Additionally, critical minerals are characterized as serving an essential function in the manufacturing various critical products, the absence of which would have significant consequences for the economy or national security of the USA.
The notable changes from the 2018 list include the additional of nickel and zinc, as well as the removal of helium, potash, rhenium and strontium. Tungsten, lithium, cobalt, rare earth elements and platinum group metals all retained their inclusion in the 2022 Critical Minerals list.
