Alkaline igneous complexes host deposits of rare earth elements (REE) which represent one of the most economically important resources of heavy REE and Yttrium (Y) The hosts are differentiated rocks ranging from nepheline syenites and trachytes to peralkaline granites These complexes usually

Rare Earth Deposits of North America Stephen B C astor Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology University of Nevada Reno Nevada USA Abstract Rare earth elements (REE) have been mined in North America since 1885 when placer monazite was pro-duced in the southeast USA Since the 1960s however most North American REE have come from a carbon-

Summary: The problem of processing of the rare-earth metal ores of the weathering crust of the Tomtor deposits (in Yakutia) has been discussed in this article The ores of this deposit due to their fluctuating composition are extremely complicated They are characterised by fine mineral particles of sizes of less than 10 m

2 1 Bastnaesite Bastnaesite is a rare earth fluorocarbonate mineral RE(CO 3)F (Kanazawa and Kamitani 2006) which predominantly contains light REEs 1 After physical upgrading bastnaesite ore concentrates contain between 40 and 60 wt% REE (Feng et al 2013 McGill 2000) One of the main concerns in past bastnaesite processing technologies was the inability to extract REE

Abstract: Alkaline igneous complexes host deposits of rare earth elements (REE) which represent one of the most economically important resources of heavy REE and Yttrium (Y) The hosts are differentiated rocks ranging from nepheline syenites and trachytes to peralkaline granites These complexes usually occur in continental within-plate tectonic settings

Geologic and Environmental Characteristics of Rare Earth

Geologic and Environmental Characteristics of Rare Earth Element Deposit Types Found in the United States Rare Earth Elements • Less abundant than common rock-forming elements • More abundant than precious metals • More or less abundant than base metals and metalloids Geochemical Controls in Nature Lanthanide Contraction • Ionic radius decreases with

Monazite sand from Brazil was first noticed in sand carried in ship's ballast by Carl Auer von Welsbach in the 1880s Von Welsbach was looking for thorium for his newly invented incandescent mantles Monazite sand was quickly adopted as the thorium source and became the foundation of the rare-earth industry

Rare earth elements are not particularly rare in the earth's crust – they have an average concentration of up to 220 ppm which is much higher than far more "common" minerals including copper and zinc The difficulty is that only rarely are REE's found concentrated enough to form an economic ore deposit

Between 2005 and 2006 Astro Mining explored the western portion of the Mt Clere Rare Earth Project for diamonds Nineteen discrete primitive alkaline lamprophyres were located during their search which involved stream sediment sampling and geological surveys

Rare-earth element - Rare-earth element - Hydrides: The rare-earth metals readily react with hydrogen to form RH2 and by raising the hydrogen pressure the trivalent R metals (except for scandium) also form the RH3 phase Both the RH2 and RH3 phases are nonstoichiometric (that is the numbers of atoms of the elements present cannot be expressed as a ratio of small

Rare-earth minerals are usually found in association with alkaline to peralkaline igneous complexes in pegmatites associated with alkaline magmas and in or associated with carbonatite intrusives Perovskite mineral phases are common hosts to rare-earth elements within the alkaline complexes

Studying the speciation and mineral-fluid partitioning of the rare earth elements (REE) allows us to delineate the key processes responsible for the formation of economic REE mineral deposits in natural systems Hydrothermal REE-bearing calcite is typically hosted in carbonatites and alkaline rocks such as the giant Bayan Obo REE deposit in China and potential REE deposits

A rare-earth element (REE) or rare-earth metal (REM) as defined by IUPAC is one of a set of seventeen chemical elements in the periodic table specifically the fifteen lanthanides as well as scandium and yttrium Scandium and yttrium are considered rare-earth elements because they tend to occur in the same ore deposits as the lanthanides and

Rare earth element (REE) orebodies are typically associated with alkaline igneous rocks or develop as placer or laterite deposits Here we describe an economically important heavy (H)REE mineralization type that is entirely hydrothermal in origin with no demonstrable links to magmatism The mineralization occurs as numerous xenotime-rich vein and breccia orebodies

Alkaline igneous complexes host deposits of rare earth elements (REE) which represent one of the most economically important resources of heavy REE and Yttrium (Y) The hosts are differentiated rocks ranging from nepheline syenites and trachytes to peralkaline granites These complexes usually occur in continental within-plate tectonic settings associated with rifts

Abstract This chapter gives an overview of the major and minor ore minerals of the rare earths and of the related major ore deposits As most of the rare earths are mined in China the impression may arise that ore deposits of these metals occur in few other places on Earth

Rare Earth Ore Classification Classification of ores related to alkaline rocks is also controversial Table 2 presents a relatively simple classification that follows analogous categories for deposits related to nonalkaline igneous rocks Some of the more unusual alkaline rocks that host or are related to REE ores are carbonatite and phoscorite igneous rocks composed principally of
