US Critical Materials Sheep Creek Property has the highest rare earth grades in the US averaging 9% per cent (90,000 parts per million). The deposit contains at least thirteen of the “critical risk” minerals defined by the current administration.

Changing the world’s energy future and securing our nation’s critical infrastructure

INL and US Critical Materials are partnering to advance rare earth element separation technologies in the U.S., focusing on developing solutions to address the environmental issues related to mining and processing.

The increased need for rare earth elements makes finding effective, efficient, and environmentally safe methods for mining and recycling them even more vital.

Mr. James Hedrick, President of US Critical Materials, stated:

We have confirmed that Sheep Creek is the highest-grade rare-earth deposit in the United States, with a multibillion-dollar resource value. Over the course of my career independently evaluating rare earth properties within the US, I have never encountered a property with the grades being generated by Sheep Creek ...

CONCLUSION

“Carbonatites at Sheep Creek are valuable for their light rare earth content including neodymium and praseodymium, and also contain significant amounts of niobium, strontium, and gallium. The carbonatites show mineralization that indicate higher rare earth element content compared to surrounding rocks. Unlike many other rare earth deposits, Sheep Creek also contains low amounts of thorium and therefore has a limited radiometric signature, making the targets at Sheep Creek easier to identify.

Geology and geophysics indicate that the carbonatites extend down considerably and there is strong evidence that they connect at depth. “

US Critical Materials Announces The Highest-Grade Rare-Earth Deposit In The United States

The discovery in Montana is a billion-dollar “game-changer” providing a domestic source of rare earths to counter current US dependence on China.

SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 31, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — US Critical Materials Corp. is pleased to announce the highest reported total rare-earth oxide grades (TREO) of any rare earth deposit in the United States. The levels have been confirmed by analyses from Activation Labs, a well-known and highly respected independent analytical laboratory in Ancaster, Canada.

Project

Our Sheep Creek Montana property is one of the highest-grade light rare earth projects in the US.

Sheep Creek

The project covers 223 claims representing over 4500 acres ( approximately 7 square miles) of total land package.

Milestones of To-Date

One characteristic that sets Sheep Creek apart from most other rare earths projects in the U.S. is the fact that significant mineralization has been accessed and sampled underground via pre-existing mine workings.

Markets & Investments

Investment Opportunities

There is a global rush to secure critical minerals, many of which are vital for consumers, industry, and military applications. The demand for these metals will accelerate sharply in the coming years as the world continues its transition to electric vehicles and more renewable energy sources. Critical minerals are important for electronics such as semiconductors, batteries, magnets, and electric vehicle motors. Unprecedented amounts of capital are entering the critical minerals sector, with many believing the world is entering a “super cycle.”

01

Offtake Contracts

The Company is confident that it will be able to execute forward offtake contracts based on the imbalance in the marketplace, and activity of competitors. 

02

End User Investments

Due to the shortage of critical minerals, end users are investing at the beginning of the supply chain so they will not be shut out.

Significant Mineralization found At Depth

One characteristic that sets Sheep Creek apart from most other rare earths projects in the U.S. is the fact that significant mineralization has been accessed and sampled underground via pre-existing mine workings.

US Critical Materials has recently confirmed mineralization at depth below high-grade surface samples of 17.05% TREO and 16.44% TREO.  Based on the presence of mineralization at depth, the technical team intends to focus exploration efforts on these promising zones.
