North American sources of critical materials that were previously overlooked have now been rendered accessible and commercially viable because of new extraction technologies. This is similar to the opportunity fracking and horizontal drilling opened up for the U.S. domestic energy industry. CMC principals have decades of chemical and power plant permitting, construction and operations experience. This technical feasibility and team experience with project execution and management is the key to success.
We are primarily focused on producing battery grade lithium for use by manufacturers of electric vehicles, as well as extracting both light and heavy Rare Earth Elements ("REES") from mine tailings located throughout North America for inclusion in all varieties of modern electronics applications. We are applying state of the art processing techniques and proprietary technology to extract and refine Lithium from oilfield and other brines, from crude and synthetic sources of supply, and REES from various sources that were previously unrecoverable. These include recycled materials, mine tailings and other domestic sources of supply.
