  1. This new wbsite took good and resourceinvestornews is to be congratulated.
    I invest in numerous tantalum companies as I see a wonderful future for this strategically important metal. A comment if I may – beware of niobium projects that are being prooted as tantalum projects, as the metallurgy and processing of this type of project produces expensive tantalum, due to the chemical route that must be employed tpo separate the tantalum and niobium.

    I also wish to take the oportuity to mention a world scale project (true tantalum project) that is laregly being overlooked. I refer to Gippsland Limited’s Abu dabbab and Nuweibi projects, which I rcall are advanced and well ahead of the pack having a JORC Code resource of more than 140 million tonnes which is huge. I have got a sustantial investment in this operation as I am most impressed.
