14th of July, PUTRAJAYA (Bernama) -- To ensure that mining for rare earth elements (REE) is done in a sustainable and sustainable manner and to stop unlawful mining, the Ministry of Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change (NRECC) is creating a standard operating procedure (SOP) relating to REE.

The National Mineral Council Meeting, presided over by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof in May, is where the decision for the development of the SOP was made, according to Minister of Natural Resources, Environment, and Climate Change Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad. NRECC was tasked with creating the SOP involved.

"We can't add value to REE, thus we don't want it shipped in a raw state.

At a news conference on the Green Electricity Tariff (GET) held here today, he explained, "This is because REE is in high demand all across the world, especially with the energy shift and so on.

He made remarks about the Kedah Police's success in locating human trafficking and REE theft operations in Bukit Enggang, Sik, Kedah. According to reports, nine people—four citizens of Myanmar and five citizens of the local country—as well as various tools thought to have been used to manually mine REE were detained last month. Four REE sacks weighing 99 kilogrammes were also reportedly confiscated.

In a different matter, Nik Nazmi stated that NRECC would convene a meeting with the necessary stakeholders soon to address the issue of the water level of Sungai Muda in Kedah.

We'll try to approach this issue more comprehensively, he said. Additionally, the National Water Service Commission (SPAN) is looking into the situation.

According to reports from July 10, SPAN Chairman Charles Santiago stated that one of the causes of the abrupt decline in the water level of Sungai Muda, from 1.8 metres to 0.67 metres within 11 hours, was a failure in the automation system that caused the gate of low dam number 14 to open up to 47 percent.
