Media Bulletin: Avalon CEO Don Bubar on BNN's Taking Stock Tonight at 5:40 PM EST (Wednesday, August 19)

August 19, 2009

Don Bubar, M.Sc., P.Geo, President and CEO for Avalon Rare Metals Inc. (TSX: AVL | OTCQX: AVARF) to speak live on BNN's Taking Stock tonight at 5:40 PM EST (Wednesday, August 19, 2009).

Hosted by Linda Sims and produced by Brett Tarver, Taking Stock airs live from 5-6PM EST. Don has been invited to speak to the increased interest on Rare Metals, in particular the growing demand for dysprosium and other Heavy Rare Earth Elements ("HREE") used in magnets and other applications. Don is also conversant in the growing number of new technologies that are driving the green energy economy; applications such as wind and solar power, hybrid and all-electric vehicles, all of which are made possible with rare earths. The interview will probably touch on Avalon's experience and progress in working in the Northwest Territories on what is expected to be one of the world's primary sources of strategically important HREE.

It is understood that Jack Lifton, the respected strategic metals analyst and commentator, will also be participating during the feature. This episode may be viewed with a 1-hour delay on or the content will be posted 24 hours later and accessed at the same site.
