Critical raw materials are determined as such by the European Union based on their economic importance and supply risk.

They are directly linked to high growth technologies such as lithium-ion batteries and permanent magnets for electric motors and wind power that underpin the sustainable transition of society.

Leading Edge Materials Corp. is developing a portfolio of projects located within the borders of the European Union with the vision to supply sustainable and secure sources of critical raw materials to European industrial ecosystems.
