SourcingLink.net Gives a Definitive Explanation of Rare Earth Elements Usage

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2014) - SourcingLink.net Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SNET) gives a more definitive explanation to the shareholders regarding assay results reported in the last news release.

SourcingLink.net CEO Anne Carioti feels, "We are well positioned with the Eldor Project to benefit from increased Rare Earth Metal prices. Rare earth elements prices are relatively low when compared with the all time highs.

"Rare earth elements are increasingly important to everyday life and progress. We, the management, feel that rare earth elements have gotten close to the bottom of the market and are poised for a rebound in 2015. Mining rare earth elements is essential for technology."

The data from the expedition confirmed the existence of rare earth elements at SourcingLink.net's Eldor Project. In addition, it has revealed significant values in the following Rare Earth Elements; Cerium, Lanthanum, Neodymium, Praseodymium, Samarium and Yttrium.

With an increase in everyday usage combined with the lack of recoverability of REEs, a turnaround in the pricing may be on the horizon. "In 2013, only 1 or 2% or rare earths in end-of-use products are recovered by recycling -- this compared to 90% for iron and steel." - Rare Earths Science, Technology, Production and Use by Lucas, Lucas, Le Mercier, Rollat and Davenport

With strong initial readings, SourcingLink.net is taking steps to be a long term supplier of rare earth elements.
