December 12, 2011 from 4:30PM will offer Investors an array of Key Investments in the Rare Earth and Specialty Metals sectors. REE is quickly gaining “strategic minerals” status on many of the world’s forward looking commodity consumption wish lists.
Minerals rich in Rare Earth elements are key for the development and manufacture of key components in clean energy technologies, automobiles and electronics. They are essential to almost every environmental friendly technology like wind turbines, photovoltaic panels and hybrid motors. It is estimated that all these Rare Earth Dependant Technologies are reliant on Rare Earth materials from China and a limited number of deposits outside of China for their production.
Investorium.tv will once again host a selection of great companies, and well informed Keynote Speakers. The condensed program follows below. The webcast will occur from 4:30PM on December 12th, 2011 live from the Basement in Sydney’s Circular Quay.

The Emerging Trends Report has identified 45 precious and specialty metals, not including gold, that are both critical to these sophisticated applications and experience some form of supply threat that will support these metals’ prices going forward, whether from physical scarcity or dissipative use, nationalization risk or byproduct sourcing, a lack substitutes or regular supply interruptions.
