CANADA RARE EARTHS ACQUIRES 100% INTEREST IN 7,000 HECTARE MANOUANE RARE EARTH PROJECT, QUEBEC06:02 EDT Thursday, August 04, 2011(via Thenewswire.ca) Vancouver, British Columbia - (August 4th, 2011) - Canada Rare Earths Inc. ("the Company") (TSX-V: CJC) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire a 100% interest in the 6,955 hectare (69.55 km2) Manouane rare earth property located west of the town of La Tuque, Quebec, roughly 250 kilometers southeast of Val-D'or or 350 kilometers south of Montviel. The Manouane property covers a zone of alkaline granite where nearby geochemical anomalies in yttrium (Y), lanthanum (La) and samarium (Sm) are present. This association of rare earth elements ("REEs") may be found in geological deposits that may also contain zirconium, caesium, neodymium and gadolinium. Road access to the property is excellent. In 1966, Wynne-Edwards completed a large scale geological survey of the region on behalf of the Geological Survey of Canada and several outcrops were mapped on the property, consisting of alkaline granite similar in composition to the Strange Lake deposit (TSX-V: QRM). The most interesting reports were released by the Ministère des Ressources Naturelles et de la Faune du Québec in 1996 and 2009. They consisted of sediment geochemistry surveys that outlined REE anomalies (Cerium, Europium, Lanthanum, Samarium, Yttrium with Thorium and Uranium) and combined Yttrium, Niobium, and Lanthanum anomalies. The property is located in the central part of the Grenville Province and within the northeast limit of the Grenvillian metasedimentary central belt, a wide area dominated by metasediments. To acquire a 100% interest in the property, the Company will pay the Vendor $7,500 upon signing of the Letter of Intent and 350,000 shares of the Company upon TSX Venture Exchange approval. The vendor will retain no royalty and there are no other royalties payable on the property. The Company anticipates commencing exploratory work on the property this fall. Mr. Benoit Moreau, Geo and P. Eng., Vice President of Exploration for the company, is a Qualified Person for the purpose of NI 43-101 and has reviewed the geological information disclosed herein.
