Summary

"This report ... reviews the distribution, geological characteristics, resources and potential of Australia's major REE deposits ... This report provides an up-to-date review of such deposits as a stimulus for future reseach into the geological characteristics of REE in Australia. In a mineral systems framework, we examine the elements considered important for the formation of REE deposits and provide suggested exploration guidelines relevant to Australia. Also included is a compilation of recent products and national databases produced by Geoscience Australia that have potential applications in the exploration for REE.' --P. iii.
