Capture. Process. Purify.

American Rare Earth, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Resources Corporation (NASDAQ: AREC), owns and is expanding a highly scalable platform for the isolation and purification of rare earth and battery metals. Our technology platform enables us to utilize a low cost environmentally sensitive process to isolate and purify elements in a scalable process.

The heart of our rare earth and battery metals recycling process is to capturing end of life products (windmill generators, electric vehicle motors, lithium-ion batteries / black mass, and carbon based deposit feedstocks), digest them to a salt and to then utilize separation displacement chromatography to isolate and purify the individual elements at a 99%+ purity.

"American Rare Earth is changing the dynamics for the domestic supply of critical and rare earth elements for the worlds electrification marketplace. Our projects are highly scalable and can completely disrupt the supply chain and thought process around rare earth extraction and development. We aim to scale at an aggressive pace in terms of production be one of the only environmentally positive critical element producers in the world."

Our operations
American Rare Earth is building a rare earth and battery metals processing plant that can scale rapidly and economically produce isolated and purified rare earth and battery metals for the North American market.
Processing Facility
We are currently in the design phase of our larger scale commercial facility (magnitude of 10 to 20x current facility) that will operate up to 12 production trains to isolate and purify rare earth elements and battery metals from a multitude of feedstocks capable of producing over 3.0 million kgs of rare earth and critical elements.

Our first facility, which is in the final stages of completion, is capable of generating north of $5 million of revenues producing 56,000 kgs of 99%+ purity of sellable rare earth elements and battery metals.
IP Portfolio
Over the last six years the company has put together a full lifecycle technology process chain (Capture. Process. Purify.) of over 16 patents and technologies licenses.

Our IP will enable a full domestic supply chain that is not only environmentally sensitive but very cost effective versus the existing technology used in China.
