Gopeng MP Lee Boon Chye said today the memorandum of understanding signed between the Perak government and a China firm to explore rare earth minerals in the state is a different situation compared to Lynas' rare earths processing plant in Pahang.

"I think Lynas and our rare earths (exploration) is different. Lynas is where we import so-called rare earths, we are importing radiation whereas if we are mining our own domestic soil, the radiation is already there.
