Our company

MSV, is an advanced development stage world-class rare earth project. Construction is expected to start in 2017. The deposit is located within the municipality of Minaçu, Goiás State, Brazil and will supply the global and domestic markets with critical and heavy rare earths.

Our goal

To establish MSV as a low cost and environmental conscious supplier of critical rare earths to meet the strong global demand for rare earth concentrate production outside of China.

Our strategy

Our team is our greatest asset. We take pride in hiring talented individuals from Brazil’s widely diversified labor force and offering them challenging work opportunities and training to allow them to become the best in their fields.

We are committed to responsible and ethical mining practices. Environmental and corporate responsibilities belong to our core values and count amongst our highest priorities. We select our partners with a view to building mutually attractive opportunities and encourage principles that substantially benefit both the community and the economy.


Our vision

We strongly believe the sustainability of any business or resource is inherently related to good governance and to the benefits that can be offered to the environment, the community and the general economy. The creation of long-term shareholder value is integrally linked with the synergies embodied in our values. These principles are therefore incorporated into our investment strategy from the outset.

The alignment of our commercial objectives with the interests of the local community is achieved by setting clear goals:

  • To establish MSV as the leading Brazilian company in the exploration and development of economically feasible rare earth deposits;
  • To catalyze the development of a complete supply chain of rare earth products, emphasizing a source of rare earth supply outside of China;
  • To help strengthen Brazil’s position in technology transfer negotiations and improve the country’s ranking in the value chain of rare earth components and applications;
  • To help enhance the profile of Brazil as a destination for highly trained workers, thereby stimulating a vibrant culture for the development of the very best technological skills of its workforce; and
  • To boost Brazil’s appeal as a politically and economically stable supplier of rare earth products, attracting significant investments and highly qualified job opportunities in new high-tech companies.
