Rare earth elements (REEs) are a discrete series of metals without which much of today’s high-tech world would not exist. The cost of extracting these metals, the jurisdictions of REE reserves and the geopolitics associated with these vital commodities make them a game-changer for manufacturing, development of new technologies and international relations.
