EMC Announces Name Change To Scandium International Mining Corp.

Reno, Nevada -- November 24, 2014 -- EMC Metals Corp. (the "Company" or "EMC") (TSX: EMC)is pleased to announce that it has changed its corporate name to Scandium International Mining Corp. The Company will begin trading under its new TSX ticker symbol, "SCY", on Friday November 28th, and the Company's website address will change to

Our new name better reflects the Company's commitment to developing scandium projects globally, and our current focus on the 100% owned Nyngan Scandium Project in NSW, Australia.

Shareholders can request a replacement certificate with the new Company name, but new certificates are not required and will not be automatically issued. There will be no consolidation of capital in connection with the change of name.

George Putnam, CEO of Scandium International Mining Corp., commented:

"The Board believes that our new name more accurately represents the company's tight strategic focus on our scandium assets, and signals our transition away from a broader specialty metals developer concept. This name change now sharply defines us as a pure scandium play, focused on the development of the Nyngan Scandium Project, intended to be the world's first primary scandium mine. The recently published Nyngan PEA reinforces this strategy by putting forward a project plan that is sized to enable an independent development by the Company. With a planned capital investment of less than US$80 million generating annual scandia production of approximately 36 tonnes, we have outlined an initial production platform that shows excellent potential profitability, is a right-sized development for our Company, and yet is capable of being a significant price and volume leader in the under-serviced global market for scandium."


SCY is focused on developing the Nyngan Scandium Project into the world's first scandium-only producing mine. The Company owns a 100% interest in both the Nyngan Scandium Project, and the adjacent Honeybugle Scandium Property, in New South Wales, Australia. EMC's interest in both Nyngan and Honeybugle could potentially be reduced to 80% in the future, based on certain current granted option rights. 

The Company filed a NI 43-101 Measured and Indicated Resource on the Nyngan Project in 2010, and recently filed a NI 43-101 Preliminary Economic Assessment on the Nyngan Project in October 2014. In addition to the Australian scandium assets, EMC owns a 100% interest in the Tordal Scandium/REE property in southern Norway, where we continue our exploration efforts, specifically for scandium and REE minerals.
