Mkango Resources is paying up with the help of a new partner up to acquire full control of pioneering British magnet recycler HyProMag. The companies plan to build a plant in the U.S. next, rolling out further HyProMag’s technology for processing of magnet scrap using hydrogen, developed at the University of Birmingham. First production using the process is targeted for the UK this year, Germany in 2024 and the U.S. to follow as the Vancouver-based minerals company continues to pursue development of its Songwe Hill rare earths property in Africa.

This White Paper from Arnold Magnetics describes the magnetization losses that are possible in SmCo and NdFeB permanent magnet materials. Reversible losses are first discussed followed by irreversible losses, which can be caused by temperature, external fields or radiation. Losses over time by magnetic viscosity are also discussed. Finally, permanent losses caused by corrosion, hydrogen, high temperatures and radiation are considered.
Neo Performance Materials, considered a bellwether of the permanent magnetics industry, has named a new president in concert with the upcoming retirement of its CEO and long-time leader Constantine Karayannopoulos and, in rapid succession, recently consummated two deals that further its mines-to-magnets vertical integration strategy:
By acquiring SG Technologies Group Ltd (SGTec) in the UK, Neo moved further up the value chain and expands its specialty manufacturing footprint in Europe to better serve rapidly growing magnet demand from the electric vehicles, electronics and clean energy industries.
In Greenland, it progressed another step in developing its own rare earths mine as the government approved transfer of an exploration license from Hudson Resources of Canada, clearing the way for Neo to acquire it. […]
