About us

NioBay Metals (TSXV: NBY; OTCQB: NBYCF), previously known as MDN, is a Canadian mineral exploration company that was founded in the 1950s by hockey legend Serge Savard’s father, Laurent Savard, in Quebec’s Abitibi region. Today, NioBay’s management team offers a diversified set of expertise in Critical and Strategic Minerals with an emphasis on Niobium.

NioBay plans to capitalize on a variety of projects, in both Quebec and in Ontario, while conducting Research & Development through partnerships with several universities.


A Critical and Strategic Mineral

NioBay is focused on the development of green critical minerals such as niobium, which is used primarily in the steel industry and fortifies high-strength-low-alloy steels. It also improves steel’s malleability, flexibility, and toughness. It can contribute to the construction of electric vehicles, lowering carbon emissions worldwide.
