This is an important step towards positioning Auxico as a major player in the global rare earths market, as we have been strategically working on developing diversified sources of critical minerals. Now that the procedures for export have been established and CAN has been successful in selling the first lot, we expect the sale of rare earth concentrates from DRC to ramp-up to 1,000 tonnes per month."
