Krakatoa Resources Limited (KTA) are committed to the acquisition and value addition of mineral and energy projects with a focus on technology ingredient elements.
Krakatoa’s mission is to emerge into a prominent electrical energy and technology metals company. Krakatoa is confident of significantly increasing shareholder value by aggressively sourcing and acquiring projects containing elements crucial to the creation, storage and transportation of electrical energy as well as technology hardware component constituents such as Tantalum and REEs.
With an emphasis on high value Critical Raw Materials, Krakatoa is committed to acquiring and value adding to technology element projects
In line with our focus on electrical creation and storage elements, Krakatoa continues to search for and acquire potentially economic nickel projects.
Nickel is used in many specific and recognizable industrial and consumer products, including stainless steel, alnico magnets, coinage, rechargeable batteries, microphone capsules, plating on plumbing fixtures and special alloys such as permalloy, elinvar, and invar. It is widely used in many other alloys, including nickel brasses and bronzes and alloys with copper, chromium, aluminium, lead, cobalt, silver, and gold (Inconel, Incoloy, Monel, Nimonic).
The recent demand for lithium-ion batteries through exponential recent growth in the renewable energy storage, hybrid vehicles and electric bike industries has resulted in profound increases in the pricing of lithium.
A rare-earth element (REE) or rare-earth metal (REM), is one of a set of seventeen chemical elements in the periodic table, specifically the fifteen lanthanides, as well as scandium and yttrium. Despite their name, many rare-earth elements are more abundant than copper.
Some important uses of rare-earth elements are applicable to the production of high-performance magnets, catalysts, alloys, glasses, and electronics. Rare-earth elements are used in the electric motors of hybrid vehicles, wind turbines, hard disc drives, portable electronics, microphones, speakers. They are also used in the production of fuel cells, Nickel-metal hydride batteries, as well as LCD and plasma screens, fiber optics, lasers, as well as in medical imaging. Additional uses for earth elements are as tracers in medical applications, fertilizers, and in water treatment.
Tantalum is a critical component in the manufacture of electrical equipment components including capacitators and high powered resistors. In addition tantalum is used to produce a variety of metal alloys that have high melting points, strength and ductility. These alloys are utilised in making carbide tools for metal working equipment and the production of superalloys for jet engine components, chemical process equipment, nuclear reactors and defence technology.
According to the Cobalt Development Institute, 94% of global cobalt supplies come from nickel and copper mines that produce cobalt as a minor by-product. Only 6% of global cobalt supplies come from primary cobalt mines that might be able to increase production in response to growing demand from the battery industry.
Krakatoa is actively pursuing potentially economic tin projects anywhere in the world.
Rio Tinto recently sponsored research by Boston’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), which found that demand for tin is expected to increase the most of all materials for future production of new technologies, followed by nickel and cobalt.
