N.B.: This is a list of rare earth deposits where some form of commercial activity has taken place during the past 10 years, one way or another. The one or the other deposit may not be worth the while, but appears for impossible to achieve completeness sake.

Nothing in this is to suggest, that any of the deposits or companies are worth even a penny, nor does this list lay claim to being complete and completely accurate.

For most of the deposits and companies in the list we have data and documentation, so we have a pretty good idea of the commercial potential.
