Energy Fuels (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR) continues to focus on its efforts to produce commercial rare earth elements (“REEs”) as well as on uranium production as the U.S. government looks to support moves to limit dependence on other countries for the mining and production of various metals. “Without a doubt, Energy Fuels is making major strides toward restoring critical U.S. rare earth supply chains while also maintaining our position as the leading U.S. uranium producer,” said UUUU’s president and CEO Mark S. Chalmers in a recent update. “On rare earths, our efforts over the past several months culminated in the announcement on March 1 that Energy Fuels and Neo Performance Materials were creating a new, U.S.-European rare earth supply chain. In early March, we began to receive shipments of rare-earth-rich natural monazite sands from Chemours’ Georgia heavy mineral sand operations. In late-March, we began to ramp-up production of an intermediate rare earth product at our White Mesa Mill in Utah using monazite from Chemours. This is expected to be a high-value product ready to be separated and refined into value-added rare earth products at Neo’s plant in Europe. At this time, no other U.S. company is producing a product this far down the rare earth value chain.”
