American Rare Earths managing director and CEO, Chris Gibbs, said Fidelity is a great addition.

“Our vision is to build the next major Rare Earth and Critical Minerals Company and play a key role securing supply for the United States of America,” he said.

“We are delighted to have the confidence of a highquality, long term institutional investor such as Fidelity to support our growth plans. Fidelity is a wellknown investment partner in our industry and such a large initial stake demonstrates their commitment that we have the right team and world class assets to deliver results.”
