Rare earth production in China remained relatively low during 1990–1992 but started increasing in 1994. In 1995, as the leading producer, China produced 48,000 tons (t) of REO (Gupta and Krishnamurth, 2005). China's rare earth output as a percentage of the total world output increased to more than 90% in 2008 from 27% in 1990.

Chemical beneficiation of rare earth ores is mostly used in rare earth deposits which are adhering to kaolin or clay in ionic form. The chemical beneficiation method of leaching first and then precipitating is adopted because of the solubility of rare earth ions in sodium chloride or ammonium sulfate solution.
rare earth elements from coal and coal byproduct streams, such as fly ash, coal refuse, and aqueous effluents. The Department is directed t o report its findings and, if determined feasible, to outline a multi-year research and development program for recovering rare earth elements from coal and coal byproduct streams to the
Coal Beneficiation at NETL focuses on both enhancing the value of coal as a feedstock and developing new high-value products derived from coal. Research includes testing of laboratory and pilot scale technologies to produce upgraded coal feedstocks and additional revenue producing products.

rare earth elements in ore are existed in independent minerals, and about 4% ~ 7% of REE dispersed in iron minerals and fluorite. Total 15 kinds of rare earth minerals are found but the principal ones are bastnaesite [(Ce,La,Nd)(CO3)F] and monazite [(Ce,La,Nd)PO4] with the ratio
Finer grained rare earth minerals need to be separated using methods such as froth flotation, which absorb a specific collector on the surface of the rare earth minerals to allow a physical separation. Complex ores may not be suitable for beneficiation and require direct, whole of ore leaching in order to recover the rare earth elements.
