Brasil has rare earths in abundance

[source]
Currently China produces 95% of the so-called rare earths. In that light the recent discovery of large deposits of rare earths in Brazil is welcome news for high-tech industrial consumers of these materials. Recent Chinese restrictions on the export of rare earth minerals has made this discovery even more valuable. The deposits were discovered by Vale, the world’s largest iron ore mining company.
