Information Bulletin: Kaiser Bottom-Fish Online Provides New Commentary on Avalon Rare Metals Inc.

June 18, 2009

On May 26, 2009, Kaiser Bottom-Fish Online published a "Tracker" commentary entitled What makes Avalon's Thor Lake project special?  John Kaiser is a respected mining industry analyst with over 25 years experience, who specializes in junior companies. He has been following Avalon for many years and previously followed the Thor Lake project when it was controlled by Highwood Resources. John quotes Gren Thomas, the original driving force behind Highwood, as predicting years ago that "Thor Lake is world class in geological terms; one day it will be world class in economic terms."

Reflecting on the recent activity in Avalon's shares, which most observers have concluded was related to new commentary on the Rare Earths published in The Dines Letter, Kaiser notes that "Avalon has moved up not because Jim Dines said buy it, but because Jim Dines articulated what a lot of people were already thinking..."

The Tracker commentary provides an exceptionally detailed analysis of how to value rare earth resources such as Avalon's Lake Zone deposit and is worthwhile reading for anyone seeking to better understand the value proposition presented by rare earth elements.
