Rare Earth Elements


AXIOM GROUP boasts a team of diverse geoscientists with combined 100+ years of geological and geophysical experience. Our geoscientists are equipped with the latest industry knowledge, tools, and technology which provides our clients with reliable and accurate data.

AXIOM’s Exploration division has multi-jurisdictional experience managing on-going lithium projects across Eastern Canada. Our staff are specialized in the field of rare-element pegmatite exploration and development and are well-positioned to tackle lithium exploration programs as the global demand for critical minerals associated with these deposits continuous to increase.

To date, AXIOM has worked in multiple Canadian provinces and numerous pegmatite fields. We have exposure to various rare-element pegmatite types and multiple commodities such as LCT-enriched (Lithium- Cesium-Tantalum), and NYF-enriched (Niobium-Yttrium- Fluorine) that are associated with rare earth elements Uranium, and Thorium.

AXIOM is actively managing numerous projects at various stages of development ranging from historic data compilation and project generation to grassroots exploration projects, and multi-stage drill programs consisting of historic resource verification and delineation.

AXIOM’s Geophysics and Remote Sensing division has completed multiple Airborne Magnetics (e.g., helicopter-borne and UAV), high-resolution LiDAR, and satellite surveys consisting of acquisition, processing, and analysis (for satellite surveys this includes analysis
of synthetic aperture radar data and multispectral Sentinel & Aster data with accompanying structural interpretation and target generation.

Axiom’s team has proven experience designing, operating, managing, and optimizing lithium projects at various stages. Axiom is excited by the rapidly growing critical metals industry and is looking forward to working with companies as a trusted advisor offering innovation and quality technical services.

REE-Specific Service Offerings
  • 3-in-1 Geophysical Helicopter-borne surveys
    Helicopter-borne surveys such as Gradient Aeromagnetic/Radiometrics/LiDAR/TDEM/Gravity assist in identifying regional structural trends, localized controls on geochemical systems, delineate rheological contacts.
  • Groundwater modelling:
    Hydrogeological modelling of groundwater to assist with vectoring economic resources.
  • Geoscience Modeling 2D and 3D
    Rare Earth Elements present a complex problem with Light – Medium – Heavy element associations unique to specific lithologies, structures and geochemical systems. The knowledge and expertise to identify these relationships are integral to identifying, evaluating, and discovering the next REE deposit.
  • Hyperspectral Satellite Analysis:
    Satellite data acquisition and analysis including but not limited to: Multispectral and Hyperspectral – Aperture Radar, Sentinel, Aster). Axiom has a large spectral mineral library and proprietary processing algorithms that have proven to be a valuable macro vectoring tool. We can also combine our analysis with AI, ML, and DL to create analogues of proximal/known successes and search for those features on the property of interest.
