Gruenwald (euro adhoc) - Munich 28 November 2012: Tantalus Rare Earths AG
("TRE"), (WKN: A1MMFF, ISIN: DE000A1MMFF4), the explorer and developer of a
large near surface rare earths project in north western Madagascar, is pleased
to announce, under exclusion of subscription right's, the placement of 4.7
million euros of convertible bonds (ISIN: DE000A1R0VG7 WKN: A1R0VG) (the
"Bonds").

The term of the Bonds commences on 1 December 2012 and ends on 31 August 2016. A
total of 235,000 bearer bonds were subscribed at a price of 20.00 euros for
gross proceeds of approximately 4.7 million euros. 

The Bonds convert to shares in TRE at 20.00 euros per bearer bond (conversion

and 1% interest from 31 August 2013 until maturity. Interest is paid annually,

TRE AG will use the net proceeds of the Bonds to accelerate the exploration and
development of the Tantalus rare earths deposit, as well as commencing the
environmental and social impact studies required ahead of mine development.
