About Magnesium

Magnesium is a widely used industrial metal categorized by its light weight and the supply of has undergone dramatic change. The production of the metal from source has almost ceased in Canada and the United States with only one company in Utah remaining. The Chinese now produce 7/8 of the world's primary supply. The total world production is estimated at approximately 800,000 metric tonnes (2008 USGS). This distortion of the market has led to dumping charges and the incidence of an import duty in the United States; this dependence on virtually only one foreign source presents opportunity. The price of magnesium is currently US$3,300 a metric tonne or US$1.50 lb (Minor Metals). The metal has enjoyed a favorable price for decades and has reached US$6,000 a metric tonne in times of demand.

Molycor's Goal

The Company plans to advance the Tami-Mosi project toward prefeasibility and feasibility studies over the next eighteen months.
