China-Japan Dispute Shines Light on Rare Earth Metals
I'm Alex Villarreal with the VOA Special English Economics Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com | http://facebook.com/voalearningenglish Few people had ever heard of the natural elements known as rare earth metals before a recent dispute between China and Japan. Yet these metals are used in devices like smartphones, flat screen televisions, hybrid car batteries, MP3 players and military equipment.In September, Japan detained a Chinese ship captain near disputed islands in the East China Sea. China denied that it stopped exports of rare earth metals to Japan to force his release. But the incident raised concerns. Japan is the world's biggest importer of rare earth metals. And China produces ninety-seven percent of the world supply. China says it sold almost four billion dollars' worth in two thousand eight. But marketing professor George Haley at the University of New Haven in Connecticut says China has always kept prices low.He says: "So unlike other minerals the price of rare earth elements has actually fallen."Some countries with rare earth metals no longer mine them -- including the United States. One reason is the low-cost imports from China. Another reason is concern about environmental damage. So what are these rare earth metals? Well, most of them are not rare; that is just their name. Several are more common than copper, lead or silver. People who remember the periodic table of the elements from chemistry class might recognize them. Rare earths include the fifteen lanthanide metals along with yttrium and scandium. Samuel Bader, a physicist at the Argonne National Laboratory near Chicago, says rare earths are often found together.But Mr. Bader explains that the same properties that make them hard to refine also make them valuable. He says: "Rare earth metals provide the world's strongest commercial magnets. This is why they're important. It's that simple."Rare earth magnets are lightweight and unaffected by conditions like high temperatures. So they work well in places like electric motors in hybrid vehicles or generators for wind turbines. Physicists use super-powerful magnets to speed particles and control radiation like X-rays. George Haley says they are found in electronics, fiber optics and other products. They are important not just for the economic success of the United States, but for defense and job creation at home.Next week, we'll talk more about rare earth metals, and an American company that plans to start mining them again.

TOP 10 Accidents In Metal Industry
10 Accidents In Metal Industry! This Video talks about different kinds of risks that is associated in metal industry. So. that we can aware you about safety instructions. As you know safety of workers or individuals are primary concern for TTI. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ # 10 Slag Explosions Slag or metal waste is the waste material that remains after Ore-Purification. And that won't be used in the metal processing. Generally when metal impurities mix with water, for instance, a big explosion may occur. #9 Electric Arc Furnaces The electric arc furnaces have been substituting traditional furnaces in many steel plants worldwide. #8 Boiler Explosion Boilers are very important in the metal industry. They are defined as a closed pressure vessel where a fluid is heated by applying the resulting heat externally. #7 Fires One of the hazards to be considered in the metal industry is fire. Fire increases the possibilities for accidents to occur. #6 Moisture Water entry or just simple moisture in the boiler can produce bad results that could put at risk the worker’s live in the metal industry. #5 Slag Dumping We cannot consider the slag dumping as an accident, but the consequences of this action can be very negative. Slag or waste originate from ore smelting to purify metals. #4 Steel Casting ladle break Broadly speaking, the steel casting ladle is a tool used in the metal refining and casting. it is used to transport and pour the red hot metal. They are made of steel and have a refractory lining to withstand high temperatures. #3 Molten Metal Splashes One of the most common risks in metal smelting are the splashes of molten metal. It is in fact one of the points for risk prevention. #2 Eruptions in Metal Casting Centres A very risky event is the metal casting process. This process consists of pouring the smelted metal into a cast for it to become solid. #1 Fire Loops or Cobble this kind of accident can be lethal for workers who are near. The temperature of this kind of molten metal loops is extremely high. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FOLLOW TOP 10 INFORMATION-TTI Facebook Page:- MESSEGE ME https://www.facebook.com/top10informationssss/?fref=ts Google Plus:-https://plus.google.com/+TOP10INFORMATION10 Twitter:-https://twitter.com/TopTenInfor SUBSCRIBE:-https://goo.gl/F6pHMw INSTAGRAM https://www.instagram.com/top_10_information/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONTACT Me for Copyright Related issues, Credit addition and deletion: we will solve your issue within few hours https://www.facebook.com/top10informationssss/

Get Ready for the Asteroid Gold Rush
Asteroid mining will be a major engine for future economic growth, says author and entrepreneur Steven Kotler. His latest book is Tomorrowland: Our Journey from Science Fiction to Science Fact (http://goo.gl/eLjsSX). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/steven-kotler-on-asteroid-mining Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - We had the idea that we could mine asteroids for over a hundred years. Late 1800s is when we first started thinking about this in the first place. And today we have I think it’s three or four different asteroid mining companies. It’s no longer an idea. We actually have companies that are actively pursuing this. And we also have really serious economic reasons for pursuing this, right. A lot of the metals, rare earth metals that we need to make all of our electronic gear are very scarce on Earth and totally plentiful in space. Gold, platinum – platinum is a fantastic conductor. We don’t build technology around it very much because all the platinum on Earth would essentially fit into the back of a flatbed truck, right. There’s a very limited supply. It is everywhere in space. So if you look at the history of the world it’s always been the search for resources that has opened up new frontiers. It’s been the economic driver that has opened up new frontiers. Well that economic driver is there in space. And you have to think about it this way. If you go back 20 years ago, right, when Shell discovered the first North Sea oil deposit. It was beneath 5,000 feet of water, 10,000 feet of rock and they had to operate in this very cold, very hostile, very far away environment robotically to get at oil. It was resource extraction. North Sea oil platforms are very, very expensive but we learned. Shell was willing to take a very, very expensive bet to operate robotically in a very hostile distant far and away environment to get at resources, right. The same budget sort of applies to asteroid mining and it’s the same exact situation. It is a very far away, very remote robotically extracted resource if we’re mining asteroids. So we’ve done this before. We’ve been down this exact road and for the first time in history we have the technology, right. We’ve already been in three different missions already. Two out of NASA and one out of Japan that have caught up to asteroids, right. We even had one that Hayabusa probe scratched the surface and brought back some dust. It’s low grade first step mining, right. So we already have proof of concept. We know it can be done. We know where the resources are out there. And there are companies pursuing it. Will it happen in the next 20-25 years? The next 10 years? The next 20-25 or the next 50 years? I don’t know. If you talk to the people running the companies they’ll put a 10 to 20 year time horizon on it. I think it’s a little farther out. But again we’re going to see it sometime in the next 50 years. And you have to understand what this means. You know they did a study where they looked at the amount of gold contained in just a typical middle of the road asteroid, not even like a metallic asteroid. Just a typical middle of middle of the road one and it was double what Fort Knox held at the height of Fort Knox, right. So there’s enough gold in one asteroid to kind of devalue every currency market on Earth. So that’s what’s coming and it’s really, really interesting, right. It sounds like this crazy science fiction technology but it’s going to have real world economic impact on this planet within the century. And so we have to kind of be prepared for it at the same time that we’re thinking about it’s still science fiction.

Rare Earth Metals - Strategically Important: Relying on Chinese Production
Very interesting clip from 60 Minutes in the USA discussing how RARE EARTH ELEMENTS like MOLYBDENUM are strategically important in new technologies. However over the last 20 years the US has lost its production capability and now finds itself reliant on China - who could stop exports at any time should there be a dispute.

Your old phone is a veritable gold mine
E-waste is more than phones and laptops. There’s gold, silver, copper, and lots of other precious metals powering your electronics, and that makes for some valuable “e-waste”. And a recent study proposed that it’s now more cost-effective to dig minerals out of old electronics than out of the Earth. We crack open some old tech to see where these metals are hiding, and find out just how hard it is to reclaim them safely. Clarification: in citing India, China, and South Africa as suffering from growing e-waste problems, we didn’t mention that those countries are also producing record amounts of their own e-waste, in addition to anything being imported from other countries. E-waste from all sources is on the rise, forcing governments to figure out how to deal with it safely and efficiently.

US to Wean Itself from China's Rare Earth?
A US based non-profit called the Strategic Materials Advisory Council warned the US Department of Defense on March 21 against stockpiling rare earth metals. Currently, China supplies about 95% of the rare earths market. The non-profit is concerned that relying on China for material so essential to US defense is unwise. Instead of stockpiling the material, it recommends redeveloping a rare earths industry in the US that can support the US long-term. Rare earths were mined in the US some years ago but closed down in 2002 because of the inherent environmental damage and abundant supply from China. Because China has so much control over the market, buyers are worried it could toy with the supply and hike up the prices as it did in 2011. Japan learned the hard way how politics can affect the supply. In 2010 China cut all its rare earth exports to Japan, seriously hurting its high-tech industry. Rare earth elements have many functions, but are best known for their use in batteries. The US outlined rare earths in its "Strategic and Critical Materials 2013 Report on Stockpile Requirements," and recommended spending over $120 million to stash it. Other countries are also trying to develop their own rare earths production to diversify the supply away from China.

Race to the bottom? India plans deep dive for seabed minerals
In the 1870 Jules Verne classic "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea", underwater explorer Captain Nemo predicted the mining of the ocean floor's mineral bounty - zinc, iron, silver and gold. India is catching up with that only now, as it prepares to unearth treasures down below, aiming to boost its economy. The floor of the world's seas is scattered with vast beds of black potato-shaped polymetallic nodules comprising copper, nickel, cobalt, manganese, iron and rare earth elements. These natural goodies are key to making modern gadgets, from smartphones and laptops to pacemakers, hybrid cars and solar panels. As expanding technology and infrastructure fuel global demand for these resources - whose supply is dwindling fast onshore - more and more countries, including manufacturing powerhouses India and China, are eyeing the ocean.

#CommerceResources $CCE.V $CMRZF in Quebec Could Break the Chinese Rare Earth Monopoly
http://goldstocktrades.com/blog What an exciting week for precious metals and junior mining investors? Black swans happen all the time and we wait positioned for those inevitable volatile events. This week we are witnessing major changes to the global diplomatic stage. As President Trump of the USA was eating a candlelight dinner with Chinese President Xi after a few drinks he turned on the TV for a nice display of missile launches against Syria's Assad. This is a message to both Putin and Xi that he means business. Unfortunately, what Trump may not realize is that the Russians and Chinese control our domestic supply of clean energy through the supply of rare earths from China and Uranium from Russia. At any time they can squeeze the supply from China or Kazakhstan forcing the EU, Japan and US to grovel for these critical metals. Meanwhile, the Chinese and Russians are manipulating their currencies lower causing major trade deficits. The cheap commodities comes at a huge cost as our major mining and manufacturing centers in North America have been shuttered over the past 3 decades. Another major concern is that the US is unable to keep up with the cybersecurity issues from China and Russia where there has been breaches into banks and government offices. Its ridiculous we use to be the leader in high tech and mining. The rare earths are a US invention during a time of war coming out of the Manhattan Project. Unfortunately, our top technologies and mines were sent overseas unable to compete with China's slave labor and complete disregard for the environment. Its time we take our rare earth industry back and become a leader in mining and manufacturing once again. We can not sell our birthright for a pot of soup. How much longer will China control our rare earths? How long will our military and manufacturers be held hostage by the Chinese? Trump should say to Xi that the era of selling out the American middle class is over. We will mine and manufacture our own rare earths and restart our uranium mines right here in the North America. There are hearings in Washington DC to the Senate on this issue and I believe more will come out of this as their has been legislation introduced called the Metals Act. In the bill it discusses developing a secured supply chain for critical metals needed for our national defense. Last night all those missiles require rare earths to guide them. How can our military be dependent on the Chinese for these rare earths that go into fighter jets, drones, missiles...etc. We've seen a huge military buildup in the South China Seas. Any spark of hostility between China, North Korea and one of our allies and the rare earths can spike again. You see the rare earth prices lie dormant for years but there could be another spike like 2010. Maybe even greater this time as the Chinese are really running out of their own rare earths and need to look abroad. Take a look at one of the few rare earth survivors Commerce Resources $CCE.V $CMRZF which has been around since 2005. Its had a few runs in the past when rare earth prices took off and it may be ready to move again if investors look towards rare earths once again. There are not many rare earth companies left, but Commerce has survived because of the support of the Quebec government and the world class grades. The issue is infrastructure at it is in Northern Quebec not metallurgy or grade. However, the Quebec Government appears to be taking an interest leading the last financing. I hope this could be the beginning of major support to get rare earth mining started again in Quebec. Some of the other companies Resources Quebec invested in is Stornoway Diamond where they helped finance a long haul road. This support could be a game changer for Commerce. Plus they are looking into wind power which other mines up in Northern Quebec use such as Glencore and Debeers. I would like to highlight a little unknown fact about Commerce in that they have a binding MOU with Glencore. Commerce's deposit will have also flurospar which mostly comes from China so there is some great possibilities with this 12 year old company trading at lows. It may grow up soon with the Quebec investment and have some positive news going forward. I hope by the time its bar mitzvah at 13 it will have matured to a higher level. Disclosure: I own shares and warrants in Commerce Resources and they are a website sponsor which means I have a conflict of interest as I have been compensated. Please be aware this is an advertisement and not financial advice. I am not a financial advisor. This contains forward looking statements which may not come to fruition. Remember junior mining is risky and one can lose his entire investment. Buyer Beware of the conflict of interest and do your own due diligence.

Bizarre Discoveries in Mines
Here are 11 of the most unusual findings deep in the earth like ancient and time primate fossils or trapped toads alive in rocks!! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 7 Toads found in Rock One strange phenomena that still doesn’t have an explanation are toads that find themselves entombed deep into stone and continue to live. For years quarriers and miners have discovered to their surprise, live toads inside of the rocks they crack open. In some cases the toads are found 5, 10, and even 20 feet deep inside of rock. In all cases, they have no visible way in or out and yet in all cases they are all still alive. This bizarre phenomena is often called “toad in the hole”. No one knows how these toads find themselves in the rock, or how they survive without any water, food, or air. # 6 Ghost Miners in Mponeng The world’s deepest gold mine called the Mponeng Mine located in South Africa runs so far into the ground with so many winding tunnels that it’s almost like a dark underground city. The expansive, dark, and hot mine is almost impossible to completely keep watch over so every once in awhile an illegal squatter will be discovered. Mponeng squatters are called “ghost miners” and will find empty caverns to make their home in, illegally mine gold to sell above ground, and will even meet with prostitutes in the mines. # 5 The Bold Travelers of Mponeng - Desulforudis audaxviator In the world’s deepest gold mine, a new species of bacterium was discovered called Desulforudis audaxviator. Audaxviator translates to “bold traveller” which refers to the fact that the bacteria was found 2 miles below the surface of the Earth and is the only organism in its ecosystem. The strange bacteria has evolved to live without sunshine or oxygen. Instead, it lives off of hydrogen and sulfide as food, which come from the breakdown of radioactive elements. Basically, it’s a nuclear waste eating bacteria. It’s the only one of its kind and have amazed scientists with its complete solitude underground. # 4 Giant Roach Fossil Found in Ohio Coal Mine Geologists were combing through an old coal mine in an area known for its plant fossils when they discovered an extremely rare fossil. It was a giant roach fossil - about 4 inches long and twice as big as most modern American roaches. The fossil is rare because it’s completely in tact, while most insect fossils are only partial imprints. Fossils in the cave also preserved some of the smallest cockroach fossils ever found and their color patterns. Inside the coal mine, even more rare insect fossils were found including a rare ancient arachnid and a 60 inch long and 12 inch wide centipede. The chemistry of this coal mine in Ohio somehow preserved these insects with extreme detail that is not seen anywhere else. # 3 Dead Body found in Ghost Town Mine Hobby adventurers had the scare of their life when they were exploring an abandoned ghost town called Whroo in Victoria, Australia. The two were in the ghost town’s abandoned mine when they found a dead body covered in plastic and shoved into a deeper hole inside. The victim was a 50 year old man in a Neil Young shirt and the perpetrators were later found to be a 26 year old man and 30 year old woman. The details on this case are scarce, but it has all the makings of a really good CSI episode. # 2 Four Square Miles of Carboniferous Forest Discovered The fossils of almost an entire forest from the Carboniferous period was uncovered in the ceiling of two adjacent coal mines in Illinois. This discovery is the largest single-period fossil discovery in recorded history. Archaeologists delved into the 250 feet deep mine to explore and record the fossils. There were upwards of 200 specimens of detailed shrubs, trees, flowers, and even insects. # 1 Tiny, Strange Primate Fossil In the Krabi coal mine of Thailand, archaeologists uncovered a new species of a teacup sized primate. They found mandibles that belong to the pea-sized primates called Krabia minuta. Krabia minuta were native to Asia and are the ancestors to all monkeys, apes, and humans. They were impressively able to make it to Africa despite being separated from a body of water at the time that was bigger than the Mediterrenean sea. This bizarre find is very important for archaeologists, because it indicates a period of extreme evolution of primates in the area and will continue to yield more discoveries in years to come.

Illegal Mining Reaps Millions for Jiangxi Officials
Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews While the rest of the China is trying to limit rare earth mining by applying stricter rules to its production, in Ganzhou City, Jiangxi Province, officials are collaborating with business owners to illegally mine and sell rare earths, reaping huge profits and brining ecological disaster to the area. Hong Kong's Oriental Daily News reported on September 28, that according to sources, in the first half of 2011, there were around a hundred billionaires in the economically undeveloped city of Ganzhou, including a multitude of millionaires, all of them being rare earth mining business owners. They all drive luxury cars and can be spotted everywhere in the city. Zhang Yi, from Ganzhou City, started a rare earth business earlier this year and already has a net worth in the billions. Many of his friends have already upgraded their cars, so he is considering buying a new BMW. Sichuan environmental activist, Chen Yunfei: "If business owners are becoming billionaires, there must be government officials who are also becoming billionaires; they're just not making it obvious. The business owners are paying off officials, or they're diverting the payback money abroad. These business owners are definitely colluding with officials and are acting as the voice of government officials." Rare earths are valuable because of their versatility, as they can be used in making metals, machine parts, chemicals, ceramics, and leather. Their most important use is in metallurgy, as adding a small amount of rare earths to steel and nonferrous metals can greatly improve their properties. According to a report, in Ganzhou City, the cost of one ton of rare earth is about 30,000 yuan (US$4,691), but it can be sold for over 400,000 yuan (US$62,558). One truck can carry at least 10 tons, so just one load can net about 4 million yuan (US$625,492). According to sources, local officials are shareholders in these rare earth mining companies, reaping huge annual dividends. Mr. Lin from the Department of Geology and Mineral Resources in Jiangxi Province said, "Driven by financial interest, the price of rare earths keeps rising. Since rare earths have many industrial uses, they can be easily mined, bringing fortunes to those involved." Also, because the mining and refining process of rare earths is generally being carried out in a careless manner, irreparable damages is being done to the surrounding areas. Local farmers have repeatedly requested that authorities perform thorough investigations into the situation, but to no avail. Many farmers are forced to perform hard labor in other cities because their farm land is contaminated beyond repair. Sichuan environmental activist, Chen Yunfei, said, "Mining without a plan will affect many generations to come." Chen: "It is at expense and interest of many future generations. On one hand we are concerned about protecting the environment, on the other hand, financial gains are at stake. No mining project is ever evaluated by experts. When mining rare earths, a business'' operation needs to be carefully evaluated and must go through long-term planning. We have to limit the amount that can be mined each year. No one does this, because all they care about is immediate profits." In Ganzhou City, in Longnan County, the ecological damage done there due to rare earth mining, has turned the soil red, with barren hills spotted everywhere. The once clear river has turned yellowish with an unbearable strong smell, thus the river water cannot be used to feed humans or animals. Farmers can only stock up on rainwater. After the farm land is exposed to acidic erosion, it can no longer be used to grow food. Jiangxi environmental staff: "We know that the ammonia content is over the allowable limit, thus damaging the environment and affecting underground water sources." Ganzhou Nonferrous Metallurgy Research Institute, deputy director, |Yang Xinhua said environmental remediation of rare earths is imminent.

Northern Minerals rise in the rare earth sector to third largest market cap worldwide
November 27, 2014 — In a special November 24, 2014 — In a special InvestorIntel interview, the Editor-in-Chief and Publisher Tracy Weslosky interviews George Bauk, Managing Director and CEO for Northern Minerals Limited (ASX: NTU) on the ease of separation of rare earths from xenotime mineralization and their rise to the third largest marketcap outside of China. Tracy Weslosky: George I want to start with what I think is the biggest news about Northern Minerals, which is how did you go from being number 18 in market caps in the sector a year and a half ago to number 3? George Bauk: It's been a really interesting last 9 months like you mentioned and I think in the second half of this year we've started to really get the recognition of getting all the licensing in place, getting the prefeasibility study complete, and being successful with fund raising. I think it's all coming together and the confidence is there. As we've talked about in the past, the centerpiece is the xenotime and the ease of separation. I think people are starting to see the emergence of Northern Minerals, but the licensing of that is I believe really put us forward. Tracy Weslosky: I think Northern Minerals is a great example of how actually maintaining a relationship with your shareholders works. I think you've put out 29 news releases since January. Is that correct George? George Bauk: That's about right, yes. Tracy Weslosky: I picked out your most recent drilling results, the update on Browns Range project, the capital towards achieving your prefeasibility study was big news -- your environmental approval, where would you like to start? George Bauk: I have to be careful Tracy because you know I'll end up going through all 29 of them. I think the one surrounding the licensing were quite instrumental because definitely as you're heading towards the back end now looking for the large amount of capex to build the project, the financiers are really making sure that you're shovel ready, you've got the approvals in place. I think starting off the tier one, the real key ones have been the environmental approvals, the mining lease granted, the native title agreement approved and then the prefeasibility study has really put the economics around it. I would center on those ones as being the highlights of 2014. Tracy Weslosky: So let's go right into the prefeasibility study. What is your schedule for this?

Jim Kennedy - Department of Defence Blocked Solution to Rare Earth Crisis @ TEAC6
Federal Law requires that all U.S. defense systems be built with U.S. or allied components. The reality is that nearly every defense system in the U.S. arsenal is 100% reliant on China for rare earth materials and components. Even the small quantity of heavy rare earths mined in United States are shipped to China for processing. Solution: S. 2006 "The National Rare Earth Cooperative Act". Bill S. 2006 was introduced as a stand alone Bill in February 2014. Jim: "On May 19, shortly after a well received bi-cameral Congressional Briefing to Armed Services and Natural Resource staff, we were informed that the DoD had taken direct action to kill this bill." "We are now looking for a champion in Congress who is willing to force the defense industry to comply with the law." "National Rare-Earth Cooperative Act" has been re-introduced as H.R. 4883: https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 Please contact your representatives and voice your support for this bill. The cost of failure: China's continued rare earth monopoly exiles the U.S. and our economic allies to the technological hinterlands of material science and economic competitiveness. Technical Note: 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. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. Footage captured for Thorium Remix project. http://ThoriumRemix.com/

AMR Minerals: 1-3 year Lead Horse in the rare earth production race?
December 6, 2103 — Tracy Weslosky, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of InvestorIntel, interviews Tumerk Komurcu, of AMR Mineral Metal Inc., who describes his company's current endeavour as "a near-term production, low CAPEX, rare earth element and minor metals project." She mentions that AMR Minerals was brought to her attention by Jack Lifton, an Editor on the InvestorIntel site, and a director on AMR Mineral's Board. AMR Mineral Metal owns 100% of the mining rights to Heavy Mineral Sands-like REE & Minor Metals deposits in southern Turkey. As a member of the EU Customs Union, and having a modern mining legal system, not to mention offering mining incentives to encourage in-country investment, Turkey looks to be a good geo-political risk-to-reward bet for the kind of cutting-edge production effort envisioned by AMR. If plans to get its project into production work out anywhere near schedule, AMR could enjoy a lap-around lead on most of its competitors. Tracy initiated the session, asking Tumerk to discuss the "number one question" -- regarding AMR's "low CAPEX" aspect of his company's project equation. He responded that, for total project estimates, "CAPEX is expected to come in at around $190m. For our Phase I Project -- which is scalable -- (it is anticipated to be) at $65m, and we are looking to get into full production by the end of 2015." Within the next 6--8 months AMR Mineral is expecting to have a demonstration plant set up in Turkey. Once funding is in place, they plan to complete the Phase I construction within 12 months. Tracy noted that for this "sizeable resource", infrastructure was in place and asked Tumerk for further details. He added that "Our project is located in the southern part of Turkey, very close to commercial seaports and commercial airports. We do have roads, water and electricity right into the deposit site." After noting AMR Mineral has "one of the fastest production timelines of anybody in the sector" as well as an impressive Management Team and Board of Directors, she asked Tumerk what the company needs to do in order to get to the next level. "Now we are looking to close the financing within the next month, which will get us to set up a demonstration plant in Turkey, where we will be producing all of the individual products on a continuous basis - in small quantities - but on a continuous basis. We are looking to finalize our bankable feasibility study by 2014." Tracy observed that "in essence you are a multi-commodity play" with numerous critical or strategic minerals, along with zirconium (a heat and corrosion resistant metal with physical properties similar to those of titanium). Tumerk stated that they would be able to produce zirconium at 99% recoveries. Management is working with a group out of India which has years of experience in the commercial production of zirconium. "That's why we call our project a 'rare earth elements and minor metals project'. Along with rare earths, they have titanium, zirconium and iron oxide...we can attribute zero value to cerium and lanthanum, and still have very robust project economy", Tumkerk concluded. An excellent presentation, found on AMR Mineral Metal site here notes that China dominates the REO Industry with 95% of global production, more than 60% of which it consumes internally. An important corollary is that as demand for "technology enablers" grows, Japan, the EU and the U.S. are seeking sources of reliable supplies. Especially informative is the p9 chart (of a 22 pp presentation) listing AMR's advantages compared to 5 of its peers. Noteworthy is the company's expected IRR, its target production year (at 1-3 years ahead of competitors), and its calculations of cost-revenue/yr. for its Canakli Project. Add to this the favorable deposit and mineral formation (e.g. "naturally well-liberated minerals, with no need for crushing and grinding") and a compelling story begins to emerge. Canakli has a 2,000 ha operating license, permitting and licensing has been completed, and environmental permits are in place. AMR also has completed a resistivity survey and geological mapping on another property, the Cobanisa Deposit. This is in addition to having performed surface inspection and limited sampling on 5 other deposits. On the Shareholder front, AMR Mineral Metal sits at 44.9m shares, Fully Diluted. When you're potentially 1-3 years ahead in the race to production, your competitors could find themselves eating a lot of dust. And AMR Mineral Metal, Inc. seems poised to accomplish just that.

Anthony Marchese of Texas Rare Earth presents at the Technology Metals Summit
Watch Anthony Marchese, Chairman of Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TRER) present being one of the lowest cost technology metal projects in the world during the InvestorIntel Technology Metals Summit on October 14, 2015 in Toronto. Explaining how the Texas Rare Earth Resources’ model is profitable “even today”, using internal Chinese prices, he explains how the project risk is mitigated by non-REE by-product opportunities. Probably of greatest interest to our audience, Anthony describes how the DLA contract both validates the project and provides potential major offtake potential. Anthony Marchese: First of all, thank you Tracy for putting on the conference and allowing me to step in at the last second and describe Texas Rare Earth Resources. I’m going to go through this very quickly. It’s a much longer presentation than 10 minutes, but in any case the story of Texas Rare Earth Resources is quite simple. We are a massive low-grade deposit, highly economic, multi polymetallic rather, about 80 miles southeast of El Paso, Texas. We are near a major metropolitan area. Easy extraction, I think, even at today’s China economics. We’re still a very profitable, potentially profitable enterprise. We have 41 million shares outstanding, market cap ridiculously low at $9.1 million. We have a lot of skin in the game, insider ownership about 38%. Institutional ownership about 12% and a fair amount of float so there are plenty of shares to trade. Our PEA from several years ago, that will come down as a result of our association with K-Technologies and I’ll let them talk about what they do. They’ll be presenting I guess later on. Originally we thought about $290 million, incredible economics; IRR of 67%. That was based at the time on China internal prices. Substituting China internal prices today, that number probably is in the mid-teens. It shows you how much it’s dropped, but still if you’re showing positive economics, I believe, in today’s environment then you have a reasonable chance of doing fairly well if you get into production. Enormous --- That was based on a 20-year mine life. Realistically we have about 105-year mine life and that’s only the first of three mountains in the area, I’ll talk about that a little bit more, primarily heavy rare earths about 72%, in addition to a number of byproducts, which I’ll describe in a moment. Board of directors, Amanda probably knows Eric Noyrez, former CEO of Lynas, is on our board. Jack Lifton who is one of the featured moderators joined our board a couple of years ago. I don’t think there’s a day that goes by that I don’t speak to or email Jack several times a day. We have a working board. We are very active in managing the company. We have a lot of experience. Our project, again, 80 miles southeast of El Paso, Texas. I’ll describe. This is the deposit. This is the mountain. There’s no overburden. You come in, dig it out, we’ll be heap leaching it. And I’ll just talk about our contract with the Department of Defense in a moment, but we can sell our output 100 times over just to the defense industry. This is a very interesting study that no one ever mentions…to access the full presentation, click here

The Arafura 'magnet advantage' and the worldwide demand for these rare earths
July 9, 2014 -- Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel speaks to Gavin Lockyer, Managing Director at Arafura Resources ('Arafura', ASX: ARU) about some of the highlights from the Guangzhou Rare Earths Conference as well as Arafura's achievements this year. Gavin said the Conference, which was held in the final week of June, was "well attended by 95% of the market, which are the Chinese producers and the insight I gained from that was the optimism, they were showing in the rare earths space, which is very encouraging." Perhaps, most interesting is Gavin's observation that "they are certainly keen to see other non-Chinese producers up and running". Indeed, they are encouraged by this development because it helps to ease some of the pressure they are facing from the market. Gavin is encouraged by the interest in magnets and the magnet industry and "the growth that they're all predicting." Arafura's numbers, adds Gavin, are all based on a 10% year on year growth rate in the magnet sector. Tracy suggests that magnets are generating increasing demand worldwide, which means that the mining companies producing the rare earth elements used to make the magnets are going to offer good value to shareholders. Gavin confirms that the Chinese magnet producers, attending the Conference, showed a lot of interest in Arafura's Nolans Project, which is not surprising given its (20%) neodymium and (6%) praseodymium content, which are the two main materials used to make rare earth magnets. Gavin says that some 26% of Arafura's resources are targeting the lucrative and growing magnet market. Such a market for Arafura includes China, which, given its current dominant position in the rare earths and magnet sectors, is a very welcome and surprising prospect. Meanwhile, Arafura is set to complete the crucial benchmarks leading to production. The first in the pipeline is the Feasibility Study, which should be ready in September 2015 "if not sooner', says Gavin. Chinese partners have been helping Arafura to find ways to optimize the flow sheet in order to speed up the process leading to production. Arafura is unique in the rare earths sector. Gavin points out that Arafura's uniqueness stems from the composition of its resource, which as stated above, features 26% magnet feed materials (at the very top end of rare earth development projects anywhere in the world), accounting by themselves "about 77% or thereabouts of our total revenues and we would like to position ourselves in the marketplace as the next magnet producer." These revenues, and indeed Arafura's recent financial evaluation of Nolans (NPV $2 billion, IRR 21%), are based on a very conservative forward pricing model by the company that assigns zero growth to the current prices of all the rare earths, with the exception of the magnet feed rare earths neodymium and praseodymium. As for the next six months, Arafura is getting ready to issue a 'development update document' (not to be confused with feasibility study), which will further explain recent changes to the project as well as the projected CAPEX and OPEX, which make Nolans a very competitive project even in the face of Chinese producers, "which according to our Intel, probably puts us right in the middle of the cost curve in terms of producers inside and outside of China."

Japan discovers alternative domestic source for rare earths
Japan has been searching for an alternative source of rare earth elements since China halted exports in the second half of 2010. Last week, researchers at Tokyo University found massive amounts of rare earth deposits near Minami Tori island. Rare earth elements found included dysprosium, which is used in hybrid cars, and terbium, used in LCD televisions. The minerals must be extracted from the ocean floor. Researchers believe the minerals can be harvested using techniques similar to ocean oil drilling.SOURCES: NHK

Pele Mountain: Operating In Proven Uranium and Rare Earth Mining Camp
http://goldstocktrades.com/blog One uranium district completely ignored by the investment community today is Elliot Lake, Ontario. More than 300 million pounds of uranium were mined in Elliot Lake, Ontario by Rio Algom and Denison Mines. The Elliot Lake Mining Camp is known as the Uranium Capital of the World and was the only Canadian mine that commercially produced Rare Earth Oxides. The Elliot Lake mines were closed down in the 90's when rare earths were unknown and worth little and uranium was trading below $20 a pound. Being a past producing district of both uranium and rare earths gives an advantage to Pele Mountain Resources (GEM.V or GOLDF) a small junior miner, who will hopefully begin feasibility on their enormous and valuable Eco Ridge resource.  Operating in an established, past producing district with power, labor and infrastructure is crucial when evaluating the potential viability of mining development. Every twenty to thirty years Elliot Lake goes through a boom cycle. Even though the Athabasca region has higher grade uranium, mining and processing is a lot more challenging. Pele Mountain (GEM.V or GOLDF) may provide excellent leverage to uranium and rare earths for investors at these discounted levels. Elliot Lake is a proven rare earth and uranium mining district which is very supportive of Pele Mountain's Eco Ridge Mine. See the letter supporting the mine from the mayor and city council by clicking here... Pele has a proven commercial processing method unlike so many other rare earth juniors of recovering the valuable rare earths used in the latest green energy technologies such as wind turbines and high efficiency lighting. Pele has the Elliot Lake technical team led by Roger Payne who has the experience designing and developing efficient and safe production of critical clean energy metals such as uranium and rare earths.

Critical Minerals and the Politics of Clean Energy Production
n 11/26/18, The Energy Transition Lab welcomed Professor Roopali Phadke to speak about critical minerals and our mining future. Introduction: 0 - 1:25 Presentation: 1:25 - 33:40 Questions & Answers: 33:40+ Abstract: One of the grand challenges of the Anthropocene is to balance our global dream to electrify everything with the brutal fact that clean energy technologies depend on metals mined using nearly medieval techniques around the globe. This presentation examines the politics of securing critical minerals for climate solutions, in the context of a growing trade war with China. Dozens of new precious and rare earth mines are being prospected throughout the US to met the metal needs for electric vehicles, solar and wind technologies. These mines have also met growing opposition from Minnesota to Texas as communities express their concern for the devastating local contamination that might result. Roopali will discuss how we might solve this green energy paradox and the kinds of alternatives that are being promoted outside of the US. Bio for Dr. Phadke: Roopali Phadke is a Professor of Environmental Studies at Macalester College and a Visiting Scholar at IonE this Fall. Her teaching and research focus on energy and climate policy, citizen science, community based research and sustainable development initiatives. She is currently the principal investigator on a multiyear US National Science Foundation study titled "Mining Futures". With her Macalester colleague Christie Manning, she also directed a NOAA funded project on diversity and deliberation in urban climate adaptation called Ready & Resilient, which received a 2016 award from the Climate Adaptation Partnership and a 2018 Minnesota Campus Compact Presidents' Award. Roopali also serves on several local nonprofit boards including with Northern Lights/Northern Spark, Climate Generation and the Water Bar.
THANATIA -- The Destiny of the Earth's mineral resources
Is Gaia becoming Thanatia, a resource exhausted planet? For how long can our high-tech society be sustained in the light of declining mineral ore grades, heavy dependence on un-recycled critical metals and accelerated material dispersion? These are all root causes of future disruptions that need to be addressed today. This book presents a cradle-to-cradle view of the Earth's abiotic resources through a novel and rigorous approach based on the Second Law of Thermodynamics: heat dissipates and materials deteriorate and disperse. Quality is irreversibly lost. This allows for the assessment of such depletion and can be used to estimate the year where production of the main mineral commodities could reach its zenith. By postulating Thanatia, one acquires a sense of destiny and a concern for a unified global management of the planet's abiotic resource endowment. The book covers the core aspects of geology, geochemistry, mining, metallurgy, economics, the environment, thermodynamics and thermochemistry. It is supported by comprehensive databases related to mineral resources, including detailed compositions of the Earth's layers, thermochemical properties of over 300 substances, historical energy and mineral resource inventories, energy consumption and environmental impacts in the mining and metallurgical sector and world recycling rates of commodities.

MYSTERIOUS Abandoned Places in Russia
From abandoned gulag camps in Siberia to ghost towns along the black sea, here are mysterious abandoned places in Russia Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7.Marx Generator Hidden within a forest near Moscow is a strange, abandoned machine that might cause some confusion if you stumbled upon it one day. This massive configuration of tubes, and coils is what’s known as the Marx Generator and it’s a shockingly powerful machine. This strange device is capable of generating lightning bolts. At it’s peak performance, it was able to generate a discharge of lightning equal to all of the power generators in Russia, but for only a fraction of a second. It could create a bolt of lightning over 100 feet high, Why would the soviets build such a powerful, electrical device? This was to test how planes and other equipment would hold up against lightning strikes or to see how they would react against an electromagnetic pulse.The US had constructed a similar electronic pulse stimulator for the same reasons but it looks completely different! 6.Crimean Atomic Energy Station This unfinished construction project remains abandoned in Russia and it was set to be one of the bigger power plants in ukraine. After pripyat appeared to be a success until the meltdown, the Soviets thought they could build a similar one on the the Crimean peninsula but not all went according to planned. A town known as Shcholkine was built to house the workers who were building the project. However after the chernobyl power plant disaster, many scientists began to doubt the power plants design and started to double think its construction. Today the city and the site are completely abandoned. It’s better to not take a risk with the same design that contaminated a large part of the country. Other power plants have been abandoned due to association with the one in Chernobyl. 5.Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposit s at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. 4.Gagra, Russia Gagra is located along the Black sea and stretches 5 kilometers along the water. The subtropical climate made for a perfect location for Russians who wanted to escape the cold winters but with war in the area the town became quickly depopulated. In 1989 it had had a population of 26,636 but it was left as a lost paradise when hundreds of Georgian citizens were expelled from their homes and many were massacred, turning it into a complete ghost town. The war-torn land turned Ghagra from a beautiful tourist attraction to a grim dark place where many murders took place. Many still claim the land is still haunted to this day. 3.Lake Karachay Located in Russia’s Chelyabinsk Oblast Region, near the border of Kazakhstan, it’s been home to quite a few accidents, releasing a deadly cocktail of hazardous radioactive elements into the water. The lake has also been known to dry up and spread radioactive dust in the wind! Lake Karachay has been a dumping ground for one of the Soviet Union’s biggest Nuclear weapons facilities and it wouldn’t be a good idea to even get close. It’s currently listed as a near surface and dry nuclear waste storage facility and it appears from google maps at least that the pollution has caused the entire lake to dry up. 2. Moscow Downtown While there is the Alexanderplatz in Berlin and Eiffel tower in Paris, you really won’t see more than just one skyscraper in western european cities. Here in this photo, we see the modern skyscrapers that literally look like they're scraping the skies. Although some of these skyscrapers are mainly vacant at the moment, Russia’s financial district proves to be at the very least, an impressive architectural achievement. Wealthy Russians can afford to live in these luxury high rise buildings, and enjoy the escape from the crowded city center. These unusual weather conditions allowed for some astonishing photos, with a mix of purple, gold and red. Here in this photo we see the Ostankino Tower, which is a television tower that rises amazing 1772 feet in the sky! It’s currently the tallest structure in continental Europe and remains the eighth tallest building in the world. 1...

U.S. Bill HR 4883 discussed by rare earth market leaders
August 13, 2014 -- Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel, speaks to leaders from the rare earths sector in the United States to gauge their support for HR Bill 4883. On June 17 of this year, US House Representative, Steve Stockman, introduced Bill HR 4883 “to provide for the establishment of a National Rare-Earth Refinery Cooperative, and for other purposes. The Bill was referred to the House Committee on Armed Services. The Bill intends to reduce the United States’ reliance on Chinese rare earths by encouraging an increase in US production by facilitating the processing of thorium-bearing rare-earth concentrates as residual unprocessed and unrefined ores. The general point of the law is to encourage the US defense department to purchase rare earth minerals from domestic sources. Anthony Marchese, the Chairman for Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp (OTCQX: TRER) says that he has spoken to Congressman Stockman, who is from Houston. Anthony says that the Bill “neither helps not hurts us but it is very important in that it focuses the US Congress on the problem of trying to stimulate a domestic rare earth program, especially for defense.” Jack Lifton the Founding Principal of Technology Metals Research LLC considers HR 4883 as “the right idea but they’re going at it the wrong way.” Jack is concerned about the emphasis on thorium because “this is something that is not going to happen in any reasonable amount of time.” The main problem is that pegging the advancement of rare earth refining in the United States to an eventual adoption of thorium based nuclear reactors is “simply too long a shot…and thorium is not going to be a good driver for the future of rare earths.” Jim McKenzie, the President and CEO for Ucore Rare Metals (TSXV: UCU | OTCQX: UURAF), suggests that while it is a commendable effort to encourage the US rare earth industry -- Bill 4883 ‘is a little misguided”. In the case of Ucore’s Bokan project, it “just doesn’t apply”, as it has negligible amounts of thorium or uranium bearing ores. Jim advises the public to consider HR Bill 1600, sponsored by Senator Murkowski of Alaska, as it applies to both thorium rich and thorium free rare earth resources. James C. Kennedy, President of ThREE Consulting has worked on the development of HR 4883. James believes that the rare earth market is neither a ‘free market, a level playing field or the lowest cost producer”. James says that the Bill comes down to an effort to correct the current “legislative and regulatory disadvantage for US and Western producers of rare earths.” Kevin Cassidy, the CEO for US Rare Earths (OTCBB: UREE), supports any effort to encourage the mining and processing of rare earths in the United States. He says HR 4883 is clearly aimed at allowing “less dependency on China and more self reliance on North American production.” It also encourages manufacturers to return and invest in the United States.

Texas Rare Earths dramatically revises CAPEX and has largest Holmium deposit in the world
September 10, 2103 -- Tracy Weslosky Publisher of InvestorIntel, interviews Anthony Marchese, Chairman of Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TRER) and discusses Texas Rare Earth Resources' revised CAPEX from $2.1 billion to under $300 million, its shockingly low market cap, how the company's resource (with a NPV or over $1 billion) is comprised of "critical" rare earths, its 100-plus-year mine life, the status of the company's revised Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA), US REE sustainability, and how TRER's land and the China clay deposits are the only REE deposits in the world to use heap leach extraction. Tracy begins: Anthony, your company has a shockingly low market cap for what you have. Why don't you do our audience a huge favor and tell them what kind of opportunity they have with Texas Rare Earths Resources. AM: We have a NI 43-101-compliant resource, which was published last year, with a net present value (NPV) of over $1 billion. We're in the process of actually revising that PEA, originally projected to have a capital cost of $2.1 billion and still very profitable (to under $350 million). We are in the process of completing our (revised) PEA and it will be released shortly. TW: The speculative mine life for Texas Rare Earths is 100-plus years, correct? AM: Yes, that is correct and that's based only on Round Top Mountain (Texas Rare Earth Resources' flagship project in Hudspeth, Texas). We have three other mountains, which have not yet been fully developed. TW: With all of the current issues and debate surrounding (REE) sustainability in the US, I would think that the federal government would be looking to participate with Texas Rare Earths Resources. Can you tell me what's happening on the sustainability front and what kind of initiatives that you're currently working on? AM: Interestingly enough, our resource is comprised primarily of what is now referred to as "critical" rare earths. In the not-too-distant future we will be producing elements like yttrium (which is not technically a heavy rare earth, but critical rare earth), dysprosium, and holmium. We strongly believe the US federal government will have an interest in what we're doing -- and I'll leave it at that for now. TW: InvestorIntel published an article on the critical metal holmium and Gareth Hatch got in on the debate and commented that how significant your holmium deposit is. Based on our research Texas Rare Earth Resources has the largest deposit potential resource for holmium in the US. Is that correct? AM: I would venture to say -- according to Gareth and his statistics -- I would venture to say probably the world. Holmium is an interesting element. I believe, as have others in the field, that once you have supply that demand follows. There are lots of industries, lots of companies that would love to have this kind of supply, in order to develop products. And unfortunately, in our industry, supply first has to come online in order for demand to pick up. We strongly believe that we could be a major supplier of holmium, which primarily for the most part would be in defense programs for the foreseeable future. TW: You have a host rock for extraction that provides a metallurgical competitive advantage. Can you give a bit of an overview? AM: Sure. Our host rock is yttrofluorite. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only deposit in the world that is whose host rock is yttrofluorite. In more practical terms, what that means is that we will be able to use (and we have made this public) sulphuric acid to potentially heap leach the deposit. Heap leaching means extremely low costs. The only deposits to the best of our knowledge in the world that are heap leachable are the China clay deposits - and ours as well. TW: You have numerous elements that provide a competitive advantage. What other benchmarks can we expect to see? AM: We will get the (revised) PEA out. We believe that based on our PEA, which we have publicly stated, our CAPEX should come in anywhere from $150 to $350 million, down form $2.1 billion. We believe based on the strength of our upcoming PEA, we will have an edge with securing potential memorandums or offtake agreements with interested parties around the world. And we have received interest in that area as well. The next step would be to finish the bankable feasibility study as well as start the licencing procedure. And I can't emphasize this enough: being in the state of Texas is a huge advantage. The other advantage we have is that we are not on federal property. We are not under BLM management; we're not under Forest Service management. The state of Texas is our partner. And it's a great partner to have because what we owe them is a royalty. The way the state makes its money is for the mine to come into production. Texas is an incredible partner. Disclaimer: Texas Rare Earth Resources is an InvestorIntel advertorial member.

Unbelievable Places That Actually Exist
Top unreal places that really exist! These are the most unbelievable and surreal places to travel to and the most amazing places on Earth! 6. Eternal Flame Falls - This waterfall is in Chestnut Ridge Park in New York. Although Eternal Flame Falls isn’t massive, it has an interesting element, fire. Near the bottom of the waterfall, there is a tiny cavern that natural gas flows out of. When lit, the gas produces a flame that can be seen yearlong. Although, sometimes the fire goes out and has to be ignited again. Eternal Flame Falls wasn’t originally a popular tourist destination, but as it gained more recognition from the media, people started visiting it more often. It has also been studied by several geologists, who discovered that it emits more propane and ethane than other natural gas-secreting places. 5. Zhangye Danxia Landform - This stunning landscape is found in Linze County, China. These rocks are like Ogres; they have layers. They’re much more stunning than Shrek’s relatives, however. They appear velvety, but form pointed, jagged peaks. The striped, multicolored stone is due to the different types of minerals that were deposited throughout the landform’s sandstone base millions of years ago. The bright hues give Zhangye Danxia Landform the appearance of a rainbow. This whimsical place could be right out of a Dr. Seuss story and has often been named one of China’s most brilliant landforms. 4. Naica Mine - This world wonder is in Chihuahua, Mexico. It has gained a lot of recognition due to its colossal selenite crystals. In fact, within the mine, there is a cavern called The Cave of Crystals. It is about one thousand feet under the surface and encompasses some of the most substantial crystals ever discovered, the largest of which is nearly forty feet long, thirteen feet across, and weighs over fifty tons. These sparkling cylinders were formed by magma-heated, mineral-rich water that came into contact with chilled water. The cool water oxidized the sulfides, turning them into sulfates. Over the course of about five hundred thousand years, they crystallized, creating the breathtaking formations seen in the cave today.
