New Production From Lynas and Molycorp to Pressure Rare Earth Prices

Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Great Western Minerals and Rare Element Resources

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 10, 2012) - The world's Rare Earth Industry has long been dominated by China who controls roughly half of the world's reserves and 95 percent of the global supply. China's stranglehold of the rare earth market may finally be coming to an end as Lynas and Molycorp have both made major announcements in recent weeks regarding increased production. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Rare Earth Industry and provides equity research on Great Western Minerals Group Ltd. (PINKSHEETS: GWMGF)(TSX VENTURE: GWG) and Rare Element Resources Ltd. (NYSE: REE).

Australia based miner Lynas last week received a temporary operating license for their new rare earths facility in Malaysia and will begin production in October. The company estimates it will produce 22,000 metric tons of rare-earth materials once it reaches full capacity in late 2013. The flood of new production is likely to pressure rare earth prices.

"The entrance of Lynas and Molycorp into production is likely to lead to a global surplus for most light rare-earth elements and we believe it is likely prices will continue to weaken over the near term, with very limited engagement currently from buyers," said UBS analyst Ben Wilson.

Rare Element Resources was specifically created to develop the Bear Lodge rare-earth-element and gold deposits in northeast Wyoming.
