"Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. has a 20 year lease on and is developing [Round Top] a significant rare earth-beryllium-uranium property located in Hudspeth County, Texas, some eighty five miles east of El Paso, Texas. Independently published data indicates the property may contain over one billion metric tons of rhyolite containing low grade rare earths with a 67% ratio of heavy to light rare earths. Prior data from earlier exploratory work also indicates what management believes to be a potentially large high grade beryllium resource. Uranium is present in the deposit and preliminary sampling shows grades of over 1% U exposed in the mine."
- Round Top was brought to pre-feasability by Cabot Corp/Cyprus Minerals for beryllium.
- 80K feet of drilling was done by previous developers of the property, material has been re-logged and assayed.
- Ratio of heavy to light rare earth elements in the deposit is 67-70%, among the highest of any known deposit.
- Deposit is low-grade but massive in scale.
- TRER also has two silver-lead-zinc projects in New Mexico (Macho and Graphic) with historical mining and district-scale potential.
- Management team and BOD include industry veterans with significant experience.
