President’s Letter 2009 Ryan Silke

The year 2009 will surely be remembered as the year the rare metals suddenly emerged as mainstream mineral commodities and our early positioning in the rare metals business some 12 years ago was finally rewarded with increased market recognition and higher market valuations. While the 12 months ended August 31, 2009 will be remembered by most for the global economic crisis, Avalon Rare Metals Inc. (“Avalon” or the “Company”) not only survived the market turmoil, but has emerged stronger and better positioned for future growth than ever before. Avalon’s healthy treasury gave us the ability to accelerate work on our priority project at Thor Lake, while many other companies were curtailing work programs and struggling to survive. As a result, in 2010, Avalon expects to achieve several major development milestones on its Nechalacho REE deposit, at Thor Lake, including the completion of a pre-feasibility study by next spring, as we transition from an explorer to a mine developer and ultimately to a profitable producer.
