Ucore Rare Metals (TSX.V: UCU) (OTCQX: UURAF) has announced changes to its executive and management team as a key component to the transition to its production model. The company named rare earth industry veteran Geoff Atkins as vice president of business development; former Innovation Metals Corp. RapidSX(TM) platform design manager Jaan Hurditch, CEng, as engineering director; and entrepreneur, scientist and government relations expert Dr. Ahmad Hussein as government liaison and a member of the Advisory Board. These appointments come as Ucore is focused on the deployment of its RapidSX technology platform for the separation of heavy and light rare earth elements, the development of its planned Strategic Metals Complex REE processing facility plant in Louisiana, and securing upstream and downstream partnerships to support these endeavors. “One of the key pillars of our business model includes building the right team to execute a fundamentally sound economic business plan underpinned by the best available technology,” said Ucore Rare Metals chair and CEO Pat Ryan, PEng, in the press release. “The recent additions to the Ucore team allow the company to strengthen and advance this fundamental corporate tenet as Ucore executes its transition to a technology company entering into a production environment throughout 2023 and 2024.
