Prospector News Podcast – “NioBay Metals Looks to Build the World’s Next Niobium Mine”





Michael Fox is Joined by Jean-Sébastien David the President and CEO of NioBay Metals (TSX-V:NBY) (OTCQB:NBYCF). We discuss the three company projects James Bay Niobium Project (ON), Crevier Niobium and Tantulum Project (QC) and the Foothills Phosphate Titanium Project (QC). We explain the significance of Niobium as both a reinforcer of steel (Ferro Niobium) and as a battery material (Niobium oxide). How the 2 types of Niobium differ and the significance of having a critical mass available to mine. We discuss the company’s place in the Quebec Gov’t plans for a “Battery Valley” and its role in the critical metals supply chain.


Finally we discuss the importance of the CEO being from the region and his hands on approach in the communities in which the company works.

About Niobium


Niobium is a naturally occurring element. It is a metal that is ductile, malleable and highly resistant to corrosion. Because it enhances properties and functionalities, niobium is used in a wide range of materials and applications in the Mobility, Structural and Energy sectors. Niobium transforms materials. When added to materials like steel, glass and aluminum castings, niobium makes them more efficient and lowers environmental impacts, while also delivering other benefits such as better performance, improved safety and increased value.
