Molycorp LaDidy


Another part of Project Phoenix…

at the Mountain Pass Mine in California. The scope of this project included the construction of a new lanthanum and didymium (LaDidy) production facility. Originally intended to be two separate facilities, they were combined in an effort to reduce costs and increase efficiency. 

The LaDidy facility included a new 3.5 MW service, six motor control centers, a PLC, and nine remote input/output cabinets. The construction was completed without impacting production at the mine. This was a fast track project and GSL was able to get the lanthanum train online within 53 business days of accepting the contract.
