Medallion Resources Ltd (TSX-V: MDL) is exploring for large low-cost “heavy” rare-earth-element (REE) deposits with a clear metallurgical path and cost-effective infrastructure. REE’s are key components required by many new energy-saving technologies including wind turbines, electric and hybrid vehicles, super magnets and all modern electronics. Medallion is headed by REE veteran Dr Bill Bird with support from an expert technical team that can meet the challenges of evaluating and cost-effectively exploring the best REE projects.
Medallion explores the Eden Lake REE property in western Manitoba, under an option agreement with Rare Element Resources (TSX-V: RES, NYSE AMEX: REE) to earn a 65% interest. Eden Lake is a recent discovery with potential for high neodymium values and significant heavy REE by-products.
The Company also explores over 42 square kilometres of the Red Wine peralkaline intrusion in southern Labrador under an agreement to option six mineral licenses. The Red Wine intrusion is known to contain elevated values of the “heavy” REE’s.
