Canada Rare Earth Exchanges Shares and a Lease for a US$1,200,000 Promissory Note

 

December 8, 2015


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Canada Rare Earth Corp. ("Canada Rare Earth" or the "Company") (TSX.V: LL) is pleased to announce that the Company has agreed to receive a promissory note due on November 30, 2018 in the amount of US$1,200,000 (approximately C$1,600,000 at the current exchange rates) in exchange for its equity investment in a privately held company with property in the West Indies and the related 25 year lease and option to extend the lease for 25 years for an additional US$1,000,000 due at the time of exercising the option.  The promissory note bears interest at 2% per annum for the first two years and 6% per annum for the third year.

 

The lease and option pertain to 15 acres of land situated on a 75 acre prospective gold property (the “Property”).

 

In the event the promissory note is not paid out in three years then Canada Rare Earth may reverse the transaction and extend the original lease period by the period of time that the promissory note was outstanding. The original cost of the investment and lease/option was US$1,100,000 (C$1,141,720 at the exchange rate then in effect).

 

Tracy A. Moore, Chief Executive Officer of Canada Rare Earth explained, “There are a number of parties interested in the Property and our lease and possible refinery complicate the financing and logistics of a third party developing the Property for the gold potential. Our core business is establishing an integrated rare earth business to supply top global customers with rare earths from sources situated outside of China. Our strategy does not focus on gold mining or exploration so we are willing to make the exchange. The promissory note proceeds, once collected, will provide additional financial resources for our rare earth initiatives in line with our corporate strategy. We continue to consider the West Indies as a suitable location for a rare earth processing facility and, in this regard, we are considering two other sites in the region.”
