Rara Terra acquires interest in oil & gas leases
Monday, Nov 19, 2012
VANCOUVER, Nov. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - Rara Terra Minerals Corp. ("Rara Terra" or the "Company") today announces that it has acquired a 75% working interest in certain oil and gas leases in Trego County, Kansas for payment of $393,750. The Company has acquired the interest in an effort to enhance shareholder value over the winter while seasonal factors prevent the Company from pursuing exploration activities at its mineral projects in British Columbia.

To that end, the Company is waiting for independent evaluation of its recently completed geophysical surveys at its Xeno Rare Earth project in the Kechika River region of Northern British Columbia. Preliminary assessment of the surveys leads management to believe that there are numerous geophysical anomalies on the Xeno property meritorious of geochemical followup next summer.  Primary drill targets on the Xeno property will be determined after combining all geophysical and geochemical data.

In conjunction with the Trego County project, a finder's fee equal to 370,313 shares, at a deemed issue price of $0.10 per share, was paid in connection with the acquisition.
