Rare Element files utility patent application


Rare Element announced that it has filed a utility patent application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that combines its initial provisional patent on the “Rare Earth Element Extraction” process technology, filed in January 2013, with its “Extraction of Thorium from Rare Earth Compounds and Related Methods” provisional patent, filed in November 2013. Collectively, this extraction technology enhances the recovery of rare earth elements from ores mined from the company’s Bear Lodge Project in northeast Wyoming, improving the efficiency of the process and isolating the thorium for easy and safe third-party disposal.
