Will "Souldarite" vanish come Cataclysm?

Being from the Moonguard RP realm, I has distinguished myself in my community by collecting Old World blacksmithing recipies and selling the products to rich RPers and their companions. Recently, I got exalted with the Zandalar Tribe and added their Blacksmithing plans to my collection.

I am currently sitting at 92.8% of ALL available Classic Content Blacksmithing Plans.

But, something concerns me greatly. Blizzard has stated that Zul'Gurub will no longer be open once the Cataclysm expansion begins.

Will the gem "Souldarite" be removed from the game entirely because of this, or will it be moved to have a chance to drop from normal thorium? I'm concerned because if it is removed, the recipies I spent so long grinding for in Zul'Gurub will become useless!

Unfortunately, Mundle, those of us who moderate the CS forum do not have specific on the upcoming expansion. It would be best to ask in the profession or even the Cataclysm forum. Someone in the know may see your post and let you know.
