I'm Mario Ritter with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Today we continue our report on the group of chemical elements known as rare earth metals. These are mined from the earth and used to make technology from mobile phones to missiles. The United States once led the world in rare earths. Today China controls almost all production. Premier Wen Jiabao says China will not use these metals as a diplomatic weapon. But Japan says exports meant for that country have remained at Chinese ports as a result of a recent dispute. The United States stopped mining rare earths in two thousand two. Companies blamed environmental rules and low-priced imports from China. But now exploration is moving forward again. Edward Cowle is president and chief executive of a company called U.S. Rare Earths. He and his partners gained rights to some land in the American West about fifteen years ago. They had been interested in thorium -- a radioactive element that can fuel nuclear reactors but not be processed into weapons. Mr. Cowle later found that the land also held a lot of rare earth metals -- lately a subject of intense interest. The company has not started mining yet. It still has to get permits and work with other businesses to put operations in place. Ed Cowle says a lot of work remains. He says the earliest that they could open the mine would be in six to seven years. Another American company is Molycorp. Jim Sims, the public affairs director, says Molycorp has already begun producing three thousand tons of rare earths a year. That makes the United States the world's second largest producer, a distant second. Mr. Sims says Molycorp is the western hemisphere's only producer of rare earth products. The company says the largest reserves of rare earths outside of China are in its mine in Mountain Pass, California, and in the Mount Weld area of Australia. Jim Sims says Molycorp spends only about ten percent on mining. The big cost is in chemically separating the rare earths from the minerals that carry them. He says Molycorp raised about three hundred eighty million dollars when it sold stock to the public for the first time in July. The company aims to increase production to twenty thousand tons by two thousand twelve. It says that would more than meet current levels of demand in the United States.

"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.

Martin Eales, chief executive of Rainbow Rare Earths LTD (LON:RBW), tells Proactive Investors they sold 350 tonnes of concentrate in the three months to the end of June 2018 - up significantly from the 125 tonnes sold in the previous quarter - as the ramp-up to full production continues at the company's mine in Burundi. Gakara is one of the highest grade rare earth element mining projects globally, with an estimated in-situ grade of 47-67% Total Rare Earth Oxide (TREO). Eales adds they're now looking to commence operations at their second mining area - Murambi - in the fourth quarter of this year to help them reach the targeted production run rate of around 5,000tpa or 400tpm by the end of 2018.

일본 EEZ 해저 발견 희토류 매장량, 세계 수요 수백년분 Countries around the world are heavily dependent on China for rare earth minerals... that are used in various high-tech products. But all that may change.. as Japan reportedly found hundreds of years' worth of these rare elements in its waters. Hong Yoo explains further. Japanese researchers have found more than 16 million tons of rare earth deposits …under the seabed near the island of Minami-Torishima, …some 18-hundred kilometers from the country's mainland. Rare earths include dozens of minerals used in high-tech products, from smart phones to electric vehicles. According to the study released on Tuesday in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers collected samples of the elements in 25 locations on the seabed …across a 25-hundred square-kilometer area. The analysis found 730 years' worth of dysprosium, used for the magnets in hybrid cars, and 780 years' worth of yttrium, used in the manufacture of lasers, based on estimated demand. The discovery of the deposits could help ease the world's dependence on China, …which accounts for nearly 90 percent of all rare earths production. Beijing's dominant position has resulted in price spikes and shortages in the past. The researchers say they have also come up with the technology to allow the resources to be extracted efficiently. The method can boost the density of rare earth minerals to 20 times that of the deposits in mainland China. The researchers plan to work with private companies to recover the rare earth minerals.

The cost of many rare earth elements has defied analysts' predictions with steep price increases since the beginning of the month. For instance in the last week, the price of dysprosium has risen from around $700 per kilogram up to $1,470. Bloomberg's Jason Scott also reported on June 16th that the price of europium "has risen to as much as $3,400 a kilogram from between $1,260 and $1,300 [per kilogram]." Numerous changes to Chinese mining and trade policies are being attributed to price rise. The changes revolve around the consolidation of rare earth producers in China. Chinese officials have stated their plans to consolidate the industry in an attempt reduce pollution, as well as illegal smuggling of the metals attributed to small artisanal mining firms.

Good news! We're on the precipice of the next great gold rush... but it won't be in the hills of California. Or anywhere on this planet. It'll be in outer space, as there are untapped rare materials in asteroids that could be used for future technologies. That's right: there's gold in them thar skies! Theoretical physicist and one of our favorite Big Thinkers, Dr. Michio Kaku, explains to us that while China might have a stranglehold on the rare minerals and metals on our planet, there's no stopping interplanetary mining. We've even got an actual plan with actual economics already in place... we just have to wait until NASA's SLS rocket technology fully develops. Michio Kaku's latest book is the awesome The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/michio-kaku-asteroid-mining-will-happen-sooner-than-you-think Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript: When I was researching my book The Future of Humanity I came across a comment made by Thomas Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson made the biggest gamble of his life buying the Louisiana Purchase from Napoleon. Napoleon was fighting the British he needed hard cash immediately. He had Louisiana and that whole middle portion of the United States and so Napoleon sold it to Thomas Jefferson for a song. But Thomas Jefferson thought how long would it take to investigate what he had just purchased? He had doubled the size of the USA. Think about that. And he probably violated the Constitution in the process. Everyone forgets that. Everyone glosses over that fact, but hey when Louis and Clark went into the territories that comprised the Louisiana Purchase they found tremendous prospects for wealth and prosperity, but Thomas Jefferson wrote that it may take a thousand years, a thousand years before they could then begin to settle the west. Well, how long did it take? A few decades because what happened? Gold. Gold was discovered in California sparking the gold rush and within just a few years millions of prospectors, settlers, fortune hunters converged on California. It didn’t take a thousand years to develop that. Then the question now is is there going to be a new gold rush in outer space? Some people think so. Some Google billionaires have created an organization, a company, Planetary Resources, that are looking into prospecting in the asteroid belt. Now, asteroids come in all shapes and sizes and we’re cataloging them now and we have already found some perspective asteroids that could be mined. One asteroid perhaps maybe 30/50 feet across brought back down either to the moon or to the planet earth could in fact yield billions of dollars in rewards because of the rare earths and the platinum type medals that you find inside. You see, the electronics industry is dependent upon rare earths. Where are these rare earth elements found it? Mainly in China. They’re everywhere, of course, but China has the most developed market and the Chinese in turn supply on the order of 90 percent of the rare earths. Well, a few years ago they decided to capitalize that and raise the price. All of a sudden shockwaves, shockwaves spread around the earth because people realized that oh my God China has a stranglehold, a stranglehold on high technology. How can you build the next iPhone if you don’t have the rare earths to make the transistors and to make the delicate components of these high tech devices? So I think what’s happening here is that some people see an area for profit and that is asteroid mining. Now of course, the infrastructure for that doesn’t exist, but NASA has looked at its budget and does have a program that has been shelved temporarily to redirect an asteroid. The Asteroid Redirect Program is to send of the SL ass booster rocket into outer space with the Orion capsule. It will then intercept an asteroid and bring it back to orbit around the moon. Then it can be mined as it orbits around the moon or as it’s brought back to planet earth. And so this is now beyond the phase of science fiction. We’re no longer talking about dreaming about an asteroid redirect, we’re talking about an actual plan with the economics, with the details laid out. However, at the present time we have to wait for NASA’s SLS rocket to mature to the point where we can intercept an asteroid.

Growing up in a coal mining industry in Wales, Gren Thomas started working underground when he was 16 years old. At 25 he moved to Canada to work in geology, drilling, and then exploration. His daughter has followed in her fathers footsteps growing up in the mining business and training as a geologist. His first discovery was a large rare earth deposit containing large amounts of tantalum and beryllium later picked up by Avalon Minerals. Gren also shares the story of his part of the discovery of diamonds in Canada which has led to a billion dollar business. Westhaven Ventures was started by Gren and his son and is now a successful gold explorer. During the Fraser river gold rush in the 1850s the source of the gold was never found. In 2005 the first drill hole since that time in the area ran 12 meters of 20 g/t gold. Westhaven now has 30,000 hectares in this area The mining business has been hard to finance but this project is extremely promising. The mining industry need a big new discovery to really set off a bull market, a new gold rush. Westhaven Ventures could well be the company to make that discovery and is way under-priced at present

Although it is a precious mineral resource, rare earth imposes great dangers of pollution. Recently, French media reported from Baotou. Entitled "In China, rare earths are killing villages", the report highlighted massive environmental pollution. It revealed the impact of the production of rare earth minerals on local residents, animals and land. The following is our report. French media 'Le Monde' reported from Baotou, stating that by aerial viewpoint, it looks like a large lake, fed by numerous tributaries. On site, it is actually an opaque discharge covering an area of 10 km2. Surrounding the industrial plants producing 17 minerals are reject waste waters loaded with chemicals. There are no fish or algae The Le Monde article introduced that rock from Bayan obo rare earth ore mine, located 120 kilometers away, are sent here for treatment. The concentration of rare earth in the rocks is very low and must be separated and purified by hydrometallurgical processes and acid baths. In the effluent basin are exist all sorts of toxic chemicals and radioactive elements such as thorium. Ingestion of these toxins causes cancer of the pancreas, lung and blood. A pungent odor exudes within radius of 10 miles. Local villagers have been suffering from cancer. Rows of brown houses in the village have been reduced to rubble. Sichuan environmentalist Chen Yunfei indicates that rare earth refining process causes great environmental pollution and destruction. People are unaware of the specific dangers of this project, and the specialists involved in the decision-making. Chen Yunfei: "Some officials only work on the image projects for profit. They relocate once the money has been made. Some officials collude with the business, caring about nothing but profit, leaving the mess for the public." According to local residents, Baotou used to be a vast grassland. In 1958 the state enterprise Baotou Iron and Steel Company began producing rare earth production. By the end of 1980, locals found that the plant was in trouble. Last year, China Environment News reported that Baotou Iron and Steel Group's tailing dam leakage has caused damage to five surrounding villages. It has affected more than 3000 farmers, and ruined more than 3,295 Acres of farmland. Ma Peng, former Director of the Baotou Rare Earth Research Institute, indicated that due to the lack of a barrier below the tailing dam, the mining waste is directly discharging into the Yellow River. The discharge is at a rate of 300m per year. The residents also said that further pollution has been caused by other industries and thermal power plants. These industries followed rare earth production by the Baotou Iron and Steel Company. Local residents have to breathe air saturated with sulfuric acid and coal dust. Coal dust is airbourne around the houses. Cows, horses, chickens and goats are being killed by these poisons. The locals have fled, and Xinguang Sancun village has now decreased from 2000 villagers to 300. Every family is hit with illness. After 20 years of complaints to the local government, the villagers have finally won promises of financial compensation. These have only been partially fulfilled. Miss Hao, a resident of Baotou: "We all know. The government is too dark. No one cares about the people, whether they live or die, not to mention the pollution." For many years, there have been calls for attention for the issue of Baotou tailing dam discharging thorium radiation to Baotou and into the Yellow River. The hazards and pollution caused by the Baotou tailing dam have never been effectively alleviated. Environmentalist Chen Yunfei: "This is an investment that has hurt several generations. It has polluted the whole environment. This high cost investment ought to be condemned. Our future generations are going to suffer for it." China Environment News indicated that Baotou is located in the stratum fracture zone. In the event of a major earthquake or large-scale rainfall, the rupture of the tailing dam will threaten the surrounding five villages, as well as tens of thousands of lives of the Baotou Iron and Steel workers. If the tailings flow into the Yellow River, it will cause serious pollution to the river. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

Thorium policy in all western nations undermines the successful development of a domestic rare earth market. All of the rare earths that most western mining companies are willing to process are what they call bastnasites or carbonatites. They select these rare earths not because of the high ratios of rare earths but simply the absence of thorium. Manufacturers using rare earth elements in their products are relocating their manufacturing base inside China. The jobs in manufacturing transfer from the United States and western Europe into the Chinese mainland. This impacts consumer electronics, green technologies & military technology.

A Malaysian group representing villagers and civil groups will file a legal challenge to the government's decision to approve a massive rare earths plant by Lynas, the Australian mining company . The Atomic Energy Licensing Board announced late on Wednesday it would grant Lynas a license to operate the first rare earths plant outside China in years, despite public protests over fears of radioactive pollution. It said Lynas must submit plans for a permanent disposal facility within 10 months and make a $50mn financial guarantee. Malaysia hopes the Lynas plant will spur growth. But the project has been the subject of heated protests over health and environmental risks posed by potential leaks of radioactive waste. Florence Looi reports from the eastern Malaysian city of Kuantan.

Alkane Resources Ltd (ASX:ALK) managing director Nic Earner speaks to Proactive Investors about the junior exploration and mining company's multi-commodity portfolio of NSW projects; which includes the cash-generating Tomingley Gold Mine, the construction-ready Dubbo Project, and regional exploration. A recent review of the Dubbo Project forecast pre-tax net present value (NPV) at between $909 million and $1.297 billion, depending on the development route. The company is looking for offtake agreements and finance partners now to kick start production. Earner says, "we have secured the land on which it's based so that's wholly-owned by us... we have approvals to build this mine, environmental, state and federal; we have the engineering completed... we've been running the pilot plant at ANSTO, the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation, for over a decade... then we turned that into a set of financials." The open-cut life of the Tomingley Gold Mine will conclude in the coming months, and so an underground project manager has been brought on board to assess the potential for an underground mining operation, with a final investment decision due at the end of this calendar year.

On 2012-03-13 President Obama announced filing a new WTO filing against China's REE export quotas. China successfully leverages their REE monopoly to capture high-tech manufacturing jobs, and is part of the reason companies like Apple construct consumer products in China... REEs are found in all manner of phones, GPS, wind turbines, solar panels, hybrid cars and military hardware. REE are NOT rare. REE used to be produced in USA. If REEs are so important, why aren't they produced in USA today? THORIUM REGULATION. Jim Kennedy & John Kutch explain: Thorium is NOT dangerous.

June 1, 2016 -- Professor Dudley J. Kingsnorth of Curtin Graduate School of Business and Executive Director of Industrial Minerals Company of Australia Pty Ltd was a presenter at the 5th Annual Cleantech and Technology Metals Summit held in Toronto. In his presentation, Dudley Kingsnorth provided a wide-ranging and concerning view of the rare earths sector. He is alarmed that China, through illegal mining and exporting, is squandering the best rare earths resources in the world and that, at some stage, the country will cease exporting these elements — and the rest of the world needs to prepare for that eventuality. His presentation covered: ◾The spectacular growth of the rare earth industry over the past 50 years, an achievement matched by few other metal commodities. ◾The challenge that Lynas Corp has faced with falling rare earth prices and finding trained staff. ◾How the low price and surplus of cerium may see its uses expand. ◾A forecast for future and growth rates in rare earths demand. ◾How China is progressing with its downstream rare earth expansion. ◾China's agenda for the future. ◾Why the rest of the world had to play its part in helping China stamp out illegal production, and the need for an international standard for rare earths which would deter illegal miners.

Matamec Explorations Inc. is a junior mining exploration company whose main focus is in developing the Kipawa HREE deposit with TRECan. In parallel, the Company is exploring more than 35 km of strike length in the Kipawa Alkalic Complex for rare earths-yttrium-zirconium-niobium-tantalum mineralization on its Zeus property. Since 2007, Matamec discovered eight (8) new rare earth showings. Particularly, it drilled the PB-PS Zone in the fall of 2012 and identified Eudialyte-Mosandrite/Yttro-Titanite/Britholite mineralization similar to those found at the HREE Kipawa Deposit. This type of mineralization is presently known over a length of 200 metres and is open laterally and at depth. This mineralized zone is 2.3 km SW of the Kipawa deposit and a soil anomaly seems to connect the two. The Company plans to drill these extensions later this year. The Company is also exploring for gold, base metals and platinum group metals. Its gold portfolio includes the Matheson JV property located along strike and in close proximity to the Hoyle Pond Mine in the prolific gold mining camp of Timmins, Ontario. In Quebec, the Company is exploring for lithium and tantalum on its Tansim property and for precious and base metals on its Valmont and Vulcain properties. Matamec signed in August 2013 an option agreement where Canada Strategic Metals can acquire an interest of up to 50% in the Sakami gold project, located in the James Bay region of northern Quebec by committing $2.25 million in exploration work including $500,000 in the first year of drilling - assays will be upcoming soon.

"We have a project that is State and Federal approved, mining lease is granted, we own all the farmland underneath, mines approved, so we can start developing today. This project, with finance, can be executed right now." States Nic Earner, Managing Director of Alkane Resources Ltd. (ASX: ALK | OTCQX: ANLKY), in an interview with InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky. Tracy Weslosky: What is happening with the rare earths market right now? Nic Earner: It is really interesting time for the market. If you go out and listen to people, they will say that we know that Lynas which supplies about 20-25% of the worlds battery materials, China has a lock on this stuff…So what you have is, the rise of a producer, Lynas, and a whole series of other projects including ourselves as one of the most advanced projects that can produce rare earths waiting for a news to say, I am going to act now to secure my supply chain. So, its quite a dynamic time and particularly as you can imagine with the Trump administration and who is doing what in trade tariffs people are really watching closely, waiting for a signal that things are starting to break. Tracy Weslosky: Those of you out there that look at issues like sustainability and geopolitical factors, this is the kind of company to be watching. Can you give us kind of an overview on what’s happening right now with the Dubbo Project? Nic Earner: Our project is amongst if not the most advanced non-developed project in the world. We have a project that is State and Federal approved, mining lease is granted, we own all the farmland underneath, mines approved, so we can start developing today. This project, with finance, can be executed right now. So we are in a constant and continuous push on marketing, looking for off-takes, co-investors, etc…For us we have a ready to execute project and we are really pushing to get a critical step taken. Tracy Weslosky: Correct me if I am wrong, that outside of China, when you get this financing in place, you will be one of the largest producers of these rare earths outside of China. Is that correct? Nic Earner: Absolutely. At the moment outside of China of any substantial nature we have Lynas Corp. digging up at the Mt Weld and shipping to Malaysia. They are the sole supply outside of China. Almost two-third of their product goes into Japan, the rest goes to China. So that’s correct we would be. Tracy Weslosky: We are very hot for niobium which you also have. Nic Earner: We do. Like a lot of polymetallic projects, ours in particular has rare earth elements, zirconium, niobium and hafnium. About 20% of our revenue would come from niobium. At that site we are fully engineered to make ferroniobium product that we could ship into the US, Asian or European marketplace...to access the complete interview, click here Disclaimer: Alkane Resources Ltd. is an advertorial member of InvestorIntel Corp.

Subscribe to our channel http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe Activists have launched a court case against Australian mining firm Lynas in Kuantan, on the east coast of Malaysia. The Australian company has decided to operate a rare earth refining plant there, but residents in the area are worried about the impact of radiation from the waste created by the refining process. Production has been delayed at the plant, which can potentially meet up to 20 per cent of global demand for the minerals - used to make high-tech gadgets like smartphones. Local community and activists say the plant, tipped to be the world's biggest rare earth processing facility, will generate radioactive waste. The company says the raw material and residue have low levels of radiation, and that it will recycle some of the waste into fertiliser. Al Jazeera's Florence Looi reports from Gebeng.
