Hastings Rare Metals has found grades of heavy rare earths significantly higher than the defined resource at Hastings in Western Australia from extensional drilling. The average for the defined JORC resource is 1,800 ppm HREO while from current drilling grades range from 1,935 ppm to 2,300 ppm. Intersection lengths are comparable to those in the defined resource.

Dysprosium oxide grades are 10-35 per cent higher than the defined JORC resource. Niobium oxide values are up to 40 per cent higher than the defined JORC resource.

Two of China major rare earth miners reported sharp falls in profits in 2014, in the face of poor demand and weak prices. Major producer, REHT reported on Friday 5.84 billion yuan, or 949 million U.S. dollars, in operating revenue in 2014, down 31.1 per cent from 2013. Net profits plummeted by 57.4 per cent to 643 million yuan, according to the company annual report. On the same day, China Minmetals Rare Earth Co. posted a 64.8 per cent drop in operating revenue to 702 million yuan and its balance sheet turned from black to red with 55.8 million yuan in net losses.

Terbium and dysprosium are two heavy rare earths that are critical for our latest defense technologies and all of this supply currently comes from China. This lack of a secure source is putting our national security and our latest technologies at risk for a supply shortfall.

Heavy rare earth prices have started bouncing higher for these minerals since late November. Increasing tensions with China and The West over natural gas in the South China Seas could continue to support higher heavy rare earth prices.

Frik Els reports that in order to crack down on illegal mining, pollution and modernize their mostly low-tech industry, China consolidated its rare earth industry under six large organizations in 2014. By far the leading rare earth producer, is China North Rare Earth Group Co (formerly Inner Mongolia Baotou Steel Rare-Earth (Group) Hi-Tech Co).

Representing 34% of REE consumption in volume terms, a solid cerium price means other more valuable, but less abundant rare earths can also be mined profitably. The CNRE giant mine in Bayan Obo, Inner Mongolia near Baotou City, produces more ... More →

Jack Lifton reports that Deng Xiaoping put China on its modern trajectory by inverting the path chosen by his well known predecessor, Mao Zedong. Deng chose to advance the trek towards communism by adopting a form of capitalism, but, as he said, one with Chinese characteristics. From that time, the early 1980s until today (Summer 2015) capitalism advanced in China almost entirely without a stock market. At least not with one open to the retail (general public) investors and traders. Many pundits see Capitalism with Chinese characteristics becoming indistinguishable over time from American free...

Charlotte McLeod presents a collection of articles from Critical Metals Investing News looking at the companies shaping the investment opportunity. The 17 elements that make up the group of rare earth metals are as diverse in their applications as they are challenging to pronounce. They are often broken up into two categories according to their atomic weight on the periodic table ... light and heavy rare earths.

Some of the common light rare earths are of less value than heavies on the market, yet are in higher demand. While the heavies are of high value many of the elements have sm... More →

Japanese surveyors have announced the discovery of high concentrations of rare earth metals under the sea bed around their easternmost island, Minami-Torishima or Marcus Island, reports China Times. The small island is located nearly 2,000 kilometers southeast of Tokyo. The Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology and the University of Tokyo found the concentration of the minerals is ten times higher than present in the reserves in China, which is by far the largest supplier of the rare earth materials used in the production of hi-tech electronics as well as advanced medical techno...

A lot has changed since then but there is still a lot of noise and mixed messages and fund raising has become a real fight for survival in a very challenging market.

However, in its latest mineral commodity summary for the abundant group of 17 elements composed of scandium, yttrium, and the lanthanides, the USGS noted that increased domestic output of separated rare-earth products was hampered by technical difficulties in the ramp up of new production capacity.

Rick Wallace reports that a rare earth metals expert has rated the survival of Australian producer, Lynas, as a 50-50 proposition, warning that although the company was now well managed, low prices for its output mean it was vulnerable to being taken over by a Japanese or Korean company.
