U.S. Tariff Policy Changes to Benefit American Rare Earths Ltd.

DENVER, May 15, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Rare Earths Ltd. (ASX: ARR | OTCQX: ARRNF | ADR: AMRRY) stands to gain significantly from the recent U.S. tariff policy changes targeting critical minerals and technology sectors. The announcement by the U.S. Trade Representative emphasizes stricter measures on imports, particularly from China, which is poised to escalate the demand for locally sourced critical minerals.

American Rare Earths, with its strategic projects at Halleck Creek in Wyoming and La Paz in Arizona, is well-positioned to capitalize on this shift. These sites, among North America's largest rare earth deposits, are central to the company's efforts to supply resources vital for the clean energy transition, including those used in electric vehicles and renewable energy technologies.

As the U.S. moves to enhance its domestic supply chains for critical minerals, American Rare Earths expects an increase in demand for its products. This policy shift aligns with ARR's ongoing initiatives to expand its operations and strengthen its market position in a rapidly evolving industry.

Donald Swartz, Chief Executive Officer of American Rare Earths commented:

“It is encouraging to see the Biden administration acknowledge that the United States can no longer rely on geopolitical rivals to supply materials essential to national security. The phase-in of the tariffs aligns very well with our American development strategy, as we continue to advance our flagship Halleck Creek magnetic rare earth project in Wyoming.”
