Solid Resources Granted Maximum Spanish Mining Subsidy for 2012


VANCOUVER, Nov. 21, 2011 /CNW/ - Solid Resources Ltd. ("SOLID" or the "Company") (TSX-V: SRW) (OTCQX: SLDRF) (Frankfurt: YRS) is pleased to announce that for the second year in a row, it has received official notification from the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Tourism and Trade that the Company has been granted the maximum subsidy for work committed for 2012 to be carried out on the Alberta-1 (Doade-Presqueiras) rare metals concession in northwestern Spain. The Company was initially granted the maximum subsidy of 20% for work completed on the concession during 2011.

These subsidies are awarded by public tender in competition with other exploration projects in Spain. One of the essential conditions in receiving the grant was that two of the three target metals in the Alberta-1 project - tantalum and lithium, are considered strategic industrial commodities in the European Union. Solid Resources further met all of the requirements of technical and financial solvency to carry out the work of the exploration program presented and approved over one year ago by the mining authorities.

For 2012, the Company intends to substantially increase the resource estimates on the concession with an extensive 6,000 m drill program. The current information available has given the Company an exploration target of over 50 million tonnes, not including the northern zone (Presqueiras).

"There is a significant benefit in undertaking a mineral exploration project in a politically stable and motivated country such as Spain." commented Greg Pendura, President and CEO. "This is a country that understands the impact to their economy and job creation by expediting a world class property such as Alberta-1 into a producing mine to supply the EU with strategic metals".
