VANCOUVER, B.C. – Tuesday, January 23, 2024, RARE EARTH RIDGE RESOURCES CORP. (the
“Company” or “Rare Earth Ridge”), is pleased to announce the retention of Mr. Wiliam (Bill) Bennett as a consultant to the board of directors of the Company.
Mr. Bennett was formerly a government MLA in British Columbia (“BC”) for 16 years in the Riding of Kootenay East. In addition to holding portfolios for Local Government and Tourism, Mr. Bennett was named BC Mines Minister three separate times over his 16 years. Mr. Bennett has a BA from the University of Guelph and a law degree from Queen’s University. Mr. Bennett is known across Canada for his knowledge of the mining industry in BC.
