Hexagon’s prime focus is to develop a rare earth business, with the RapidSX approach to rare earth separation a key component to provide alternative refining options for rare earth concentrate materials outside of China to create rare earth supply chain diversity. Transitioning to a low-carbon economy needs rare earth materials. Rare earth permanent magnets are critical components for e-mobility, wind turbines, consumer electronics and military applications.
Additional ‘value-add’ opportunities for shareholders include the Company’s high-grade gold exploration targets.
