The “Godfather of Rare Earths” Jack Lifton to host a new InvestorIntel critical materials’ market series
Expert Jack Lifton to explore how the American recent policy shift has inspired a rare earths revival and a rebirth of a domestic rare earth permanent magnet supply chain
Toronto, November 4, 2019 — InvestorIntel, a leading online source of trusted investor information, is pleased to announce Jack Lifton as the new host for leading coverage of all related rare earths, critical materials and technology metal interviews in this geopolitically charged sector.
Adding significant depth of knowledge and expertise to the bench strength of the existing InvestorIntel Corp. team, CEO Tracy Weslosky comments: “Rare earths are attracting half of our viewer interest on InvestorIntel.com, providing strong indicators that the sector is attracting investor and capital market industry. Jack was there first calling the rare earths market in 2008, just before the market exploded in 2009-2010, so of course I speed-dialed the ‘Godfather of rare earths’ to ask him how fast he could bring us all up to speed on what is ‘real’ in the market coverage. Instead of just interviewing him, we felt we would all thrive if we had him interview the industry. We were exceptionally delighted when the expert who coined the term ‘technology metals’ agreed to lead the charge for market updates. Jack’s interviews will unquestionably be the most informative interviews in the industry, published on InvestorIntel.com, YouTube, and redistributed through iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Google podcast channels.”
Recently publishing How the American recent policy shift has inspired a rare earths revival Jack writes that the American Federal Government’s recent policy shift to require national self-sufficiency in critical metals for technology for the Defense Department, the interest is now on whether total domestic supply chains can be constructed or revived, he adds that: “the Chinese costs are rapidly rising to first world levels, and that this fact as much as any other is driving the rebirth of a domestic total North American rare earth permanent magnet supply chain.”
