Siapa Peminjam Kepada Lynas Untuk LAMP di Gebeng

Dibawah ini saya sertakan keratan tentang apa yang telah berlaku di konferensi REE (Rare Earth Elements) yang telah diadakan di Hong Kong.  Secara nyata dinyatakan bahawa pihak Jepun memberi  pinjaman USD250 juta melalui Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) kepada Lynas untuk membina pusat pemprosesan di Gebeng dan juga pusat penggalian di Mount Weld, Australia.  Pihak yang bekerjasama dengan Lynas untuk menjayakan projek ini ialah Sojitz (syarikat pengedaran tanah jarang terbesar di Jepun) dan ini dilakukan kerana Jepun tidak berpuashati dengan negara China yang memonopoli penggalian dan penjualan tanah jarang/nadir bumi.  Sebahagian besar tanah jarang/nadir bumi yang diproses di Gebeng akan di ekspot ke negara Jepun.

Jadi dengan pembabitan sebegini banyak pihak dari negara yang berlainan, adakah anda rasa kerajaan BN akan menolak permohonan lesen dari pihak Lynas.  Jawapannya mudah...SUDAH PASTI TIDAK.  

Sebenarnya kita sudah diperbodohkan oleh kerajaan BN dan mereka masih cuba memperbodohkan kita.  Semua ini mereka berani lakukan kerana kuasa pemerintahan ada pada mereka.

JUGA TERCATIT DENGAN JELAS BAHAWA APA YANG DIBINA DIGEBENG SEKARANG ADALAH FASA 1.  SETELAH SELESAI PEMBINAAN FASA 1, FASA 2 AKAN DIBINA DAN MELUASKAN LAGI PUSAT PEMPROSESAN INI UNTUK MENGELUARKAN LEBIH BANYAK HASIL TANAH JARANG/NADIR BUMI.

RAKYAT PAHANG PERLU LAKUKAN SESUATU UNTUK MENGELAKKAN TERJERUMUS KEDALAM PERMASALAHAN DIMASA DEPAN AKIBAT PERMAINAN BN DAN LYNAS.

Baca petikan dibawah.....SAYA TIDAK EDIT SIKIT PUN PETIKAN DIBAWAH INI...IANYA ADALAH APA YANG BENAR-BENAR TELAH BERLAKU.
LONDON (Metal-Pages) 24-Nov-10. 

Japan's leading rare earth trader Sojitz will help Australian miner and processor Lynas secure funding to double its rare earth capacity under a strategic alliance agreement between the two companies announced today. 

The companies will work together to seek a funding package of up to $US250 million to cover the cost of accelerating the expansion of the Lynas Rare Earths project to 22,000 tpy. Sojitz will request financial support from the Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (JOGMEC) for the expansion.

Lynas will mine and process rare earths at Mount Weld in Western Australia and is building a processing plant in Malaysia to initially produce light rare earth oxides and carbonates. It is due to start production from 11,000 tpy Phase 1 of its project in the third quarter of next year next year. Subject to funding for Phase 2 expansion, it has agreed to allocate a minimum of 8,500 tonnes (± 500 tonnes) of rare earth products per year to the Japanese market over the next ten years. Sojitz and Lynas will jointly market the rare earth products in Japan.

The aim of the agreement, the Australian company said, is to provide a stable and long term source of supply for the Japanese market. It provides a framework for Lynas and Sojitz, Japan's leading rare earth importer, to agree off-take, distribution and financing arrangements during 2011 which would enable Lynas to bring forward the phase 2 expansion of the rare earth mine and concentration plant at Mount Weld in Western Australia and the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) in Malaysia. The expansion will double annual production capacity for rare earth products from 11,000 tpy to 22,000 tonnes REO (Rare Earths Oxide).

Lynas Executive Chairman Nick Curtis said: “This landmark agreement will enable Lynas to accelerate marketing to Japanese customers. If implemented, it will enable Phase 2 construction to be committed in April 2011 and be online in 2012, expanding the capacity of the LAMP to 22,000 tonnes REO per annum”.

The agreement with Sojitz means more than 70% of the Lynas 22,000 tonne capacity is now allocated, Lynas said.

“Lynas welcomes this Alliance and believes this opportunity advances our ability to set a new global benchmark for the production, processing and marketing of rare earth products in a safe and environmentally responsible manner which can be relied on by our customers,” Curtis added.

The agreement is the latest move signalling Japan's desire to move away from its over-reliance on world's largest rare earth producer China for the supply of strategic metals which are used in electronics and other advanced applications including low-energy lighting and electric vehicles. The issue of China's dominant influence in the market came to a head for Japan when Chinese suppliers reportedly halted exports of rare earths to Japan in late August following a diplomatic incident.
