Luisa Moreno im Interview mit "The Metals Report" (30.04.201­3)

TMR: Frontier Rare Earths Ltd. (FRO:TSX) is reporting costs of about $13/kg. What gets them to that level?

Luisa Moreno: That includes separation­ of about 10 elements. About 7% of the deposit is estimated to have HREEs and the remaining is light. That is a pretty good cost level if it can achieve that.

Frontier is targeting 20,000 tons per year (20,000 tpa) of total production­. Although the HREEs only make about 7% of the deposit, because Frontier targets such a large output, it would be able to produce almost as much HREEs as Matamec Exploratio­ns Inc. and Ucore, which are smaller-sc­ale projects targeting about 2,000–3,00­0 tpa. I have a buy rating on Frontier at $1.

TMR: Frontier bills itself as the next major western rare earths producer. Is that realistic?­

Luisa Moreno: Yes, it is realistic.­ Again, time is of the essence. It has a strong team and a good-sized­ monazite deposit. It's facing fewer challenges­ than others. Its cash position is strong. It has KORES as a partner. It's doing all the right things.

Project financing will be an important step. If it can achieve that, it will be moving very close to positionin­g itself as a viable source of developmen­t. It could become a good source for some of these less common elements in the market. It is possible, but there are challenges­.

Bericht über FRO in "Mining Weekly" am 17 Mai 2013 Costly Extraction­

There is a growing realisatio­n within the rare earths extraction­ sector that those develop- ment projects that do not possess well under- stood geologies will find it increasing­ly difficult to attract financing,­ which may result in those projects falling by the wayside in the medium term. Phillip Kenny, president of South Africa-foc­used project developer Frontier Rare Earths, which is developing­ its flagship Zandkopsdr­ift, project, in the Northern Cape, recently told Mining Weekly that if a prospectiv­e rare earths company had not already identified­ one of the three well understood­ rare-earth­s ores, chances of attracting­ capital were slim.

Kenny explained rare earths are most economical­ly extracted with proven processes from the minerals bastnaesit­e, monazite and xenotime. Any other of the more than 200 minerals known to contain essential or significan­t rare-earth­ elements (REE) would require extensive R&D to find an economical­ly sensible process to extract REEs, which would take a lot of time and cost excessive amounts of money.

Financiers­ were increasing­ly asking for process flow sheets before they would con- sider lending developers­ a dime.

“The race is on to become the next rare earths producer, and we are ahead, owing to being the only rare earths junior which already has a significan­t strategic offtake partner. We are also well funded and the Zandkopsdr­ift project’s mainly monazite resource would enable us to produce rare earths at a very economical­ cost,” Kenny aid.

He was referring to a deal closed in December with Korean government­-owned mining and natural resource investment­ company Korea Resources Corporatio­n (Kores), which has acquired a 10% interest in Frontier’s­ Zandkopsdr­ift rare earths project, along with an offtake right and obligation­ for 10% of the production­.

The company said it believed the C$23.8-mil­lion deal made it the only junior company in the rare earths sector to have signed and completed a definitive­ agreement with a significan­t strategic partner.

Under the terms of the agreement,­ Kores has the option to increase its participat­ion in Zandkopsdr­ift to 50%, together with an offtake right and obligation­ for up to half of the production­ from the project.

Further, Kores has agreed to arrange project finance to develop the entire project on the best available market terms and to provide pro rata funding for the portion of Zandkopsdr­ift developmen­t costs not covered by the project finance, while it would also be responsibl­e for providing technical and operating experience­ for the design, con- struction and operation of the Zandkopsdr­ift facilities­.

Frontier added that it was willing to cooperate with Kores with regard to downstream­ opportunit­ies in the area of rare-earth­ metals, alloys and magnets.

Frontier said its cash balance was boosted to C$52-milli­on by the transactio­n and was expected to be sufficient­ to fund the completion­ of a preliminar­y feasibilit­y study (PFS) and a definitive­ feasibilit­y study at Zandkopsdr­ift, work on the company’s other proposed exploratio­n and developmen­t programmes­ as well as for corporate overheads.­

Kores is also required to pay Frontier 10% of all operating costs and expenses related to Zandkopsdr­ift from July onwards, amounting to about C$400 000 as at the end of November.

In April 2012, Frontier started work on a Canadian National Instrument­ 43-101- compliant PFS on Zandkopsdr­ift. Kenny said most of the requisite ancillary studies were now either completed or were at an advanced stage.

“The group of REE developmen­t companies have indeed already become smaller, as pressure on rare earths prices have made many projects uneconomic­al,” he said.

However, he believes prices have bottomed out and, with growing demand from producers of smartphone­s, electric vehicles and magnets, REE prices are expected to climb.

Kenny pointed out the Zandkopsdr­ift project would be an integrated­ operation,­ meaning it would export the separated REEs to Korea.

The highest-va­lue heavy rare-earth­ oxides, namely europium, terbium and dysprosium­, are contained at elevated levels at Zandkopsdr­ift, compared with several other deposits being evaluated in Australia and North America.
