Expert opinions including…

Jon Hykawy of Stormcrow Capital:

When 2015 started, I had thought that the rare earth world would settle down, that sanity would prevail. We would see prices stabilize at reasonable levels, and interested parties could have a meaningful discussion regarding how to undo the damage done to the market by the mess created in 2010 and 2011, when certain Chinese officials decided to “help” producers in China by implementing an illegal and overly restrictive export quota.

Wow. Was I wrong.

Robbin Lee of Rare Element Resources (TSX:RES)

We did not anticipate China’s apparent economic weakness, sector-wide pressure on resource prices, continued stock market negativity toward small-cap companies or the full impact of Molycorp’s (OTCMKTS:MCPIQ) bankruptcy.

Simon Marcotte, vice president corporate development at Mason Graphite (TSXV:LLG)

The growth in the battery sector is already very meaningful to the graphite market and is just beginning to see very strong growth.

Andrew Miller of Benchmark Mineral Intelligence

In many ways the cobalt industry has the most fragile supply structure of all battery raw materials.

Lewis Black, president, CEO and director of Almonty Industries (TSXV:AII)

On tungsten: Pricing mechanisms have exaggerated the pricing drop due to illiquidity.

E. Lee Bray, acting US Geological Survey mineral commodity specialist for magnesium

The consumption of magnesium in aluminum alloys used for automobile sheet is also increasing, and is expected to continue.
