Alumtek Minerals wins an Advance Queensland Grant of $100,000

    Alumtek Minerals has won a grant of A$100,000 from the Queensland Government to support its efforts to commercialise its proprietary technical process to extract rare earth elements from bauxite residue, working in collaboration with Queensland Alumina Ltd.  Pilot processing production is already underway with SGS metallurgy.  This follows successful bench trials in 2018 and 2019 that were undertaken with the support of Rio Tinto. Alumtek Minerals’ focus is to accelerate commercialisation of the production of rare earths at scale and create a value proposition with global application.
