RARE EARTHS IN SELECTED U S DEFENSE APPLICATIONS

Monazite, a rare earth-thorium phosphate mineral, is quite similar to bastnsite as a LREE ore, however, it contains slightly more of the HREE, especially, yttrium, dysprosium, and gadolinium. The negative aspect of mining and processing monazite is its typically high content of thorium, a naturally occurring radioactive element (4.5%-10% ThO
