The company’s land consolidation strategy has rapidly grown its landholdings by 419% from its initial 2,100-acre position in September 2020.

Hyperion Metals has increased its land position at the Titan Critical Minerals Project by 78% in west Tennessee, USA by 4,794 acres to 10,905 acres, enabling further growth in the resource.

Since September 2020, Hyperion (ASX:HYM) has grown its landholding by 419% from its initial 2,100 acre position.

These new landholdings include mineral rights contiguous to the recently reported mineral resource estimate at the Titan Project of 431mt at 2.2% THM, which established the project as the largest titanium, zircon, and rare earth minerals project in the US.

Hyperion has also acquired land positions over greenfield locations up to 80km from the Titan Project, with planned exploration work on these properties to help guide future land consolidation.

‘Compelling combination of scale and grade’

HYM managing director and CEO Anastasios Arima said Titan has a “compelling combination of scale, grade, high value critical mineral products, low-cost inputs, world class infrastructure and location” and looks forward to rapidly advancing the critical mineral project.

“We are also highly appreciative of the deep support we have received from the local west Tennessee community that will help us to establish zero carbon, sustainable, critical material supply chains for advanced American industries,” he said.

The company says its landholdings benefit from significant cost advantages due to the location and proximity to low cost, world-class infrastructure. That’s expected to provide material cost and logistics advantages compared to projects located in more remote areas.

These factors have contributed to a huge amount of recent investment in Tennessee, highlighting the region as a leading jurisdiction for business, including by major auto manufacturers Ford and Volkswagen, world leading battery producers LG Chem and SK Innovation, as well as major chemical organisations and end users including Chemours.
