An in-depth look at the commodities of the future.
You might have seen headlines about ‘rare earths’ recently.
Contrary to their name, many rare earths are actually abundant in the earth’s crust.
But they are rarely located in easily exploitable ore deposits.
There’s 17 chemical elements that fall under the term ‘rare earths’…
And they’re used far and wide from powering electric vehicles…to displaying vivid colours in TVs…to heat-treating guided missiles.
They were a hot topic during increased US–China trade tensions. Even if that looks to be cooling down now, their strategic importance can’t be overlooked.
To put it simply, China has them, the US doesn’t. And supply could soon get even shorter as China tightens their grip around the industry.
If China decided to weaponise these commodities, by denying them to the US, it could have far-reaching implications across the world.
In a brand-new report from Money Morning, Lachlann Tierney reveals the strategic importance of rare earths, and potential opportunities for brave investors.
Inside this definitive guide to rare earths you’ll discover:
- What exactly rare earths are, what they’re used for, and their strategic importance. We’ll start with a brief intro into what makes a rare earth, where they’re found, and national reserve levels. But more importantly, you’ll learn how they’re used…from electric vehicles to military technology.
- The geopolitical factors that could cause huge price swings in rare earths: Demand is closely tied to geopolitical factors. China has weaponised rare earths against India and Vietnam in the past. They’re now considering tightening up their grip even further according to South China Morning Post.[i]
- Five key things to look for in a solid rare earth miner before you consider investing: The performance of any rare earth miner is going to rest on what you’ll learn next. One of these factors could make or break any miner before they even start drilling — and it’s not resource size or funding.
You’ll learn all this and more in the brand-new report: ‘Rare Earth Boom 2.0’.

Calculating Your Future Returns: The value of any investment and the income derived from it can go down as well as up. Never invest more than you can afford to lose and keep in mind the ultimate risk is that you can lose whatever you’ve invested.
