Highlights

 

  • ASX-listed rare earths stocks have gained significantly in the recent past.

  • The companies have racked up gains after Western countries decided to secure supplies of these metals outside of China.

  • Australia is known to have a huge potential for the production of rare earths.

The ASX-listed companies, which are focused on exploration and production of rare earths, have performed well in the last few months. The spike in these ASX rare earth stocks can be attributed to Western countries’ decision of securing supplies outside of China.

Australia is known to have a huge potential for the production of rare earths. The mineral-rich country produced 20,000 tonnes of these metals in 2020, accounting for a lion’s share of the total global production of 240,000 tonnes that year.
