CENTENNIAL, Colo., July 31, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Governor Pete Ricketts (R-NE) has nominated the Elk Creek Superalloy Project as a "High Priority Infrastructure Project" in response to the White House's January 24, 2017 Executive Order entitled "Expediting Environmental Reviews and Approvals For High Priority Infrastructure Projects."  In this letter to the Administration, Governor Ricketts made these points:

"Key to the success of a national infrastructure re-building is utilizing as many American-made materials as possible - particularly the high strength steels that form the backbone of America's transportation, manufacturing, and defense infrastructures.  The Elk Creek Superalloy Project can help the U.S. produce American-made "super steels" for infrastructure projects across all 50 states.  The Project will establish the first-ever production in America of niobium, a metal that helps to make High Performance Steel (HPS).  These super steels are increasingly used in highway bridges and in virtually all mega-steel infrastructure projects in order to reduce corrosion, lengthen lifespans, cut costs, and reduce environmental impacts. American-made HPS steel can help highway bridges last in excess of a century.  That will reduce taxpayer costs and strengthen safety... We need niobium, Mr. President, yet we don't mine a single pound of it in the U.S. today.  Nebraska wants to change that, and as rapidly as possible."

On Behalf of the Board of Directors,

"Mark Smith"

Executive Chairman, CEO, and Director
