Of course we can’t avoid the fact, California seem a pioneer in earth rare projects.

Refiners outside of China that you can invest in and in the U S is a rare bird indeed. Only one I can find is a Canadian company with the refinery in Michigan.

The new U.S. National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2010, which was signed into law by President Obama, shows that the Federal government has now recognized the value and importance of a domestic supply chain for rare earths. U.S. Rare Earths, Inc. is the only domestic “completely American owned” rare earth mining development venture that fits into that legislation.

The second problem is the legal battles over who owns the Joint Venture. The third issue is the company’s links with some “colorful” characters. And the fourth issue is the Company’s lack of disclosure on who are its key shareholders.I look forward to the company resolving these issues
