NioCorp is developing a critical minerals project in Southeast Nebraska which will produce niobium, scandium and titanium. The Company is also evaluating the production potential of several rare earths from the Project. Niobium is used to produce specialty alloys as well as high-strength low-alloy (“HSLA”) steel, which is a lighter, stronger steel used in automotive, structural and pipeline applications. Scandium is a special metal that can be combined with aluminum to make alloys with increased strength and better corrosion resistance. Scandium is also an essential component of advanced solid oxide fuel cells. Titanium is used in various light alloys and is a key component of pigments used in paper, paint and plastics and is also used for aerospace applications, armor and medical implants. Magnetic rare earths, such as neodymium, praseodymium, terbium, and dysprosium, are essential to the manufacture of neodymium-iron-boron (“NdFeB”) magnets, which are used in a wide variety of military and civilian applications .
