2010 9 23 China mines 93 percent of the worlds rare earth minerals, and more than 99 percent of the worlds supply of some of the most prized rare earths, which sell for several hundred dollars a pound. Notice also that while the Mountain Pass isnt currently mining, they are processing, presumably using previously mined stocks at site.
2017 1 24 Rare Earth Oxides are used in mature markets (such as catalysts, glassmaking and metallurgy), which account for 59% of the total worldwide consumption of rare earth elements, and in newer, high growth markets (such as battery alloys, ceramics, and permanent magnets), which account for 41% of the total worldwide consumption of rare earth elements.
Chinese rare earths mining, minerals could help to realise the vision of establishing Western Australia as a global hub for downstream lithium processing. John Feary reports Guangdong Province, China, its rare earth trading subsidiary and increasing capacity in its mining services division.
Environmentalists, however, are concerned about the pollution generated by rare earth mining and processing. Until the late 1990s, most rare earth minerals were processed in the United States. But as the U.S. government began to enact more environmental regulations, the
2010 10 28 The New York Times reports the Commerce Ministry saying that [C]hina will continue to export rare earth to the world, and at the same time, in order to conserve exhaustible resources and maintain sustainable development, China will also continue imposing relevant restrictions on the mining, manufacture, and export of rare earths.

Brigadier General John Adams, US Army (Retired) Since 2002, the key US technology and defense sectors have been steadily 100% reliant on China for all imported rare earth materials. USGS, 2018 Mineral Commodity Summaries
Rare earths are one of the few categories of products that have avoided US tariffs despite threats last year by the Trump administration. China has put its own retaliatory tariffs on US produced rare earth elements and several categories of these minerals are set
2017 10 16 We now know the materials of interest for rare earth (and ferrite) magnets. If we accept that rare earth magnets are very important for modern devices are often required for these devices then dependable supply at acceptable prices should be a major concern of industry.
