Email of the day on rare earth metals

I have just read that in Arctic Sweden they have just discovered Europe's largest source of rare earths. It will take 10 to 15 years to bring them to market. 

Eoin Treacy's view

Thank you for this note. I saw that news too. Here is a related article discussed the discovery. 

 The thing to remember about rare earth minerals is they are not particularly rare. The reason China dominates the mining and processing of these metals is because they are so often found in close proximity to radioactive elements. Processing is both dirty and creates harmful byproducts so many countries were only too happy for China to take over production.
