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 is also
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.
