Email of the day - on rare earth metals

Many governments are looking at how they can reduce their countries' dependence on China for strategic items. One of these are the rare metals. How can we invest in rare metal miners outside China?

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this question which may be of interest to subscribers. The moniker “rare earth metal” is not exactly accurate because there are deposits of the metals spread all over the world. What is rare is a willingness to permit mining operations because they are so frequently located in close proximity to uranium and thorium. Additionally, the permitting of refining operations to separate the metals from radioactive materials is rate outside of China.
