SHANGHAI, Apr. 11 (SMM) - An ultra-large weathering crust type rare earth deposit was discovered in southern Yunnan Province, which is very rare in China, .cre.net reported.

Detected rare earth ore reserves totaled 360 million tonnes, with ion absorbed rare earth oxide of 470,000 tonnes, mainly lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium and yttrium, associated with 57,462 tonnes of niobium oxide, 81,839 tonnes of rubidium, 10,818 tonnes of gallium and 961 tonnes of scandium.

After experimental investigation, rare earth recycling rate of the deposit is above 94%, and the purity of rare earth oxide is no lower than 92%.

Yunnan Province had no ultra-large ion-adsorbed type rare earth deposit before.
