  • 3-D supercomputer simulations of hidden rock structures deep under Asian High Mountains
  • Scientists from China, Canada, and the U.S. used seismic data from 227 Asian regional earthquakes during 2007-2011
  • The group published their results in March 2015 in the American Geophysical Union Journal of Geophysical Research, Solid Earth

Global Context

Developed economies are heavily dependent on foreign sources of critical minerals and on foreign supply chains to build value-added products, resulting in potential strategic vulnerabilities to global economic prosperity and national security. Consequently, almost each nation is perusing or formulating policies to secure the supply chain.

USA Strategy

President of USA issued Executive Order 13817 (December 2017) which tasked the US Department of the Interior, to develop a list of minerals deemed critical, and the Department of Commerce, in coordination with other Federal agencies, to develop a strategy to reduce the Nation’s vulnerability to disruptions in the supply of critical minerals.
