“President Trump wants more rare earth mining done in the U.S. and less of it done in China and Russia. The stuff that will power your Tesla, and the minerals that go into the next generation microchips, don’t fall from the sky, and it doesn’t grow on pine trees. And the problem with obtaining those rare minerals is that China controls a large chunk of them.”
New A.G.E. Perspective: Trump’s Executive Order begins the process for the Department of the Interior to develop a program to use its authorities under the Defense Production Act (DPA) to fund mineral processing that protects U.S. national security.
The action will cut down on unnecessary delays in permitting actions, providing Americans opportunities for jobs and improving economic and national security. New A.G.E. technology provides an economic solution to this National Emergency.
