SMM News: "the Middle East has oil, China has rare earths." Rare earth is known as the "mother of new materials", widely used in new energy, optics, aerospace and other cutting-edge high-tech fields, is a precious strategic resources.
With the rising prices of rare earths, some "brave men" have also taken risks one after another, in vain to steal rare earth mines to get rich. However, the law has been neglected, this kind of illegal and criminal behavior not only can not get rich quickly, but will cause great harm to themselves and their families.

Review of the case
In mid-2011, the defendant Xie Mou Cong and Chen XuCong (sentenced) led people to detect rare earth mines in Ziliushan, a village in Dahu Town, Yong'an City. One day in July 2011, the defendant Xie Mou-tze and Chen Mou-Cong and Huang Mou-gen (who had been sentenced) decided that the defendant Xie Mou-ze would be responsible for negotiating the purchase of the mountain yard involved in the mining site and taking a stake in part of the mountain yard of a village in Dahu Town of Yong'an City to coordinate the relationship between the local villagers. Chen Mou Cong is responsible for dealing with problems such as sabotage by villagers and hindering mining. Huang and his partners Li Mengen (judged) and Fu Xuhui (judged) jointly accounted for 45% of the shares, responsible for capital contribution and specific mining work. At the same time, Chen Mou Cong sent Zhao Mupo and others to the mining site to supervise and deal with the villagers who hindered illegal mining in a timely manner.
The mountains at the scene of the crime were devastated
From October to December 2011, without a mining license, workers hired by Huang and Li were hired to illegally mine rare earth minerals in a village in Dahu Town, Yong'an City, by destroying mountain forests, excavating mountain roads and pools, and Zhao Mupo was responsible for site management and coordination. During this period, the three defendants continued to mine the mine knowing that the relevant government departments had strictly banned the mining of rare earth mines and that the illegal mining site had been investigated by relevant government departments and repeatedly prevented by mountain farmers and others, until it was seized by the Yongan Public Security Bureau on 19 December 2011. Identified by the Law Enforcement and Supervision Department of the Fujian Provincial Department of Land and Resources, the value of the destruction of rare earth mineral resources in a village in Dahu Town, Yong'an City is RMB 1.461 million yuan. After the mine was investigated and dealt with by the Yongan Public Security Bureau, in order to evade criminal responsibility, the defendants Xie and Chen ordered Zhao to take the blame for them. Zhao was later sentenced to five years in prison for illegal mining, during which he accused defendants Xie and Chen of illegal mining. On September 25, 2018, the defendant Xie was brought back by the police of the Yongan Public Security Bureau for questioning. Court hearing
