Ren Limin, a worker at the Jinyuan Company's smelting workshop, watches over pots containing the rare earth metal Lanthanum before he pours it into a mould near the town of Damao, located in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region October 31, 2010. The near monopoly China has in producing 97 percent of the world's supply of rare earths has been well-known among industrial users for years, but came under the international spotlight after reports Beijing halted shipments to Japan over a territorial dispute with Tokyo last month.

Stairs lead down into a vast tailings dam that contains heavily polluted water near Xinguang Village, located on the outskirts of the city of Baotou in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region in this October 31, 2010 picture. The massive Baogang corporation, located on the outskirts of Baotou city, churns out rare earth metals on a vast scale, and villagers living near the smelting plants and a vast tailings dam used to dump the black refuse from ore processing said the rare earths boom was threatening their livelihood and health. Air and water toxins from the plants and dam were poisoning them, their water, crops and children, they said. China supplies 97 percent of rare earths used worldwide, and they go into magnets, bearings and high-tech components that go into computers, vehicles and, increasingly, clean energy technology such as wind turbines and hybrid cars.

A worker shovels cast-off tailings out of a channel sluicing crushed mineral ore containing rare earths to a disposal dam on the edge of the city of Baotou, in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region October 31, 2010. The sludge has been rejected by large rare earth smelters nearby but workers sell it for around 300 Yuan ($45) per tonne to smaller operators eager for a slice of China's rare earth metals business - a market that China has a near monopoly on by producing 97 percent of the world's supply, and having around 87 percent of all known deposits.
