Quantum Rare Earth Developments Corp. has added Tony Fulton, PE, to the company's advisory board.
Mr. Fulton is a former state senator in the state of Nebraska, having recently reached his term limit precluding a third-term re-election. A life-long resident from near the Elk Creek area, Mr. Fulton is a graduate of the University of Nebraska and a mechanical engineer by profession. Mr. Fulton was recently a key figure affecting the Keystone XL pipeline, another Nebraska project by a Canadian company, pushing forth with a positive business position accompanied with sound environmental considerations. Mr. Fulton commented, "Folks in southeast Nebraska have been talking about this project in Elk Creek for some time, and I enthusiastically offer my expertise and experience in bringing the project to fruition."
"We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Fulton to our team," stated Peter Dickie, president and chief executive officer of Quantum. "Having been an active supporter of the project while serving in office, we look forward to his continued support and assistance in a more direct fashion, at both the local and state level as we strive to develop our large and unique niobium deposit. With a local businessman of this calibre and experience involved, we aim to enhance our relationship with local and state residents, while providing the company with tremendous support as we continue to build the development team for Elk Creek."
