Liberty Star Uranium & Metals Corp. (“Liberty Star” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: LBSR) is pleased to announce it has engaged VogelHood Research LLC to monitor federal legislative and regulatory activity regarding rare earth elements (REEs).

In 2012 geochemical sampling at Hay Mountain revealed the presence of four and perhaps more rare earth elements (NR 122). A key component of the Hay Mountain Project phase 1 drilling program is to aggressively pursue exploration and development of a viable REEs resource. The Company’s CEO and Chief Geologist addressed shareholders on the topic in August 2013 (view on the Liberty Star website: Jim Briscoe on REEs).

Comments Briscoe: “Recent federal government activity focusing on the strategic and commercial value of REEs has been widely reported and may signal that we may have an opportunity to engage government funding to explore the REEs' development possibilities at Hay Mountain.”
