Presently China produces about 95 percent of global rare earth supplies. However the nation says that excessive production is depleting its reserves and damaging its environment. While China may be looking to lower its production -- and perhaps preserve rare earth prices -- a World Trade Organization (WTO) panel recently ruled that China violated global trading rules by curbing exports of raw materials such as bauxite, coke, magnesium, manganese and zinc, which inflated prices and gave domestic Chinese firms an unfair competitive advantage.
A number of U.S. lawmakers have urged the United States to use the WTO decision to launch a new case to force China into lifting its rare earth export restrictions, Reuters reports.

Gold Stock Trades Editor Jeb Handwerger recently told The Critical Metals Report that a U.S. government think tank wrote a 200-page report anticipating a supply shortfall in certain basic elements. According to Handwerger, the report says that in the short-term there could be supply shortages of yttrium, europium, neodymium, terbium and dysprosium.
Shares of Lynas Corporation skyrocketed earlier this month after the company received approval for a temporary operating licence for its Lynas Advanced Materials Plant in Malaysia. Granted by the Atomic Energy Licensing Board, the temporary operating licence will be valid for two years.
