    VANCOUVER, May 25 /CNW/ - Rare Element Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: RES) ("Rare
Element" or the "Company") confirms that the Company has no material
undisclosed news.
    This information has been disseminated due to today's heavy activity in

    Rare Element Resources Ltd (TSX-V:RES) is a publicly traded mineral
resource company focused on gold and strategic metals such as the rare-earth
elements. Rare Element and Newmont have entered into the Sundance gold
exploration joint venture on the Company's Wyoming property. Newmont has the
right to earn a 65% working interest in Rare Element's property, excluding any
rights to the rare-earth elements and uranium but including rights to gold and
other metals, by performing US$5 million in property work expenditures over a
five-year period. Newmont also has the right to earn an additional 15% working
interest by completing a positive project feasibility study.
    Rare Element's Bear Lodge property, Wyoming, also encompasses one of the
largest disseminated rare-earth occurrences in North America (M H Staatz,
1983, US Geological Survey Professional Paper 1049D). In parallel with the
Sundance gold-focused exploration project, Rare Element has completed a NI
43-101 compliant resource estimate and a Technical Report on the Bear Lodge
Rare-Earth Mineralization. The Company is also continuing with a metallurgical
testing program of the drill-hole samples collected during 2008 and planning a
2009 drilling program to increase the resources.
