July 2012 Updates To The TMR Advanced Rare-Earth Projects Index

I recently updated the list of projects on the TMR Advanced Rare-Earth Projects Index [1], to reflect a new rare-earth mineral-resource estimate that was announced recently. I also made some other updates. The effective date of the updates is August 10, 2012. The specifics:

I have also updated the pricing used in the Index data, to reflect the average monthly prices for July 2012 and the moving three-year average price for separated rare-earth oxides.

In addition, to the new projects above, four companies with projects on the Index recently announced updates to their existing resource estimates:

There was a recent change in ownership of a project on the Index:

FYI, TMR is tracking a total of 441 rare-earth projects in progress associated with 269 different companies in 37 different countries.

You can access the updated details via the Index page [1].

Disclosure: at the time of writing, Gareth Hatch holds no shares or stock options in any of the companies mentioned in this article, or in any publicly traded rare-earth company, nor is he doing paid consulting for any such company.

Thank you. Valuable information. I want to help.

1- The rights to the licensing area «T», «M», «ZK» (Russia.Chukotka)
The area of . 1975 : 2076 sq km:
Au -833, Ag -322, Sn-217, Cu -185, Bi-153, Mo-122, Pb -111,
W -50, Co -38, Be -35, Zn -12, Y -10, Yb -3.
Very good 22 area. Near the mine Valunistoye(Au-36t, Ag-1500t).
Forecast: Identified ore junction: Au(5.3 – 60.8gr / t) Ag-(3564 – 19818gr / t) .Copy Kupol.
The area of 1982: 2279 sq km:
Au -1110, Sn> 250, Pb -208, Mo-115, W -55, Bi -25, Cu -20,
Zn -20, Be -10, Cr -15, Ag -6, Zr -5, Y -5.
7 prospective area. Identified ore junction: Sn -16%, (30 000 tons) . Near the mine Tumannoe (Au-100t), Iultin (Sn> 180000t., W ->80000t), Riveem (Au->300t). Forecast: In addition to the known deposits of Sn, Pb, Zn, Mo may 2 deposit Au – (260t), up to 10g/t
The area 1994: 700 sq.km.
Pd -200, Au -190, Ni -193, Cr -82, Hg -58, As -39, Bi -47, Sn -30, W -24, Ag -18, Co -8, Ge -6, Ti – 5, P -4.5, Cu -4, (Sc, Zn, Mo, Nb, Ba, Mn, V, Be, Y) – 1 to 3
Near the mine Hg (Astra) and Sn (Erutta).

2- The search continues. The sponsor will receive a share.
2012: 3,000 square miles of British Columbia (Canada): area, prospects:
Au (6354), Ag (24.8), Sb (15.6), Cu (10.6), As (9.3), Cd (7.2), Ba (5.9), Mo (5.40) ,Bi (5),
Tl (4.5), Hg (4), Se (4), Cs (3.7), Pb (2.9) and TR:

3- Consultation: Rapid and efficient methodology of geochemical prediction, prospecting, evaluation of deposits ore.
I speak Russian. Question: Is there interest?
Best wishes. Gennady . [2]. Vancouver
I don*t speak English, sorry. Do you speak Russian?

Gareth are we viewing the end of Molycorp? or is this now a ripe company for a leveraged buyout by interest like Blackstone?

Also is there any credibility to a China strategy to depoly the New Reactor Technology using thorium? Innovation within the Kondratiev Winter; Abundant Rare Earths Could Be Energy Future

@michael: I wouldn’t count Molycorp out anytime soon. The Mountain Pass mine is a solid project and the company has world-class assets after acquiring Neo Material Technologies.

I don’t actively follow the thorium “space” but I think there are some sound technical and logistical reasons for pursuing thorium reactors as a means of power production, for sure.
