I think there's a shortage of primary Mg discussion, even though that's a critical part of increasing production, reducing price, minimising environmental impact, and developing more high-tech production methods. The concentration of world production on the Pidgeon Process may well be an artifact of cheap labour and minimal environmental pressure, so the question arises about future production methods.

Just thought I'd start the discussion...
