THE PURPOSE OF THIS INQUIRY is to update and expand a 2012 inventory of research in Canada regarding rare earth elements (REE). The inventory is part of the work envisioned by the new Canadian REE Research Network to support and advance this sector. The content of the inventory, to be maintained by NRCan, will be made available to all members of the network.
The underlying objectives of the inventory are to (a) minimize the duplication of REE research, (b) maximize innovation in the overall recovery of REE, and (c) foster synergies or partnerships in research activities.
This survey has been sent out to over one hundred stakeholders including academia, junior exploration companies, provincial and territorial representatives, federal government colleagues and consulting engineering firms.
If you did not receive this survey, and if you are engaged in REE research, please complete the following table for any projects involving rare earth elements that have either been completed during since 2007 (over the last five years), are currently under way or in the planning stages.
Please replicate the summary table as many times as required. If you have any questions, comments or concerns about this inquiry, please do not hesitate to contact us. Thank you for your participation in this survey.
