Solo International, Inc. Announces Property Acquisition and Joins Rare Earth Rush

MONTREAL--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2012) - Solo International, Inc. (OTCQB: SLIO) (PINKSHEETS: SLIO) "Solo International" or "the Company," a exploration and development mining company with a focus on deposits of rare earth metals and rare earth elements, announced today the following property acquisition, through its wholly owned subsidiary, 9252-4768 Quebec, Inc.

The Philadelphia prospect is located approximately 4 km NE of Notre-Dame-De-La-Salette, Quebec and consists of an approximately 60 hectare claim with no exploration restriction. Philadelphia is a past apatite (phosphor) producer. Apatite and rare earth elements (REE) are associated and often concentrated in carbonatites and associated alkaline rocks. The primary use of apatite is in the manufacture of fertilizer, since it is a source of phosphorus. Apatite is occasionally found to contain significant amounts of REE's and can be used as an ore for those metals since apatite is non-radioactive.

Michel Plante, President of Solo International, commented, "We are one of a number of companies exploring Quebec for a substantial rare earth project to meet the demand which is expected to grow substantially. We believe this property is strategically located within a region that rare earth can be found. We hope to begin a preliminary exploration in early 2012, which once finished will help us work towards the completion of a NI-43101. China accounts for 97% of global production, and some reports have shown there may be an impending shortage."
