TSX VENTURE: GMA
MONTREAL, June 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Geomega Resources Inc. (“GéoMégA” or the “Corporation”) (TSX.V:GMA) is pleased to announce that Innord Inc. (“Innord”), a private subsidiary controlled by GéoMégA, will begin offering some limited amounts of neodymium oxide and cobalt compounds that are currently being produced at its facilities as larger volume tests are being completed. Innord is currently focused on separation process development and scaling and not commercial production. The sellable oxides are produced during daily operation while the process is being tested with different feeds from several magnet recyclers or producers. The main objective of this operation is to prove process scalability and robustness. On the other hand, having our product in the hand of end-users and receiving feedback from them will help us modify and optimize the process if necessary.
A new section on our website is now available for potential clients and research institutions to request additional information regarding purchasing neodymium oxide, cobalt sulphate, cobalt oxide and cobalt hydroxide of various purities. This page can be accessed here: Click Here
“This is another major step in our development of the ISR technology. As we advance our scale up testing, we are producing more and more material that we can now start offering to various groups who need the material for research or product testing purposes. Furthermore, we are proud to say that this neodymium oxide is produced in Canada through recycling, a major step in diversifying supply of rare earth elements and making it more environmentally sustainable. We are proud of our achievements and believe that we are on the right track to bring commercial production of rare earth elements to Canada in the future.” commented Kiril Mugerman, President and CEO of GéoMégA and Innord.
