About Rare Element Resources
Rare Element Resources is a mineral resource Company focused on rare earth metals, which, because they are essential to both advanced and existing industries and technologies, have been called the "enablers of modern living." In 2001, the market for rare earth metals in the US alone exceeded $1 billion, with most of those minerals imported from China. According to the US Geological Service, the Bear Lodge mountains in Wyoming host extensive occurrences of rare earths. Rare Element's Bear Lodge project covers much of these mineralized areas and the Company is positioned to become an important source of rare earth metals within North America.
