Rare earth mining is extracted from ores and minerals as they are not often found concentrated in mineable deposits.

REEs are almost always found in conjunction with significant radioactivity as these ores and minerals naturally contain Uranium and Thorium.

There are 17 rare earth elements existing namely, Scandium, Yttrium, Lanthanum, Cerium, Praseodymium, Neodymium, Promethium, Samarium, Europium, Gadolinium, Terbium, Dysprosium, Holmium, Erbium, Thulium, Ytterbium and Lutetium.

Around the same time that was happening, China was investing deeply in its own rare earth metal mining and production and succeeded. From the late 1990s to 2010, China became the dominant player, and it now controls the majority of the market.

Clean energy often still demands dirty tech.
