Rare earth elements exploration in Indonesia have began to grow for last few years was affected by restrictions on exports of rare earth metals from China to meet their own needs. Various countries becomes the object of the research potential of REE including Indonesia. Some region in Indonesia showed potential resources of rare earth LTJ, especially in Bangka Belitung, Kalimantan and West Sulawesi. BATAN has conducted research of rare earth elements from exploration through to processing of separation REE from radioactive elements. Besides associated with radioactive minerals, REE contained in insitu washing up to smelter from the tailing and rest of the tin mining. Thorium are compatible elements with REE, comparison of Th and REE content in soil/rock are linear. Monazite and thorianite both are radioactive minerals contain REE found in two prospect region in Bangka Belitung Island and Mamuju–West Sulawesi, respectively.
