US allocates $74.6 million to explore for Critical Minerals

La problématique du 'sourcing' local aux USA est une question récurrente depuis des années. La pression du secteur privé sur les gouvernements successifs aux états unis est constante. L'un des enjeux majeur était la dépendance à la Chine pour les terres rares lourdes présentent dans les nouvelles technologies de défense armée; cependant les volumes requis étaient réduits et pouvaient en partie provenir de gisements sur sol américain. Aujourd'hui l'enjeu est bien plus grand car il touche aussi la transition énergétique et une future économie circulaire dans le domaine des batteries et de la mobilité électrique.

L'effort consenti avec un budget de $75 millions pour la recherche dans une trentaine d'états reste modéré.---LK

The problem of local 'sourcing' in the USA has been a recurring issue for years. The pressure of the private sector on successive governments in the United States is constant. One of the major issues was the dependence on China for the heavy rare earths present in the new technologies of armed defense; however, the volumes required were small and could partly come from deposits on American soil. Today the stakes are much greater because it also affects the energy transition and a future circular economy in the field of batteries and electric mobility.

The effort made with a budget of $75 million for research in around thirty states remains moderate.---LK
