About Elissa Resources Ltd.
Elissa Resources is advancing its 100% %-owned Thor heavy and light rare earth element project in Nevada, 16 miles (28 km) east of Molycorp Minerals' Mountain Pass deposit and processing facility in California.

Additionally, Elissa has an option to earn a 100% interest on both the Sage Creek (Idaho) and St. Elmo (Nevada) gold projects. A phase one core drilling program is currently underway at Elissa's Sage Creek Gold Project to depths of 150 meters. Elissa is also reviewing and aggressively pursuing REE opportunities in other parts of Nevada and neighbouring states.
