About NioCorp

What We Believe

We believe in strengthening our world and protecting the environment through superalloy materials like Niobium, Scandium, and Titanium. These critical minerals help improve fuel economy, increase safety, reduce harmful air emissions, protect our environment, and help keep the world safer and more secure.

Elk Creek Project

The Elk Creek Superalloy Materials Project is one of the few pure-play critical minerals projects in the U.S. with a definitive feasibility study completed and key U.S. federal permits already obtained.  It is the highest grade niobium project in North America as well as one of the world's largest prospective scandium producers.

The Leadership Team

NioCorp is led by a Board of Directors comprised of distinguished and highly experienced leaders, including several with decades of experience in the mining and advanced materials spaces.  Our management team is also highly experienced in designing, constructing, and operating critical minerals projects.

A Unique Investment

A publicly traded company currently listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX:NB) and the US-based Over The Counter exchange (OTCQX:NIOBF), NioCorp represents a unique investment opportunity.  NioCorp is a former TSX Venture 50® "Top Performer" among mining companies.

2019 Elk Creek Feasibility Study

The 2019 Elk Creek Feasibility Study shows that the Project is expected to deliver higher Net Present Value, stronger financial returns, accelerated cash flows, a longer mine life, higher production of all of NioCorp’s planned products in the first 10 years of operation, and a further reduction in execution risk and environmental impacts as compared to the 2017 Project Feasibility Study.
