Sonora Lithium Project

"Sonora Lithium project is also located in Sonora State, Northern Mexico, situated 180 km northeast of Hermosillo. The project area consists of five concession blocks; Buena Vista, San Gabriel, Ventana, Fleur and El Sauz." "The updated MRE of the Sonora Lithium Project, using a cut off of 450 ppm...

Verdensproduksjonen av Scandium idag

"World production of scandium is in the order of two tonnes per year in the form of scandium oxide. The primary production is 400 kg while the rest is from stockpiles of Russia generated during the Cold War. These stockpiles are bound to be exhausted within the foreseeable future, and alternative...

Scandium is Going to Go ‘Ballistic’

"The metal’s primary applications are in solid oxide fuel cells and scandium-aluminum alloys, but it can also be used in ceramics, electronics, lighting and phosphorous and displays." "That might sound promising, but as anyone who’s dipped a toe into the space realizes, commercially viable deposits...

NioCorp’s Elk Creek Resource Now Includes Scandium and Titanium

"Ferroniobium, which will still be the “primary driver” for Elk Creek, is used in the production of high-strength, low-alloy steels. The company has already secured an offtake agreement with ThyssenKrupp (ETR:TKA) for 50 percent of planned ferroniobium production from Elk Creek." "With that in...

Kritiske jordelementer (REE) og kritiske metaller (RM)

Sjeldne jordelementer (REE): Specifically, REEs include the light REEs (LREEs) such as lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, samarium, europium, and the heavy REEs (HREEs) gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, lutetium, scandium and yttrium. "While most...

Et mulig fremtidig alternativ til landbasert gruvevirksomhet

Utvinning av kritiske elementer på forbipasserende asteroider kan bli virkelighet en gang i fremtiden. Enn så lenge er dette bare på planlegging- og undersøkelsesstadiet. På grunn av at det vil ta lang tid før asteroideutvinning kan realiseres og fordi kritisk mangel på diverse elementer er nært...

The Process of Mining REEs and other Strategic Elements

"Opening a new mine is an expensive, time-intensive process. Most mines must operate for years to cover initial start-up costs; therefore, they are only opened after careful market analysis. In the case of the rare earth elements (REEs), there has only recently been a significant increase in REE...

Egenskaper og bruksområder til scandiumforsterket aluminium

"Scandium-reinforced aluminum alloys represent a new generation of high-performance alloys that display numerous advantages over high-strength aluminum alloys. Scandium-reinforced alloys are much stronger than other high-strength alloys, exhibit significant grain refinement, strengthen welds,...
