Information Bulletin: Avalon Featured in Today's Globe & Mail Report on Business: Rare metals bring rare opportunities to mining

March 24, 2010

Today's Globe & Mail Report on Business contains an interesting article about Avalon and its Nechalacho rare earth elements project entitled "Rare metals bring rare opportunities to mining."

In addition to quoting Don Bubar, Avalon's President & CEO, the article also provided some comments about the rare earth business from John Hykawy, a research analyst with Byron Capital Markets.

Mr. Hykawy stated that, "It is those producers who have a combination of light and heavy earth elements who have the potential to reap big profits in the years to come. Most investors realize that the heavy rare earth elements command the higher price because they are rarer. Avalon has one of the highest levels of heavies located outside China."
