    Rare earths are a group of 17 elements with unique chemical, magnetic and luminescent properties crucial for the functioning of much of today’s high technology equipment, including MRIs, lap-top computers, hybrid vehicles and LEDs. They also have important applications in the defence industry. China is the dominant supplier of rare earth elements (REEs), meeting at least 85% of global demand. In 2010, REEs were splashed across the front pages of newspapers when it significantly reduced rare earth export quotas and temporarily suspended their shipment to Japan. Consumers quickly recognised that diversity of reliable supply is just as important as price and quality, and there is a concerted effort to replace, reduce and recycle REEs. So are REEs best understood as simple commodities, or as...

    Rare earth metals are a collection of 17 chemical elements that are key to the production of a long list of modern-day technologies. Despite their name, the elements are relatively plentiful in the earth's crust. However, because of their geochemical properties, the elements are not often found in concentrated forms that are economically viable to extract. Mining them is not only complex but costly, so many countries are cautious. China produces more than 95 per cent of the elements for the world's technology industry. The rest is supplied by the US, Estonia, India, Malaysia and Brazil. That may change, however, as demand for rare-earth metals rises for use in products such as smartphones, electric and hybrid cars, common computer monitors and televisions. Al Jazeera's Melissa ...

Although it is a precious mineral resource, rare earth imposes great dangers of pollution. Recently, French media reported from Baotou. Entitled "In China, rare earths are killing villages", the report highlighted massive environmental pollution. It revealed the impact of the production of rare earth minerals on local residents, animals and land. The following is our report. French media 'Le Monde' reported from Baotou, stating that by aerial viewpoint, it looks like a large lake, fed by numerous tributaries. On site, it is actually an opaque discharge covering an area of 10 km2. Surrounding the industrial plants producing 17 minerals are reject waste waters loaded with chemicals. There are no fish or algae The Le Monde article introduced that rock from Bayan obo rare earth ore mine, located 120 kilometers away, are sent here for treatment. The concentration of rare earth in the rocks is very low and must be separated and purified by hydrometallurgical processes and acid baths. In the effluent basin are exist all sorts of toxic chemicals and radioactive elements such as thorium. Ingestion of these toxins causes cancer of the pancreas, lung and blood. A pungent odor exudes within radius of 10 miles. Local villagers have been suffering from cancer. Rows of brown houses in the village have been reduced to rubble. Sichuan environmentalist Chen Yunfei indicates that rare earth refining process causes great environmental pollution and destruction. People are unaware of the specific dangers of this project, and the specialists involved in the decision-making. Chen Yunfei: "Some officials only work on the image projects for profit. They relocate once the money has been made. Some officials collude with the business, caring about nothing but profit, leaving the mess for the public." According to local residents, Baotou used to be a vast grassland. In 1958 the state enterprise Baotou Iron and Steel Company began producing rare earth production. By the end of 1980, locals found that the plant was in trouble. Last year, China Environment News reported that Baotou Iron and Steel Group's tailing dam leakage has caused damage to five surrounding villages. It has affected more than 3000 farmers, and ruined more than 3,295 Acres of farmland. Ma Peng, former Director of the Baotou Rare Earth Research Institute, indicated that due to the lack of a barrier below the tailing dam, the mining waste is directly discharging into the Yellow River. The discharge is at a rate of 300m per year. The residents also said that further pollution has been caused by other industries and thermal power plants. These industries followed rare earth production by the Baotou Iron and Steel Company. Local residents have to breathe air saturated with sulfuric acid and coal dust. Coal dust is airbourne around the houses. Cows, horses, chickens and goats are being killed by these poisons. The locals have fled, and Xinguang Sancun village has now decreased from 2000 villagers to 300. Every family is hit with illness. After 20 years of complaints to the local government, the villagers have finally won promises of financial compensation. These have only been partially fulfilled. Miss Hao, a resident of Baotou: "We all know. The government is too dark. No one cares about the people, whether they live or die, not to mention the pollution." For many years, there have been calls for attention for the issue of Baotou tailing dam discharging thorium radiation to Baotou and into the Yellow River. The hazards and pollution caused by the Baotou tailing dam have never been effectively alleviated. Environmentalist Chen Yunfei: "This is an investment that has hurt several generations. It has polluted the whole environment. This high cost investment ought to be condemned. Our future generations are going to suffer for it." China Environment News indicated that Baotou is located in the stratum fracture zone. In the event of a major earthquake or large-scale rainfall, the rupture of the tailing dam will threaten the surrounding five villages, as well as tens of thousands of lives of the Baotou Iron and Steel workers. If the tailings flow into the Yellow River, it will cause serious pollution to the river. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

They're taking powder and shipping it to China, and it comes back as a magnet, or an alloy, or a bolt-on component." - Jim Kennedy To address this issue, contact your legislators to support H.R.4883 https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 Why can't Molycorp, Lynas or any other 'western' rare earth company succeed? China's production and market advantage in Rare Earth Elements (REE) is largely the result of NRC and IAEA "Source Material" regulations with unintended consequences. Source Material: Materials containing any ratio or combination of Thorium and Uranium above .05%. Producing or holding these materials within the regulatory threshold (.05%) requires extensive and wide-ranging licensing, storage, transportation, remediation disposal and compliance costs, including prohibitive liability and bonding issues. Consequently any potential supplier of byproduct / co-product rare earth resources that would be designated as "source material' disposes of these valuable resources to avoid liability and compliance issues. NRC / IAEA regulations regarding "Source Material" played a key roll in undermining the economic viability of all 'western' rare earth producers and are a critical factor in China's current 'market advantage'. Producers like Molycorp and Lynas, with low Thorium deposits, can never compete with China. Resources are abundant and available: U.S mining companies currently mine as much as 50% of global Rare Earth Elements demand every year. But these resources are diverted in tailings lakes or are redistributed back into the host ore body, due to NRC and IAEA regulations defining Monazite and other Thorium bearing rare earth resources as "Source Material". H.R. 4883 would solve the "Thorium Problem" by creating a federally chartered multinational Thorium Energy and Industrial Products Corporation ("Thorium Bank"). Privately funded and operated, this would decouple thorium from rare earth production. The Thorium Corporation would also have Congressional Authority to develop Thorium energy systems and industrial products. Environmental regulations are not scaled back... rather this enables thorium to be stored safely & securely, rather then being treated as "waste". https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/hr4883 H.R. 4883 thus also addresses the U.S. Weapons Systems current 100% Dependency on China for Rare Earths. http://thoriumenergyalliance.com/downloads/TEAC6/USWeaponsChinese.pdf 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. Federal Regulations require that these materials be melted in the U.S. Most of these materials are utilized in rare earth alloys, magnets and components in the defense industry. The bill does NOT reclassify thorium. It does NOT alter current environmental protection. It simply resolves "The Thorium Problem" which cripples United States domestic rare earth mining, processing and value-adding processes.

The analysis found 730 years' worth of dysprosium, used for the magnets in hybrid cars, and 780 years' worth of yttrium, used in the manufacture of lasers, based on estimated demand. The discovery of the deposits could help ease the world's dependence on China, …which accounts for nearly 90 percent of all rare earths production. Beijing's dominant position has resulted in price spikes and shortages in the past. The researchers say they have also come up with the technology to allow the resources to be extracted efficiently.

Rare earths are a group of 17 elements with unique chemical, magnetic and luminescent properties crucial for the functioning of much of today’s high technology equipment, including MRIs, lap-top computers, hybrid vehicles and LEDs. They also have important applications in the defence industry. China is the dominant supplier of rare earth elements (REEs), meeting at least 85% of global demand. In 2010, REEs were splashed across the front pages of newspapers when it significantly reduced rare earth export quotas and temporarily suspended their shipment to Japan. Consumers quickly recognised that diversity of reliable supply is just as important as price and quality, and there is a concerted effort to replace, reduce and recycle REEs. So are REEs best understood as simple commodities, or as strategic resources that can be used as tools of statecraft? And can Australia play a part in the development of alternative reliable sources of rare earths? To help understand the strategic importance of REEs the National Security College and Crawford School of Public Policy welcome two global experts in the field.

Rare earth metals are a collection of 17 chemical elements that are key to the production of a long list of modern-day technologies. Despite their name, the elements are relatively plentiful in the earth's crust. However, because of their geochemical properties, the elements are not often found in concentrated forms that are economically viable to extract. Mining them is not only complex but costly, so many countries are cautious. China produces more than 95 per cent of the elements for the world's technology industry. The rest is supplied by the US, Estonia, India, Malaysia and Brazil. That may change, however, as demand for rare-earth metals rises for use in products such as smartphones, electric and hybrid cars, common computer monitors and televisions. Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan, reporting from Baotou in China, examines the importance of these elements.

It is not difficult to mine rare earth elements. But it is difficult to extract them economically. This video was filmed in front of the shaft that gives access to the Research & Educational Underground Mine "Reiche Zeche" in Freiberg, Germany . The interview was made in the context of a rare earth element exhibition that was hosted in 2017 at Terra Mineralia in Freiberg.

Thanks for the thulium: http://onyxmet.com/ Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Thoisoi?ty=h Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thoisoi2 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/thoisoi/ Do not repeat the experiments shown in this video! So, today I will tell you about the rarest among the so-called rare earth metals - thulium, however absurd it may sound, the rarest among the rare. And yes, with the city of Tula this metal is not connected in any way, unless the Tula gingerbread actually contains lanthanides. Nonetheless, in the periodic table the metal thulium is indeed featured in the row of those lanthanides, under the number 69. Thulium is very difficult to obtain, as only one part of this metal can be found in 100 trillion pieces of the earth's crust. Even the famous scientist Charles James needed to go through about 15,000 purification steps in order to get a more or less pure thulium bromate from an ore, the role of which can be taken by gadolinite or, for example, monazite. Many of you may have noticed that in almost all of the videos about lanthanides I mention all the same minerals and it's not just a coincidence. The fact is that often in such minerals one can find a whole gallery of lanthanide compounds that often accompany each other in natural sources and show the same chemical properties due to the similar structure of the electron shell. So it is not that easy to separate them from each other. By the way, approximately 80% of all the lanthanide deposits are located in China, as is the production of compounds from these elements. But let's return to thulium. From the outside this element looks like a shiny metal, resistant to oxidation in air. This piece of Thulium was made back in the year 1990, and since that time it almost did not oxidize. Because of its rarity, thulium now has a fairly high price, for 10 grams you may pay above $100. What’s also of interest is the structure of this Thulium sample, consisting of the so-called metal dendrites obtained by sublimation of a metal in a vacuum. According to its chemical properties, thulium hardly differs from other lanthanides, although in comparison with, say, neodymium, thulium is less active. This element also dissolves well in hydrochloric acid where it forms thulium chloride - a substance with a slightly greenish tinge. The same unusual green color can be seen in the sparks of burning thulium in air, which is quite unusual, since the sparks of other lanthanides are usually white. When the metal thulium burns in air, an oxide of this metal is formed. Nowadays, thulium compounds are added to phosphors, which allow them to glow in the ultraviolet in blue color, this property is used for the protection of euro banknotes from counterfeiters. Thulium compounds are added to the ink for the notes which under the ultraviolet light makes those particles glow in blue. The common properties of thulium with the other lanthanide metals can be seen from the behavior of thulium chloride in the presence of vanadates or tungstates, when the solutions of these substances come into contact, the insoluble precipitates of thulium compounds form. On the application, the non-radioactive isotope of thulium 169 finds its place in the manufacture of lasers used in surgery. For example, a solid-state laser using aluminum-yttrium garnet with thulium impurities is used to treat prostatitis and remove tumors. Though a more interesting application finds the radioactive isotope thulium 170, that emits a soft gamma, it is used in the production of compact sources of X-ray radiation which are used for obtaining dental images, and in searching for microcracks in mechanical and electronic devices. The miniature thulium devices are suitable for X-ray diagnostics in the tissues and organs that are difficult, and sometimes impossible to scan, with the conventional X-ray machines. With the help of thulium 170 absolutely inconspicuous letters and symbolic signs were found on the bronze lining of the Assyrian helmet of the 9th century BC. The helmet was wrapped in film and was shined through from within with soft gamma rays of thulium. On the developed film what appeared was the worn-out signs ... The only drawback of such devices is that the isotope thulium 170 is quite expensive, and has a half-life of about 170 days, meaning devices using this isotope are short-lived. Due to its rarity and high price, thulium is currently not so widespread in application as the other lanthanides, but in the end it can be said that this metal is quite unique, the rarest among the rare.

In 2010 the commies in China in a dispute with Japan over the Senkaku Islands placed an embargo of sorts against Japan. China reduced their export and raised the price of rare earth elements (REE) exported to Japan. These minerals are essential in the production of many electronic devices such as computers, cell phones, etc. China being the world’s number one exporter of this element. The Japanese then decided to explore an alternative source. They recently discovered a supply of rare earth elements with a supply to last for about four-hundred to seven-hundred years. These minerals were located off the Japanese atoll of the Ogasawara Islands. These minerals fall within the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of those islands. The commies in Beijing with agreement from the South Koreans are claiming an atoll does not enjoy an Exclusive Economic Zone, thus making the minerals available to any nation. Really? What about China stealing atolls in the South China Sea and claiming Exclusive Economic Zone off those stolen atolls? Hypocrisy and no consistency by the commies. Oops there is consistency by the Chinese in that they are consistent in not being consistent. 2010 China / Japan rare earth video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iR9UbPZmx68 Related articles: https://mainichi.jp/english/articles/20180411/p2a/00m/0na/014000c http://menafn.com/1096700695/Japan-bolsters-radar-at-outlying-island-as-China-steps-up-carrier-activity https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/12/japan-rare-earths-huge-deposit-of-metals-found-in-pacific.html China and South Korea oppose recognizing the islands as islands: http://www.scmp.com/news/asia/east-asia/article/2141445/discovery-rare-earth-minerals-japan-coast-secures-780-years?utm_source=Yahoo&utm_medium=partner&utm_campaign=contentexchange https://sg.news.yahoo.com/discovery-rare-earth-minerals-off-082157853.html Rare Earth element: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rare-earth_element Link to Texas Daddy store: http://texas-daddy.shop-pro.jp/ トニー・マラーノ テキサスパパ 토니 마라 노
