America's Last Ditch Attempt To Delay Its Demise
(09-03-2019, 10:07 PM)Galactic Penguin SST Wrote: Don't play cat and mouse with Galactic Penguin. The point is that like in many forums, some members, among the most active ones, seems to possess moderator-like rights, above all rules: example @SOHEIL can let loose spate of invectives as it pleases and being banned 10 times while obviously violating the three strikes policy.

It is suspected that with the second place in term of both thread counts and post counts, one can surely enjoy a status above the common members.

Soheil? Soheil has literally 1 post in this forum composed of 3 words.

Anyway, there is no favouritism here. There is no rule violation by any members in this thread, no need for me to intervene.

Seriously, Kim Jong Un having tamed the toothless U.S. paper tiger, plays the Trump as He wishes, with a North Korean solid fuel ICBM's first stage (called Qaem in Persian) nearing its first test launch!

During the reporting period, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea continued to enhance its nuclear and missile programmes, although it did not conduct a nuclear test or intercontinental ballistic missile launch. Missile launches in May and July of 2019 enhanced its overall ballistic missile capabilities.

Annex 32: Strengthening the ballistic programme’s capacity

1.According to one Member State the DPRK is actively engaged in indigenous R&D and the production of missiles with solid propellant, inter alia at the industrial complex of Hamhung.
According to another Member State, there is a clear development progression from propellant for artillery rockets/SRBMs to solid propellant for ICBMs (see section 4 of this annex).

Figure I shows two similar distinctive white containers (11m x 2.40m) moving in two different areas of the Hamhung-Hungnam industrial complex. The first container moved from the location 39°49'11.81"N 127°35'17.93"E, 400m from the solid fuel propellant production facility of the Hungnam 17 Factory (39°49'27.00"N 127°35'13.55"E), as observed during the following dates in 2019: 20 February, 25 February, 1 March, 4 March, 25 March, 26 March and 3 April.

The second white container moved from location 39° 57′ 27′′ N 127° 33′ 37′′ E, at the new production area of the Chemical Material Institute CMI (production of missile casing), as observed during the following dates in 2018: 29 July, 18 August (1h56; 4h50) and 15 September. This type of white containers (11m x 2.40m) could transport rocket motor casings (wound from composite fibers).

4. The DPRK’s BM programme is comprehensive and autonomous. Systems integration and internal synergies ensure that developments on the SRBM programme benefit MRBM/IRBM and  ICBM  programmes. With regard to missile engine development, according to one Member State, the DPRK’s current goal appears to be to develop a solid-fueled first stage for its ICBM. Another Member State observed the deployment of solid fueled missiles Pukkuksong-2 (KN-15) MRBM in the missile bases close to the northern border where the liquid fueled missile Nodong also remained deployed.

We haven't seen any ICBM launches from NK lately. They are being careful not to upset Trump and the status quo.
China's Inner Mongolia sees more rare earth in situ conversion

(Xinhua)    07:49, September 20, 2019

 The city of Baotou, north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, has almost doubled its in situ conversion rate of rare earth raw material to 75 percent, the municipal government said on Thursday.

Rare earth functional materials and applications accounted for more than half of the total rare earth industry output of the city, which is home to over 80 percent of China's rare earth resources.

By upgrading its rare earth processing industries, fostering research forces and enhancing policy and funding, Baotou has stepped up its efforts to achieve high-quality industrial development in recent years, said Zhao Jiangtao, mayor of the city.

Baotou's rare earth industry grew by 16.8 percent year on year to reach 17.6 billion yuan (about 2.5 billion U.S. dollars) in 2018, contributing 17 percent of the city's industrial economy.

According to Zhao, the municipal government will speed up the construction of a new industrial park for rare earth materials.

Known as China's "rare earth capital," Baotou has proven rare earth reserves of more than 100 million tonnes in its Bayan Obo mining area.

US, Australia to unveil plan on rare earth mineral supply

Fri Sep 20, 2019 02:07AM

US President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison are set to release a plan on Friday aimed at securing the supply of rare earth minerals, a senior administration official said, as concerns grow that China could cut off shipments of the prized commodities.

The plan will be unveiled during a state visit by Morrison to the White House, where space cooperation and plastic waste management will also be discussed, the official said on Thursday.

"Both countries share an interest in making sure the global supply of rare earths is stable and secure," the official said.

The goal of the plan, he added, was to pool expertise and resources "to make sure there's a stable and secure global market that's not easily disrupted by shocks and outside influences."

Rare earths are a group of 17 chemical elements used in everything from high-tech consumer electronics to military equipment.

Australia contains only 2.8% of the world's rare earth reserves, but accounts for more than half of the new projects in the global pipeline.

Rare earth minerals need to be processed after they are extracted from the ground.

There is only one operational rare earths mine in the United States, although the country has no processing facilities.

China is the world's largest processor and producer of the minerals, accounting for more than 80% of global processing capacity.

After trade talks broke down in May, Chinese President Xi Jinping visited a rare earths plant, sparking speculation that China would use its dominant position as an exporter of rare earths to the United States as leverage in the trade dispute.

Chinese negotiators are in Washington for talks as the world's two largest economies try to bridge deep policy differences and find a way out of a protracted trade war.

A Pentagon official said in August the Defense Department was in talks with Australia to host a facility that would process rare earth metals. The White House official did not respond on Thursday when asked if the plan set to be unveiled would involve such facilities.

Australia's Lynas Corp Ltd, the world's largest rare earths miner and processor outside of China, is developing a processing plant in Texas. Chief Executive Amanda Lacaze said last month the company was open to receiving US government funding to build it.


Remember from now on, China has a proven rare earth reserves of more than 100 million tonnes, that's the same amount as what Trump wants to secure with the planned multibillion-dollar takeover of Greenland, that harbours 100 millions tons of REE.

But still not sufficient enough to challenge China's dominance!

Lol the photoshopped chart that shows North Korea having more rare earth minerals than the world total is back.
having lost some $$$ on rare earth materials in stock market (yes I played the world's biggest rigged game also!!!)..I have some points to make.

1- Rare earth materials are not really that rare.. most places have them ..however processing the rare earth materials from its mineral form is a very dirty and man intensive process..China does that the most at a big cost to environment but who cares in china about environment!!.

2- Canada is a big rare earth land but extractions are not high enough due to environmental costs and regulations.
experience is like a comb that God gives to you after you lost your hair. Undecided
