According to the Canadian Mining Journal, a new book entitled “Groundbreaking! America’s New Quest for Mineral Independence” (by Dr. Ned Mamula and Ann Bridges) highlights an anticipated national focus on mineral exploration in part as a measure of security. They write, “Groundbreaking! looks first at risk/reward, why minerals matter, and the U.S. dependence on foreign suppliers for critical minerals. There is a run-down of mineral wealth in the U.S., and how the country should rediscover that wealth. The book has a running theme of the role of domestic mineral production as a national security issue.”
