Defense Metals (DEFN.V) continues to de-risk its high-grade REE deposit in mining-friendly B.C. PLUS a Q & A with CEO Craig Taylor

Rare Earth Elements (REEs) are a major driver in the green-ride (EV) revolution. Electric motors, generators, catalytic converters, component sensors, LCD screens… REEs can even be found in the powder used to polish the windshields and mirrors.
