Rear Earth Strategic Metals ETF
More and more technological applications are in need of specific characteristics of materials which can be find in rare earth metals. At this moment there are 49 elements that are indicated as “rare”.
But the term “rare’ is a bit relative as some metals are not rare in the way that they are extremely difficult to find. The problem is that these metals are not to be found in a concentrated form.
Rare earth metals are often a by-product of mining other basic materials. As we said before there are more and more applications for these rare earth elements so the demand is on the rise.
The same goes for the supply however as we are more and more capable of exploring these rare earth metals and separating them from other sources.
