Bard Ventures Ltd. (CVE:CBS) reports its Rhenium results from its Lone Pine molybdenum property, Houston, B.C., Canada.
The press release is quoted as saying:
Rhenium is used as an important component in superalloys for blades in turbine engines and this is the major use today. Rhenium is an ideal metal for use at very high temperatures, which makes it suitable for rocket motors. Rhenium is added to tungsten and molybdenum to form alloys that are used as filaments for ovens and lamps. It is also used in thermocouples which can measure temperatures above 2000 C, and for electrical contacts which stand up well to electric arcs. Rhenium is used in high-temperature superalloys that are used to make jet engine parts and in platinum-rhenium catalysts which in turn are primarily used in making lead-free, high-octane gasoline.
