The “Strategic Investor” has proposed to provide equity funding at project level towards the development of Montero’s Wigu Hill Rare Earth Element mine and refinery.”
 

About Montero Mining & Exploration

 

Montero Mining and Exploration Ltd. is a mineral exploration and development company focused on achieving production of rare earths primarily from its flagship Wigu Hill project in Tanzania.

Montero has a highly experienced Board and Management team that has built and operated mines and refineries in Africa, which brings significant credibility to our strategy of becoming a rare earth producer. In addition to rare earths, Montero has phosphate assets in South Africa and uranium assets in Tanzania and Quebec, Canada for sale or joint venture.
