FAME - Flexible and Mobile Economic Processing Technologies

On going
About
FAME is an active Research and Innovation project to develop economically viable, flexible and mobile combinations of technology to exploit European ore deposits that are often relatively small in tonnage terms.  This project specifically addresses three different primary ore types: skarn, greisen and pegmatite.  These ores carry significant potential for the extraction of Critical Raw Materials.  Although these ore types are complex mineralogically and have variable metal grades they are of great strategic significance in relation to the overall resource balance of the EU.
