About Medallion Resources
Medallion Resources Ltd (TSX-V: MDL; OTCQX: MLLOF) is exploring for large, low-production-cost, heavy-rare-earth-element (REE) deposits with straightforward metallurgy and cost-effective infrastructure. Headed by Dr. Bill Bird and supported by a technical team second to none, the company is well-positioned to efficiently evaluate the best prospective REE projects, incorporating new discovery methods and short-cuts to production. REEs are essential for many products and applications including wind turbines, electric and hybrid vehicles, super magnets, and all modern electronics.
Medallion is exploring the Eden Lake REE property in western Manitoba under an option agreement with Rare Element Resources Ltd (AMEX: REE, TSX-V: RES) that gives the right to earn a 65% interest in the exploration joint venture. A recent discovery, Eden Lake is one of North America’s most prospective REE projects, with potential for high values of neodymium and significant levels of the high-value heavy REEs. The company is also exploring over 42 square kilometres of the Red Wine peralkaline intrusion in southern Labrador under an agreement to option a 100% interest in six mineral licenses (subject to a 3% royalty). The portions of the Red Wine intrusion covered by the licenses host the mineral eudialyte, known to contain elevated values of the heavy REEs.
