About Hudson Resources Inc.
Hudson Resources Inc. (TSX.V: HUD; OTCQX: HUDRF) is a Canadian mining and exploration company focused on developing its Rare Earth Element ("REE") project in Greenland. Hudson has identified multiple high-grade REE zones around the 35 km circumference of the 100% owned Sarfartoq Carbonatite Complex. Several targets are enriched in Neodymium - one of the most sought after rare earths and an essential component in many electronics and green energy technologies. Hudson is rapidly advancing the project and by the end of 2010 plans on releasing an initial 43-101 mineral resource model on one of the zones and will have initiated metallurgical test work. The project offers excellent access to infrastructure as it is only 15 km to tidewater, 60 km to the international airport, and there is excellent potential for nearby hydro-electric power. Greenland is a mining friendly jurisdiction with a streamlined permitting process. For additional information, please visit Hudson's website at www.hudsonresources.ca.
