The interest in the rare earths industry remains high despite its difficulties and a crowded field of potential starters As companies in the rare earth business and CSIRO develop their understanding of processing rare earth ores Australia could become a world-class supplier of rare earth elements

Northeast Wyoming is home to one of the highest grade rare earths deposits in North America currently under development Rare earth elements (REE) are naturally occurring materials with unique properties that make them essential to new technologies

Extracting the truth about rare earths Actually rare earths are not particularly rare According to mining the least abundant rare earth elements – thulium and lutetium For too many years the process to recycle rare earths has been just as toxic as their original extraction and refining

What Are Rare Earth Metals? What Are They Used For?

Rare Earth Metal Mining You must successfully locate REMs in order to determine its viability as a source worth mining Unlike other metals often found in ore deposits and veins that can be economically mined earth elements are typically found in alkaline and igneous rocks and are not detected via metal detectors REMs like Europium Terbium and Yttrium can be found at the

A rare-earth element (REE) or rare-earth metal (REM) as defined by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry is one of a set of seventeen chemical elements in the periodic table specifically the fifteen lanthanides as well as scandium and yttrium Scandium and yttrium are considered rare-earth elements because they tend to occur in the same ore deposits as the

To ensure the safety of leaching process in the weathered crust elution-deposited rare earth ore it is of great importance to decrease the swelling of clay minerals in the rare earth ore for preventing landslides and other hazards Meanwhile it is also necessary to ensure the leaching efficiency of rare earth ores during industrial production

Vietnamese company Lai Chau-VIMICO Rare Earth Joint Stock Company and Japanese company Dong Pao Rare Earth Development Company entered into an agreement in 2012 to jointly mine and process rare earth resources in the Tam Duong district of northern Lai Chau province The first phase production of the mining project is expected to be 10 000t a year

Rare earth elements are also essential for the defense industry and are found in cruise missiles precision guided munitions radar systems and reactive armor They are also key to the emergence of green technology such as the new generation of wind powered turbines and plug-in hybrid vehicles as well as to oil refineries where they act as a

"Rare earth elements occur in ores in very small concentrations a few thousand parts per million Extensive processes of mining grinding extraction and purification are needed to transform the ores to very high purity (approximately 99 9 percent minimum) rare earth metals required for commercial applications " she said

You can refine anywhere - in mission areas in space it doesn't matter - as long as you have ore in your cargo hold So you could have a ship with a large cargo hold full of ore and go complete a ground mission while all that ore is being refined Mining perks enhance refining so the process is more efficient


Thor ORE's proprietary nano-extraction technology extracts elements at the atomic level plus we extract them all in one process Our process produces highly-valuable marketable and useable materials while also returning the earth or water to a environmentally-friendly condition

mineral ore the toxicity of the contaminants from the waste rock ore stockpiles and process waste streams The mobility of contaminants will be controlled by the characteristics of the geologic hydrologic and hydrogeologic environments where the mine is located along with the characteristics of the mining process and waste handling methods

Usually rare earth elements are being extracted and manufactured in a conventional and proven process In most cases a rare earth deposit is being exploited by traditional mining After mining the ore is then crushed and the rare earth elements get extracted by a conventional leaching process

Rare earth ore mining and concentration are performed using a complex (and often economically unrealistic) method that includes REE mining from ore deposits grinding cracking the minerals to produce mixed rare earth oxides (REO) concentrates separation purification of oxides and refining to produce industrial grade REEs

Geology and Mining Rare earth elements occur in many minerals but typically in concentrations too low to be refined in an economical manner the concentration of REEs in the Earth's crust is estimated to be between 150 to 220 parts per million which is higher than the concentration of other metals mined for industrial use such as Cu or Zn

Rare earth elements (REEs) are a group of 15 elements referred to as the lanthanide series in the periodic table of elements Scandium and yttrium while not true REEs are also included in this categorization because they exhibit similar properties to the lanthanides and are always found in the same ore bodies
