Great Western Minerals Group Appoints Internationally Experienced Metallurgist / Process Engineer to Board of Directors

TSX Venture Symbol: GWG             
CUSIP: 39141Y 10 3
OTCQX: GWMGF

SASKATOON, Dec. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Great Western Minerals Group Ltd. ("GWMG" or the "Company"), (TSXV: GWG) today announced it has appointed Marc Le Vier to GWMG's Board of Directors. The appointment is effective immediately.

Mr. Le Vier has been President and Chief Executive Officer as well as a Director of Texas Rare Earth Resources Corp. where he oversaw the completion of a Preliminary Economic Assessment and established the strategic direction and vision for that company. Prior to that, he spent over twenty years with Newmont Mining Corporation in senior metallurgical and management positions including General Manager of the Zarafshan/Newmont joint venture and Senior Director, Metallurgical Research and Development.

Mr. Le Vier holds a Bachelor of Science in Metallurgical Engineering as well as a Master of Science degree in Metallurgical Engineering, both from Michigan Technological University in Houghton, Michigan.

His professional affiliations and certifications include membership in the Society of Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration as well as the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America.

GWMG Interim President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Quinn said, "GWMG is pleased to have attracted an independent Board member with such strong qualifications and over forty years of experience in the mining sector. Marc Le Vier's knowledge of the rare earth sector, combined with his mining and metallurgical background, will be of great value to our Company as GWMG continues its transition to being a fully integrated rare earth producer. Given his philosophical alignment with GWMG's vertical integration strategy, we are confident that he will make a significant contribution to our Board of Directors and further strengthen our team."

Great Western Minerals Group Ltd. is engaged in becoming an integrated rare earth producer. The Company currently produces specialty alloys which are used in the aerospace, automobile, computer and high-tech industries. Produced at the Company's wholly owned subsidiaries Less Common Metals Limited in Birkenhead, U.K. and Great Western Technologies Inc. in Troy, Michigan, these alloys contain iron, nickel, cobalt and rare earth elements. As part of the Company's vertical integration strategy, GWMG also holds 100% equity ownership in Rare Earth Extraction Co. Limited, which owns a 74% equity interest in the Steenkampskraal Mine in South Africa. In addition to an exploration program at Steenkampskraal, GWMG also holds interests in four active rare earth exploration and development properties in North America.
