Need for Better Fuel Efficiency, Driver Engagement, and Lighter Weight Drive Rapid Growth

Dual Clutch Transmission Technology: Need for Better Fuel Efficiency, Driver Engagement, and Lighter Weight Drive Rapid Growth

Technology optimisation for higher efficiency will strengthen OEM growth opportunities, finds Frost & Sullivan’s Mobility team

LONDON – 20 July 2017 – With significant transmission, energy, and fuel efficiency, and smooth delivery of power, lighter weight, and driver engagement, dual clutch transmission (DCT) technology is set for strong, sustained growth. Growth is augmented by progressively stringent emission standards, strong need for better fuel efficiency and shift experience in B and C car segments, and the use of DCTs as a transmission strategy in plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).

Ucore Advances Alberta Oil Sands Concentrate

July 26, 2017 – HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA – Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSXV:UCU) (OTCQX:UURAF) (“Ucore” or the “Company”) is pleased to report on the advancement of its joint venture for the recovery of high value metals from Alberta oil sands process tailings.

In 2016, Ucore announced that it has partnered with a Major Alberta Oil Sands Producer (“MOSP”). The MOSP has developed a commercial process for the production of a metals-enriched concentrate from Alberta oil sands (the “Bitumen Metals Extraction” or “BMX” process). The BMX process produces a concentrate highly enriched in titanium, rare earth elements (“REE”), vanadium and a host of other valuable specialty metals from oil sands bitumen froth. Further in 2016, the MOSP selected Molecular Recognition Technology (“MRT”) as the preferred development platform to accept output from the BMX process, and to separate high purity metals suitable for industrial transport and sale (see Ucore Press Release dated July 18, 2016).

In 2017, Ucore announced that it had successfully produced three classes of Pregnant Leach Solution (“PLS”) from the BMX concentrate (see Ucore Press Release dated June 26, 2017). The PLS production process utilizes a customized leach procedure to render Hydrochloric PLS, Nitric PLS and Sulphuric PLS (the “Bentzen Process”). Each of the three laboratory samples generated by the Bentzen Process are now being subjected to a series of factorial designed studies to select an optimized PLS to be progressed to pilot scale testing with MRT.

Ucore now reports that the three samples have been subjected to initial testing at the Activation Labs facility in Ancaster, Ontario facility (“Act Labs”):
