Realising Australia's rare earth resource potential (ARC Linkage Project administered by Adelaide University) (2020–2023)

This project aims to reveal the potential for undiscovered economic deposits of rare earth elements within the Australian continent. Future supply of these elements underpins societies transition to clean energy and embrace of high-tech applications. The project expects to greatly enhance our knowledge of Australia¿s endowment of rare earth element resources using an array of traditional and innovative geological research methods. Expected outcomes of this project include a greater understanding of how, where and when rare earth element orebodies form in the Earth's crust. This should provide significant benefits to exploring for¿¿and discovering¿¿new orebodies that are required to secure global critical metal supplies.
