The Geology of Rare Earth Elements

Rare earth elements-bearing minerals, once separated, contain as many as 14 individual rare earth elements (lanthanides and yttrium) that must be further separated and refined. The complexity of extracting and refining rare earth elements is illustrated by a metallurgical flow sheet for the Mountain Pass mine in California (fig. 2).

Environmental Cost of Refineries

Some of the smaller rare earth smelting separation facilities do not have any kind of environmental protection at all. These are generally the small, illegal refineries and mines. [6] In China, saponification with ammonia is still used in rare earth refining, so a large amount of waste water is still produced.

Rare-earth element

The rare-earth elements, also called the rare-earth metals or (in context) rare-earth oxides, or the lanthanides (though yttrium and scandium are usually included as rare-earths) are a set of 17 nearly-indistinguishable lustrous silvery-white soft heavy metals. Scandium and yttrium are considered rare-earth elements because they tend to occur in the same ore deposits as the lanthanides and

Rare Earth Mining: The Dark Underside of Sustainability

Apr 20, 2021 Rare earth minerals are a highly valued commodity. China currently controls 80% of the world’s resources and refines most of the rare earth minerals mined in the world. This in and of itself is not an issue unless rare earth minerals become politicalized, which occasionally they do. In 2010 China restricted rare earth mineral shipments to Japan.

U.S. plans to refine its way out of potential “rare earths

Jun 02, 2019 The only rare earth metals-producing mine in the U.S. is facing short-term refining challenges as the nation looks to reduce its reliance on China for the materials due to the trade war. “We’re it,” James Litinsky, co-chairman of MP Materials, which owns the Mountain Pass mine, said Thursday on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “If we can’t

IONIC RARE EARTHS: DOWNSTREAM STUDY FOR MAKUUTU

The proposed Makuutu development project in Uganda could support one of the world’s few critical and heavy rare earths separation and refining facilities outside China after Australian-based explorer IonicRE launched a scoping study into a standalone downstream development.Ionic says the facility’s likely initial capacity of about 4,000tpa REO-equivalent feed to produce refined critical

Chart: Rare Earth Metals Production is No Longer

Mar 30, 2021 As a result, the U.S. share of production is growing again. While the mining of rare earth metals is diversifying, 80% of refining still occurs in China. With the demand for rare earths projected to double by 2030, building both mining and refining capacity overseas may prove key in reducing reliance on China. Tweet.
