Ruby Red Resources Defines Gold-Bearing Shear Zone 9.5 km Long

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2009) - Ruby Red Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RRX) ("Ruby Red" or the "Company") reports gold values in soil and rock samples from its Eddy Property which is part of the Kimberley Gold Trend ("KAT"). Ruby Red is a small company with a large land position (44,000 ha.) in south-eastern British Columbia, Canada. Our mission: to define quality mineral exploration opportunities that can be developed in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner and that can contribute to the economic and social well-being of local communities.

Gold Values in Rock Samples from the Eddy Property, Kimberley Gold

Trend (KAT)

In this update we report on gold values from the Eddy Property, a 9.5 km long sheared fold hinge adjacent to and north of placer workings on the Moyie River. The Eddy Property is part of the Kimberley Gold Trend (KAT), an area estimated to be 30 km wide and more than 100 km long where Ruby Red has a significant property position.

Summary: A succession of gold-mineralized quartz veins occurs along shears zones within the hinge of a regional anticline at least 9.5 km long. Values to ~2 oz Au/tonne (57,000 ppb; ref. Table) demonstrate high-grade Au concentrations.

The fold hinge and associated shears are breached by placer-bearing streams (e.g. Weaver Creek) that flow southeast into the Moyie River, site of historical placer operations. Visible gold in shear-related quartz veins is commonplace, suggesting the shear zones are source of the placer gold.

Prime geological targets for ore-body-sized gold concentrations occur at offsets along the Eddy Property shear zones, called releasing fault bends. These structural features will be the focus of 2009 exploration expenditures on the Eddy Property. Five separate drill targets have been identified.

Scale: The 9.5 km length of the Eddy Property structures bodes well for additional discoveries stemming from the 2009 exploration program.

Regional Context: The Eddy Property is part of the Kimberley Gold Trend (KAT), a belt approximately 30 km wide and more than 100 km long that cross-cuts the southern Purcell Mountains, from southern Kootenay Lake to the Rocky Mountains east of Kimberley and Cranbrook, British Columbia.(1) The KAT contains more than 100 gold-quartz and polymetallic vein occurrences(2), a concentration not matched north or south of the trend, as well as several placer gold deposits with a cumulative production of more than 1.5 M oz.

Focused Fluid Flow - Key to Modeling Ore Body Formation: The gold-bearing Eddy shear zones formed in a convergent stress regime, meaning the structures were kept tightly coupled as they moved. This is an ideal structural setting for orebody formation because fluids under pressure, looking for pathways to escape, are channelled along localized dilation zones. Dilation, accompanied by fracturing, brecciation, veining and local faulting, occupies zones where faults bend (in this case to the right). These releasing, fault bends figure prominently in formation of the Eddy shear zones and represent prime exploration targets for high-grade gold orebodies. Interestingly, dilation zones tend to be more susceptible to erosion, explaining perhaps why they are located at the heads of placer-bearing streams where overburden is thickest. To date, Ruby Red Resources exploration initiatives have not focused on these covered dilation zones; however that will change in 2009.

Detailed Results: The following table provides analytical results(3) for grab rock samples collected along the Eddy Property shear zones.

Future Plans: Ruby Red will undertake a two phase program on the Eddy Property in 2009. Phase I, a regional soil grid, is designed to target additional mineralized zones along the Eddy structures; phase II, trenching and drilling, will test at least 5 mineralized targets in detail.

Did You Know: The Moyie placer deposits were last mined commercially in the 1980's and early 1990's for nugget gold. Nuggets in the 2-4 oz range were common; the largest reported was 8 oz. Weaver Creek, considered the richest placer tributary into the Moyie River, drains from the Eddy Property shear zones.
