About Frontier Rare Earths Limited (TSX:FRO) (TSX:FRO.WT)

Frontier Rare Earths Limited ( is a mineral exploration and development company exclusively focused on the development of rare earths projects in Southern Africa. Frontier's flagship asset is the Zandkopsdrift rare earth project (95% economic interest held), which is located in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa and is one of the largest undeveloped rare earth deposits worldwide. After Molycorp's Mountain Pass and Lynas' Mount Weld projects, the Zandkopsdrift B Zone has the highest TREO(1) grade and the highest grade of high value HREOs(2) of significant advanced deposits(3) outside China. Zandkopsdrift's favourable location is expected to provide significant advantages in relation to capital costs, operating costs and development time compared to other rare earth projects currently being evaluated, and makes it well positioned to become one of the first significant new producers of rare earths outside China after Molycorp and Lynas. On 13 July 2011, Frontier announced a major strategic partnership agreement with Korea Resource Corporation ( in relation to the development of the Zandkopsdrift rare earth project.

Frontier filed a NI 43-101 report on Zandkopsdrift on 29 October 2010, which included a resource estimate of circa 43m tonnes at an average grade of 2.2% containing 950,000 tonnes TREO applying a 1% cut-off, of which 56% is in the Indicated Resource category. Frontier is well funded with approximately $48m cash and no debt and this strong working capital position will finance the proposed work programme of the Company and the expected completion of a Preliminary Economic Assessment, Preliminary Feasibility Study and Definitive Feasibility Study on Zandkopsdrift by the end of 2012. Frontier listed on the main board of the Toronto Stock Exchange in November 2010 and currently has 89,562,781 shares outstanding.
