Jack Lifton commented in preparation for Critical Materials Corner: "The US domestic markets use some 12,000 tons per year of rare earth permanent magnet enabled components. Nearly all of which are made in China. To decouple the US magnet market from China will require the reconstruction of a number of companies in each stage of the total domestic rare earth permanent magnet supply chain. Producing mines, chemical processors capable of separating mixed rare earths into individual rare earths; specialized metallurgical concerns capable of turning rare earth chemicals into metals and magnet alloys; and last, but not least, magnet fabricators must be organized and put into production. No one company can do this at the levels required even for the US military. There will be dozens of companies involved. Do not, for a minute, believe that any one venture could supply the nation's needs for rare earth permanent magnets."

USA Rare Earth is a private company earning and acquiring from Texas Mineral Resources Corp. (OTCQB: TMRC) an 80% operating joint venture interest in The Round Top Heavy Rare Earth and Critical Minerals Project located in Hudspeth County, West Texas. Round Top hosts a wide range of critical heavy rare earth elements, high-tech metals, including lithium, zirconium, hafnium, and beryllium.

Vital Metals (ASX: VML) is an explorer and developer with highly prospective mineral projects, focusing on the world-class rare earth Nechalacho project in Canada. It plans to commence production at Nechalacho in 2021 and aims to produce a minimum 5,000 tonnes of contained REO by 2025.
