"The only operating rare earth mine in the United States sends all of their valuable resources to China for processing. Congress does not know this. They think this [mining] company is supplying the U.S. value chain, [and] is supplying the military. It is in-fact, the opposite. They are part of the Chinese monopoly. They're taking powder and shipping it to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy To address this issue, contact your legislators to support H.R.4883 https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 Why can't Molycorp, Lynas or any other 'western' rare earth company succeed? China's production and market advantage in Rare Earth Elements (REE) is largely the result of NRC and IAEA "Source Material" regulations with unintended consequences. Source Material: Materials containing any ratio or combination of Thorium and Uranium above .05%. Producing or holding these materials within the regulatory threshold (.05%) requires extensive and wide-ranging licensing, storage, transportation, remediation disposal and compliance costs, including prohibitive liability and bonding issues. Consequently any potential supplier of byproduct / co-product rare earth resources that would be designated as "source material' disposes of these valuable resources to avoid liability and compliance issues. NRC / IAEA regulations regarding "Source Material" played a key roll in undermining the economic viability of all 'western' rare earth producers and are a critical factor in China's current 'market advantage'. Producers like Molycorp and Lynas, with low Thorium deposits, can never compete with China. Resources are abundant and available: U.S mining companies currently mine as much as 50% of global Rare Earth Elements demand every year. But these resources are diverted in tailings lakes or are redistributed back into the host ore body, due to NRC and IAEA regulations defining Monazite and other Thorium bearing rare earth resources as "Source Material". H.R. 4883 would solve the "Thorium Problem" by creating a federally chartered multinational Thorium Energy and Industrial Products Corporation ("Thorium Bank"). Privately funded and operated, this would decouple thorium from rare earth production. The Thorium Corporation would also have Congressional Authority to develop Thorium energy systems and industrial products. Environmental regulations are not scaled back... rather this enables thorium to be stored safely & securely, rather then being treated as "waste". https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 H.R. 4883 thus also addresses the U.S. Weapons Systems current 100% Dependency on China for Rare Earths. http://thoriumenergyalliance.com/downloads/TEAC6/USWeaponsChinese.pdf Federal Legislation governing Strategic Materials, 10 USC 2533b, does not specify rare earths, but includes metal alloys containing limited amounts of manganese, silicon, copper, or aluminum, chromium, cobalt, columbium, molybdenum, nickel, titanium, tungsten, vanadium, nickel and iron-nickel, cobalt, Titanium and Zirconium alloys. Federal Regulations require that these materials be melted in the U.S. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. The bill does NOT reclassify thorium. It does NOT alter current environmental protection. It simply resolves "The Thorium Problem" which cripples United States domestic rare earth mining, processing and value-adding processes.

Gold is valuable but jade is priceless, so goes a Chinese saying. For centuries, the Chinese consider jade an imperial stone with mystical properties. Today it is coveted all over China as a status symbol, a collectible and an investment. Demand from increasingly wealthy Chinese drives the value of jade through the roof. At this year's Shanghai World Jewellery Expo, auctioneers put the opening bid for top grade jade items at more than $160 a gram, exceeding four times the price of gold. Intricately designed pieces, made from top grade jade known as jadeite, are viewed as attractive investments despite the lack of scientific valuation methods. In recent years, jadeite has provided better returns than real estate. But the imperial stone delivers a death sentence to treasure hunters in Myanmar, where China's jadeite comes from. Most of Myanmar's raw jade enters a murky black market. Its official revenue from jade exports over from 2011 to 2014 was $1.3bn. But Harvard University's Ash Center estimates total jade sales - including through unofficial channels - were $8bn in 2011 alone, suggesting most of the revenue does not go into government coffers. The Myanmar government will not speak to us on camera. But our investigations reveal a corrupt senior government official who works with businessmen in the illegal trade of raw jade, including helping to falsify tax documents. In northern Kachin state, we follow jade smugglers to the remote Hpakant mining town, the source of the world's best jade. The men are part of the government's border guard force. The officer in charge tells us how he pays off army and police commanders along the smuggling trail to China. Hpakant is out of bounds to foreigners and no foreign journalists have been known to make it there for years. Large mining companies suspended operations here in 2012 after the Kachin Independence Army and the Myanmar government went to war the preceding year, ending a 17-year ceasefire. With peace talks stalling, most companies have yet to resume excavation. Despite the tension, tens of thousands of small time jade pickers have flooded Hpakant to sift through mine tailings, risking life and limb to toil in harsh conditions, hoping to strike jackpot. Some work alone, others in groups supported by businessmen. Their findings often go straight into the black market, forming the unregulated bedrock of the industry today. A dark force fuels their labour. Jade picker Aik San estimates 75 percent of the miners have become drug addicts. They get their daily dose of heroin or yama - a type of methamphetamine - from drug dens around town. It numbs them from their backbreaking labour and helps them work longer hours in the harsh weather. With hidden cameras, we obtain shocking footage from the drug dens, revealing the scale of drug abuse that infests the underbelly of the jade trade. We also find a drug rehabilitation centre in Kachin state with more than 50 recovering addicts from the mining town. One of them, Aung Kyaw Moe, painfully shares how his employer paid him and fellow workers with heroin to get them hooked so they would work harder for their next dose. As the hammer goes down in major Chinese cities for more glitzy jade items auctioned off at record levels, wealthy collectors celebrate yet another treasure possessed. It offers stark contrast to the wretched lives of mine pickers at the bottom of the supply chain, in a land far away. 101 East investigates the jade smuggling trail and uncovers the human cost of the imperial stone.

Anders Levermann and Sven Willner from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research on their new paper. Intensifying river floods could lead to regional production losses worldwide caused by global warming. This might not only hamper local economies around the globe – the effects might also propagate through the global network of trade and supply chains, a study now published in Nature Climate Change shows. It is the first to assess this effect for flooding on a global scale, using a newly developed dynamic economic model. It finds that economic flood damages in China, which could, without further adaption, increase by 80 percent within the next 20 years, might also affect EU and US industries. The US economy might be specifically vulnerable due to its unbalanced trade relation with China. Contrary to US president Trump’s current tariff sanctions, the study suggests that building stronger and thus more balanced trade relations might be a useful strategy to mitigate economic losses caused by intensifying weather extremes.

https://www.udemy.com/blockchain-for-business-the-new-industrial-revolution/?couponCode=YOUTUBE Bitcoin and cryptocurrency mining explained with the the Byzantine Generals Problem. The Byzantine Generals problem was first introduced in a computer science paper published in 1982. The problem discussed in the paper is that reliable computer systems must be able to function effectively in the presence of faulty components that may send conflicting information to different parts of the system. This issue is even more acute when we talk about decentralized computer networks. Imagine the following thought experiment: The Byzantine army has surrounded an enemy city. The army is organized into several units. Each unit is commanded by a general and they all need to come up with a coordinated plan of action. However, they are located away from each other and the only means to communicate among themselves is via messages. To make things more complicated, one or more of the generals are possibly traitors. The presence of disloyal generals means that misleading messages could be sent aiming to disrupt any coordinated plan of action, be it attack or retreat. To find a successful solution to this conundrum, the Byzantine army needs to find its path to coordinated action, one way or another. To achieve this, the Byzantine army needs an algorithm that works effectively towards a coordinated outcome where the loyal generals follow it and the traitors don’t. Now that you are familiar with the problem, let’s see its solution. It is called the Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm. Over the years, there have been several proposed theoretical solutions involving game theory and math. The first practical implementation of Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm came with the Bitcoin’s Proof-of-Work. In this case the “generals” are nodes on the Bitcoin network, also known as “miners”. A network node is a connection point that can receive, create, store and send data across a network. In other words, nodes are the connected dots that make up a network. To simplify, think of it in the following way. In the image we traditionally use to depict a blockchain, every single computer is a separate node. They are all connected and can receive, create, store, and send data to each other. In the context of the Byzantine Fault Tolerance algorithm, the important concept to grasp is that these mining nodes start from the assumption that nobody else on the network can be trusted. Proof-of-Work secures network consensus even in the presence of non-compliant nodes. That is, even if there are some Byzantine generals who are not acting in the army’s best interest, coordinated action can still be achieved. Let’s see how this mechanism works in Bitcoin. As we all know by now, Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer network where all activities are done by its users through appropriate software and hardware. These activities include making transactions, receiving transactions, and verifying and transmitting transactions. Now, this is where we need to introduce the concept of “mining”, which many of you have probably heard. Mining is an activity, carried out by network participants, which involves Proof-of-Work and results in generating new coins as a reward for the miner who successfully did this Proof-of-Work first for each new block.

Powerful magnets are necessary for an iPhone to vibrate or a Tesla Model 3's motor to spin. If you combine neodymium with iron and boron, you can make a neodymium-iron-boron magnet, which is the most powerful type of permanent magnet ever created. And demand for these magnets is on the rise. But 80 percent of the world's neodymium comes from China. You may not have heard of neodymium, but you're probably carrying some of it around with you right now. It's in your cellphone, your headphones and you might be driving several pounds of it around in your car. Neodymium — pronounced "nee-oh-DIM-ee-um" — is one of 17 chemically similar elements called rare earth elements, and demand for this metal is on the rise. "Neodymium is responsible for most, if not all, of the growth in rare earth demand at the moment," said Roderick Eggert, deputy director of the Critical Materials Institute at Colorado School of Mines. For an iPhone to vibrate, for AirPods to play music, for wind turbines to generate power and for a Toyota Prius or Tesla Model 3's motor to spin, they need powerful magnets. If you combine neodymium with iron and boron, you can make a neodymium-iron-boron magnet, which is the most powerful type of permanent magnet ever created. In the case of your cellphone and earbuds, using neodymium magnets means they can be physically tiny but still strong. For motors, using permanent magnets means powerful, efficient motors with fewer electromagnetic components. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC About CNBC: From 'Wall Street' to 'Main Street' to award winning original documentaries and Reality TV series, CNBC has you covered.

Check out these 10 countries with the largest gold reserves in the world! This top 10 list features some of the richest and wealthiest countries on earth that have tons of gold bars stacked up somewhere! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "SURPRISING And Interesting Facts About Money!" video here: https://youtu.be/ONpChSPqVc4 Watch our "Most AMAZING Discoveries With A Metal Detector!" video here: https://youtu.be/45JveYKafVo Watch our "Most EXPENSIVE Diamonds In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/RcZATf3Lmb0 10.) India According to the World Gold Council, the Bank of India currently holds 557.7 tons of gold. It is one of the largest stores of gold in the world! This makes up 9.9 % of the country’s total foreign reserve. Foreign exchange reserves is money or other assets held by a nation’s central bank so they can back the national currency. India, home to 1.25 billion people, is the number one largest consumer of the precious metal. Furthermore, India is one of the most reliable drivers of global demand. For example, India’s festival and wedding season, which runs from October to December, has historically been a major market for gold. And probably, one of the most interesting facts about India and gold is that India rarely invests much in gold. This is because as a country, India operates under the belief that buying gold leads to a deficit. And their belief must be proving right as things also seem to be improving for India. For instance, if you look at the last few years, India has increased its gold reserves from 557.74 to 557.77. While this might not seem like a lot, India is also at its highest point in history! In addition to what the country holds, Indian households which are considered the world’s largest hoarders of gold, hold a record 23,000-24,000 tons, which is worth about $800 billion. 9.) Netherlands In the past few years, the Netherlands has held 52% of its foreign reserve in gold. The Netherlands has a reported 612.45 tons. In 2016 it was reported that the bank was looking for a place to store all its gold because they were going to renovate the vaults and needed to moving it. The Dutch central bank is planning to move the country’s gold reserves from the center of Amsterdam to a new complex called the Cash Center. Like most countries, Dutch gold is also held in banks around the world to reduce risk. Security measures to guard the gold 24/7 have become a problem in Amsterdam. 189,000 kilos of gold will be moved at the beginning of 2022. Maybe this is one reason that over the last decade and a half, the Netherlands was selling off tons of gold in order to reduce its reserve. However, there weren’t that many buyers out there and they sold less than the country wanted. More recently the country has had less ambition to sell gold. Currently, the country holds the same amount of tons, 612.45 that they have over the last few years. However, the country has increased its percentage of foreign reserves to 61.2 %. 8.) Japan Japan is another country which had been increasing its gold reserves since the 1960’s. Their official gold holdings were reported at 765.2 tons. About 2.4% of Japan’s gold today is in foreign reserve. Historically, Japan has always held a bit more gold than other countries. This was true until 2011, when they began to sell some of their reserve in order to pump money into the economy after the tsunami and the following Fukushima nuclear disaster. But even with selling, Japan’s central bank has been one of the most aggressive practitioners of quantitative easing. For example, in January of 2016, it lowered interest rates below zero, which has helped fuel demand in gold around the world. 7.) Switzerland Prior to 1997, Switzerland was steadily building its gold reserves. In 1997, the decision was made to sell some of those reserves to bolster the Swiss currency and diversify the foreign reserves. The percent of foreign reserves in Switzerland is currently 6.7 %. Switzerland actually has the world’s largest reserves of gold per capita and currently has reported 1,040 tons. Over time, many citizens in the country started to feel like the bank was getting rid of too much gold. They then banded together with the “Save the Swiss” movement. However, once everyone was able to vote in 2014, the vote came to a no, and gold continued to be sold. During World War II, Switzerland became the center of the gold trade in Europe, making transactions with both the Allies and Axis powers. Today, much of its gold trading is done with Hong Kong and China. Around last year, the Swiss National Bank made a $5.9 billion profit, reportedly from its gold holdings.

Forty years of opening up have greatly reshaped China’s foreign trade. Last year, China's overall foreign trade volume topped four trillion US dollars – almost 50 times more than 40 years ago. China has also become the number one trader globally, with imports and exports accounting for about 10 percent of world’s total – up from less than one percent in 1978. The country continues to be the world’s largest exporter and second largest importer since 2009. It also climbed up the global trade value chain from a low-end processor to a supplier of technologies and business models.

Mining group Anglo American has retained De Beers as a prize asset after a radical overhaul. The firm is banking on prospects that a surging Chinese and Indian demand for diamonds, will outstrip dwindling supply even after a 2015 crunch. The group, in which Anglo American has an 85 percent stake, has seen its market share fall from over 80 percent in the 1980s to about a third now, losing it control of supply and unleashing price volatility. Synthetic diamonds and uncertain demand from customers in the "millennial" generation, are increasing pressure on the business. Anglo has cut the value of De Beers assets in its books each year since 2012, after it had paid $5.1 billion for a 40 percent stake. But it remains the largest diamond producer by value ahead of Russia's Alrosa, securing access to top mines through close ties to countries such as Namibia, with which signed a 10-year sales deal this week, and Botswana. This is the basis of Anglo American's case for retaining De Beers in a drastic overhaul.

한-브루나이 정상회담, 신남방정책과 비전2035 상생번영의 협력 강화키로 The leaders of Korea and Brunei have agreed to take their partnership to another level,... signing a deal on Monday after their bilateral summit in Brunei's capital. From construction to patents,... their promise of bilateral cooperation is seen as a move that will help build the president's New Southern Policy. Shin Se-min reports from Brunei. Different methods,... but a similar purpose. President Moon Jae-in and the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, have promised to step up substantive bilateral cooperation and achieve synergy in the pursuit of their countries' respective policies -- Korea's New Southern Policy and Brunei's Vision 2035. Acknowledging that both policies focus on improving people's lives,... the leaders Moon and Bolkiah agreed to come up with measures that are reciprocal and complementary. "By integrating our administration's New Southern Policy, focused on creating a community of people-centered peace and prosperity, with Brunei's Vision 2035, I hope to expand our bilateral ties into future technology and new fields of industry and to achieve mutual prosperity." Korea's New Southern Policy aims to diversify its diplomacy, adding to its traditional trade partners, the U.S. and China. And Brunei's Vision 2035 hopes to drive up foreign investment and contribute towards the country's long-term economic growth and social development. On economic cooperation,... the leaders decided to do more in the infrastructure and energy sectors. That includes building a value chain in liquified natural gas... spanning from gas mine development... to shipping and sales. The leaders agreed to promote bilateral cooperation in areas of intellectual property, science and technology,… and to expand their joint search for new growth engines. On a more social level,… the leaders have agreed to add more direct flights to boost people-to-people exchanges. And the leader of Brunei says the timing could not be better. "Not only are we marking 35 years of diplomatic ties, in terms of Korea-ASEAN relations, Brunei is the coordinator between the two parties." With Brunei to help with the hosting of a special South Korea-ASEAN summit in Seoul this year,... something that will help establish future relations between the two sides,... the leaders agreed to consult closely going forward. Speaking on the president's push for peace on the Korean Peninsula,... the South Korean leader stressed the importance of all 10 ASEAN member nations in helping North Korea give up its nuclear ambitions,... through their own diplomatic relations with Pyeongyang. And the Sultan of Brunei, a window for dialogue between Korea and ASEAN did express his support in establishing permanent peace on the Korean Peninsula.

April 20, 2016 – In a special interview, InvestorIntel speaks with technology metals advisor Jack Lifton, about his insights on Ucore’s SuperLig®-One rare earth separation pilot plant and its implications for the future of tech metals processing. Jack explains how SuperLig® technology make Ucore “the company to beat” in the non-Chinese tech metals refining space. Jack also touches on the broad capabilities of the technology to separate not only the rare earth elements (REE’s), but cleantech metals such as lithium, cobalt, tungsten, and many more. He qualifies the scale of the opportunity as global: “I’m sure that it won’t be very long before there are these types of plants operated by your company around the world. Where the feed stock is, quite frankly, available in – from India, southeast Asia, Africa, South America and North America and Australia. In other words, the entire world.” Excerpt from interview with Jack Lifton: “This pilot plan puts the U.S. and the rest of the Chinese world back on the scoreboard because what we have here is for the first time a new, much more efficient, more economic system of producing very high purity technology materials, metals and materials. And the reason the Chinese have dominated this field for so long is because they have the entire supply chain. And so we can, quite frankly, dig all the holes we want. It doesn’t do any good because we can’t process material. What this brings back to the market, American, domestic, whatever you want to call it, is the ability to be competitive. And so companies here, for example, that don’t want to make products with technology metals and materials because the only source is foreign and typically China and they can’t get them except at the behest of the Chinese, now they have an option. They have an alternative. And I guarantee you this is going to create a great deal of investment in high tech because high tech is based on technology, metals and materials and that’s what you’re going to be producing. At the moment there is no other place in the world outside of China that is capable of producing heavy rare earth metals in high purity form or midrange metals for that matter, rare earths. So you’re adding value to the entire technology world outside of China. We’re never going to be competitive unless people like you bring businesses like this into existence…to access the complete interview, click here Disclaimer: Ucore is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel.

It was an historic day at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Tuesday as Cyril Ramaphosa became SA’s first democratic president to address the 25th annual Investing in African Mining Indaba. Attended by thousands of mining industry leaders, ministers, senior government representatives, community members, investors and media hams, the Mining Indaba is the continent's largest mining investment conference, and on Monday, it opened trading on the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The conference aims to support Africa’s sustainable economic development while providing attendees with a value chain and four-day high quality content, deal-making and networking opportunities. A stir of glittering eyes and sharp ears in the crowd on the main stage on Tuesday afternoon focused carefully when president Ramaphosa moved to allay investor jitters in the mining industry. Ramaphosa charged that the expropriation of land without compensation would not involve taking away investors’ land. “We must emphasise that our approach will enhance, rather than undermine, property rights as we seek to address what we have termed the original sin which was committed against black South Africans during colonial and apartheid days. “The measure we are proposing will apply to land for the purposes of land reform only, and within a clearly defined set of circumstances. “This measure will be undertaken in a way that promotes economic development and agricultural output, and that does not undermine the principles of our Constitution or the rule of law. Investors need not fear that their investments and assets will be taken away from them,” said Ramaphosa. Ramaphosa said that the government was working on a clear plan to address problems that had bombarded power utility, Eskom. He mentioned ten key principles for shared value in the mining industry that he believes will benefit the mining industry, the society, the government and the economy. He said the principles will increase women and youth employment, education and training in the mining sector, investment opportunities, infrastructure, beneficiation, health and safety of workers, small business opportunities, inclusive growth and conducive collaboration between workers and shareholding companies. “We need to use this platform provided by Mining Indaba to strengthen our collaborative efforts aimed at regional integration, as government plays its role in creating an environment in which mining thrives for the benefit of all its people,” said Ramaphosa. On Monday, Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe said the mining charter guidelines had been gazetted and the Mineral and Petroleum Resources Development Amendment Bill had been withdrawn to separate oil and gas from mining legislation. Mantashe added that a draft upstream Petroleum (oil and gas) Bill was in the process of being developed. On Tuesday, Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies said the South African government has prioritised investment and mineral beneficiation due to its capacity to grow the economy and create jobs. President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, reflected on the need for collaboration to create shared and inclusive value for all stakeholders. “Mining is a necessity, not just an indulgence. We must strike deals that are fair to both sides. Negotiations between companies and governments should be transparent, and accessible and easily understandable by citizens. “We know that the extractive sector can be the champion of economic growth on the continent – it has great potential for job creation and can form the basis for transformation. In Ghana, we hope to establish an equitable balance between our needs and the needs of the investor community, it is time for the mineral sector to produce a win-win situation for all stakeholders.” According to Brand South Africa, SA’s mining sector contributed 7.3% to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) last year, as compared to the 6.8% of 2017. Thus, the sector grew by 1.2%. - Brought to you by LobzMarele
