Rare Earth Elements: The Technology Metals Infographic

Rare Earth Elements: The Technology Metals

In this infographic, we look at how rare earth elements are an essential input for most of the technology we use today. Rare earths are used to build high powered magnets, lasers, and modern displays – all things we need to make things like iPads, TVs, hybrid vehicles, medical equipment, smart phones, portable x-ray machines, wind turbines, speakers, microphones, and headphones.

China currently has a near monopoly on rare earth production and has reduced export quotas. It is also expected to run out of rare earth reserves in 15-20 years.

What will the future hold for rare earth elements and what kind of investment opportunities do they create for investors?

  1. Dear Dacha:

    I own the mineral rights to an estimated 8 million metric tons of monazite in the southeastern Adirondack Mountains in upstate New York. This should mean 500,000mt of thorium, 4.5Mmt of rare earths and 200,000mt of phosphorus. State regulators have been giving us fits for years now, but finally starting to work with us….

    Kind regards,

    HRE is the percious metal for the future technology & application. Lynas has it the technology, experts, pioneer R&D, owned the richest rare earth mines in Mt Weld at Australia AND biggest rare earth refinery/facilities in the world at Malaysia (Lynas Malaysia). Moreover, Malaysia – the greatest business opportunity/investment and country of Free Trade Zone (FTZ).

    In the meantime we just have to wait the supply and demand increase, the chinese has done their bid to try that prices go up but it has not worked, at present the market is down there is not demand, maybe in the 3rd quarter things will improve
