About Us

Technology Metals Research was founded to help individuals and organizations to become better informed about the sometimes bewildering world of important but rare commodities such as the rare earths, lithium, tellurium, gallium and other technology metals.

The company was formed in 2010 by Jack Lifton and Gareth Hatch, bringing together the rather unique perspectives of two seasoned experts on the exploration, mining, processing and end uses of technology metals. By using our high quality, well-informed commentary and analysis, we believe that companies, agencies and individuals like you can take greater advantage of the investment and other strategic opportunities associated with the technology metals.

We stress an honest, unbiased approach in our work. Our informal motto is “follow the evidence”; we hold our opinions firm as long as we believe them to be rooted in readily available and credible evidence. We’re not afraid, however, to change our positions on a previous conclusion, if new evidence of an appropriate kind is presented to us.

We look forward to being of service and assistance to you!
