Anthony Marchese, Chairman, commented: "We want to thank Dr. Pingitore and his team for their fine work. Their research has significantly expanded our knowledge of the Round Top project. Recent political events make it increasingly clear that the United States needs to quickly develop an alternative to its total dependence on China for its heavy rare earth needs in the defense sector. Potential byproducts such as lithium and beryllium significantly add to the value-creation of the project."
