Resource Investing News takes a quick glance at a few rare earths companies that will be at PDAC 2015 and lists the other rare earths companies attending as well.

The 2015 PDAC International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange is coming up fast, and with over 550 exhibitors attending, it will no doubt be tough for investors to keep track of all the exhibitors. With that in mind, Resource Investing News has assembled lists of key companies that will be attending the conference across a variety of sectors.

Here’s a look at rare earths-focused companies that will be attending the show:

  • GeoMegA Resources (TSXV:GMA) — Booth 3019 — Also a company that recorded gains last year, GeoMegA has been making progress at its Montviel rare earths project in Quebec.
  • Rare Element Resources (TSX:RES) — Booth 2910 — In 2014, Rare Element Resources announced the results of a prefeasibility study for its Bear Lodge project in Wyoming, and joined the Critical Materials Institute (CMI), an initiative of the US Department of Energy.

  • Ucore Rare Metals (TSXV:UCU) — Booth 2110 — Most recently, Ucore released additional drill results from work at its Bokan-Dotson Ridge property in Alaska. The company is planning to incorporate those results to upgrade its resource at Bokan in advance of a feasibility study for the project.
