Alkane Resources’ MD Ian Chalmers to discuss ‘Development of the Dubbo Zirconia Project, a new strategic source of critical metals’ in the 5th Annual Cleantech & Technology Metals Summit
Managing Director of Alkane Resources Ltd. (ASX:ALK; OTCQX:ANLKY), Ian Chalmers, joins a distinguished list of industry leaders to speak at the 5th Annual Cleantech and Technology Metals Summit on May 10-11 in Toronto, Canada (CTMS2016.com). The two-day summit brings together the world’s most influential clean technology and energy companies, investors, and policymakers who aim to commercialize energy-conserving, highly efficient, and low-carbon technologies.
A multi-commodity mining and exploration company based in the central west of New South Wales Australia, Alkane Resources is developing a large in-ground resource of zirconium, hafnium, niobium, tantalum and rare earth metals. The US$1 billion Dubbo Zirconia Project (DZP) will position Alkane as a strategic and significant global supplier of these products, which are prevalent in key components of many energy-efficient and green technologies.
Mr. Chalmers will provide an insight into the development strategy and timetable for the DZP which is expected to produce the full spectrum of rare earth metals, which positions it as an important alternative rare earths supplier, as well a globally significant producer of hafnium metal. Toll treatment of the DZP rare earths concentrate into individual rare earth products by specialist chemical and advanced materials company, Vietnam Rare Earth JSC (VTRE) with joint marketing and sales into Europe and North America is being negotiated beginning with a recently signed Letter of Intent (LOI).
“Our partnership with VTRE will provide Alkane with a direct path to downstream rare earth markets, supporting our plans to produce a suite of value-added products for cleantech and technology industries,” said Mr. Chalmers, Managing Director, Alkane Resources.
The Summit, presented on behalf of InvestorIntel, will be held May 10-11 in Toronto, Canada. Mr. Chalmers will be presenting on Tuesday May 10, 2016 from 10:45-11AM.
