Mineralogical Studies in Assisting Beneficiation of Rare Rare earth elements REE are either housed in exotic REE minerals which sporadically populate the host rock or they occur as ionic substitutions in the crystal structure of existing rock forming minerals.
Rare earth elements REE are generally considered to be the fifteen elements of the lanthanide series plus yttrium which occurs substitutionally with many REE in various minerals and occasionally scandium. The beneficiation of mineral deposits containing economically extractable concentrations of these elements is an area of active research.
The beneficiation of rare earth element REE minerals may include many different beneficiation unit operations but the final process choice typically depends on the Get Price A review of the beneficiation of rare earth element
