• Oregon DEQ Briefing Paper: Rare Earth Elements

     · The principal concentrations of rare earth elements are associated with uncommon varieties of igneous rocks, namely alkaline rocks and carbonatites. Carbonatites are mostly intrusive rocks that contain more than 50 percent carbonate minerals, cooled from a lava melt. Structurally, they occur as volcanic plugs, dikes and cone sheets.

    As seen in the chart to the right, rare-earth elements are found on earth at similar concentrations to many common transition metals. The most abundant rare-earth element is cerium, which is actually the 25th most abundant element in Earth''s crust, having 68 parts per million (about as common as copper).The exception is the highly unstable and radioactive promethium "rare earth" is quite scarce.
