Peak Resources Announces Final Drill Results for Ngualla Rare Earth Project

Appoints Financial Advisors to Secure Funding

WEST PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 -- Peak Resources Limited ("Peak" or "the Company") (ASX: PEK) (OTCQX: PKRLY), the developer of a potentially low cost, long term rare earth project in Tanzania, today announced it has received final assay results for its 100%-owned Ngualla Rare Earth Project. Additionally, it has entered into agreements with two groups in Asia to assist in identifying and securing strategy funding partners for its Ngualla Rare Earth Project.

Additional details regarding the drill results and agreements can be found on its website at http://www.peakresources.com.au/investors/asx-announcements or on the ASX website http://www.asx.com.au/asx/statistics/announcements.do?by=asxCode&asxCode=pek&timeframe=D&period=W.

About Peak Resources

Peak is developing the Ngualla Project, a potentially low-cost, long term rare earth project located in south west Tanzania. Ngualla has been ranked as the fifth largest deposit in the world outside China, and the highest grade of the top seven.

Ngualla has a Mineral Resource of 170 million tonnes grading 2.24% of rare earth oxides (REO). Within the resource there is a highly weathered and near-surface zone estimated at 40 million tonnes at 4.07% REO, equivalent to 1.6 million tonnes of contained REO (see Table 1 below for resource classifications). Ngualla is also a bulk deposit which is largely outcropping. These attributes place the project among the world's most notable rare earth discoveries of recent years.

Ngualla is a potential low cost open pit mine due to its shallow outcropping high grade mineralization. The initial sighter metallurgical test work to date has been completed using a sulphuric acid leach process route suggesting a relatively less complex, potentially cheaper capital outlay and shorter time to production.
