by Berkeley Lovelace

RockTalk is a Stockhead video series featuring a roundtable of resources experts discussing a new macro topic each week.  

In this episode, host Peter Strachan takes a look at the rare earths market and discuss opportunities from early exploration, through to feasibility and project development.

Populating the expert panel for this discussion are Brian Thomas, technical director at Lanthanein Resources (ASX:LNR), Lachlan Reynolds, managing director at Mt Monger Resources (ASX:MTM), and Richard Brescianini, executive director of Heavy Rare Earths (ASX:HRE).

Lanthanein Resources is a mineral exploration company with a focus on the discovery of critical minerals of Rare Earth Elements in tier 1 mining jurisdictions of Western Australia and South Australia. Lanthanein is all set to start a major exploration push, drilling 10,000m to prove up its carbonatite target at Lyons rare earths project.

Mt Monger Resources is a mineral exploration and development company focussed on gold and other precious metals discoveries at the Mt Monger Gold Project and the East Laverton Gold  & Rear Earth Project in Western Australia. Investors have recently have highlighted their confidence in Mt Monger’s newly acquired Pomme rare earths and niobium project in Quebec, Canada, by backing a $3m placement.

Heavy Rare Earths is a rare earth exploration and development company that is supporting a cleaner and more sustainable future through critical minerals with key exploration project is Cowalinya, near Norseman in Western Australia. Following recent exploration and resource expansion, drilling uncovered a substantial new body of rare earths mineralisation at its Cowalinya project.
