Sinar Harian – 18 NGO setuju halang Lynas

KUANTAN – Sebanyak 18 pertubuhan mencapai kata sepakat untuk bekerjasama dalam merancang strategi bagi memastikan matlamat mereka untuk menghalang projek Lynas di Gebeng tercapai.

Persetujuan itu dicapai dalam Seminar Perancangan Strategik Kempen Hentikan Lynas anjuran Persatuan Penduduk Kuantan Perihatin (KCC) yang berlangsung selama empat jam di sini, kelmarin.

Ahli Parlimen Kuantan, Fuziah Salleh berkata, melalui kerjasama itu, satu badan dikenali sebagai Stop Lynas Coalition akan dibentuk.

Antara pertubuhan terlibat termasuk, Badan Bertindak Anti Rare Earth Refinery (Badar), Consumer Association Penang (CAP), Sahabat Alam Malaysia (Sam), Save Malaysian Stop Lynas (SMSL), Gelombang Hijau, Pahang Bar Council, Malaysia Medical Association (MMA), Kuantan Environmental Watch Group dan Green Coalition.

Turut mengambil bahagian, Kean Tao Baptist Church, Pastor English Team, Kuantan Baptist Church, Persatuan Kebajikan dan Pendidikan Rakyat Pulau Pinang, Cyber Research Kuantan Team, Pas Indera Mahkota, PKR Indera Mahkota, PKR Kuantan dan Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM).

Fuziah berkata, Stop Lynas Coalition ini akan disokong dua kumpulan membabitkan kumpulan utama dan sokongan terdiri daripada badan bukan kerajaan (NGO), pertubuhan, parti politik dan individu dari alam dan luar Kuantan.

“Kami sepakat untuk menggunakan segala kekuatan dan sumber yang ada untuk mengerakkan desakan ini ke tahap yang optimum.

“Pada masa sama, gabungan ini akan merangka pelan perancangan strategik enam bulan ke arah mencapai matlamat memastikan projek Lynas milik Lynas Corporation di Kawasan Perindustrian Gebeng dekat sini dihentikan,” katanya dalam satu sidang media, di sini, kelmarin.

Fuziah berkata, desakan itu bagaimanapun akan berterusan sehingga pihak yang terlibat membuat keputusan menghentikan projek tersebut.

“Usaha ini mendapat sokongan padu daripada pertubuhan terlibat malah mereka juga boleh mengerakkan aktiviti dengan matlamat yang sama melalui organisasi masing-masing,” katanya.

Menurutnya, gabungan itu juga akan menggunakan rangkaian di peringkat tempatan, serantau dan antarabangsa untuk tujuan tersebut.

“Selain tindakan undang-undang, kempen kesedaran juga akan dijalankan bagi menyedarkan masyarakat khususnya penduduk Kuantan berhubung isu itu.

“Semua pertubuhan terlibat bersetuju untuk mengadakan perjumpaan secara berkala dan mereka bersedia untuk mempengerusikan mesyuarat secara bergilir-gilir,” katanya.

Bloomberg – Rare Earths Fall as Toyota Uses Alternatives

Rare Earths Fall as Toyota Develops Alternatives

CHINA RARE EARTHS WEAPONS

Neodymium is displayed at the Baotou Steel Rare-Earth Hi-Tech Co. factory in Baotou, Inner Mongolia, China. Makers of electric cars, wind turbines and oil-refining catalysts have sought to reduce use of the metals after China said in July 2010 that it would cut exports and clamp down on the industry.

Rare-earth prices are set to extend their decline from records this year as buyers including?Toyota Motor Corp. (7203)?and?General Electric Co. (GE)?scale back using the materials in their cars and windmills.

Prices for cerium and lanthanum, the most abundant rare- earth elements, will drop by 50 percent in 12 months, Christopher Ecclestone, an analyst at Hallgarten & Co. in?New York, has forecast. Neodymium and praseodymium, metals used in permanent rare-earth magnets, may fall as much as 15 percent, he said.

Makers of electric cars, wind turbines and oil-refining catalysts have sought to reduce use of the metals after?China, which supplies more than 90 percent of the market, said in July 2010 that it would cut exports and clamp down on the industry. That boosted prices, encouraging mining companies to develop new prospects and buyers to find alternatives.

“If you think you can keep raising the prices for those materials and still keep your customers, you?re crazy,” Jack Lifton, co-founder of Technology Metals Research, said in a telephone interview. “The principal customer for rare-earth metals is a global automotive industry using rare-earth permanent magnets. That industry will engineer this stuff out.”

Declines in August and September pared a five-month, fourfold surge that brought the average price for eight of the most widely used rare-earth oxides to a record 396,850 yuan ($62,068) a metric ton in July, data from consultant “Shanghai Steelhome Information“?show. The average price declined 13 percent from its July peak as of Sept. 27.

Share Performance

The Bloomberg Rare Earth Mineral Resources Index dropped 41 percent in the last three months, led by a 60-percent decline in Montreal-based?Quest Rare Minerals Ltd. (QRM)?Great Western Minerals Group Ltd., which explores in?North America, climbed 4.6 percent in the period and is the only gainer on the 17-member benchmark.

Rare earths have been pushed lower because of selling by speculators, Michael Gambardella, a New York-based analyst at JPMorgan Chase & Co., said in a report last week. Tsunami- related disruptions in?Japan?and dumping of unpermitted material in China have undercut prices, while industrial substitution has driven “demand destruction,” said Sam Berridge, a Sydney-based analyst at Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc.

“A greater focus on recycling and substitution, particularly by Japanese consumers, has resulted in tightness of demand easing somewhat for the lighter rare earths,” Berridge said by phone.

“Huge Savings”

Rising prices for the so-called light metals, such as neodymium and lanthanum, have prompted automakers including Toyota,?Asia‘s biggest automaker, to look at reducing the use of relatively powerful and expensive rare-earth magnets in their vehicles. Some?Toyota vehicles?will be built with an induction motor, which doesn’t use rare-earth magnets, said?John Hanson, a Toyota spokesman in Torrance,?California.

?Moving from a fixed-magnet motor to an induction motor is a huge savings with regard to rare-earth metals,? Hanson said by phone.

“The Japanese are leading the push to replace, reduce and recycle their rare-earths consumption,” said Dudley Kingsnorth, chief executive officer of Perth-based advisory Industrial Minerals Co. of?Australia. “Users are recycling rare earths wherever they can, using them more efficiently, particularly in the magnet industry where they are producing powerful magnets with smaller volumes.”

GM’s Plans

General Motors Co. (GM), the largest U.S. automaker, plans to sell a Chevrolet Malibu Eco next year that uses an induction motor, and otherwise cut down on magnets that use a lot of rare earths.

“The magnets are like God?s gift to electric motors,” Pete Savagian, GM’s chief engineer for electric motors, said in a telephone interview. “But we don’t always need that level of magnet. Even at prices we saw three and four years ago, there’s a more economic alternative, albeit at slightly less efficient outcome.”

The largest portion of demand for rare earths, one third, comes from generating electricity, according to Bloomberg Industries.

In August, GE announced the development of wind-turbine generators that will reduce dependence on the rare-earth materials prevalent in so-called permanent-magnet machines. Some current offshore?wind turbines?may contain as much as half a ton of the metals, according to Bloomberg Industries analysis.

Gasoline Refining

“Everybody is going back to the drawing board and trying to redesign their generators to minimize the usage of permanent magnets,” said Steve Duclos, chief scientist and manager of material sustainability for GE Global Research. “In all of our businesses we’re looking to reduce our usage.”

W.R. Grace & Co. began selling this year an oil-refining catalyst with reduced lanthanum, a rare earth that has increased in price more than fourfold in the past year. Lanthanum improves the amount of gasoline refiners can extract from crude oil and is also used in hybrid-car batteries.

Half of the company’s customers had switched to the new formula, which offers the same performance and gives them “double-digit type percent decreases in their cost,” Grace Chief Financial Officer Hudson La Force III said on a conference call this month.

The development doesn?t worry?Mark Smith, CEO of?Molycorp Inc. (MCP), owner of the largest rare-earth deposit outside China.

New Mines

Fluid-cracking catalysts have “always been one of the largest single markets for any of the individual rare earths,” Smith said in an interview at Bloomberg headquarters in New York. “We don’t see that deteriorating in any significant form.”

While rare-earth prices have fallen, demand will outpace supplies even with new mines in California and Australia expected to come online in 2014, Smith said.

“Like any market, you’re going to see up and down in the course of a month or two,” Smith said. “But the overall trend remains short supply, heavy demand.”

The ability to substitute many rare-earth applications will be limited, said Constantine Karayannopoulos, CEO of?Neo Material Technologies Inc. (NEM), a Toronto-based producer of rare- earth magnets.

?All kinds of folks are trying to use alternative technologies,? he said by phone. ?Longer-term, don?t expect these technologies to be in place this quarter or the next.?

GE’s Duclos says he has little doubt companies will find substitutes, sooner or later.

“It will depend on the element, it will depend on the usage, but getting 10-20 percent efficiencies out of the usage of an element is not that terribly difficult,” Duclos said. “What I don’t subscribe to is this idea that there’s nothing we can do.”

ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): Malaysian MP accuses Australian company of fraud

South East Asia correspondent?Zoe Daniel

Updated September 29, 2011 09:49:59

A Malaysian MP has accused an Australian company of corporate fraud in relation to the building of an ore processing plant in Malaysia.

The Lynas Corp plant will process ore from Western Australia in Malaysia, extracting rare earth minerals for hi-tech manufacturing.

The ore contains low levels of radiation, but the Australian company says its plant will be safe.

But Malaysian MP Fuziah Salleh has lodged an official complaint with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

In a letter to ASIC, she says the company promised the International Atomic Energy Agency it would intensify consultation.

She says the company’s failure to publicly release a waste disposal plan amounts to corporate fraud.

Lynas says it has met with more than 3,000 residents in Malaysia since it was told to intensify communications.

The company says it is fulfilling its obligations.

The plant is expected to be complete by the end of the year.

当今大马 – 第二季报告谎称积极与民沟通 傅芝雅投诉莱纳斯误导投资者

2011年9月28日
中午 12点58分

公正党关丹国会议员傅芝雅继续追击莱纳斯的稀土厂计划。她最近向澳洲当局投诉莱纳斯在第二季度报告中发表不实讯息,企图误导投资者。

她指出,尽管莱纳斯宣称已准备好两份国际独立专家评估小组要求的报告,但它却始终没有公开相关报告。

另一方面,莱纳斯在季度报告宣称,遵照小组要求,已加强跟受影响方面的沟通。但事实上,它从未跟关丹民众进行沟通。

傅芝雅因此致函澳洲证券和投资监管委员会(ASIC)投诉这家澳洲矿业巨头,狠批它撒谎,也从未向大众公开上述两份报告。

不满莱纳斯隐瞒二报告

NONE傅芝雅(左图)在志期9月27日的投诉信中指控,莱纳斯在其截止6月30日的2011年第二季报告指出,该公司计划在7月18日将?废料管理长远计划报告?呈交原子能执照局,以满足评估小组所开出的首个条件。

同时,莱纳斯正在拟定关闭工厂后的安全方案,预料在8月时呈给该局。

报告也指出,莱纳斯也准备在7月18日,向原子能执照局提呈一份更新版本的辐射影响评估报告,以符合评估小组的第2项条件。

不过,傅芝雅大表不满,炮轰莱纳斯从未将有关报告公诸于众,也从未在撰写报告期间咨询公众意见。

斥莱纳斯诈骗误导群众

莱纳斯在报告也声称,本身已积极与利益相关者或受稀土厂影响的人士沟通。

但傅芝雅指出,莱纳斯这项说法形同误导公众的企业诈骗行径,因为莱纳斯从未会见当地居民。

“当稀土厂准备在今年杪投入生产之际,莱纳斯谎称接洽公众,却避谈它正面对当地居民强烈抗议。”

傅芝雅促请澳洲证券和投资监管委员会强制莱纳斯更正其第二季度报告,或公开所有相关的报告。

国际评估小组设11条件

根据国际独立专家评估小组在6月30日所出炉的报告,稀土厂的建筑符合国际安全辐射标准,惟它也提出11项条件,要求大马政府、原子能执照局和莱纳斯全盘落实后,才可发出稀土厂准营运执照。

第一项建议:原子能执照局必须要求稀土厂在投入运作前,提呈一份废料管理长远计划和安全方案,尤其是在工厂关闭后,如何处理水沥滤净化固体(water leach purification solids)。

这些安全方案事项包括未来所动用的土地、公众的辐射剂量安全标准、评估时限、安全功能和鉴定储藏辐射废料地点的方式等。

第二项建议:原子能执照局须规定稀土厂在投入运作前,必须提供一个计划,阐明如何在关闭及拆除工厂后,处理残余的辐射废料,也应该因此更新其辐射影响评估和拆厂的计划。

莱纳斯从未接洽当地居民

第十项建议:莱纳斯身为负责提炼稀土安全事项的单位,应该加强与利益相关者的沟通,以证明它是如何确保公众和环境的辐射安全。

该公司首席执行员尼可拉斯(Nicholas Curtis)当时即时回应,莱纳斯有信心在今年杪符合所有条件,并预期稀土厂将将如期运作。

无论如何,关丹当地反稀土厂组织”救大马”委员会主席陈文德早前指出,自评估小组报告出炉至今,莱纳斯和政府从未接洽当地居民。

目前,位于关丹以北35公里格宾工业区的稀土厂,已经进入第二阶段的建筑工程,料将在今年杪竣工。

Malaysiakini – Kuantan MP complains to Australia’s ASIC over Lynas

Sep 28, 11 3:20pm
Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh has complained to the Australian authorities with allegations that the Sydney-based Lynas Corporation Ltd had committed “corporate fraud” by misrepresenting its actions to the investing public.

She said this in a letter dated Sept 27 addressed to the New South Wales branch of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

NONEFuziah said Lynas in its second quarter report for the year ending June 30, 2011, outlined its strategies towards satisfying the 11 recommendations by a panel of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) members that the body said must be satisfied before an operational license is issued the company by the Malaysian government.

Lynas has built a Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (Lamp) in Gebeng, Pahang, to process rare earth.

Three key recommendations, in particular, were to be satisfied by Lynas pertaining to the submission of documents on a permanent waste disposal plan, a plant decommissioning plan, and the intensification of communication with affected parties to “demonstrate how it will ensure the radiological safety of the public and the environment”

According to the PKR vice-president, however, none of the documents claimed by Lynas to have been submitted as part of its fulfilment of those recommendations have been disclosed to the public, nor was the public consulted in the formulation of these plans.

NONE“Yet, Lynas claimed to have satisfied IAEA’s ‘Recommendation 10’ in intensifying communication with affected parties,” said Fuziah in her letter.

“We regard this contradiction as an act of corporate fraud to mislead the investing public.

“By lying about its engagement with the public, Lynas understates the risk of revolt by the local residents when the Lamp is ready for production at the end of this year,” said Fuziah.

“The investing public has the right to access correct information to facilitate their decision making.

“Therefore, we urge the Australian Securities and Investments Commission to compel Lynas to issue a correction to its quarterly report, or to disclose all submitted documents to the public,” she added.

Free Malaysia Today – MP files complaint with Aussie commission

Syed Jaymal Zahiid | September 28, 2011

According to Kuantan MP Fuziah Salleh, Australian mining giant Lynas is attempting to mislead investors.

KUALA LUMPUR: The anti-Lynas movement’s leading lady Fuziah Salleh claimed that the Australian mining giant is defrauding investors.

In view of this, she lodged a formal complaint with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

In the letter dated Sept 27, the Kuantan MP said there were contradictions in Lynas’ Q2 report on its Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP) which she regarded “as an act of corporate fraud to mislead the investing public”.

In her letter, Fuziah said that Lynas had, in its Q2 report for the period ending June 30, 2011, had outlined strategies to satisfy the 11 IAEA recommendations, including claiming to have submitted the permanent waste disposal plan to AELB on July 18, 2011, and the remaining documents in August 2011.

Fuziah, when contacted, however said none of the residents or the affected parties have been informed of Lynas’ long-term waste disposal plan.

The assurance that the Australian mining giant produces a solid waste management plan to address concerns of radioactive leaks was the first recommendation made by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in its review of the LAMP.

Lynas claimed to have submitted the permanent waste disposal plan to the Malaysian regulatory agency, the Atomic Energy Licensing Board (AELB), only on July 18, 2011.

It added that the safety case work was underway and was planned to be submitted with updated Radiation Impact Assessment report to the AELB in August.

Right to correct information

Fuziah said the silence on Lynas’ part over its long-term waste management plan was a direct attempt to mislead investors over its failure to follow recommendation 10 of the IAEA.

The recommendation stated that Lynas, as the party responsible for the safety of the proposed rare earth processing facility, should be urged to intensify its communication with interested and affected parties.

This was to demonstrate how it would ensure the radiological safety of the public and the environment.

“But until now none of us have seen the plan or have been informed when Lynas is supposed to intensify communication with residents or affected parties,” Fuziah told FMT.

She added that the investing public had the right to correct information to facilitate their decision making.

“Therefore, we urge the Australian Securities and Investments Commission to compel Lynas to issue a correction to its quarterly report or to disclose all submitted documents to the public,” she said.
