TORONTO, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Great Rock Development Corp. (OTCPK: GROC) is pleased to announce that it has acquired rare earth extraction technologies for the purpose of supporting its exploration project in the Cobequid Highlands of Nova Scotia with a low cost rare earths extraction procedure in exchange for 10 million common shares of Great Rock Development Corp.  These shares will be subject to a Rule 144 restricted legend restricting the resale for a period of 2 years.  Additionally the company will pay a royalty of 8% on profits generated through the application of the technology.

Direct from the Technology Metals Summit 2013, a conference dealing for rare earths and critical minerals, Chairman Dr. Luc C Duchesne: "The technology promises to provide the company with a technological advantage in extracting heavy rare earths from the type of rock formation of the Cobequid Highlands.  Traditionally rare earths have been extracted from different rock types but not from the types in the Cobequid Highlands.
