Texas Rare Earth Resources Announces Filing of Registration Statement for Planned Rights Offering

Management and Board Members to Host Live Roadshow Presentation on September 15th

SIERRA BLANCA, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/29/14 -- Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. (OTCQX: TRER), an exploration company specializing in the heavy rare earths, announced today that it has filed a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") with respect to a proposed rights offering of non-transferable subscription rights at a subscription price to be determined to subscribe for shares of common stock along with Class A Warrants and Class B Warrants, in the form of a Unit. The Company currently anticipates that the rights offering will be for up to approximately $1.6 million in gross aggregate proceeds. The number of Units offered and the number of subscription rights that will be distributed per share of common stock held on the record date will be determined by the Company's board of directors at the time of pricing the subscription rights, which the Company currently anticipates will take place in the next month, following the initial review of the registration statement by the SEC.

The Company plans to distribute to its common stockholders, as of a record date yet to be determined, non-transferable rights to subscribe for and purchase Units, with each Unit to consist of one share of the Company's common stock, one five year non-transferable Class A warrant exercisable for one share of the Company's common stock at $0.50 per share and one five year non-transferable Class B warrant exercisable for one share of the Company's common stock at $0.75 per share. In addition to being able to purchase their pro rata portion of the Units offered based on their ownership as of the record date for the rights offering, stockholders may oversubscribe for additional Units on an unlimited basis, subject to availability and proportional allocation of Units among holders exercising this over-subscription right. The Company anticipates that the record date and the final subscription price will be determined just prior to the time that the SEC declares the Company's registration statement effective.

Proceeds of the rights offering will be used to fund the first stage of the Company's advanced metallurgical activities at its Round Top project and to fund working capital and other general corporate purposes. The first stage of the Company's advanced metallurgical activities is referred to as the purification step and will be implemented in two parts: 1) bench scale evaluation of an ion exchange process and 2) bench scale evaluation of a solvent extraction process tailored to the deposit's mineralogy. Test work to date shows that the Round Top pregnant leach solution ("PLS") obtained by extracting the elements in the deposit's rare earth bearing minerals will present as a dilute sulfuric acid solution containing the REE's and several other potentially economic by-product elements such as beryllium, lithium, potassium and uranium. This solution will also contain relatively high concentrations of aluminum, calcium, fluorine, iron and sodium. The objective of this stage of the metallurgical work is to establish the most efficient way to process the REE from the PLS to a more concentrated solution that will then become the feedstock for the element separation plant. The Company believes that accomplishing this step of directly transferring the REE from the PLS by either method, without prior treatment or conditioning, will have the potential to both improve recoveries and to materially lower the capital and operating costs of the Round Top Project as presented in the December 2013 PEA. Once the purification step has been designed, the elemental separation process, mine and heap leach design and other feasibility related tasks are relatively straightforward.

Management and certain members of the board plan to host a live roadshow presentation and company update on September 15, 2014 in El Paso, Texas. Details will be forthcoming. The presentation will be webcast in real time for those not able to attend in person but will not be otherwise available after the live presentation. Participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions.

Rights offering materials, including a prospectus and other items necessary to exercise the rights, will be mailed to stockholders following the SEC declaring the registration statement effective. The prospectus will contain important information about the rights offering and the terms of the Units, and stockholders are urged to read the prospectus carefully when available.

This announcement shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy these securities, nor shall there be any offer or sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. A registration statement relating to these securities has been filed with the SEC but has not yet become effective. These securities may not be sold nor may offers to buy be accepted prior to the time the registration statement becomes effective. The offering will be made only by means of a prospectus which is a part of the registration statement. A copy of the preliminary prospectus contained in the registration statement may be obtained from the Company by contacting Anthony Marchese at 539 El Paso Street, Sierra Blanca, TX 79851, by calling 908-451-4234 or by email at [email protected].
