Copies of these documents can be found on the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.

"In the third quarter we reported our first net income of $5.6 million as a result of our Joint Venture Agreement with TRECan. We believe that this agreement continues to provide Matamec with a strong vote of confidence in both the potential of the Kipawa project and the management of Matamec. We have developed an excellent working relationship with TRECan and continue to work closely together with the objective of becoming a quality low-cost producer of rare earths in Canada," said Andre Gauthier, President and CEO of Matamec Explorations Inc.

Operational Highlights for Q3-2012:

  • The Company recorded its first net income of $5,551,900 or $0.047 per share, from a gain on disposal of the Kipawa deposit related to accounting of the Kipawa Joint Venture agreement with TRECan;

  • Discover new HREE showings on Zeus : Certitude Nord, Makwa and Pakwa ;

  • Completed in October, a drilling campaign of 15 short holes on the PS Zone, a structure situated at two kilometers South-East of the Kipawa deposit. Results are pending;

  • From May to July 2012, SGS Minerals Service (Lakefield, Ontario) operated the mineral processing and hydrometallurgical pilot plants for the Kipawa HREE deposit;

  • A Memorandum of Understanding was signed on July 6, 2012, with the Algonquin communities of Eagle Village First Nation and Wolf Lake First Nation concerning the Zeus property, including the Kipawa HREE deposit, and a Consultation and Exploration Protocol is currently being discussed;

  • Continued regional community meetings, including harmonization roundtables and follow-up;

  • Continued work on the Definitive Feasibility Study for the Kipawa HREE deposit in which results are expected in the second quarter of 2013. The activities for the last quarter were focused on laboratory test works and optimization of the ore process flowsheet;

  • Initiated an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment for the Kipawa project by the firm Golder & Ass. Which is currently focused on data collection in the field to consolidate the baseline study and to confirm infrastructure locations for a potential mining operation;
