Norge mining deposits to supply EU CRM

The next biggest are located in China (3.2 billion tonnes), Egypt (2.8 billion tonnes), and Algeria (2.2bn tonnes), according to US estimates.

Given EU’s refugee deals with Morocco and Algeria at least the EU would have multiple sources to tap into for this material.
