Growing global demand

Demand for high-grade, ethically sourced rare earths and critical minerals has grown exponentially. And as the world transitions to renewable energy and a low-carbon global economy, demand for neodymium (Nd), praseodymium (Pr), dysprosium (Dy) and terbium (Tb), as well as zircon (Zr) and titanium (TiO2), will continue to grow.

Where does Goschen fit in?

Around 87% of the basket value of the rare earths we’re mining at Goschen is derived from high-value dysprosium, neodymium, praseodymium and terbium oxides. That translates into approximately 70% of the project’s revenue generated from the production of these rare earth minerals.

We’re also mining and processing mineral sands for zircon and titanium (rutile, ilmenite, leucoxene). These products are used in refractories, foundries and the production of ceramics (zircon) and in metal industries, paint, plastics, paper, ink, rubber, textiles, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and a host of food, vehicle, aircraft, medical and even space applications (titanium).
