A critical review on solvent extraction of rare earths ...

2014-2-1  Bastnesite (La, Ce)FCO 3, monazite, (Ce, La, Y, Th)PO 4, and xenotime, YPO 4, are the main commercial sources of rare earths. Rare earth minerals are usually beneficiated by flotation or gravity or magnetic processes to produce concentrates that are subsequently leached with aqueous inorganic acids, such as HCl, H 2 SO 4, or HNO 3.

Rare Earth Extraction - an overview ScienceDirect Topics

When a rare-earth extraction-separation process with constant mixed extraction ratio is started, the concentration of each component in each stage gradually changes with the more extractable component moving into the scrub section as organic phase moves, and the less extractable component moving into the extraction section as aqueous phase moves.
