DIVISIONS

Overview

Leading Edge Materials currently operate in four divisions, Graphite, Lithium, Rare Earth and Cobalt (launching soon). Our divisions all have assets in northern Europe. Please explore our general information about each mineral and for more detail each asset has a specific page.

GRAPHITE

Graphite is a crystalline form of carbon that occurs in natural or synthetic form. The atoms of carbon can be bonded in numerous ways which are called allotropes, of which graphite is one. To make covalent bonds with other atoms, carbon atoms have…

Woxna Graphite
LITHIUM

Lithium is  a soft, silver-white and highly reactive metal used primarily in the aluminium industry, lithium ion batteries, glass and ceramics. Lithium is the lightest metal.  The supply of lithium is highly concentrated amongst four major…

Bergby Lithium Project
RARE EARTH

Rare earth elements (REE) refer to the fifteen lanthanides (atomic numbers 57 to 71) plus scandium (21) and yttrium (39). They are typically classified into two groups, light (La – Sm) (LREE) and heavy (Eu – Lu plus Y) (HREE), although sometimes there…

Norra Karr REE Project
COBALT

Cobalt is a clear, greyish-silver, brittle metal that is capable of being magnetized. The material retains its strength at high temperatures and has low thermal and electrical conductivities. Cobalt forms alloys with other metals…
