Does this have a stock ticker? How do you invest in this? Do they have a website? I don't do risky. I like to look. If I watch 100 stocks I might invest in 5 or 10 of them. I like watching sectors and taking a look at investment ideas. I am not a gambler. I don't run into burning buildings without having an exit strategy.
Mining is almost by definition considered risky, i.e., speculation.

I'm OK with that because a friend -- a very successful businessman -- spent a lot of time researching the rare earths. He has invested a heck of a lot more money $ in rare earths than I did.

I am not giving away his hard won research on the OM. However, you can easily check it out yourself - -via google. There are only a very limited number of rare earth mines/dealers/sellers on the planet. Start googling -- and then check out the individual companies.

If you discover --as you may -- that Toyota and JP Morgan have invested heavily in a particular rare earth company -- your search is over.

Good luck.
