SAM cautions against promoting rare earth industry. [Newspaper] (2020)


GEORGE TOWN: Sahabat Alam Malaysia (SAM) is gravely concerned over the announcement by Kedah Menteri Besar Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor that the state had entered an agreement with a Kuala Lumpur-based joint venture company to explore rare earth elements (REE). According to media reports, Sanusi had claimed that the REE found in Sik, Ulu Muda and Baling in Kedah, was not radioactive. SAM president R. Meenakshi said similar claims were made last year by the former Water, Land and Natural Resources minister, over a deal between a China company and the Perak state government for the exploration of rare earth minerals. The Perak venture involved the state government and a Chinese company, Chinalco GXNF Rare Earth Development to undertake the exploration of rare-earth minerals.
