About Rara Terra Minerals Corp.

Rara Terra is a Canadian mineral exploration and development company focussed on Rare Earth Elements (REEs). Rara Terra is seeking to identify and develop REE deposits characterized by less common mineralization. These unique deposits will bear those specific REEs that are widely agreed to have the strongest mid to long term technological relevance and sustainable economic value.

Due to significant challenges in the REE arena, Rara Terra has been assessing other opportunities to create shareholder value.  With that said, Rara Terra remains optimistic that REE deposits with high grades of heavy rare earths or unusual distributions of rare earth will have continued value for the foreseeable future.
