China Rare Earths Exports Drop 15.9% In May

Scrap Register reported that rare earth exports by China, the world's dominant producer, fell 15.9% in May from a month earlier amid an increased focus on the raw materials due to the China-US trade war. According to preliminary data published by China's General Administration of Customs, China's rare earth exports fell to 3,640 tonnes in May from 4,329 tonnes a month earlier.

It said that cumulative exports of rare earth during the first five months of 2019 totaled 19,265.8 tonnes, down 7.24% as compared to 20,769.8 tonnes in the corresponding period last year.

Australian Rare Earth Miners Push Development Deals To Counter China Grip

Reuters reported that Rare earth developers in Australia say they are edging closer to signing deals with new customers that would drive forward their projects amid mounting global supply concerns over the minerals that are crucial to high-tech industries. Australia contains only 2.8% of the world's rare earth reserves, according to the United States Geological Survey. However, the country accounts for more than half of the new projects in the global pipeline, according to data compiled by the Western Australian School of Mines at Curtin University.

Most of Australia's projects, however, have been stuck as developers struggle to secure financing because of the domination of China, which accounts for about 90% of global rare earths processing capacity and one-quarter of the world's reserves.

Even the projects closest to start-up are unlikely to begin operations until 2023 at the earliest, the WASM data shows.

Still, those projects may speed up amid the escalating trade war between the United States and China. The United States imports 80% of its rare earths from China, where state-owned news outlets have reported it could cut its shipments to the US as part of the dispute.

Northern Minerals, which is developing the Browns Range project in Australia's northwest, said last week that it was in "discussions with an internationally recognised industrial group" for supply.

A company spokesman said this week that "The level of interest has increased since the increased news focus on the issue.”

Hastings Technology, which is readying its Yangibana rare earths project in Western Australia for late 2021 production already has one preliminary supply agreement with Germany's Thyssenkrupp and signed another with automotive supplier Schaeffler AG last week.

Mr Charles Lew, Hastings' executive chairman said that "We are working on another German supply agreement which we expect to tie up this year.”

A Thyssenkrupp spokesman said last week that "in the area of rare earths we are regularly on the lookout for new partners to serve the growing global demand."

The reason rare earths projects outside of China have not advanced is because China's vast production, underpinned by cheaper labour and less stringent environmental regulations, means no one else can compete on cost, said WASM Professor Dudley Kingsnorth.

Australia's Lynas Corp, the world's only rare earths producer outside of China, has been supported by low interest loans from Japan's government. Last month Lynas outlined expansion plans including building a U.S. processing plant.

China To Roll Out Rare Earth Policies Soon

SMM reported that China is developing rare earth-related policies, and will roll out the policies "as soon as possible", according to Ms Meng Wei, spokeswoman for the National Development and Reform Commission at a press conference in Beijing on June 17. Ms Meng added that this is expected to improve the role of rare earth as strategic resources amid an ongoing dispute with the US over trade and tech. The government resolutely opposes any attempt to use products made with China's exported rare earths to hurt the country's development.

The comments further fueled market confidence in the rare earth sector after a slew of positive signals from central authorities since May.

ISR Capital signs MOU with Chinese firm for Madagascar project

Business Times reported that ISR Capital has entered into a non-binding memorandum of understanding with China Nonferrous Metal Industry’s Foreign Engineering and Construction Co to commence negotiations on potential developments for its 75% owned rare earth mining concession located in north-western Madagascar, Africa. The MOU sets out the framework for discussion, including the purchase by NFC of up to 3,000 tonnes of the Madagascar project’s output within the first three years of successfully commissioning production facilities. This is subject to the products meeting the quality requirements for the Chinese market, which will be determined by an independent surveyor.

Under the MOU, NFC will also provide engineering procurement and construction services, and potentially invest in the project. The MOU will expire two years from its commencement date.

NFC is a Chinese state-controlled company listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, specialising in the fields of nonferrous metal industries and projects worldwide.

Trump Trade War - China Rare Earths Association Supports Actions against US

SMM reported that China's rare earths association would resolutely support the actions taken by the Chinese government to counter US tariffs. This came after the re-escalation of the trade tensions between Washington and Beijing, triggered by US President Donald Trump’s announcement last week that tariffs of 10% would be imposed on another USD 300 billion worth of Chinese goods.

The Association of China Rare Earth Industry expressed “firm opposition” to US tariff threats in the statement after a special working meeting on Monday August 5 to discuss the guidance given by Chinese President Xi Jinping during a visit to a rare earth plant in Jiangxi in May.

Mr Xi's visit stoked fears that China may use rare earths as a weapon in the trade war with the US, given its dominance over the production of such materials, which are used in everything from consumer electronics to military equipment.

Brazil Minerals Announces Rare Earths Areas Comprising in Brazil

Brazil Minerals Inc announced that it now has rare earths areas comprising three mineral rights totaling 12,528 acres in Brazil. Two mineral rights are in the state of Goias and one mineral right is in the state of Tocantins. Brazil is one of only very few countries where rare earths are known to occur in concentrations allowing economic recovery. Mr Areli Nogueira, geological engineer of the project, stated, “This is a highly promising situation for Brazil Minerals. Of particular importance is the fact that we have strong indications that our Rare Earths Project contains the more sought-after heavy rare earths elements which are less commonly found.”

The term “rare earths” denotes a group of seventeen minerals which are needed in small amounts but essential in several high-technology applications including electric vehicles and military hardware. “Heavy” rare earths are a sub-group of these elements which include Gadolinium and Yttrium, among others. Brazil Minerals’ rare earths project claims and areas nearby have had prior studies performed by researchers from both the Brazilian Geological Service and a private university.

Australian Lynas Gets Permission to Dispose of Radioactive Waste in Malaysia

ABC reported that an Australian mining company has been told to "get lost" and "go back to Australia" amid an ongoing row over hundreds of thousands of tonnes of radioactive waste piling up in Malaysia. Outside of China, the Australian firm, Lynas, is the world's only major producer of rare earth minerals, which are crucial in the production of high-tech gear including smartphones, laser-guided missiles and electric car batteries. The ore is dug up at Mount Weld in Western Australia and then shipped to Malaysia, where the cost of processing is significantly lower. The low-level radioactive waste is a by-product of the enrichment process and Malaysian activists are convinced it poses a threat to local communities.

At a recent protest in Kuantan, several hundred people rallied against the Australian firm and Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad's decision to extend its licence to operate.

Mr Moses Lim, a chemical engineer turned activist, said that "[The radioactivity] will be passed through our children and our children's children. We may be gone, but our grandchildren will curse us."

Mr Lim claimed the issue had the potential to "tarnish the good name of Australia" in the minds of millions of Malaysians. I don't understand why Lynas, an Australian company, does this to Malaysia.

Mr Trump Issues Executive Order on Rare Earth Mining

US President Mr Donald Trump on September 30 ordered his Cabinet secretaries to look into the country’s reliance on rare earths in his latest bid to end China’s dominance of the industry. The move could lead to tariffs, quotas or other possible import restrictions. While the United States used to be the leading producer of the minerals, China has used its heft in the industry to its advantage in the trade dispute between the two world leaders. The US imports 80 percent of these elements directly from China, with portions of the remainder indirectly sourced from China through other countries

Rare earths are an obscure group of 17 minerals used to build a range of goods including weapons and consumer electronics. There is no known substitute for them.

US DOE NETL Led Projects for Rare Earth Extraction from Coal

The US Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management has awarded nearly USD 18 million to advance eight projects to extract rare earth elements and other critical minerals from materials such as coal waste materials and support revitalisation in regions across the country that face economic adversity due to declines in coal and power plants communities.

Each of the eight projects had previously worked with DOE to develop a conceptional design of a technology to produce at least 1-3 tonnes per day of mixed rare earth oxides or rare earth salts and other critical minerals from mostly coal-based sources. Rare earth elements and critical minerals are vital in the construction of medical equipment, energy components, defence technologies, modern electronics, and a host of other consumer goods.

The DOE recently exercised options to continue work on the eight projects to complete feasibility studies of their concepts. Each feasibility study, which will take 7 to 10 months to complete, and aims to accelerate the advancement of technology to extract these materials found in coal and coal waste products. The DOE’s National Energy Technology Laboratory managed the conceptional design phase of the contracts and will continue to manage the feasibility study phase.

The DOE exercised contract options to continue projects operated by: Energy Fuels Resources (Lakewood, Colorado); Materia USA LLC (Inwood, New York); MP Mine Operations LLC (Mountain Pass, California); Tetra Tech Inc. (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania); Texas Mineral Resources Corp. (Sierra Blanca, Texas); University of North Dakota (Grand Forks, North Dakota); West Virginia University Research Corporation (Morgantown, West Virginia); and Winner Water Services Inc. (Sharon, Pennsylvania).

Nechalacho Rare Earth Mining Project Starts Production in Canada

CBC News reported that production has started at Canada's first rare earth mining project, located about 100 kilometres southeast of Yellowknife. Vital Metals Nechalacho rare earth elements mine says blasting and mining activities have ramped up, and that the first ore was mined on June 29. Cheetah Resources operates the project, and owns the resources near the surface of the rare earth deposit. It's a subsidiary of Australian company Vital Metals.

The mine is now in the midst of a smaller-scale three-year demonstration project. Phase two of the project will involve mining a much larger deposit.

Nechalacho is Canada's only rare earth elements mining project, aiming to produce end-products that will ultimately be used in technology manufacturing. According to Natural Resources Canada, the most important use for rare earth elements is making magnets that can be used in cell phones, computers, wind turbines and electric vehicles.

Det'on Cho Nahanni Construction, partially owned by the Yellowknives Dene First Nation, signed the agreement early last year.

RARE EARTH: Vital Metals acquiring two heavy RE projects in Quebec

Australia-based Vital Metals is acquiring two planned heavy rare earth projects in Quebec to
complement its light rare earth Nechalacho project in Canada’s Northwest Territories.

The acquisition could make Vital Metals the only heavy and light RE producer in North America,
the company says in announcing that it has signed a binding agreement with Quebec Precious
Metals, Kallanish reports.

Vital Metals will acquire QPM’s 68% interest in the Kipawa exploration project and a 100%
interest in the Zeus exploration project for CAD 8 million ($6.39m) staged over five years. Joint
venture partner Investissement Quebec holds the remaining 32% stake in the Kipawa project.

“The acquisition of the projects provides Vital with a unique opportunity to become a producer of
both heavy and light rare earths,” says managing director Geoff Atkins in a statement. The Kipawa
project would allow the company to “produce a full suite of rare earths,” he says. “It has potential
to increase Vital Metals’ position as a strategic player in the North American critical minerals
supply chain at a time when demand continues to grow.”

Vital Metals says it intends to update a 2013 definitive feasibility study at Kipawa to reduce costs
and speed up the timeline for the project. That plan will be completed in the coming months, it
says.

The two nearby projects total 73 claims over 43 square km about 50 km east of Temiscaming in
southwest Quebec. Kipawa has a proven and probable reserve estimate of 19.8m tonnes at
0.411% TREO. Its RE materials include eudialyte, mosandrite and britholite. The mine would have
a 15-year life span.

The project was previously held in joint venture with Toyotsu Rare Earth Canada, a subsidiary of
Toyota Tsushu. Its interest was converted into a 10% net profit interest in 2014. That made
Kipawa the only rare earth project in the world in which Toyota had directly invested, the company
says.

Kipawa includes three enriched horizons. To date, 293 drill holes have been completed (24,571
metres) since 2011. At Zeus, 12 heavy rare earth showings have been identified, some of which
contain niobium and tantalum, the company says.

At present, Vital Metals is Canada’s sole RE producer and only the second in North America. It
began mining at Nechalacho last March and first production was last June.

RARE EARTH: Search Minerals to acquire 2.5% NSR from B&A Minerals
173 Views

Canada-based Search Minerals says it has entered into a non-binding letter of intent to acquire a 2.5% net smelter royalty (NSR) from B&A Minerals Ltd on properties in eastern Canada in exchange for CAD 2 million ($1.59m) and 15m shares in the company, Kallanish reports.

The purchase will reduce the NSR on properties held in Search Minerals’ developing critical rare earth district in southeast Labrador in eastern Canada and provide for increased financial flexibility, the company says.

“We believe the reduction of the royalty will provide flexibility with our future discussions regarding offtake agreements and funding for the projects,” says Search Minerals’ president and ceo Greg Andrews in a statement. “Our immediate goal remains to advance our critical rare earth element district to production.”

The transaction will also include some property transfers between the parties. The shares will be released over 24 months. The companies will start negotiating a definitive agreement for the proposed transactions that will supersede the LOI.

B&A currently holds a 3% NSR over the licenses contained in a large portion of Search Minerals’ rare earth element district. After the deal closes, B&A will still hold a 0.5% NSR on some properties within the district. Search Metals had the option to acquire 2% of the royalty for CAD 2m under a 2009 agreement. It exercised that right and purchased an additional 0.5% NSR.

The company with headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia, is developing what it calls its critical REE district that extends 63 kilometres in length and is 2 km wide with distinct sites. Those target areas range from 2 km to 40 km from St Lewis, Labrador. That includes the Foxtrot and Deep Fox projects and new REE exploration efforts at Fox Meadow, Awesome Fox and Silver Fox prospects.

RARE EARTH: Defense Metals signs cooperation pact with Sinosteel MECC
308 Views

Canada-based Defense Metals Corp says it has signed a landmark memorandum of understanding with Sinosteel Equipment and Engineering (Sinosteel MECC) in connection with its Wicheeda rare earth property in British Columbia, Kallanish reports.

The non-binding agreement covers information sharing, beneficiation test work, potential concentrator design research cooperation and an investigation into establishing an on-site, large-scale pilot plant at Wicheeda, the company says. That will allow Defense Metals assess the economic and technical feasibility of full-scale mine development, it says.

Information to be shared with Sinosteel MECC, a subsidiary of China-based Sinosteel Corp, includes mine development, permitting and licensing, transport logistics, project financing, cash cost analysis and situation updates, while Sinosteel MECC will share its expertise in the rare earth industry, it says.

Defense Metals will provide Sinosteel MECC with a 200-kilogram sample of the minerals to carry out beneficiation tests to determine a suitable design for the concentrator, it says. That testing will take up to 4.5 months and cost about $200,000.

Sinosteel MECC would be the general contractor for the pilot plant. It would likely be built in modules in China and then transported to British Columbia.

Sinosteel will also help Defense Metals attract new investors in China and elsewhere, the companies say.

“Defense Metals is pleased to announce a landmark MOU with Sinosteel MECC a major player in the global mining industry and looks forward to updating shareholders with further information as project development talks continues between the two companies,” says ceo Craig Taylor in a statement.

His company, with headquarters in Vancouver British Columbia, has been conducting additional drilling ar Wicheeda to define existing dolomite-carbonatite resources and perhaps to expand the deposit. The company says it intends to complete at least 2,000 metres of diamond drilling and perhaps as much as 5,000 m at the site 80 kilometres northeast of Prince George, British Columbia. The Wicheeda project covers 1,708 hectares. It has indicated mineral resources of 4.89 million tonnes averaging 3.02% light REE and inferred resources of 12.1m t averaging 2.90% light REE.

RARE EARTH: NioCorp pleased by Elk Creek metallurgical testing

Colorado-based NioCorp Developments is announcing success in the first stage of metallurgical testing designed to optimise the Elk Creek flowsheet and evaluate the potential integration of rare earth recovery to the Elk Creek project in southeast Nebraska.

The metallurgical work is being conducted by L3 Process Development with headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah. The new metallurgical testing programme is the next step in NioCorp’s goal of implementing the optimisation recommendations in the company’s 2019 feasibility study on the project for the production of niobium, scandium and titanium plus to demonstrate the potential extraction and recovery of REEs from the Elk Creek ore.

The company is most interested in neodymium-praseodymium oxide, terbium oxide and dysprosium oxide. The company has launched a review of the economic potential of expanding its planned product suite to include REEs, Kallanish understands.

The company is currently planning to produce rare earth scandium and scarce minerals niobium and titanium, and any added rare earth products produced would be in addition to those products. The project plans to produce scandium oxide that is used in producing solid oxide fuel cells and high-performance aluminium alloys. The carbonatite mine, near the town of Elk Creek, Nebraska, is expected to produce about 95 tonnes/year of scandium trioxide over the project’s 36-year life span. The project covers 3,156 hectares.

The company’s plan is to extract and purify scandium, niobium and titanium from the Elk Creek ore by putting the minerals into solution and that would also put already-present rare earth elements simultaneously into solution, it says. Drilling shows 14 different REEs present at Elk Creek, it says.

Trending Now: China makes first move towards Afghan rare earths, critical minerals
Power Materials News | Aug. 17, 2021

The world’s largest rare earth producer, China, may extend its market dominance if it gets access to Afghanistan’s huge resources now in the hands of the Taliban. This is expected to increase global geopolitical tension and challenges to the energy transition.

The Asian giant produced 140,000 tonnes of rare earths in 2020, which corresponds to 52.3% of the global production, according to the bp Statistical Review of World Energy 2021. With a 15.5% stake, Australia is the second largest producer, followed by the US with a 14.2% share. China also controls over 80% of the global rare earth processing capacity.

Beijing is ready for “friendly cooperation with Afghanistan” after the country was overtaken by Taliban fighters, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a press conference on Monday. The Taliban took over the capital Kabul and the presidential palace without much resistance on 15 August, as Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.

“We are ready to continue to develop good-neighbourliness and friendly cooperation with Afghanistan and play a constructive role in Afghanistan’s peace and reconstruction,” she said.

Afghanistan has large deposits of copper, lithium (spodumene) and rare earth minerals, among other metals. It has been once described by American officials as the “Saudi Arabia of lithium” and, if further developed, its mining industry could contribute to its economic growth and the global supply of critical materials to decarbonisation, Kallanish understands.

The International Monetary Fund said in a report in 2018 that “Afghanistan might be far away from being able to develop its mining sector sustainably owing to deterioration of the security situation, political uncertainty, the deficiency of its infrastructure, and stalled projects.” It forecast then that illegal mining and insurgent control over mining sites would likely continue to be critical challenges to the development of the mineral sector in the “near future.”

With support from China, Russia and Iran, the Taliban could become a supplier of raw materials for the EV industry and generating trillions of dollars in revenues. Afghan resources are reportedly worth between $1 and $3 trillion.

“So there should be pressure on China if they are going to do alliances with the Taliban in order to generate economic aid for them — that they do it on international terms,” defends Shamailan Khan, head of Emerging Markets Debt at Alliance Bernstein.

“It should be an international initiative to make sure that if any country is agreeing to exploit its minerals on behalf of the Taliban, to only do it under strict humanitarian conditions where human rights, and rights for women are preserved in the situation,” she said in a televised interview on Tuesday.

Both the Afghanistan and the US geological surveys have estimated large reserves of rare earth elements in the war-torn country, yet an exact figure remains a state secret. In 2011, the US Geological Survey said the Khanashin carbonatites, in southern Helmand province, have an estimated 1 million tonnes of rare earth metals at a “potentially useful concentration.”

RARE EARTH: Appia Energy to expand drilling at Alces Lake project
199 Views

Ontario-based Appia Energy Corp is expanding its 2021 rare earth drill programme at its flagship Alces Lake project in northern Saskatchewan, Kallanish reports.

The drilling includes two rigs and has grown from 5,700 metres to 7,200 m or more due to successful explorations activities at the site, the company says. Drilling began last July with a team of 13 geologists. The drilling is designed to expand and confirm the extent of high-grade mineralisation of REE and critical metal gallium.

An airborne radiometric/magnetic survey of the property has been completed with numerous extensive thorium anomalies detected, mostly in the under-explored western portion of the tract. That includes a large thorium anomaly in that area. There are also several newly discovered monazite occurrences, including the promising Sweet Chili Heat zone, it says. Thorium is associated with monazite which hosts REE at Alces Lake.

The company has also staked an additional 7,049 hectares of contiguous land, increasing the land holdings at Alces Lake to 25,083 hectares.

Detailed exploration at Alces Lake began in 2017. The site is 34 kilometres east of Uranium City, Saskatchewan. A total of 74 REE, gallium and uranium-bearing zones and occurrences have been discovered over 45 km of the system on the property. REE targets include neodymium, praseodymium, dysprosium and terbium. To date, less than 1% of the site has been explored by diamond drilling. The project area includes an old mining camp. The company, with headquarters in Toronto, Ontario, is also involved in Canadian uranium mining.
