Investment summary

Rare Element Resources (REE) is in the process of developing the Bear Lodge rare earth oxide (REO) project in Wyoming, US. REE has announced improved potential recoveries relating to its proprietary extraction technology, with a concentrate purity of 97% REOs. The project's measured and indicated resource has been increased by 10% as a result of additional drilling and the EIS has begun with the appointment of the EIS contractor and assignment of a dedicated Forest Service project manager. REE has employed a new financial director. The project is large, with expected output of 10,400tpa of REOs over a potential 40-year life of mine. The ore body is enriched with heavy rare earth elements and REOs considered critical by the US Energy and Defence departments. However, it has yet to sign up an offtake partner. Our DCF-based company valuation, at a 10% discount rate, is US$5.29/share.

Industry outlook

Rare Element Resources is well positioned to benefit from the global move to de-risk access to rare earth oxides by diversifying production away from China.
