Canada Rare Earth Enters into Binding LOI to Purchase Property in South America

Share

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Canada Rare Earth Corp. (“Canada Rare Earth” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: LL) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a binding letter of intent (“LOI”) to acquire a property in South America that is a source of mineral sands containing saleable minerals including rare earths.

The property encompasses over 75 million metric tons of tailings which have been produced by an existing mining operation and which will be reprocessed to extract saleable minerals including rare earth elements; land on which the tailings are situated; and sufficient land to reprocess the tailings and to construct a 20,000 square foot building.

Consideration includes US$12 million payable over a ten-year period with a US$600,000 deposit at the time of closing the transaction. Consideration also includes providing technological advice to the vendor to upgrade existing mining operations. 

Canada Rare Earth is arranging financing at a subsidiary company level, on a non-recourse basis, for the purchase of the property, for equipment to process the tailings, for construction of the building, and for working capital.

Closing of the transaction is scheduled for April 2, 2019 subject to a number of factors including the completion of due diligence to the satisfaction of Canada Rare Earth, preparing definitive agreements, and implicitly on raising financing on acceptable terms.

There can be no assurance that the results of due diligence will be positive, that reprocessing the tailings will be profitable, or that the financing can be arranged on acceptable terms.

On behalf of the Board

Tracy A. Moore, CEO and Peter Shearing, COO

Scientific Beta defends the role of the Size factor in multi-factor portfolios19.7.2019 11:32:00 CESTPress release

Scientific Beta defends the role of the Size factor in multi-factor portfolios Research shows that omitting the Size factor would be costly for investors New research from Scientific Beta, the smart beta index provider, has shown that the Size factor improves model fit, delivers a significant positive premium in the presence of other factors, and contributes positively to the performance of multi-factor portfolios. The Size effect is well established in the finance literature: stocks with smaller market capitalisation outperform large stocks over the long term. However, a common recommendation in the asset management industry is to remove Size from the factor menu, given its relatively weak post-publication performance. Scientific Beta's analysis differs from recent studies by smart beta providers in assessing the relevance of the Size factor. Rather than asking which factor has the best stand-alone performance, we ask what the marginal impact of the Size factor is when including it in
