    REE project could see output in 2020

    Rose Ragsdale, For Mining News|Updated Sep 25, 2020

    Canada is one of the world's richest sources of raw commodities, not least of which are the so-called rare earth elements. While China currently dominates global production and hosts some 35 percent of the world's known resources, observers believe Canada is endowed with world-class rare earths deposits, which could account for as much as 40-50 percent of the world's REE reserves. Demand for rare earth elements, along with lithium minerals, tin and other critical materials,...

  • Bumpy ride ahead for NWT mining

    Rose Ragsdale, For Mining Explorers|Updated Aug 14, 2020

    While mining activity remained strong in the Northwest Territories in 2019, industry and government officials alike worried that the robust sector, driven largely by production at three diamond mines, has entered a prolonged downward slide. The near-term economic outlook for the territory, which covers 1.3 million square kilometers in Canada's central Arctic region, continues to be bleak as its diamond mines that have now passed peak production and replacement projects are in... Full story

    Rose Ragsdale, For Mining News|Updated Aug 31, 2014

    WHITEHORSE, Yukon Territory - Quieter streets, emptier skies, shorter business hours and closed shops here are sure signs of tough times in the mining industry.

In the wake of more than two years of scarce capital, mineral exploration activity is a shadow of the booming times the territory...
