American Rare Earths Limited (ASX: ARR | ADRs – OTCQX: AMRRY | Common Shares – OTCQB: ARRNF) (“ARR” or the “Company”), a leader in the exploration and development of critical minerals essential for the clean energy transition, is thrilled to announce the successful completion of a placement that raised A$13.5 million through the issuance of 45 million new fully paid ordinary shares at an issue price of A$0.30 per share (“Placement”).

This significant capital injection was met with strong enthusiasm from both existing shareholders and new institutional investors, underscoring the market's confidence in ARR's strategic direction and its commitment to developing the Halleck Creek Rare Earths Project in Wyoming, USA. The project is poised to play a pivotal role in providing a secure supply of critical minerals vital for the North American supply chain and for the broader global efforts towards sustainable energy solutions.

Use of Proceeds to Accelerate Project Milestones

The funds raised from the Placement, supplemented by existing cash reserves, are earmarked for a series of strategic initiatives aimed at advancing the Halleck Creek project. Key activities include mineral resource and extensional drilling, the progression of a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS), comprehensive metallurgical test work and process development, as well as critical heritage, permitting, and environmental activities. These steps are essential for the project's development and for ensuring its alignment with environmental and community standards.

In addition, a portion of the proceeds will be allocated towards general working capital, supporting the Company’s operational efficiency and its ability to meet project development milestones.

ARR is at the forefront of developing innovative and sustainable extraction and processing methods. The Company's approach not only meets the increasing demand for resources critical to the clean energy transition and US national security but also minimizes environmental impact.
