Canada Identifies Rare Earths as Critical Minerals

Vancouver, British Columbia: Canada Rare Earth Corp. (“Canada Rare Earth” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: LL) is currently conducting business in six countries: sourcing and selling rare earth products and establishing long term proprietary sources and value-add processing capability. Our goal is to become a secure, reliable and significant supplier of rare earth products.

On March 11, 2021 the Canadian Government issued an updated list of 31 critical minerals which include rare earths. Rare earths are critical in a multitude of industrial, consumer, medical and military applications such as electric vehicles, wind turbines, computers and mobile phones, medical diagnostics and fighter jets and submarines.

“As a proudly Canadian company with an expanding global business across five continents, Canada Rare Earth is fully prepared to direct our product flow to Canadian customers and users to meet their needs,” stated Tracy A. Moore, chief executive officer of the Company.

Chris Goodman, director of Canada Rare Earth and an experienced commodity trader explained, “the term ‘critical materials’ reflects high economic importance with a risk of supply shortage or interruption often due to geopolitical tensions, trade wars and/or a general lack of availability due to either the lack of the natural resource or the inability to process the materials. These materials, and rare earths in particular, are often fundamental to economic and environmental sustainability, emerging technologies and the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Recently, directors exercised 300,000 options and were granted options to acquire 2,000,000 shares vesting over 18 months and exercisable at $0.11 per share for five years.
