inc.’s Corvette Property, in the James Bay Region of Quebec, approximately 235 kilometres east of Radisson, Quebec and 245 kilometres northeast of the Cree village municipality of Nemaska. The northern edge of the Project is located approximately 15 kilometres south of the Trans-Taiga road and transmission line. The region has been historically explored for its rich gold, copper, silver, base metal and PGE deposits. 

 

“Infinity Stone is excited to further increase our position in the rapidly expanding James Bay Lithium District. Our team is hopeful that the identified LCT pegmatite trend in the corridor presents a number of occurrences trending northeast to southwest,” said Michael Townsend, Executive Chairman of Infinity Stone. “The Taiga Lithium Project is strategically positioned with  existing mapped pegmatites that present significant discovery potential given recent developments from other operators in the region,” further stated Mr. Townsend. “It is evident from regional mapping that there is a high potential there are additional pegmatites present on the Project,” concluded Mr. Townsend.

 

The addition of the Taiga Lithium Project to Infinity Stone’s existing land position in the area, being the Camaro Project, brings the Company’s total land position in the area to 1,282 hectares.

 

Patriot has been conducting grassroots exploration on the gold, copper, silver, molybdenum and PGE showings across its FCI and Corvette properties for several years. In 2017, Patriot discovered the CV Lithium Trend.

 



 

During the 1950s, lithium gained importance as a component of nuclear bombs and pharmaceuticals, and the area around Kings Mountain, near Charlotte, saw a major boom in mining. For about 30 years, the region supplied almost all the lithium in the world. Then in the 1980s, production moved to lower-cost operations overseas. Today, less than 1 percent of global lithium is mined in the United States, all from one mine in Nevada; the vast majority comes from Chile, Australia, and China.

 

Last summer, President Joe Biden signed an executive order calling for electric vehicles, which depend on lithium-based batteries, to make up 50 percent of all new vehicle sales by 2030. The Inflation Reduction Act, recently signed into law, aims to incentivize a domestic battery supply chain, providing tax breaks for mines and credits for electric cars and grid storage applications when a percentage of the battery is produced or recycled in the US.

 

Last year, Arbor Metals Corp. (TSXV:ABRannounced that, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Arbor Metals USA Corp., that it had secured 100% ownership of the Miller’s Crossing Lithium Project, Big Smoky Valley Nevada USA. The Miller’s Crossing project consists of 192 claims covering 3,800 acres in the Big Smoky Valley. The Project fits well into the playa-type brine deposit model as it is located adjacent to, and shares geological similarities with Clayton Valley, home to the only lithium producing brine operation in North America.

 

Not only have we witnessed an uptake in interest in lithium mining in the US but also in countries like Australia where, in recent news, Core Lithium Ltd (OTC:CXOXF) has come to a mutual agreement with electric car giant Telsa Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA)  to extend the termination date for its binding offtake term sheet to October 26, 2022.

 

The agreement gives Tesla and Core the opportunity to finalise negotiations for the definitive full form binding offtake agreement, which would see Core supply Tesla with up to 110,000 dry metric tonnes of lithium spodumene concentrate produced at Core's Finnis Lithium Project near Darwin. This offtake is expected to start in 2023.

 

In the last four weeks, Core has presented plenty of news for investors to think about, including the start of a reverse circulation (RC) drilling campaign of more than 40,000 metres of greenfields and brownfields target areas at Finnis and the appointment of resources sector veteran Gareth Manderson as CEO of the Company.

 

Core is building Finnis, described as Australia's newest and most advanced lithium project on the ASX, in the Northern Territory. Finnis has been awarded Major Project Status by the Australian Federal Government and is one of the most capital-efficient lithium projects with arguably the best logistics chain to markets of any Australian lithium project. The Finnis Project is expected to provide the globe with high-grade and high-quality lithium suitable for lithium batteries used to power electric vehicles and renewable energy storage.

 

We are also seeing similar developments in Canada with Rock Tech Lithium Inc (TSXV: RCK) (OTCQX: RCKTF) and Mercedes-Benz AG (OTC:MGBAFhaving recently announced that they are about to enter into an agreement which provides for a strategic partnership to produce high-quality lithium hydroxide for the automaker and its battery suppliers. Under the intended binding agreement, Rock Tech has agreed to deliver up to 10,000 tonnes per year of its planned production to the premium manufacturer and its partners starting in 2026.

 

Mercedes-Benz wants to become fully electric by the end of the decade. From 2025 onwards the luxury carmaker plans that all newly launched vehicle architectures will be all electric. To help make this a reality, Mercedes-Benz intends to enter a strategic partnership with Rock Tech, lasting for at least five years and an option to prolong.

 

From 2026 onwards, it is envisaged that Rock Tech contributes up to 10,000 tonnes of lithium hydroxide annually to Mercedes-Benz and its battery partners, starting with a qualification period and after quality and sustainability benchmarks have been met. This battery-grade lithium product is an essential component of high-performance vehicle batteries. The Canadian-German Rock Tech expects to become a central implementation partner for the automaker and its all electric and carbon neutral strategies.

 

"Mercedes-Benz plans to go all electric by the end of this decade, wherever market conditions allow. To scale up our electric vehicle production, access to raw materials is needed to improve the resilience and sustainability of the electric vehicle supply chain. With the Rock Tech partnership we intend to take a direct sourcing approach to secure the lithium supply for Mercedes-Benz battery production," says Markus Schaefer, Member of the Board of Management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, Chief Technology Officer, responsible for Research & Development and Procurement.

 

As lithium mining and production spreads out globally in this “new era gold rush” we can expect in the near term to see a slight price drop and an increase in supply, however many EV producers are still far from scale production, which will be when the real test begins for many of these operations. We are witnessing a race between EV producers and the mining facilities they depend on for who can reach their target scale production first and while at the moment we are seeing growth and renewed investor interest in both sectors, we still face the question of will it be enough for this Green Revolution ?
