The growth of prices for rare earth metals in 2007 was due to the following reasons:
— export duties on rare earth metals from China,
— reduction in licensed export from China,
— increased demand in China for REE for the production of magnets,
suspended exports from the Inner Mongolia at the time of construction
dam
— disruption of supplies from Sichuan province, in connection with the restructuring of the mining industry and the concentration of rights in the hands of one company, won the tender.
Continues to grow global demand for separated REE and metals, and on the mixture for the production of magnets, special glass, catalysts and batteries. Trends in the global market is favourable for suppliers of REE, world refining capacity will meet the global demand for REE.
