Avalon may be on track to build Canada's first rare earth mine

  • Avalon Rare Metals (AVL +9.9%) shoots higher on a report suggesting it could build Canada's first rare earth mine, based on a stream of news recently released by AVL about its Nechalacho Rare Earth Elements Project at Thor Lake, Northwest Territories.
  • The news, as well as rising rare earth prices, have contributed to recent bullishness on AVL; "Investors would do well to keep Avalon on their watch list of companies considered to have the potential to turn rare earth deposits into mines."

    The scope of Avalon's mining plans for rare earth is huge. If implemented it will be one of the biggest in the world. So far it has not executed but I like this CEO and have been buying it on the way down from $1.36. They recently cleared some regulatory hurtles and have changed out their current COO. Hopefully they are positioning to start mining operations to take advantage of the higher mineral prices.

    Avalon has a very respectable resource. But, Quest's strange lake resource has a larger percentage of heavies compared to Nechalacho.

    We're going back and forth. I give you this- I do respect Quest. And I wish you and them well. I'm on Avalon's team. Good luck to you.
