The Biden administration has released the findings of its review of the nation’s critical mineral supply chain vulnerabilities. Amongst other things, the report has called for the US to source more critical minerals such as rare earths from its key allies and partners in order to reduce its reliance in imports from China. The report noted that the US will still be highly dependent on China for the processing of critical minerals, given that the nation has limited onshore processing and refining capacity. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Scott Morrison says Australia has a "responsibility" to expand its endowment of critical minerals.
