Last Thursday Minera BioLantanidos, unique project in Chile dedicated to the exploration and extraction of so-called “Rare Earths”, made his debut in the regional press of the Bío Bío.
Various media such as Radio Bio Bio, Bío Bío TV Channel 9 and Channel 13 distinguished the recent initiative and summarized the importance it has for the region, both in terms of development and innovation.
In this regard, Radio Bio Bio mentioned in one of his radio notes that BioLantanidos could “generate significant development” in the area and noted that the elements that it explores are the “mineral of the future” because its use is linked mainly to the development of components of technology products such as smartphones, tablets and notebooks.
Furthermore, the radio stated that with these explorations Chile is “within the privileged places around the possibility of production of this mineral,” adding that, with the work carried out by the mining, there’s “an opportunity to create development and progress for the commune (of Penco) given that it is a local company that is developing this process here in the Bío Bío”.
Another media that distinguished the work of Minera BioLantanidos was Channel 13, which highlighte in a television note the importance of the initiative and how the “Rare Earths” could give a significant chance of developing for the town of Penco and the region (see note at this link).
Within the next few days, the project led by the Metallurgical Engineer Arturo Albornoz will be released through other national media as El Sur, Diario Concepción, MEGA and El Mercurio.
It should be noted, finally, that Minera BioLantanidos is a project born in the Bío Bío that will become the first national and South American iniciative to explore and extract commercially the “Rare Earths”, whose production is currently dominated in a 95% for China.
