In recent years we’ve noticed just how difficult it has become to obtain high-quailty, technical information about the rare earths, without running into a bunch of half-baked BS being put around by hype merchants and over-stimulated promoters.

Tracking down and being able to spend time with true industry experts, to learn about important technical matters, is no easy matter.

We are therefore very pleased to invite our you to a free, online webinar with not one but FOUR such experts. You can find out exactly who will be joining us by clicking here:

Here are just a few of the topics that we’ll learn about on this webinar:

  • Which specific REE minerals are the most important for future production, and why;
  • The critical difference between mineral reserves and mineral resources – and why it matters;
  • The criteria for selecting underground versus open-pit mining for rare-earth projects;
  • The key steps for processing rare earths and why flotation can be a real challenge for these minerals; and
  • The radioactive impurities that no-one seems to talk about (hint: we’re not talking about uranium or thorium).

and much more.

This is the first time that we’ve done a webinar of this type, so it’s sure to be popular – sign up now as places will be limited.

Will there be an archive copy of the webinar presentation for those of us who can’t make it to the live presentation?

@George Brunswig: folks who register will get access to replays of the webinar.

Thanks Gareth

It will be interesting to compare your webinar to a conference on ree metallurgy i am attending in Moscow hosted by VNIIHT and attended by agencies and Governments that have put ree mines into production. The companies that are attending include Rosatom ,Russian Technologies, Kazatomprom, Rhodia, Treibacher, Institute of Geology and Geophysics (Republic of Uzbekistan Academy of Science , JSC “Center of Earth Sciences, Metallurgy and Ore Beneficiation” (CESMOB), Kazakhstan, Feng Chia University, Taiwan; Stans Energy and Orbit. The topics being discussed are some that the main stream ree media have not discussed to my knowledge.

Here is the complete program for VNIIHT’s ree conference

Sorry the English link is

Thanks for sharing the link Robert.

There is any way to recover the webpage that was named on the webinar where the map of the REE projects were?

I have just listened to the webinar and it was an excellent presentation. I was especially struck by the complexity of the whole industry and in particular the separation process.

No one many people are excited by GWG since they are actually operating!

AS Jack has stated previously, REE are not a commodity and once people get to understand this very important point they will see REE’s in a new light.
