Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This study with a comprehensive literature review will address key knowledge gaps concerning sedimentary CRE resources to support the strategic and sustainable development of CREs in Canada. The main objectives are (1) evaluate the CRE content of those resources; (2) choose the most promising resources for CRE extraction in collaboration with federal government research institutes, industry, and provincial jurisdictions. The first part of this report presented the major studies on coal and coal combustion REE resources, their origin, mode of occurrence, and economic evaluation of those resources. In the second part of the report, the major Canadian Phanerozoic organic-rich shales and siliciclastic rock's REE content based on available datasets in the Geological Survey of Canada presented in order to identify the most promising REE sedimentary resources. The best siliciclastic sedimentary units and most promising intervals will be examined for resource evaluation and identification of origin, mode of occurrence, and development of best extraction methodologies to expand the REE production of potential Canadian resources.
