The term rare earth is a misnomer arising from the rarity . of the minerals from which they were originally isolated (Figures 1 and 2). In contrast REEs are relatively plentiful in the Earth's crust having an overall crustal abundance of 9.2 ppm (Rudnick et …

A procedure for geochemical interpretation of rare-earth abundances in rocks and minerals is presented. The ratio of each rare-earth abundance in the sample to the corresponding value in chondritic meteorites (on logarithmic scale) is plotted as a function of atomic number Z.Normalization to chondrites compensates for element-to-element irregularities and reveals …

name 'rare earth elements' come to be associated solely with the specific set of elements it denotes today. In fact, in terms of their overall abundance in the Earth's crust, the REE are not particularly rare. On average, as a proportion of the Earth's continental crust, Cerium (Ce) is the most abundant, at 43 parts per million (ppm),

Rare earth elements (REE) include the lanthanide series elements (La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu) plus Sc and Y. Currently these metals have become very critical to several modern technologies ranging from cell phones and televisions to LED light bulbs and wind turbines.


The abundance of the rare earth elements (REEs) in Earth's crust has become the intense focus of study in recent years due to the increasing societal demand for REEs, their increasing utilization in modern-day technology, and the …


VanTongeren and Mathez, 2012) distinguished two layers ("lower and upper sections") at the top of the Bushveld Complex that we interpreted as the crystallization products of immiscible siliceous and Fe-rich liquids formed during the final stages of magmatic differentiation.The interpretation was in part based on our discovery of distinct differences in the rare earth element (REE) …


China is the world's leading rare earth element (REE) producer and hosts a variety of deposit types. Carbonatite- related REE deposits, the most significant deposit type, include two giant deposits presently being mined in China, Bayan Obo and Maoniuping, the first and third largest deposits of this type in the world, respectively. The carbonatite-related deposits host the …


is known as the rare-earth abundance peak at around A = 165 [18,19]. Another mechanism producing rare-earth nuclei and its abundance peak in the r process is fission cycling from heavier nuclei [20]. The impact of individual nuclear masses on calculated r-process abundances can be quantified using a so-called

Rare earth minerals occur in the form of bastnaesite, monazite and xenotime and some other minerals. As shown in the U.S. Geological Survey, Mineral Commodity Summaries, February 2014, REE reserves worldwide total 140 million tonnes. They are distributed mainly in China (55 million tonnes), the United States, India, Australia, Brazil, Malaysia, Russia, Egypt, Canada, …


The JYFLTRAP double Penning trap at the Ion Guide Isotope Separator On-Line facility has been used to measure the atomic masses of 13 neutron-rich rare-earth isotopes. Eight of the nuclides, $^{161}mat{Pm}, ^{163}mat{Sm}, ^{164,165}mat{Eu}, ^{167}mat{Gd}$, and $^{165,167,168}mat{Tb}$, were measured for the first time. The …


The rare earths are a relatively abundant group of 17 elements composed of scandium, yttrium, and the lanthanides. The elements range in crustal abundance from cerium, the 25th most abundant element of the 78 common elements in the Earth's crust at 60 parts per million, to thulium and lutetium, the least abundant rare-earth elements at about 0 ...

rare-earth element - rare-earth element - Abundance, occurrence, and reserves: As noted above, the rare earths are fairly abundant, but their availability is somewhat limited, primarily because their concentration levels in many ores are quite low (less than 5 percent by weight). An economically viable source should contain more than 5 percent rare earths, unless they are …

The concentrations of the rare earth elements (REEs) in apatite from a 600-m-thick sequence toward the top of the Bushveld Complex, South Africa, have previously been published; they show two ranges of compositions in a lower section and an upper section. The data were interpreted in terms of liquid immiscibility.


The rare earth elements (REEs) are the elements from lanthanum to lutetium (atomic numbers 57–71) in the periodic table. The REEs are further subdivided on the basis of their atomic number and mass: La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm [N.B. promethium is unstable and not present as a natural element], Sm and Eu being described as light rare-earth elements ...
