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.
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.
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 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.

2022 Elk Creek Feasibility Study
According to NioCorp’s June 2022 Elk Creek Feasibility Study, the Project has a Pre-Tax Net Present Value of $2.8 billion, a pre-tax Internal Rate of Return 29.2%, and a relatively long mine life of 38 years. The Study also confirms that the Project’s rare earth indicated resource is second only to MP Materials’ Mountain Pass deposit in the U.S.
Our Critical Minerals
NioCorp plans to produce three minerals at its Elk Creek, Nebraska Project that are all considered “critical” by the U.S. Government. This makes the Elk Creek Project one of the few pure-play, greenfield critical minerals mines in the U.S. that have a NI-43-101 Feasibility Study completed and are ready for funding and construction.
