BE Resources Inc. Releases Corrected Rare Earth Assay Results from Drilling Program at the Warm Springs Beryllium & Rare Earth Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 27, 2011) - BE Resources Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:BER) announces that as a result of errors of a typographical nature found in the table of rare earth assay results set out in its news release of July 25, 2011, none of which are material or affect the TREO values, the Company is issuing this further news release to set out the corrected numbers.

The Company also clarified that the amounts in the table and accompanying notes set out in the Company's news release of July 25, 2011, as corrected below, were calculated by Gerald A. Harron P. Eng. of G.A. Harron & Associates Inc., a qualified person under National Instrument 43-101 who is independent of the Company.

Rare earth element assay results for four drill holes initially announced on July 22, 2011 (DH1, DH2, DH3 and DH19) are set out in the following table.

Hole No.
To (ft) Interval
DH1 765 788 23 82.50 17.50 0.69
DH2 843 878 35 82.89 17.11 1.56
DH3 620 678 58 81.84 18.16 0.91
DH3 1157 1255 98 60.31 39.69 1.95
DH3 1265 1297.5 32.5 67.14 32.86 1.89
DH3 1306.5 1564 257.5 75.51 24.49 0.26
DH3 1582 1736 154 75.22 24.78 0.78
DH19 194 295 101 61.46 38.54 0.97
DH19 468 474 6 76.67 23.33 0.09
1. Measurement is Imperial
2. LREO includes light rare earth elements (Cerium, Europium, Lanthanum, Neodymium, Praseodymium, Samarium) as oxides. LREO% = LREO%/TREO%. Cerium oxide, Lanthanum oxide and Neodymium oxide represent approximately 90% of the reported values.
3. HREO includes heavy rare earth elements (Gadolinium, Terbium, Dysprosium, Holmium, Erbium, Thulium, Ytterbium, Lutetium, Yttrium) as oxides. HREO% = HREO%/TREO%. Yttrium oxide, Lutetium oxide, Dysprosium oxide, Gadolinium oxide and Ytterbium oxide represent approximately 93% of the reported values.
4. TREO means total rare earth oxides and includes all LREO and HREO. Full assay results are available on the Company's website at

True widths have not yet been determined in respect of the above results.

The Company is in the process of examining these results more closely with a view to determining next steps. The Company believes that the above rare earth results indicate that additional drilling is warranted to more fully understand the rare earth mineralization. The ability of the Company to conduct further drilling is subject to financing and compliance with permit requirements.
