  7. 7. Investment Rationale 1. Dacha Strategic Metals Inc. “DACHA” has acquired a physical inventory of strategic minerals including Rare Earth Elements with its mainland China expertise 2. The physical inventory of Rare Earth Oxides and Metal is held in LME approved warehouses off-shore near primary users such as Japan and Korea 3. DACHA has the ability to trade in and out of multiple strategic minerals and is not limited to one specific commodity 4. DACHA can capitalize on the strategic minerals asset class without the mining risk associated with equity resource investments Dacha can become the “market maker” in Rare Earth Elements 7
  8. 8.

  10. 10. A Paradigm Shift in the REE Industry Security of Supply no longer just a commercial Issue It is now a Political Issue Rare Earth Supply Technology and Resources Transformation Act [RESTART] introduced to both the U.S House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate in 2010 Japanese industry minister asked Chinese Minister of Industry and Information for reductions to this year's export quota to be reversed. “We are concerned that rare-earth metals will not come to Japan in the future”. 10
  11. 11. Supply response • Growing Demand for REE in Green Tech • Limited Supply to satisfy growth in China • China cutting back material available for Rest of World • New projects outside of China have technical and financial challenges • Timeline for new mines is years away 11
