Ucore Rare Metals Inc.'s Bokan deposit in Southeast Alaska is a potential domestic source of the entire suite of rare earth elements, along with six other minerals that have been deemed critical to the United States.

According to a calculation completed in 2019, the Dotson Ridge deposit at Bokan hosts 4.79 million metric tons of indicated resource averaging 0.6% (31,722 metric tons) rare earth oxides, 460 parts per million (2,205 metric tons) niobium; 1,880 ppm (9,001 metric tons) zirconium; 48 ppm (231 metric tons) beryllium; 37 ppm (178 metric tons) hafnium; 0.37% (17,715 metric tons) titanium dioxide; and 97 ppm (464 metric tons) vanadium.

Bokan, however, will likely not be the first Ucore initiative to produce rare earths in Alaska. This is because the company first plans to build a commercial-scale rare earths separation facility at Ketchikan, a port town about 35 miles from Bokan.
