The problem , however, is that they are rarely found in sufficient quantities in a single location which makes their mining economically unviable. But due to the huge environmental costs associated with the mining and processing of REEs, many developed countries are sometimes reluctant to do it themselves. The mine did open later but only after it adopted a more environment friendly technology.
