They have significant military, and national security applications and in the production of green energy technologies, such as, high strength, light weight, rare earth magnets. Defense Metals is well-positioned to meet demand for North American-sourced critical REE’s with one of the highest grade road accessible deposits, with potential to reduce the political and strategic risk of current reliance on Chinese REE sources.
Defense Metals is advancing the Wicheeda REE Deposit through resource expansion drilling, metallurgical optimization, and initiation of
