Pele Mountain Resources Inc. (TSX-V:GEM) (OTCQX:GOLDF) today announced that the Standing Committee on Natural Resources in Canada’s House of Commons has published “The Rare Earth Elements Industry in Canada”.



The Committee commenced its study late last year to “gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities related to the development of REE in Canada and around the world.” Pele’s President and CEO, Al Shefsky, testified via video conference at one of four meetings held by the Committee.

Mr. Shefsky stated, “We are pleased with the Parliamentary Study and are encouraged that our political leaders are studying the importance of the REE industry to Canada’s economic future. We will continue to advocate for a National Strategy to facilitate the development of a supply chain that includes critical rare earth production and separation in Canada within the next 3 to 5 years. With its world-class deposits, including Pele’s Eco Ridge Mine Rare Earth and Uranium Project (“Eco Ridge”), Canada is in a unique position to not only produce critical rare earths, but to create its own supply chain to support value added manufacturing in Canada.”



Please see Pele’s press release dated March 3, 2014 for more details regarding Mr. Shefsky’s testimony.



Pele is focused on the sustainable development of Eco Ridge in Elliot Lake, Ontario. Elliot Lake is home to one of Canada’s great historic mining camps and offers several competitive advantages in the race to develop an early-to-market rare earth supply chain. Elliot Lake…


--  is Canada's only proven historic critical rare earth mining camp and it
    also produced more than 300-million pounds of uranium; 
--  has vast and accessible critical rare earth resources and the geology,
    mineralogy, and pathway to production are well understood; 
--  has outstanding regional infrastructure already in place including
    highways, railway, electricity, natural gas, airport, and deep-water



The City of Elliot Lake supports the development of Pele Mountain’s Eco Ridge Mine Project and has said so publicly. Pele’s development team has operational experience in Elliot Lake from some of its most productive years.



Pele is collaborating with all levels of government, local First Nations, the private sector, and academia to advance the sustainable development of Canada’s first critical rare earth supply chain.



About Pele
