Canada Rare Earths Completes Hole GO-3 at 525 meters, Ending in Carbonatite05:57 EDT Thursday, October 13, 2011(via Thenewswire.ca) Vancouver, British Columbia - (October 13th, 2011) - Further to the Company's news release of October 12th, 2011, Canada Rare Earths Inc. ("the Company") (TSX-V: CJC) has completed drilling Hole GO-3 at 525 meters. In this hole the Company has successfully intersected carbonatite starting at a depth of 24 meters, to a depth of 386 meters, before encountering a Gabbro Dyke consisting of 10 to 20% carbonate material from 386 meters to 414 meters, after which the Company continued to intersect carbonatite from 414 meters to 525 meters, the hole ending in carbonatite. This carbonatite discovery holds great potential for the Company as worldwide, carbonatite-related deposits are a major host for REE's. The world's most advanced and prolific REE deposits in production or development, Bayan Obo (China), Molycorp's Mountain Pass (USA), Lynas's Mount Weld (Aus), and Rare Earth Element Resource's Bear Lodge project (USA), not to mention Geomega's adjacent Montviel rare earth discovery, are all hosted by carbonatites. The Company is now moving on to location GO-4, spotted another 500 meters step out to the south of GO-3 along strike. The Company is hopeful the first assay results from this drill program will be received within the next 3 to 4 weeks. More information on the Goeland Rare Earth exploration program will be provided when available. 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 verified the geological information disclosed herein.
