      Was a boom from 2016 up until start of year, now settled, but at least 3 Battery factories are planned. Plus Vanadium Flow batteries are also solidly researched, Plus Graphene Supercaps being developed, plus rare earths such as Dysprosium (Super Magnets – electric motors and generators) and Neomidium – Super magnets. Plus CSIRO has been doing research as to Geological Strata these rare earths are most likely (associated with Uranium)
