The Tasman Metals Rare Earth Story Update’

Norra Karr Heavy Rare Earth (HREE)
and Zirconium (Zr) Project in Southern Sweden

Positive Technical and Financial Results Achieved from the NI 43-101 Compliant Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) at Norra Karr, Demonstrating Robust Economics and Long Mine Life

For the PEA Financial Highlights, Key Project Attributes and the PEA please go directly to:
Mark Saxon, Tasman Metals President & CEO: 
“The PEA clearly demonstrates the strong economics of this highly strategic project, with the majority of the projected cash flow sourced from the production of the critical heavy rare earth elements, dysprosium, terbium and yttrium.

Norra Karr is one of the largest and most economically robust projects amongst its peers, due to the high contribution of the high value critical rare earth elements, the substantial capital and operating cost benefits provided by existing infrastructure, and the simple mineralogy that allows ambient temperature and pressure processing.”
Dear Fernando:
Here it is!  This PEA certainly speaks volumes.   The project milestones are being met and the estimated timing to produce by 2016 is moving forward on track.

Stay Tuned - - - for the next Chapter in the Tasman Metals Rare Earth Story!!!
