Rare Earth Metals Inc.: Appointment of Mr. Rojer (Qiufeng) Li as Chairman

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Rare Earth Metals Inc. ("Rare Earth Metals", "REM" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RA)(OTCQX:RAREF) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Rojer (Qiufeng) Li as Chairman and Director.

Mr. Li has unique and extensive experience in the rare earth industry having worked closely in the complete design and build of rare earth separation facilities, assisting with many others and operating one full spectrum (light and heavy) refinery for over five years. He has personal connections with owners and general managers of more than 20 of China's major rare earth separation refineries.

While maintaining his business connections in China, Mr. Li co-founded CEC Rare Earth Corporation in February, 2011 with the purpose of internationalizing his Chinese rare earth industry experience and connections.

CEC Rare Earth Corporation is working closely with the Company to develop and execute a vertical integration strategy within the rare earth industry. A cornerstone of the strategy is the design, build and operation of multiple full spectrum (light and heavy) separation facilities to be built outside of China. The Company expects to source concentrate for its refineries from multiple mines as they come on stream and to sell separated, individual rare earth oxides to many of the 200 largest international manufacturing companies which critically incorporate rare earths into their manufacturing processes.

The Company wishes to thank Mr. Steve Stares and Mr. Clint Barr for their many years of service in developing the Company's business to date. They have resigned as directors and will continue as advisors as the Company becomes a vertically integrated business within the global rare earth industry.
