The spike in heavy metals in the groundwater around the Lynas rare earth processing plant in Gebeng, Pahang, did not originate from the facility, the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (Mestecc) said.

Mestecc deputy secretary-general Nagulendran Kangayatkarasu said both Lynas’ and the government’s monitoring of heavy metals in the groundwater there showed that it is now under permissible levels.
