Rare Earths at Bear Lodge
The deposits at Bear Lodge contain 10 rare earth elements. Of these, five are identified as "critical" in the Department of Energy, Critical Materials Strategy Report put out in 2011. These five element plus praseodymiun, which we include because of its ability to be substituted for Neodymiun in high intensity permanent magnets, are expected to account for over 80% of the Project's projected revenues. Please see below for a list of all the elements found at Bear Lodge and a brief descriptor on how the elements are used.
