Projects

  • Mineral Resources in New Mexico

  • Critical minerals in New Mexico

    • Rare earth elements (REE) resources in New Mexico

    • Significance of this project: Although NM does not have any economic deposits of REE at this time, the REE deposits in NM are geologically and mineralogically interesting
