by Dr. Allen Alper, PhD Economic Geology and Petrology, Columbia University, NYC, USA

ioneer Ltd (ASX: INR)
is the 100% owner of the Rhyolite Ridge, Lithium-Boron Project, located in Nevada, USA, the only known lithium-boron deposit in North America and one of only two known such deposits in the world.
