Malaysian authorities have extended Lynas Corporation’s operating licence for its $1 billion rare earths processing plant at Kuantan for just six months, with the licence due to expire on 2 September. The plant processes rare earths from Lynas’s Mt Weld mine in Western Australia, and is the largest source of rare earths outside of China. Lynas CEO Amanda Lacaze had said recently that it would be happy with a three-year extension to its licence, although a five-year extension would be ideal.
