NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --
USA Rare Earth and Texas Mineral Resources Corp Announce Opening of First Heavy and Light Rare Earths Processing Facility Outside of China


Wheat Ridge, Colorado pilot plant expected to be operational in Q1 2020



Pilot plant will utilize proven continuous ion exchange/continuous ion chromatography (CIX/CIC) processing



Round Top ore will be processed into fully separated high purity rare earths and include lithium, technology metals and industrial minerals



Pilot plant will ultimately be moved to Texas and scaled to full industrial capability



Active discussions with potential tolling customers currently being serviced in China

USA Rare Earth LLC, the funding and development partner of the Round Top Heavy Rare Earth and Critical Minerals Project with Texas Mineral Resources Corp. (OTCQB: TMRC), is pleased to announce the opening of a pilot plant facility in Wheat Ridge, Colorado for the purpose of fully separating and purifying rare earth and other tech metals and critical minerals, leachedA from ore from the Round Top project, located just outside El Paso, Texas.A  Aside from the significant concentration of heavy rare earths (HREE's) and lithium, the Round Top deposit also includes uranium, beryllium, gallium, hafnium and zirconium a?? all of which are on the U.S. Government's Critical Minerals List.A  Pini Althaus, CEO of USA Rare Earth, commented, "Our Colorado pilot plant will be the first processing facility outside of China with the ability to separate the full range of rare earths a?? Lights, Mids and Heavies.A Our Wheat Ridge pilot plant is the second piece of a 100% U.S.-based rare earth oxide supply chain, drawing on feedstock from our Round Top heavy rare earth and critical minerals deposit in southwestA Texas. Taken together, Round Top and our pilot plant constitute essential links in restoring a domestic U.S. rare earth supply chain, extracting rare earths and processing them into individual REE oxides a?? without the material ever leaving the United States, thereby alleviating the current dependence on China for the both raw materials and mineral processing.A
