Argus Americas Rare Earths Summit 2017


Commerce ResourcesCommerce Resources’ is focused on the development of the Ashram Rare Earth Element (REE) and Fluorspar Deposit, a carbonatite with monazite and bastnaesite the primary rare earth bearing minerals. As such, Ashram compares favorably in terms of geology and mineralogy to the deposits that dominate current and historic production globally.

Due to the simple mineralogy, the company is able to produce rare earth mineral concentrates of >45% REO at high recovery (~75%), as well as a potential fluorite by-product with no added processing cost. Commerce has a Binding MOU with Norfaclo Sales, a subsidiary of Glencore, for discounts on acid sales. In addition, the Government of Quebec is Commerce Resources’ largest shareholder, through an investment of $1M made by Ressources Quebec in February 2017.

Since the 2013 publication of a project feasibility study, the company is working to optimize metallurgical processing, including the individual separation of rare earths, to build a second pilot plant, and to design a demonstration pilot plant.

Its other energy-related projects include properties with lithium (Tansim), cobalt (Fabre), and nickel-cobalt (Vulcain). Matamec is also exploring for gold on six properties located in Quebec and Ontario, Canada.
