Company & Project Background: Frontier Rare Earths is a private company headquartered in Luxembourg. Frontier’s principal asset is the Zandkopsdrift project in South Africa, which will produce magnet rare earths and battery grade high purity manganese sulphate monohydrate (HPMSM) - two of the critical raw materials required to support the energy transition. Zandkopsdrift is fully permitted and first production is targeted for 2028. Frontier expects Zandkopsdrift to be one of the lowest cost producers of magnet rare earths and HPMSM outside China. Proven and probable mineral reserves will support production of 4ktpa of magnet rare earths and 100ktpa of battery grade HPMSM over a 45-year mine life. 
Frontier is also developing the Nipacue graphite project in the Cabo Delgado province of Mozambique. Nipacue hosts a large high-grade flake graphite deposit with a mineral resource of 56Mt at 7% TGC.  A mining permit has been issued, and the project is expected to be one of the lowest cost producers of graphite outside China, with target production of 140ktpa of graphite concentrate. 

Frontier is seeking to identify prospective investors, partners and off-takers to assist in advancing Zandkopsdrift and Nipacue through DFS and into production.
