Rhyolite Ridge Q2 Newsletter - May 2024

The publication of the Rhyolite Ridge Project Draft EIS in April, 2024 represented a significant step towards the Project receiving a Record of Decision from the BLM, currently projected to be issued in 2024.

Rhyolite Ridge Q2 Newsletter - May 2023

Over the last quarter there have been several positive developments here at Ioneer and the Rhyolite Ridge Project.

We were pleased to host a grand opening of the Tiehm’s Buckwheat Conservation Center on May 3 – a culmination of many years of work from our environmental team. And earlier this month we were proud to announce a partnership with Reno-based Dragonfly Energy, resulting in Nevada sourced lithium being used for Nevada manufactured batteries.

Rhyolite Ridge Q1 Newsletter - February 2023

The past few months have been an eventful and exciting time for the development of the Rhyolite Ridge Project. In December the Bureau of Land Management announced its Notice of Intent (NOI) to draft an Environmental Impact Statement commencing the final stage of the federal permitting process.

We also announced a conditional commitment from the Department of Energy Loan Programs Office, and have completed construction of a greenhouse dedicated to conservation and research of Tiehm’s buckwheat.

In this edition of the newsletter we discuss all of the above and more.
