Rare Earth Metals Options Strategic Claims in the Red Wine Complex

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 2, 2010) - Rare Earth Metals Inc. ("RA" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RA) is pleased to announce that it has added to its land holdings in the Red Wine/Letitia Lake area of west central Labrador through the completion of an option agreement (the "Option Agreement") with Zimtu Capital Corp., Gary Lewis, Aubrey Budgell and Neh Pinseni ( the "Optionors") covering additional mining claims totaling 508 claim units (the "Zimtu Property"). The new claims are situated at six separate areas along the strike length of the belt and add potential strike extensions to the highly prospective mineralized zones already delineated at the historic Two Tom, Mann #1, Mann #2, and Michelin showings, as well as the newly discovered mineralization on the Playfair, South Block (see previous press releases dated August 4, 2010 and August 31, 2010). All airborne radiometric and magnetic data is being compiled on the new acquisition. Prospecting and mapping to further evaluate the Zimtu Property will immediately take place on the new ground. The Company now controls a total of 1359 claim units totaling 338.5 square kilometers and gives Rare Earth Metals up to 70% control of all staked ground in the emerging Red Wine Rare Metal Belt. A map of the new claims can be found on the Company's website at www.RareEarthMetals.ca.

The Option Agreement, which is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange, provides the Company with the right to earn a 100% interest in the Zimtu Property by making the following payments and issuing the following common shares to the Optionors: (i) $50,000 on signing and 1,000,000 common shares on TSX.V approval; (ii) $50,000 and 500,000 common shares on the first anniversary; and (iii) $50,000 and 500,000 common shares on the second anniversary. During the term of the agreement Rare Earth Metals will ensure that the claims are maintained in good standing. The Optionors will retain a 2% Net Smelter Royalty ("NSR") on the Zimtu Property; 50% of which (ie. 1% NSR) can be purchased by the Company for $1,000,000.

Field work, including prospecting, channel sampling, geological mapping, and diamond drill testing is continuing on the various known mineralized zones on properties previously owned by the Company and such work will extend to the new prospects. Results from this will be released as they become available.
