Published: Tuesday, 20 June 2017
The Chinese city of Baotou is planning to solve the problems of low output and inadequate recycling at its Bayan Obo mine.
At a seminar organised by the Baotou municipal government to
discuss green development of Bayan Obo, held in Beijing on 10
June, delegates heard that the rare earth reserve in this mine
accounts for 80% of China’s resource but the
recovery rate is low.
