Rare Earths, Lithium, Gold and Uranium: Aben Resources names Netolitzky as chairman, director abn.v, tnr.v, czx.v, lmr.v, abn.v, rm.v, cgp.v, alk.ax, ng.to, abx, ree, avl.to, mcp, gwg.v, rm.v, clq.v, wlc.v, li.v, ggg.ax, ruu.v, pl.v, mdl.v, efg.v



  Go where the smart money goes or smart people or both - like in case with Aben Resources, former Consolidated Abaddon Resources. Company is reinventing itself and such heavy hitter as Ronald Netolitzky will not put his reputation on a line for a quick pump and dump. Rare Earths and Gold juniors were on fire last year, so we are going whether the value is and it is not realised by the market yet - the right people are the first sign of it.


"What is the common sense in the so different investment situations: when Erick Sprott  buys into Avino Silver, Silver Wheaton buys into Revett Minerals, Lukas Lundin buys into NGeX Resources and invest more to keep its stake in Sunridge Gold, Panasonic buys into Tesla, Tongling buys into Canada Zinc Metals and Nova Gold sells 50% of 1 mil NON 43-101 historical resource of gold at Shotgun for shares of TNR Gold and significantly increase its position in that company? All these situations are common only in one, but very powerful in the investment world thing: industry and/or company insiders are buying in. Can they be mistaken - yes, by all means - but we like to follow the "smart" money."

"Aben Resources (formerly Consolidated Abaddon Resources) is a Canadian gold, silver, rare earth and uranium exploration company developing properties in the Yukon, northern Ontario and northern Saskatchewan.

The Company has acquired from Eagle Plains Resources (TSX.V: EPL) a 100% interest in two gold exploration properties known as the Justin (Sprogge) and Hit projects, covering approximately 459 hectares, located in the eastern Yukon Territory. The drill-ready Justin property has the potential to host both high-grade and bulk-tonnage gold mineralization. Historical grab samples from the property reported up to 59.25 g/t Au, in addition to historical chip samples returning an average of 2.38 g/t Au over 22.5 metres.

Aben has also acquired a 100% interest in the Rusty Springs silver-lead-zinc property, located north of Dawson City, Yukon, where notable drill results include 1,140 g/t (33.27 oz/t) silver, 4.72% lead and 2.30% copper over 37.5 metres (123 feet) from surface. Furthermore, the Company has attained an extensive proprietary database for the Yukon as well as the right to certain prospecting permits in the Mackenzie Mountain area of the Northwest Territories.

Aben owns the 560 acre Raleigh Lake Lithium property located in the Kenora Mining Division of NW Ontario. Provincial government mapping in the 1990's identified a "Pegmatite Field" trending through the area and in 1999 and 2000, Avalon Ventures Ltd. released drill results including 1.50% Li over 6.9 metres, 1.00% Li over 4.1 metres, and 0.56% Li over 3.2 metres. Aben completed a winter drill program in 2010 on the Raleigh Lake property. The Company was very pleased with the drilling and significant results included 9.0 metres of 1.30% Li, 4.7 metres of 0.84% Li, 2.2 metres of 1.10% Li, and 5.5 metres of 0.77% Li.

The Selwyn Lake rare earth elements property is located in the Selwyn Lake Township of, NW Ontario. The property includes 13 claim blocks covering 1219 hectares covering the anomaly. The property is accessible by road and lies 4 kilometres from a railroad. The Selwyn Lake anomaly is similar in size and element association to the lake sediment anomaly at Strange Lake (REE) Rare Earth Element project of Quest Uranium in Labrador. The area has potential for rare earth or molybdenum pegmatites or Olympic Dam style mineralization

The uranium (U3O8) deposits of Saskatchewan, Canada are arguably the richest in the world. Aben has interest in approx. 160 square kilometres of highly prospective ground within the eastern flank of the Athabasca Basin in northern Saskatchewan.

Aben's Mann Lake Uranium property is located approx. 25 km to the SSW of Cameco Corporation's high-grade McArthur River Uranium Mine and 15 km to the NE of Cameco's Millennium U3O8 discovery in the Athabasca Basin. Canterra Minerals Corp. has earned a 60% interest in the Mann Lake uranium property.

The Company's Huard - Kirsch Lakes Uranium property is situated approx. 20 km to the NW of Cameco's McArthur River Uranium Mine in the Athabasca Basin. Denison Mines Corp. has earned a 51% interest in the Huard - Kirsch Lakes uranium property."

Mr. Netolitzky has been directly involved in the mineral exploration industry in Western Canada since 1964.
