Mr Roe is an expert consulting geologist with over 35 years of diverse experience in mineral exploration, mining-property evaluation, mineral-sands evaluation and supply-chain management.
“I am delighted with Bob Roe’s decision to join our world-class Advisory Board. The urgent worldwide demand for new and alternative sources of REE’s presents an extraordinary opportunity to those that can quickly supply meaningful quantities of REE’s to the marketplace. Medallion is focused on using all of its technical expertise and its wide-ranging knowledge of the REE industry to rapidly find the best new sources of REE’s. I am certain that Bob will be extremely valuable in assisting us with our efforts,” said Dr. Bill Bird, Medallion’s President.

Environmental remediation is also part of Mr Roe’s resume. He led a Kerr-McGee in-house group of geosciences professionals, which dealt with remediation of nuclear, mining and chemical-manufacturing sites.

Medallion is exploring the Eden Lake REE property in western Manitoba, under an option agreement with Rare Element Resources Ltd (AMEX: REE, TSX-V: RES) that provides Medallion with the right to earn a 65% interest in the exploration joint venture. A recent discovery, Eden Lake is one of North America’s most prospective REE projects, with potential for high values of neodymium and significant levels of the high-value heavy REE’s.
The company is also exploring over 42 square kilometres of the Red Wine peralkaline intrusion in southern Labrador under an agreement to option a 100% interest in six mineral licenses (subject to a 3% royalty).
