As Ashram moves towards pre-feasibility, the company now focuses on metallurgical studies that have already produced high-grade concentrates of over 40% total rare earth oxides with better than 70% recovery. A mini-pilot plant is scheduled to begin operations in late January.

The company has also retained Deloitte Global Metals & Mining Advisory Group to evaluate potential partnerships, joint ventures and offtake opportunities.
