CALGARY, ALBERTA--(MARKETWIRE - Oct. 11) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION OR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES.

Ruby Red Resources Inc. ("Ruby Red") (TSX VENTURE:RRX) announces that it has completed its previously announced brokered financing (the "Offering") by way of a Short Form Offering Document in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. Northern Securities Inc. ("Northern") acted as lead agent in connection with the Offering.

An aggregate of 2,840,000 units ("Units") of Ruby Red were issued at a price of $0.70 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1,988,000. Each Unit consisted of two common shares issued on a "flow-through" basis, one common share and two non-transferable common share purchase warrants of Ruby Red. Each warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of Ruby Red at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering. The net proceeds from the offering will be used to fund Ruby Red's exploration, development and acquisition programs as well as for general corporate purposes.

Of the 8,520,000 common shares of Ruby Red issued pursuant to the Offering, a total of 2,988,510 common shares are subject to a four month hold period expiring on February 12, 2008.

Northern received a commission equal to 10% of the gross proceeds received by Ruby Red from sales of Units pursuant to the Offering. In addition, Northern and its sub agents also received agent's options to acquire an aggregate of 284,000 units ("Agent's Units"), exercisable at price of $0.70 per Agent's Unit for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering. Each Agent's Unit is comprised of three common shares and two non-transferable common share purchase warrants of Ruby Red, with each such warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share of Ruby Red at a price of $0.35 per share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offering.

Ruby Red holds 100% working interests in 135 mineral claims (approximately 40,000 hectares), all located within 35 kilometres of Cranbrook, B.C. in the Purcell and Rocky Mountains.
