Khalzan Buregtei REE (the “KB”) is a mineral deposit in western Mongolia that contains a group of elements known as the rare-earth elements (REE) and is notable for its extremely rich in dysprosium. Khalzan Buregtei is categorized as a peralkaline granite REE deposit. Although there are several other REE deposit of this type around the world, there is only one operating rare-earth mine in a peralkaline granite, a Lovo-zero in Russia

DEPOSIT TYPE

Khalzan Buregtei  is described by geologist as a "peralkaline intrusion" type of deposit that is richer in rare earths that in high demand and that command higher and stable commoditty prices. The deposit also host several by-products, like niobium and tantalum

GEOLOGY & MINING HIGHLIGHT

RPM utilized comparing two approaches: one using a dysprosium cut-off grade of 150 ppm (aligned with the PEA study), and another based on estimating mining potential through overall 'block value' without a specific cut-off grade

MNREC ENG 2024_JAN (1).png
  • Three more elements have been classified as “payable”

  • Comprehensive evaluation for enhanced resource assessment in both High and Mid-Grade zone

  • An optimal opportunity for open-pit mining operations
