People start calling Malaysian state 'Wakedah' after it uncovers US$15B rare mineral
BY DALE JOHN WONG - DEC. 4, 2020

Even at the tail end of the year, 2020 is still adding to its list of curious events.

In Malaysia, the discovery of a rare yet-to-be-named mineral in the state of Kedah is causing a fair bit of amusement and chatter online, with constant comparisons of the situation to Marvel Comics' fictional African state of Wakanda.

On December 3, 2020, the Kedah state government announced a partnership with a yet-to-be-named joint venture company to explore and extract the rare earth element (REE) that is estimated to be worth up to RM62 billion (USD15.2 billion) in total.

The project will utilize pipe-based extraction as opposed to mining, with a commencement date still to be confirmed.

Commenting on the matter, Kedah Chief Minister Muhammad Sanusi Md Nor said, “This mineral is Allah’s gift to us in Kedah. Such a find would change the lives of our people forever."
