Did you ever wish that you could more easily compare the projects on the TMR Advanced Rare-Earth Projects Index – perhaps even being able to sort the associated data quickly and easily?
Well, now you can – earlier today we finished revamping the way that we present the data associated with the projects on the Index. We are now showing three tables of data, each of which is fully sortable. You can even decide how many projects you want to see at any given time. To check out the layout update directly, go to the Index page.
In addition to the changes in the way that we present the project data, we have updated the Index 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 October 12, 2012. The specifics:
- On October 10, 2012, Mkango Resources Ltd. (TSX.V:MKA) announced a NI 43-101-compliant mineral-resource estimate for the Songwe project in Malawi. According to the associated press release, 13.2 Mt of the resource is at the Indicated level @ 1.62% TREO and 18.6 Mt is at the Inferred level @ 1.38% TREO (each at a cut-off grade of 1.0% TREO).
- On October 10, 2012, Kimberley Rare Earths Limited (ASX:KRE) announced that is was withdrawing from the Cummins Range JV with Navigator Resources Limited (ASX.NAV).
I have also updated the pricing used in the Index data, to reflect the average monthly prices for September 2012.
FYI, TMR is tracking a total of 442 rare-earth projects in progress associated with 270 different companies in 37 different countries.
You can access the updated details via the Index page.
