TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 16, 2011) - Rare Earth Element World ("REE World"), an international organization dedicated to providing industry executives and investor market intelligence for the rare earths, rare metals and critical metals sector; is pleased to announce their Advisory Board. Formed in March 2011, REE World's mission statement is to provide industry executives and investors with an organized voice on issues and events of importance in this rapidly growing sector.

Tracy Weslosky REE World Founder and Publisher of RareMetalBlog comments: "REE World was created to provide what we are referring to as the 'technology metals' sector with a global organization that provides a reliable source of information and commentary on relevant policies that affects us all from green energy applications to export quotas and the impact on metal prices." Robin Bromby, Sydney based REE World Report Sr. Editor, says "The twice-monthly bulletin sent to subscribers is vital for anyone wanting to keep pace with developments." He adds "The mainstream media, when it covers rare earths, is still at Square One, explaining the 17 elements and how europium provides the colour red in television screens. REE World, by contrast, has moved on and is constantly breaking new ground in the rare earth story."

REE World is joined by senior executives from seven of the leading rare earth mining companies, three rare earths experts and three finance/business consultants from around the world.
