Energy Fuels (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR), a leading U.S.-based uranium mining company that is also moving faster than any other company to re-establish a domestic rare earth elements (“REE”) supply chain, appears set to benefit from growth of the global REE market. A recent Mordor Intelligence article is reporting that the sector has reached an estimated 161,354.65 tons this year, with an expected compound annual growth rate (“CAGR”) of more than 4% between now and 2027. “According to Mordor, factors driving the growth of the market include high demand from emerging economies and dependency of ‘green technology’ on rare earth elements,” reads a recent article. Energy Fuels is “focused on responsibly producing the raw materials needed for the clean-energy revolution and, in 2021, began recovering REEs. The effort is complementary, as the highest-value REE-bearing minerals also contain uranium and other naturally radioactive elements that need to be managed or recovered. UUUU’s White Mesa Mill in Utah is the only existing facility in North America with the licenses and capabilities to process monazite, the highest value REE mineral in the world. Last year, Energy Fuels began commercial production of an intermediate REE product, called ‘mixed rare earth carbonate’ that is ready for REE separation without further processing. This makes Energy Fuels the only U.S. company producing an REE product this far down the REE supply chain. The company plans to fully integrate REE production in the next two to three years.”
