According to the announcement, the company has started rare earth production starting with ore crushing.  

Vital Metals noted that its mining contractor Nahanni Construction Ltd completed the first blast of ore at Nechalacho’s North T Zone on 28 June.  The company then started production, with first ore crushed at Nechalacho on 30 June 2021.

Vital Metals managing director Geoff Atkins noted that the company’s crews worked hard on-site through June to accelerate mining activities. In addition, management said that crushing and ore sorting equipment had been installed and was ready to start commissioning.

Vital Metals aims to ramp up crushing and ore sorting at Nachalacho, with full production rates expected to be achieved this month.
