• 8 Top Rare Earth-producing Countries

    While some expected China to loosen its grip on the rare earths market in 2014, the country still took center stage. The World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled against Chinese rare earth export quotas, but a number of analysts suggested that wouldn’t have much of an effect on the space. Indeed, while China removed its rare earth export quotas, its domestic production quotas haven’t been affected by the ruling. The country has also removed its export tariffs on rare earths, bringing prices down. Stil

  • Diamond Boss Sees More Pain amid Credit Crunch

    De Beers’s former finance chief, who is developing a diamond mine in southern Africa, expects the industry to remain depressed this year as retail sales languish and traders struggle to turn a profit. “I don’t see the second half of 2015 being that positive,” Stuart Brown, chief executive officer of Firestone Diamonds Ltd., said by phone. “Retail needs to recover and the midstream needs to sort itself out and that will take a bit of time. 2016 is still going to be a year o

  • Shale Boom Shows Strength as Rigs Gain With Oil Under $60

    For the first time in almost seven months, America’s shale drillers put rigs in oil fields back to work, and they’re doing it at a lower price. The last time they added rigs, crude futures were trading near $70 a barrel. Now, even after a rebound, they’re under $60. And yet drilling rigs rose in almost every major U.S. oil basin in the country this week, raising the total by 12, according to field-services company Baker Hughes Inc. The sudden rebound is a testament to how resilient U.S. shal

  • 【Life Science】J&J; vaccine completely prevented HIV in half of monkeys in trial

    An experimental Johnson & Johnson vaccine completely prevented HIV infection in half of monkeys that got the shot and then were exposed to high doses of an aggressive virus, results that spurred the company to test the vaccine in people, academic and company researchers said on Thursday. The international trial is underway in 400 healthy volunteers in the United States, East Africa, South Africa and Thailand. It is the first time since Merck's failed 2007 trial that a major pharmaceutical company has spo

  • Iran Faces Slow Road Back to Oil Market Even With Nuclear Deal

    As Iran nears a deal to ease oil sanctions after almost two years of talks, selling more crude remains a long way off. The nation’s goal of increasing exports 50 percent as soon as restrictions are lifted won’t be fulfilled, say Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Bank of America Corp. and Societe Generale SA. That would require an extra 500,000 barrels of daily output, which the banks say will take six to 12 months as OPEC’s fourth-biggest producer complies with terms of a deal and revives aging wells.

  • Chile Injects $225m in Fresh Capital into Codelco

    Chile’s government said it will inject $225 million in capital into state-owned copper miner Corporacion Nacional del Cobre, known locally as Codelco, to help fund its ambitious investment plans. The funds will come from Codelco’s 2014 profits, as the company gives all its profits to the state, the country’s mining and finance ministries announced in a joint statement on Tuesday evening Chile’s government last year committed itself to providing Codelco with $4 billion in state financin
