U.S. Rare Earths Announces Extraction Of Critical Rare Earths In Montana

COMPANY PLANS TO EXPAND IN 2014 BASED ON ITS DRILLING SUCCESS

PLANO, Texas, Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Rare Earths, Inc., (OTCBB:UREE), a U.S. based domestic rare earths exploration company with more than 25,000 acres of mining claims in Idaho, Montana, and Colorado, announced today that it is beginning 2014 having successfully extracted the first critical rare earths in the continental U.S. The deposits come from the company's Last Chance Property in Montana. Preliminary metallurgical leach testing was completed by SGS of Ontario, Canada. The leach test results demonstrated a 79 percent recovery of Critical Rare Earths.

Four different leaching approaches were used to extract rare earth metals into a solution and warrant further optimization. The initial results indicate the technical feasibility of extracting much needed Critical Rare Earths for U.S. consumption from USRE's Last Chance Property.

This announcement follows U.S. Rare Earth's successful 2013 campaign, during which the company was able to drill eight holes on its Last Chance properties in Montana. Highlighted results from UREE's North Fork exploration efforts returned assays from the surface channel sampling with Total Rare Earth Oxide (TREO) averaged grades as high as 10.3 percent with Critical Rare Earth Oxide (CREO) grades running an average of 1.2 percent. The company also announced the additions of the former Commander of the United States Central Command, General Tommy Franks, and former Nebraska Governor and U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey, as well as solidified its best-in-class infrastructure under new CEO Kevin Cassidy. These accomplishments position USRE as America's primary source of critical rare earths, which are essential to making electronic devices and weapons for America and its allies.

"With China attempting to tighten their noose around the current global supply of critical rare earths by setting the foundation for a national rare earth group, there's a new sense of urgency for a domestic supply of critical rare earths," says Cassidy. "The results from our properties in Montana prove our company is on the path to developing an American supply chain that will create good jobs and take advantage of a national treasure."

According to the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics' Strategic and Critical Materials 2013 report on stockpile requirements, "six rare earth element shortfalls were identified: they are: yttrium, dysprosium, erbium, terbium, thulium, and scandium," and the "United States previously performed all stages of the rare earth material supply chain, but now most rare earth materials' processing is performed in China, giving it a dominant position that could affect worldwide supply and prices." U.S Rare Earths Inc. not only has the properties to develop a domestic supply of these critical rare earths, but it now has plans to build a complete HREE and CREE separation facility in the continental United States.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
"We are the public cloud providers. We are currently providing 50% of the resources they need for doing e-commerce business in China and we are hosting about 60% of mobile gaming in China," explained Yi Zheng, CPO and VP of Engineering at CDS Global Cloud, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
