  • Northern Minerals Limited (ASX: NTU the Company) is focussed on becoming the first significant producer of the heavy rare earth (HRE), dysprosium outside of China. The Company has a large landholding in Western Australia (WA) and the Northern Territory (NT) that is highly prospective for this element. Its current portfolio consists of three projects, the Browns Range and John Galt projects in WA, and the Boulder Ridge Project located in the NT.
    Of these projects, Northern Minerals’ 100% owned Browns Range Project (the Project) is its flagship project, where it has a number of deposits and prospects containing high value dysprosium and other HREs, hosted in xenotime mineralisation.
    Dysprosium is an essential ingredient in the production of NdDyFeB (neodymium dysprosium iron-boron) magnets used in clean energy and high technology solutions. As a result of increasing global demand for these applications dysprosium supply is critical.
    The xenotime’s richness in dysprosium and other high value HREs, in combination with the mainly silica host rock, provides a key competitive advantage. It allows the ore to be significantly concentrated, up to 30 times through the beneficiation stage, with excellent recoveries. Northern Minerals has undertaken extensive testwork to develop a two stage process flowsheet, consisting of a beneficiation and hydrometallurgical plant, to produce a high value, high purity dysprosium rich, mixed rare earth carbonate product for export.
    The John Galt and Boulder Ridge projects are at early stages of exploration, with both displaying similar mineralisation to the Browns Range Project.

This provides RUSAL with exceptional operational flexibility and enables it to control every stage of the manufacturing process and ensure the highest quality of products.
    RUSAL operates in 19 countries on 5 continents. The company’s core smelting capacities are located in Siberia, thus benefiting from the access to the renewable and environmentally clean hydropower and the proximity to the thriving market of China.
    With aluminium industry facing oversupply challenges, RUSAL optimizes its capacities through suspending the least efficient smelters and converting them into producers of value added products. At the same time RUSAL builds new highly effective smelters in Eastern Siberia in order to get ready to the demands of the balanced market when aluminium consumption creates enough room for existing capacities.
    The access to rich bauxite deposits will enable RUSAL to meet growing production demands throughout the next 100 years.
    RUSAL strives to achieve the leadership in efficiency and is already among the three most cost- effective aluminium producers in the world. The company’s in-house R&D, engineering and design capabilities enable it create and launch new technologies that help to streamline production and cut capital and operation costs.
    A further critical strategic goal of the company is to diversify its business through creating and developing its own power generating capacities that upon completion are expected to satisfy at least 60% of the company’s demand for power. To pursue this goal RUSAL together with RusHydro is constructing a new Boguchanskaya hydropower station in the Krasnoyarsk region. RUSAL is also part of the joint venture to develop the Ekibastuz coal basin in Kazakhsta.
