742 MINERALS YEARBOOK, 1978-79 carbon monoxide from carbon dioxide at temperatures within the range of present solar-thermal technology.'4 The Bureau of Mines began studies to increase rare-earth recovery from bastnäsite as well as to cut energy consumption in the flotation process. A patent application was filed for a rare-earth-metal cobalt magnet containing copper and magnesium developed by the Bureau. The magnet does not contain samarium as an essential component.1' Results of research involving the production, characteristics, and use of rare-earth cobalt intermetallic compounds and permanent magnets were summarized at the Third and Fourth International Workshops on Rare-Earth-Cobalt Permanent Magnets.'6 The 14th Rare Earth Research Conference was held at Fargo, N. Dak., in June 1979. The program reviewed all phases of rare-earth research and development and included sessions on spectrosopy; metallurgy and materials preparation; magnetism; solution, solvation, and analytical chemistry; X-ray and neutron diffraction; and rareearth technology. Publication of the proceedings was planned. 1Mineral specialist. Section of Nonferrous Metals. 2Fort, J. P. Availability of Rare Earths for the Rare Earth-Cobalt Permanent Magnets Market.
