In the future, bacteria could extract your REEs

Biologists have discovered bacteria in the Solfatara Crater in Italy that gobble up REEs, creating potential for biological processing of REE deposits. Do not bank on it any time soon, but where there is a nexus between bacteria and REEs, there just might be a way. The possibility is discussed

Geoscience Australia and its state partners have been shooting deep crustal seismic lines for decades, which means there could be a big reflection seismic traverse through or near your frontier exploration project. These lines were big news at the time, but are easy to overlook by subsequent generations of explorers.
