Excerpts from some recent articles --- U.S. Dependence on China's Rare Earth: Trade War Vulnerability
RARE EARTH elements are used in a wide range of consumer products, from iPhones to electric car motors, as well as military jet engines, satellites, and lasers.
Rising tensions between the United States and China have sparked concerns that Beijing could use its dominant position as a supplier of rare earths for leverage in the trade war between the two global economic powers.
China supplied 80% of the rare earths imported by the United States from 2014 to 2017.
The U.S. Commerce Department earlier in June recommended the United States take urgent steps to boost domestic rare earth production
, warning that a halt in Chinese supplies could disrupt global supply chains.
The U.S. Defense Department is also seeking federal funds to increase domestic rare earth production
. Senators in May introduced legislation to encourage the sector's development. Pentagon in Talks with Australia on Rare Earths Plant 
The U.S. Department of Defense is in talks with Australia to host a facility that would process rare earth minerals, part of an effort to reduce reliance on China for the specialized materials used in military equipment, a senior American official said.
“We’re concerned about any fragility in the supply chain and especially where an adversary controls the supply,” Ellen Lord, the Pentagon’s undersecretary of defense for acquisition and sustainment...
The Pentagon update came after the U.S. said earlier this year that it would look to Australia and Canada to develop rare earths reserves
around the world to reduce the global reliance on China.
Australia’s Lynas Corp is the world’s largest rare earths miner and processor outside of China and plans to have an initial processing plant up within the next four years as well as developing a plant in Texas
Rare earth minerals need to be processed after they are extracted from the ground. There is only one operational rare earths mine in the United States
, though the country has no processing facilities
...and now we find out that Quest just secured a patent for... what?... rare earth ore processing!
