>Molycorp Mine


Here are some photos I did of the Molycorp Mountain Pass mine in Mountain Pass, California for Bloomberg News which ended up as a gallery on the Wall Street Journal’s website. Molycorp Minerals LLC is the only U.S. company that produces rare earths, and they are planning on expanding their operations by $400 million. Rare earths are used in hybrid cars, computer chips, and televisions. China currently makes up about 90% of the rare earths output.
