The need for a continuous, secure supply of rare earth elements is widely reported. The rare earths mining industry is responding to this need, including Liberty Star; we seek to explore and develop the large (7 – 9 sq mile) rare earth metals anomaly discovered at Hay Mountain in southeast Arizona.
In that endeavor we have engaged a lobbying group, VogelHood Research (NR 181) to bring the Liberty Star REE story before the appropriate congressional subcommittees. Yesterday we submitted Testimony for the Record to the House Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources for the July 23rd hearing on “American Metals and Mineral Security: An examination of the domestic critical minerals supply and demand chain.” Mineweb covered the hearing – Dorothy Kosich “Coherent national mineral policy a must for U.S. manufacturing, Congress told”
Liberty Star’s website includes several links to news, educational articles and videos reinforcing our aim to concentrate on the exploration of the REE anomaly at Hay Mountain.
Summary of REE information shared on our website:

Rare earth elements are required for a wide variety of modern electronic, autos and weapons systems:
