New Regulations Benefit North American and Chinese Rare Earth Explorers

The Bedford Report Provides Analyst Research on Rare Element Resources & Qiao Xing Universal

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Apr 15, 2011) - It is estimated that China holds about 30 per cent of the world's rare earth deposits, but accounts for over 95 percent of global production. Demand for the metals is expected to surge going forward, as the elements are an integral part of modern technology. With China cutting rare earth quotas, and imposing heavier taxes, consensus is that North American rare earth explorers stand to benefit. The Bedford Report examines the Rare Earth Elements Industry and provides research reports on Rare Element Resources, Inc. (NYSE Amex: REE) and Qiao Xing Universal Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ: XING).

China's Land and Resource ministry recently announced that it would not approve any new prospecting or production licenses for rare earths, tungsten or antimony until June 30, 2012. China has begun to impose more discipline on its rare earths industry with a series of policies aimed at cleaning up the sector. The country has already cut export quotas by 35 percent for the first half of 2011.

Chinese officials have explained that such high levels of rare earth production are not environmentally sustainable, and that China needed to retain supplies for domestic industries.
