LAKEWOOD, Colo. (Business Wire) -- Rare Element Resources Ltd.

David P. Suleski, the Company's Chief Financial Officer since 2011, ceased serving in that role effective December 11, 2013.

“We thank Dave for his contributions over the last three years helping us advance the Bear Lodge Project from an exploration play to a development opportunity,” stated Randall J.

Those skills also make us confident that he is the right person to guide us on the next phase of our journey as we continue to advance the Bear Lodge Project towards development.”

Mr. Zink most recently served as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer for Americas Bullion Royalty Corp. Prior to that, he was President of Eurasian Capital, the royalty and merchant banking division of Eurasian Minerals Inc.

Over his 30 year career in mining, he has also held high level positions with companies like Pegasus Gold, Inc. and Koch Industries with responsibilities including corporate development, credit and mergers and acquisitions. Early in his career, he spent more than 15 years with J.P. Morgan & Co. in commercial and investment banking roles covering the minerals and energy sectors. Mr. Zink also serves on the board of directors of Atna Resources Ltd.
