Matamec Announces Completion of Kipawa Feasibility Study Work
Results to be published by the end of July
June 25, 2013 — Montreal, Quebec (Source: Marketwired) — Matamec Explorations Inc. (“Matamec” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:MAT)(OTCQX:MHREF) announces the completion of the Feasibility Study work on the Kipawa heavy rare earth project at Temiscaming, Quebec. The goal of the Kipawa mine project is to supply Toyota with heavy rare earths (“HREE”) for the production and marketing of hybrid and electric vehicles.
The Feasibility Study has managed to stay on budget and schedule. The study is now in the last phase of being written with the results to be published by the end of July. The Company will issue a press release closer to the date confirming the details of the announcement and conference call time.
Matamec Explorations Inc. is a junior mining exploration company whose main focus is in developing the Kipawa HREE deposit with TRECan. Following the positive conclusion of the PEA study filed on SEDAR in March 2012 (resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability) and the hiring of a VP Project Development and Construction, Matamec and TRECan decided to move directly to the feasibility study.
In parallel, the Company is exploring more than 35km of strike length in the Kipawa Alkalic Complex for rare earths-yttrium-zirconium-niobium-tantalum mineralization on its Zeus property.
