This section shows the REE oxide prices per kilogram used to calculate the dollar value of a REE pattern. The default values are estimates based on publicly available information, and may not necessarily represent actual values in the current market.
Note that some sources report CeO2, Pr6O11, and Tb4O7 instead of the trivalent REE2O3 used here. This has a minor effect on oxide price as the metals in higher oxidation state are slightly diluted by additional oxygen.
The "Recovery" value is a weighting factor reported in percentage, with values lower than 100% used to exclude a portion of the REE from the total price budget.
