The increasing demand for the rare earth elements (REEs) is driven by new technologies, including computers, automobiles and other advanced technology applications. Currently, bastnasesite, monazite and xenotime are three major commercial rare earth minerals throughout the world. China is the biggest rare earth producer, however, because of the restriction of Chinese rare earth export, the rest of the world has been to develop proper rare earth resources to replace supply from China.
