The Geology of Rare Earth Elements

Residual Rare Earth Deposits. In tropical environments, rocks are deeply weathered to form a unique soil profile consisting of laterite, an iron- and aluminum-rich soil, as much as many tens of meters thick. The processes of soil formation commonly concentrate heavy minerals as residual deposits, resulting in an enriched-metal layer over the

2019-5-25  The local environments of the rare-earth species have been studied by pulsed EPR spectroscopy of the Yb 3+ spin probe (S = 1 / 2), revealing composition-dependent echo-detected lineshapes and strong hyperfine coupling with 19 F nuclei in hyperfine sublevel correlation (HYSCORE) spectra consistent with the formation of Yb 3+ –F bonds.

Multiple rare-earth ion environments in amorphous (G

A Gd K -edge anomalous x-ray scattering (AXS) study is performed on the rare-earth (R ) phosphate glass, (G d 2 O 3 ) 0.230 (P 2 O 5 ) 0.770,in order to determine Gd ⋯Gd separations in its local structure. The minimum rare-earth separation is of particular interest given that the optical properties of these glasses can quench when rare-earth ions become too close to each other.

2 天前  The principal economic sources of rare earths are the minerals bastnasite, monazite, and loparite and the lateritic ion-adsorption clays. The rare earths are a relatively abundant group of 17 elements composed of scandium, yttrium, and the lanthanides. The elements range in crustal abundance from cerium, the 25th most abundant element of the 78 common elements in the Earth's

2020-11-23  Xujiahe fine-grained sediments (FGSs) are regarded not only as important shale gas targets but also as significant regional hydrocarbon source rocks. To analyze the provenance and depositional conditions of the Xujiahe FGSs, trace elements and rare-earth elements (REEs) from two wells in the western Sichuan Basin were investigated. The results indicate that the Xujiahe FGSs mainly originated
