I think it would be bothThis story is kind of ambiguous are they looking to phase out the use of rare earths or just looking to the U.S. mines to reduce our dependency on China?
All of those COULD be used but that does not mean they NEED to be used. The millitary and cellular phone industries would be much more impacted than EV's. Our millitary is rather scared of being forced to source everything from china.I wonder if the U.S. really has reserves of these specific metals scandium,yttrium,lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium etc. Does anyone have any knowledge of what rare earths are used for in the production of EV's or cars in general?
