‘Rare Volcanoes and Rare Metals’ Frances Wall, Professor of Applied Mineralogy, Camborne School of Mines, University of Exeter and President of the Royal Geological Society of Cornwall

Some of the Earth’s rarest volcanoes are made of carbonate, so their compositions 

are more similar to sedimentary limestone than other igneous rocks like basalt! But carbonatites come from deep in the Earth’s mantle and are our most important sources of some of the rare metals – metals that we need to combat climate change.
