Zimtu Research examines Commerce Resources’ rare earth metallurgy

by Greg Klein | October 9, 2014

How does a junior company find success in the complex world of rare earths? Derek Hamill, head of research and communications for Zimtu Capital TSXV:ZC, looks at Commerce Resources’ (TSXV:CCE) Ashram deposit in northern Quebec, finding advantageous mineralogy, REE distribution and metallurgy.

“We believe the last point to be material and often ignored—beneficiation of ore into a mixed [rare earths concentrate] can be sold to various hydrometallurgical processors who then can separate into customer-specific [rare earth oxides],” states Hamill’s 10-page research report. In that manner, a junior can avoid the “substantial business risk” of trying to process separated oxide products itself.

Hamill presents the study within a wide-ranging look at rare earths and their markets. His previous reports have covered uranium, diamonds, copper, prospect generators and Canadian resource stocks.

On October 6 Commerce Resources closed an oversubscribed private placement of over $5 million.
