Neodymium block magnets are currently selling for about $10 per cubic inch; Still about five times higher than two years ago. Our wind turbine magnets, N50 Grade 2 x 1 x 1/2 inch were $2.35 each. 24 required for a 6Kw turbine cost us $56.40 then. Now the same group will cost us $200 more per generator...for the magnets alone! Our product is still on hold. Art Devine, Magnetic Arts Div. Escondido, CA

I suspect that China's game plan, once mines and production are running, will be to dump its material on the market and force them out of business. Then repeat. It's called the "free market" a euphemism for monopoly.

RETA will be based in Washington but it is very important to note that it it not a U.S. industry alliance. It is an international alliance based in the US.
