Join us for breakfast at the InterContinental Hotel and listen to some of the world's leading rare earth mineral companies discuss their projects and how they plan to play their part in addressing a looming shortage of these unusual metals that play a vital role in virtually every electronic product.
Please arrive at 7.30am for a prompt 7.45am start. There will be a complementary continental breakfast available from 7.30am. This event is free to attend, but places will be limited to 75. Priority will be given to analysts, brokers, fund managers and retail investors. It is expected that this forum will be oversubscribed, so please register to avoid disappointment.
Over breakfast attendees will hear from the directors of Avalon Rare Metals (TSX: AVL), Lynas Corporation (ASX: LYC), Great Western Minerals Group (TSX-V: GWG), Dacha Capital Inc. (TSX-V: DAC) and Greenland Minerals and Energy (ASX: GGG).
Avalon Rare Metals, formerly Avalon Ventures Ltd, is a Canadian junior mineral exploration and development company with a primary focus on the rare metals and minerals that are in increasing demand for high technology and environmentally-beneficial applications. These include lithium, tantalum, indium, gallium, rare earth elements ("REE") such as neodymium and terbium and rare minerals such as calcium feldspar. Avalon presently owns five rare metals and minerals projects in Canada, three of which are at an advanced stage of development.
Lynas owns the richest deposit of Rare Earths in the world at Mt Weld, 35km south of Laverton in Western Australia. A feasibility study has been completed on the Rare Earths deposit and all Australian approvals required for project development have been received. Lynas' Mt Weld will be the first fully integrated new source of rare earth supply outside of China.
Great Western Minerals Group Ltd. is a Canadian-based company with six rare earth exploration and development properties in North America with an option on a sizable additional property in South Africa. In addition, as part of the Company's strategy to pursue a vertically-integrated business model, the Company's wholly-owned subsidiaries of Less Common Metals Limited located in Birkenhead UK, and Great Western Technologies Inc., located in Troy, Michigan, produce a variety of specialty alloys for use in the battery, magnet and aerospace industries. These "designer" alloys include those containing copper, nickel, cobalt and the rare earth elements.
Dacha Capital Inc. is an investment holding company whose primary investment objective is to achieve capital appreciation by making opportunistic, special situation investments as deemed attractive by the Board of Directors from time to time across various sectors. The Corporation may look to make investments in minerals that are considered undervalued or strategic to global growth and by investing in, holding, selling and otherwise transacting in physical amounts of such minerals.
An interim pre-feasibility report into Greenland Mineral's Kvanefjeld Project in Greenland has been completed, which indicates that Kvanefjeld could be developed as a world class, economically robust and large scale mining operation. If developed, the Kvanefjeld resource of rare earth oxides would become one of the world's largest REO resource by either JORC or Canadian NI 43-101 standards.
