Lynas Corporation Ltd is an Australian rare earths mining company that specializes in the exploration, development, and production of rare earth minerals. The company was founded in 1983 and is headquartered in Perth, Western Australia.
Lynas operates the Mount Weld mine in Western Australia, which is one of the richest rare earth deposits in the world. The company also operates a processing plant in Malaysia, where it refines the rare earth minerals extracted from the Mount Weld mine.
Lynas is one of the few companies outside of China that produces rare earth minerals, which are essential for the production of high-tech products such as smartphones, electric vehicles, and wind turbines. The company has faced controversy over its operations in Malaysia, with concerns raised about the environmental impact of its processing plant.
Despite these challenges, Lynas has continued to expand its operations and invest in research and development to improve its production processes. The company is committed to sustainable mining practices and has set ambitious targets to reduce its environmental footprint.
