New Report Unveils Potential of Ionic Adsorption Clay Deposits in Revolutionizing Rare Earths Supply for EV Industry

A recently published report by eResearch Corp highlights the role of Ionic Adsorption Clay (IAC) deposits in meeting the growing demand for Rare Earth Elements (REE) crucial for the Electric Vehicle (EV) industry.

The 32-page comprehensive report, titled "Ionic Adsorption Clay Deposits Potential to Supply REE for the EV Industry," emphasizes the importance of REE in the transition to clean energy and the looming supply shortfall that threatens this shift.

Key Highlights from the Report:

Critical Role of REE in Green Technologies: The report underscores the important role of REE in the ongoing energy transition, particularly in the manufacturing of permanent magnets for EVs. REE are identified as critical raw materials in the shift towards low-carbon technologies, with a significant supply shortfall anticipated in the near future.


IAC Deposits as Sustainable REE Sources: IAC deposits, known for their low capital and operational expenses, emerge as sustainable sources of REE. These deposits are characterized by REE being adsorbed onto clay minerals, allowing easier and environmentally friendlier extraction methods.

Global Focus on IAC Projects: The report highlights several IAC-focused companies and projects across the globe, particularly in Brazil, Australia, Chile, and Uganda. These include companies such as Aclara Resources Inc. (TSX: ARA), Alvo Minerals Ltd (ASX: ALV), Appia Rare Earths & Uranium Corp. (CSE: API), BBX Minerals Ltd. (ASX: BBX), and Resouro Strategic Metals Inc. (TSXV: RSM | OTC: RSGOF | FSE: 8TX).

Advantages of IAC-hosted REE Deposits: The report elaborates on the benefits of IAC-hosted REE deposits over hard rock-hosted deposits, including easier accessibility, lower extraction costs, reduced environmental impact, quicker production timelines, and higher grades of valuable HREE.


Implications for the EV Industry and Beyond:

The report's findings are important for the EV industry and other sectors dependent on REE. With the expected exponential growth in REE demand, driven by the global push for green power and electric mobility solutions, the development of IAC deposits could play a crucial role in meeting this demand.

Furthermore, the report emphasizes the strategic importance of diversifying REE supply chains to mitigate risks associated with the current centralized supply dominated by a few countries.
