GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Tasman Announces Date of Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders and Provides Additional Update on Norra Karr Mining Lease

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Jul 5, 2016) - Tasman Metals Ltd. ("Tasman" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TSM)(FRANKFURT:T61)(OTCQB:TASIF). The Company announces that it will hold its annual general and special meeting (the "Meeting") of the Company's shareholders (the "Shareholders") on Thursday, August 18, 2016, at 10 am (Pacific Standard Time) at the Company's offices located at Suite 1305 - 1090 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, BC, V6E 3V7. At the Meeting, Shareholders will be asked to, among other things, consider the Plan of Arrangement (the "Arrangement") with Flinders Resources Limited, as announced via joint news releases dated May 11, 2016 and June 21, 2016. Tasman is working closely with its legal counsel to consider alternatives to mailing proxy materials to Shareholders in the event of a disruption to mail service due to a possible Canada Post strike. Proxy materials will be made available also on the Company's website at www.tasmanmetals.com and under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com Also, further to the Company's news releases of February 23rd and March 31st 2016, the Company wishes to provide an update on the status of the mining lease ("ML") for the Norra Karr heavy rare earth element project in Sweden. On February 23rd, the Company reported the decision of the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court ("SAC") to cancel the ML which has been in force since mid-2013 on the basis that insufficient information was provided regarding potential impact on areas that surround the ML. The SAC decision was subsequently reviewed by Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation (Näringsdepartementet) to consider how the Mining Inspectorate should apply this new interpretation of the Mining Act. Tasman provided comment to the Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation as part of this review process. The Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation has now released their findings and determined that the handling of the Norra Karr mining lease, along with three other mining leases held by third parties, be returned to the Mines Inspectorate for reassessment. The Mines Inspectorate will consider all four mining lease applications including Norra Karr, and determine any additional information that is required as a result of this new interpretation of the Mining act by the SAC. Mark Saxon, Tasman's President and CEO, states, "We interpret the decision by the Swedish Ministry of Enterprise and Innovation as a reasonable and fair outcome from the decision of the SAC earlier this year. We believe the Mines Inspectorate, which granted the ML to Tasman in 2013, now has the opportunity to review the Company's application documentation based on the new interpretation of the Mining Act, and advise the Company on any additional data that should be provided." A further update will be provided when the Company gains additional information. Tasman continues to own 100% of the Norra Karr project under exploration license while the ML application documentation is being reassessed.

The TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange), nor the Frankfurt Stock Exchange accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this news release. Cautionary Statements. Certain statements found in this release may constitute forward-looking statements as defined in the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (collectively, "Forward Looking Statements"). Forward-looking statements reflect the speaker's current views with respect to future events and financial performance and include any statement that does not directly relate to a current or historical fact. Such statements reflect the current risks, uncertainties and assumptions related to certain factors including, without limitations, the successful completion of the Arrangement, the implementation of the Norra Karr preliminary feasibility study, competitive factors, general economic conditions, customer relations, uncertainties related to the availability and costs of financing, changes in corporate goals, unexpected expenditures, the ability of Flinders to identify and close suitable acquisitions, unexpected geological conditions, success of future development initiatives, imprecision in mineral resource estimates, ability to obtain necessary permits and approvals, relationships with vendors and strategic partners, the interest rate environment, governmental regulation and supervision, seasonality, technological change, changes in industry practices, changes in world metal markets, changes in equity markets, environmental and safety risks, and one-time events. Should any one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those described herein. Forward-looking statements cannot be guaranteed and actual results may vary materially due to the uncertainties and risks, known and unknown, associated with such statements. Shareholders and other readers should not place undue reliance on "forward-looking statements," as such statements speak only as of the date of this release. The Woxna project has not defined a mineral reserve and the previous preliminary economic assessment (PEA) on Woxna dated October 29, 2013, was superseded by Flinders' current mineral resource technical report dated May 11, 2015. As the Woxna facility is not in production but remains on a production ready status, any future decision to recommence mining at Woxna will not be based on a preliminary economic assessment demonstrating the potential viability of mineral resources or feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability. As a result, there is increased uncertainty and risk of economic and technical failure associated with such production decisions. These risks, among others, include areas that would be analyzed in more detail in a preliminary economic assessment or feasibility study, such as applying economic analysis to resources or reserves and more detailed metallurgy. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, socio-political, marketing or other relevant issues.
