2 C ONTENTS O VERVIEW Overview of Rare Earths and the market Introduction to CEC Rare Earth Corp The building of Rare Earth Refineries Supply of Rare Earth Products CEC Rare Earth Corp. Confidential2

3 K EY M ESSAGES A significant gap exists for supply of Critical Rare Earth products and there is a race to fill it – CEC Rare Earth has proven capabilities to build refineries for these products The supply of these critical resources within the Western hemisphere will be highly valued for re-establishing supply chains and industrial bases outside of China A secure source of these strategic resources enables regional investment in related industries and businesses Rare earths contribute more to global climate change than any other factor – by enabling clean technologies such as hybrid cars, alternative energies and cleaner gasoline and diesel. Contrary to typical commodities and metals (Gold, Silver, Copper) the largest value add activities in Rare Earth products is the refinery: – Ore – $1 – Concentrate - $5 – Refined Rare Earth Products - $20 -$100 A major Rare Earth facility for Critical Rare Earth products established within 3 years can be competitive with the largest RE companies globally in revenues & profits.

13 C HALLENGES & O PPORTUNITY Global Rare Earth Supply and Demand Situation Global industry depends on China’s refineries (>90%) for Rare Earth products Demand for Rare Earth materials in new clean technologies and advanced applications is growing and exceeding global output Prices reflect this supply gap and the lack of Western rare earth refining capability Non-China based companies demand new sources of Rare Earth supply outside of China to support their business and products Establishment of Rare Earth refineries requires very specialized and hard to obtain expertise and experience The CEC Rare Earth Opportunity Unique team with technical expertise in the design, build and operation of Rare Earth separation plants –experience not available from other engineering companies CEC Rare Earth’s advantage provides supply for its customers through highly valued off take agreements to deliver significant revenues and profits CEC Rare Earth Corp. Confidential13

14 BUILDING RARE EARTH REFINERIES CEC Rare Earth Corp unique capabilities and the advantages CEC Rare Earth Corp. Confidential14

15 “Finding rare earths are only a small part of the process of turning the ore into usable materials” Dr. Steven Leeb “Mining is the easy bit: Separating rare earth elements is where the complexity comes in” Kidela Capital presentation “Mining is — believe it or not — the absolute easiest thing we do. Once we pull it out of the ground, that’s when things get complicated,” Mark Smith, MolyCorp past CEO CEC R ARE E ARTH A DVANTAGE Turn Key Refinery Projects – Proven expertise, experience and IP in design, construction and operations – Lower project risks of design flaws, construction cost overruns, operating problems and delays getting to market.
