The US, Canada and Australia will co-operate in developing a strategy to reduce reliance on China for key minerals such as rare earths and lithium. Rare earths in particular are crucial in a range of technology, including defence systems, wind turbines and electric vehicle batteries. Meanwhile, Austrade has identified a list of Australia’s ‘critical’ mineral resources that could potentially be developed using offshore capital. The Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility is also considering an investment in Arafura Resources’ proposed rare earths mine in the Northern Territory.
