Traditionally SIP Resources began as a family managed enterprise based on the simple exploration of tin ore. As the business developed, the company expanded to take advantage of the opportunities available in the peripheral aspects of the mining industry.

The Chinese government has an interest to optimize the countries resources and as a result have suggested to the Land and Resources minister and his ministry that a short list of 11 regions or areas should be specifically designated for the mining of rare-earth metals thereby protecting the country’s resources.

SIP Resources previously operated out of these areas designated by the state and our operations were, and some still are situated in Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province in the Southeast of China. The company then faced a problem that only licensed and approved companies, authorized by the Ministry were permitted to survey and develop in the region.
