The End of China's Stranglehold on the Rare Earth Market May Be in Sight

Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Lynas and Ucore Rare Metals

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jun 18, 2012) - China's stranglehold on the rare earth market has been a major problem for the U.S. as the elements are crucial for the manufacturing of popular high-tech products. China currently mines more that 95 percent of the world's rare earth supply, which allows them to manipulate price and availability to the U.S. markets. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Rare Earth Industry and provides equity research on Lynas Corp. (PINKSHEETS: LYSCF) and Ucore Rare Metals Inc. (TSX VENTURE: UCU) (PINKSHEETS: UURAF).

China's monopoly of the rare earth market could be in jeopardy as countries have invested significant money and resources into domestic rare earth projects. Technology Metals Research states that there are currently 35 rare earth projects outside of China, with Molycorp's Mountain Pass operation being the most mature. The Northeast Corridor of Canada is also home to several promising mines. According to a recent Forbes article, it is possible that by 2020, 15-20 percent of the world's rare earth could be mined outside of China.

Lynas' strategy is to create a reliable, fully integrated source of Rare Earths from mine through to market, and to become the benchmark for the security of supply and environmental standards in the global Rare Earths industry. The foundation of this strategy is Mount Weld in Western Australia, the richest known deposit of Rare Earths in the world, and a state-of-the-art Rare Earths processing plant, the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP), currently under construction near Kuantan in Pahang, Malaysia.

With multiple projects across North America, Ucore's primary focus is the 100% owned Bokan - Dotson ridge REE property in Alaska. The company recently announced that custom processing has been initiated on a 20 ton bulk sample extracted from three sites along its Bokan Mountain rare earth deposit in Southeast Alaska. Excavating the metallurgical sample was approved by a Decision Memorandum on July 1st, 2011 from the US Forest Service.
