RARE EARTH METALS OPTIONS PARTRIDGE RIVER CLAIMS, LETITIA LAKE-RED WINE CAMP, LABRADOR

Belmont Resources Inc. (TSX.V -“BEA”) and International Montoro Resources Inc. (TSX.V –“IMT”) are pleased to announce that they have entered into an Option Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Rare Earth Metals Inc. (TSX.V: “RA”) whereby RA can earn a 75% interest in the BEA/IMT Partridge River property (23 claim units) in the historical Letitia Lake-Red Wine rare earth metals camp of west-central Labrador. RA already controls a total of 851 claim units totaling 212 square kilometers in the emerging rare metal belt.

The Agreement provides RA with the option to earn a 75% interest in the Partridge River property by paying BEA/IMT $50,000, issuing 250,000 common shares of RA to BEA/IMT and incurring $250,000 in exploration expenditures over three years (including payments of $10,000 and 50,000 shares upon acceptance). RA will be the operator during the earn-in Option. Once vested after three years, the property would then be operated as a joint venture. If either party opts to reduce to a 10% interest, its interest would revert to a 2% NSR. One-half the NSR (1%) can be purchased by the remaining party for $1,000,000.

RA has established a 12-man camp nearby, with good access to Churchill Falls located 80 km by road to the southwest. BEA/IMT have previously completed an airborne magnetic and radiometric survey that identified several sampling targets for further investigation by RA.

The Letitia Lake/Red Wine district is a 60 km long arcuate belt of per-alkaline volcanic and intrusive rocks which hosts a number of significant rare earth element/niobium/beryllium/zirconium prospects which have seen little or no work since the early 1960s. The geological setting is analogous to the Strange Lake per –alkaline belt which hosts the Strange Lake rare metal deposits including Quest Rare Minerals’ newly discovered B-Zone.
