OAKVILLE, Ontario, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Rock Development Corp. (OTCPK: GROC) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement for the acquisition of mineral rights for rare earths to add to its gold rights from the Byers Brook and Shatter Lake properties in Nova Scotia. Under the terms of the Agreement, Great Rock Development Corporation is acquiring the rights to rare earth minerals in exchange for 2 M Rule 144 shares of GROC restricted from resale for a period of two years together with royalty payments of 18% of net proceeds generated from the mining of the claims.
GROC has been carefully monitoring the activity by others in the surrounding areas as they established claims and began exploration as a result of the original report of gold finds by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources. Rare earth elements have been reported in the region and warrant further exploration, especially in combination with gold exploration.
