Rectangular Base Magnets with Knobs. Painted with bright blue enamel, these heavy duty base magnets feature durable steel construction. Sturdy handles allow easy repositioning, or use as a retrieving magnet to pick up small tools and scattered nuts and bolts.
South Africa has approximately one million tonnes of contained rare earth ores but deposits are largely scattered, as such they are largely held by a multitude of junior miners who do not have sufficient extraction technologies.
DL As you know, Peter, rare earths are not exactly rare, with respect to their preponderance in the earth's crust, but they tend to be scattered. You don't find a lump of neodymium the way
The unusual properties of the rare earths make them of increasing interest in a growing number of highly important areas, the latest being superconducting. Valuable work on them is scattered throughout the literature of chemistry, physics, metallurgy, crystallography, and mining.

Rare-earth elements, including neodymium and yttrium, are not actually rare more common, in fact, in the Earth's crust than copper and tin. But, because they are scattered widely, and hard to separate from their surrounding ores, mining and refining them is difficult. Rare earths are valuable, too.
DURING LATE SUMMER, 1955, the writer spent a week in the western part of Arizona examining rare-earth mineral deposits in Mohave County. Occurrences of rare-earth minerals long have been reported from several pegmatite deposits in the Cerbat and Aquarius Ranges, north and southeast of
These are then related to effective scattering operators which can be expressed in terms of the angular momentum J in rare earths, making it possible to extend the results of calculations at zero temperature and zero crystal field to finite temperatures and crystal fields.
China has cut exports of rare-earth metals to Japan, Europe, and the United States, undermining high-tech manufacturers that rely on the minerals for wind turbines and missile-guidance systems.
What is the intensity of scattered radiation perpendicular to and 1 meter from the patient, compared to the useful beam at the patient's surface? 0.10% Protective devices such as lead aprons function to protect the user from scattered radiation Several factors are used when determining the appropriate lead thickness in walls.
A Political Economy of China's Export Restrictions on Rare Earth Elements Frank Potheny Kilian Finkz April 20, 2015 Abstract We investigate why governments restrict exports of exotic raw materials taking rare earth elements as a case study. Trade restrictions on exotic materials do not have immediate macroeconomic e ects.
Rare earth elements are not actually rare. They're relatively abundant in the Earth's crust, but so thinly scattered that only rarely are they sufficiently concentrated in (economically viable by Western standards) mineable ore deposits. Additionally, mining REEs can be environmentally hazardous.
Rare-earth elements (REEs) are not scarce but scattered, meaning they typically can't be found in economically exploitable concentrations. They have become increasingly sought after, however, since they are used in high-strength magnets, electric motors, and consumer goods like
A race is on to restart production of rare earth metals in the U.S. in the name of national security, possibly with federal subsidies.
'Rare earth elements' are a group of 17 elements present in the periodic table (15 Lanthanoids, Scandium and Yttrium). Scandium and Yttrium are chemically similar and
Rare Earth Element prospects around Gifford Creek, Yangibana Back-scattered (BSE) image showing ferrocolumbite (grey) and monazite (white) grains from Gifford Creek carbonatite complex, Yangibana Total Magnetic Intensity image showing Mt Weld carbonatite
Fortunately, the conditions that make helium-3 rare on Earth are absent on the moon, where it has accumulated on the surface and been mixed with the debris layer of dust and rock, or regolith, by
RADIATION EFFECTS IN RARE-EARTH PERMANENT MAGNETS R. Cost*, R. D. Brown*, A. L. Giorgi*, and J. T. Stanley Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM 87545 where scattered radiation is present, the permanent magnets must be capable of resisting decay in remanence due to this radiation. Radiation produced
Pieces of magnetite can be found scattered on or near the surface of the earth, and occasionally, one will be magnetized. These naturally occurring magnets are called lodestones.
THE discovery of planets orbiting other stars should not raise hopes that alien life exists, an astronomer in the US claims. Jupiter-sized planets have come to light around more than a dozen nearby
