Helium is the only element on the planet that is a completely nonrenewable resource.
On Earth, helium is generated deep underground through the natural radioactive decay of elements such as uranium and thorium. "It takes many, many millennia to make the helium that's here on the Earth," says Sophia Hayes, a chemist at Washington University in St. Louis. The helium seeps up through the Earth's crust and gets trapped in pockets of natural gas, where it can be extracted.
Like hydrogen, its immediate predecessor on the periodic table, helium is lightweight. But unlike hydrogen, it doesn't readily combine with other elements. So, once helium reaches the surface, it can easily escape the Earth's gravitational pull.
Other resources, such as oil and gas, may turn into pollution or be difficult to recycle. But only helium physically disappears from the planet. "It's the one element out of the entire periodic table that escapes the Earth and goes out into outer space," Hayes says.
America once thought helium would turn the tide of war.
During World War I, aviation was still in its infancy, and dirigibles were considered cutting-edge weapons of war. German zeppelins were the strategic weapons of their time, drifting over civilian targets and dropping bombs from their gondolas.
But zeppelins had a critical vulnerability: They were filled with highly flammable hydrogen. After a few zeppelin raids over London, British troops developed incendiary bullets that would "light up the hydrogen in the dirigibles," says David Aubin, a professor for the history of science at Sorbonne Université in Paris.

All indications suggest MKA could be trading at 200p within 18 months....and i ain't selling. I have already derisked, so it's a long hold for me tucked away in my ISA.

Alexander Lemon, President of Mkango stated:
“The Biden administration has an ambitious agenda for a clean energy revolution which will begin with the recently announced $2tn Infrastructure bill aimed at clean energy initiatives and is expected to result in increased U.S. stockpiling of rare earths. The United States intends to achieve a carbon free power sector by 2035 and a net zero economy by 2050.
“Reaching these goals will require significant quantities of rare earths. Mkango’s Songwe Hill Rare Earths project in Malawi, plans for a separation plant and interest in UK rare earth magnet recycler, HyProMag, means it is well placed to play a strategic role in supplying the US critical minerals supply chain as well as other key markets.
“We are, therefore, delighted to appoint Jones Group International as our United States strategy advisor, significantly enhancing Mkango’s positioning in the US market. This appointment further underpins our integrated ‘Mine Refine Recycle’ strategy and we very much look forward to working with Jones Group International.”
General James Jones, President of Jones Group International stated:
“I look forward to our partnership with Mkango Resources. Rare earths are the source of elements and metals essential to the advanced technologies of today and tomorrow, including those that will drive forward clean energy and enhance the prospects of significantly reduced carbon emissions that are so damaging to our environment.
“Mkango’s Songwe Hill Rare Earths project in Malawi, its plans for a rare-earths separation plant and related projects portend to expand and reinforce the supply chain of critical elements essential to the economic and national security wellbeing of the transatlantic community. I and my colleagues at JGI are eager to bring a US dimension to this strategic undertaking.”
Billyboy....0.0019 id the next target. Yet even at that price as you will know, we are still massively down. Imo any price below 0.003p will be a bargain in the weeks to come. Great tecovery plsy at these levels.....

Long term sufferers in Icon from the days when we were Widecells will be rewarded as investors can sense a 'new beginning' for this recovery stock. I have slowly been adding as i feel this is going to be one ofvthose situations where ongoing positive news will multibag Icon many times over in the coming months.
Cheap as chips with 34.4 million shares...and all from fag money.
Got some good dough in a few potential big winners, so confident that i can hold on to Icon ie HE1 MKA and UFO...all up a lot from my entry points. My favourite is Helium1..check it out.
According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…
What does Helium One do?
Helium One is an AIM-listed company engaged in helium exploration. Helium is a colourless, odourless, non-toxic gas that’s used in a wide range of applications. The company’s aim is to become a producer of high-grade helium for the international market.
HE1 holds around 4,500 square kilometres of exploration licences in provinces in Tanzania. It holds 100% of these licences and has exclusive rights to develop the assets.
At its current share price, Helium One has a market capitalisation of around £130m. This means it’s a very small (micro-cap) company.
The helium market is growing
It’s worth noting that the market for helium is growing at a rapid rate. In 2019, the global market was worth around $10.6bn. However, by 2023, it’s expected to be worth around $15.7bn.
In terms of its applications, helium is used for leak detection, in MRI scans, in rocket propulsion systems, in semiconductor manufacturing, and, of course, in party balloons.
Why are UK investors buying HE1 shares?
As for why investors are excited about Helium One shares, is due to the fact that the company is shortly about to start a three-well drilling programme at its Rukwa project in south-west Tanzania.
Recently, the group advised it had commenced mobilisation of a drilling rig and ancillary equipment to a forward holding yard about 100km away from the project area. It added that mobilisation is progressing on time to allow the company to achieve its target spudding date of mid-May.
It’s also worth pointing out the company’s recently listed in the US on the OTCQB Venture Market, under the ticker HLOGF. The group says the US has a “significant interest” in helium as a commodity. And it hopes the visibility it gains from this listing will increase shareholder demand.
Sorry about typos....i'm f.....g livid!
Parry should come clean and tell us for sure whst he intends to do for share holders. Instead he keeps us guessing and wasting our time for years. I think that is his intention so that we all disappear without him doing sweet FA....nice innit and no legal redress for us?
Imagine buying a plot of land and then being told there was no land for sale in the first place. You could take them to court no problem. That is how this loadabollix feels....legalised theft.
