The facility is still under construction, but SRC head Minister Jeremy Harrison said this shows the value of the investment they have made in the building.

“SRC is proud to be a world leader in rare earth processing and separation technology, and being able to add metal processing to that list is an incredible achievement.

The Saskatchewan government said the three-stage rare earth processing facility is the first of its kind in North America, and products from the facility are expected to go on sale internationally in 2024.

The first stage concentrates the ore into mixed rare earth carbonates, according to the state.

The second stage separates the mixture to create commercially pure rare earth elements.
