Geomega Resources to develop sustainable technologies for critical metals

On September 2, Canadian-based Geomega Resources Inc., a developer of clean technologies for the mining, refining and recycling of rare earths, announced that it is expanding and leveraging its Research & Development expertise. Geomega is currently evaluating the economic potential to extract and refine rare earths and other critical metals from a broader range of mining feeds, including mining and industrial waste streams (tailings).

Geomega has begun to work with companies that are in production, and through testing at Geomega's R&D test centre in Boucherville, the company will be evaluating the potential to extract value that is otherwise being lost today. Geomega's intention is to apply its various technologies, through collaborative licensing and royalty agreements with several industrial partners, allowing for the extraction of valuable metals contained in their waste streams, which may not be economically, technologically, or environmentally feasible today.

Geomega is already evaluating several feeds in the mining industry, e-waste, mining tailings and industrial waste that have significant value in metals such as cobalt, lithium, vanadium, nickel, niobium, titanium, tantalum, chromium and other metals.
