NioCorp is developing North America's only niobium / scandium / titanium project. Located near Elk Creek, Nebraska, the Elk Creek Project is the highest grade niobium project in North America, as well as the largest prospective producer of scandium in the world. These elements are unique and valuable superalloy materials that are strategic and critical to many industries and national defense technologies.
NioCorp has released the results of the Elk Creek Feasibility Study, which you can see here. The Feasibility Study shows anticipated production of 7,055 tonnes per annum (tpa) of Ferroniobium, 103 tpa of Scandium Trioxide, and 11,445 tpa of Titanium Dioxide over its 32-year operating life. The Elk Creek Project is estimated to have pre-tax Net Present Value (NPV) of US$2.3 billion, with a pre-tax Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 24.3%, and to generate gross Life Of Mine (“LOM”) revenue of $17.6 billion, with operating margin of $12.2 billion. These economics were calculated using an 8% discount rate.
