Avalon Rare Metals Inc. (TSX and NYSE MKT: AVL) is a mineral development company focused on the rare metal deposits in Canada. Its flagship project, the 100%-owned Nechalacho Deposit, Thor Lake, Northwest Territories, is emerging as one of the largest undeveloped rare earth elements resources in the world. Its exceptional enrichment in the more valuable 'heavy' rare earth elements, key to enabling advances in green energy technology and other growing high-tech applications, is one of the few potential sources of these critical elements outside of China, currently the source of over 95% of the world supply. Avalon is well funded, has no debt and its work programs are progressing steadily. Social responsibility and environmental stewardship are corporate cornerstones.
Avalon's primary asset is the 100% owned, advanced development stage project, Nechalacho Rare Earth Element Deposit located in the Northwest Territories, Canada. Avalon believes that Nechalacho is one of the highest quality undeveloped REE deposits in the world, unique in its exceptional enrichment in the heavy rare earths. Avalon also owns other rare metals and minerals project in Canada, of which two are at advanced stages of development. These are: Separation Rapids (lithium) in Ontario, Warren Township in Ontario, a calcium feldspar project, and East Kemptville, Nova Scotia, a tin-indium-gallium-germanium project where large inferred resources have been identified requiring further drilling to bring the project to the pre-feasibility stage.
