The processing plant is anticipated to commence production of MREC in late 2019. Hastings has completed both beneficiation and hydrometallurgy pilot plants, in the process producing MREC samples which are high in neodymium and praseodymium content. These are critical materials for the production of permanent magnets and other technology applications.

Hastings estimates an annual production quantity of 15,000 tonnes of MREC which it will sell to offtake partners globally.
