Are You Investing
in Critical Minerals?

Fluorspar is a little known, but widely used critical mineral.  It's used in everything from steel production to lithium-ion batteries. In fact, fluorspar is vital to our modern lives. 

 

Despite growing US demand for fluorspar, did you know that every ounce used in our industries is currently imported, from countries like China and Mexico? We're changing that.

FREQUENTLY ASKED
What is Fluorspar?

Fluorspar is the commercial name for the naturally occurring mineral fluorite, composed of calcium and fluorine. Fluorspar is the predominant commercial source for the chemical element fluorine - a non-metallic element and the lightest of the halogens, therefore largely irreplaceable in its use. It has a huge list of applications, including steel production, refrigeration, cement, glass, and lithium-ion battery production. There are two principal commercial grades of fluorspar: metallurgical grade (60-96% CaF2) and acid grade (+97% CaF2). ARES is currently set up its operations to produce both grades of fluorspar.
