Donald Swartz, CEO of American Rare Earths, stated:
"We are thrilled to receive this support from the State of Wyoming and the WEA, which not only represents technical validation of the project by industry experts at the ERC and WEA, but a shared commitment to permit and develop a commercial rare earth mine and processing facility in Wyoming. This funding announcement comes on the heels of our most recent project update, and this non-dilutive funding will be used to meet those objectives. Wyoming is committed to lead the U.S. energy industry and support like this is why the state has been so successful in attracting investment in exploration and mining across the resource sector. This grant will assist the Company in expediting its project development of the Cowboy State Mine, and we are excited for things to continue to progress.”
