rare earth ore mining process

Rare-earth element Processing ores Britannica

The individual rare-earth R 3+ complexes form rectangular bands with a minimum overlap of adjacent bands. The given rare-earth solution is collected, and the R 3+ ion is precipitated out of solution using oxalic acid. The rare-earth oxalate is converted to the oxide by heating it in air at 800–1,000 °C (1,472–1,832 °F).
