Nio Strategic Metals


The Oka project

Nio Strategic Metals was founded in 2006 thanks to the vision of some Québec entrepreneurs who decided to join forces to form a purchasing group for aftermarket parts.The name Nio Strategic Metals was chosen to reflect how Niobium was the founding members’ main motivation and its privilege to be located in Canada.


Niobium at the Oka Property is pure and highly concentrated.
