Canada Rare Earth Enters into MOU to Acquire Mineral Rights

Canada Rare Earth Corp. (“CREC” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: LL) is pleased to announce entering into a Memorandum of Understanding (the “MOU”) to acquire mineral rights in South America (the “Mineral Rights”) containing heavy mineral sands.

The Mineral Rights, from which over 1,000 samples have been taken, have been studied for a number of years including studies led by Dr. Dorival Carvalho, Head of Capital Projects for CREC in South America. The Mineral Rights are situated within approximately 650 hectares in close proximity to applicable infrastructure. Sampling has confirmed that the heavy mineral sand material contains multiple commercially saleable minerals and elements including rare earths, zircon and ilmenite. Dr. Carvalho has extensive experience establishing and running operations for the processing of heavy mineral sands from sources closely similar to the Bom Futuro stockpile (referred to in Company news releases dated February 12, 2019, December 19, 2019 and January 22, 2020) in which the Company has a 20% interest.

The MOU allows the Company 12 months to conduct further studies and the right of first refusal to acquire the mineral rights.

Tracy A. Moore, CEO of Canada Rare Earth explained, “we are moving to increase our proprietary portfolio of rare earths properties as we simultaneously increase our independent supply arrangements. We are seeking properties that can be in operation within 18 months of acquisition and that contain multiple saleable elements such as cassiterite, zircon and ilmenite to defray operating costs and maximize profitability.”

We caution that testing and sampling has not necessarily been conducted to 43-101 standards and that there can be no assurance that our studies will lead us to acquire or operate the subject property or that operations will be profitable. The Company will provide progress reports as milestones are accomplished.
