Rare Metal Blog: DC ‘Leak’: Catalyst for Chinese Rare Earth Supply vs. US National Security Debate

The Obama organization’s argument against China’s fare approaches on uncommon earth minerals isn’t just about business concerns — it is about national security. I just got back from the TREM Critical Metals Summit about Washington’s approach on uncommon earths and it was “released” that a DC report was expected that would invalidate the requirement for making self reliance on uncommon earth gracefully and would rather refer to worldwide relationship and the advantages of Chinese financial matters in providing savvy REEs. Rare Metal Blog

A report discharged in February 2011 called Rare Earth Metals and U.S. National Security, by the American Security Project notes:

In spite of the fact that the Pentagon asserts that the U.S. just uses 5% of the world’s flexibly of uncommon earth metals for safeguard purposes, the U.S. is completely subject to China for the creation of a portion of its most remarkable weapons.

The U.S. doesn’t follow uncommon earth metals in its weapons frameworks or stages. In this way a lack of uncommon earths will influence the quality and preparation of the U.S. military until as of now utilized guard frameworks are not, at this point in activity.
