CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 20, 2008) - Ruby Red Resources Inc.

The Spirit Dream Property is 522 hectares in size and is comprised of four mineral tenures (claims).

Ruby Red will acquire the remaining undivided 30% interest in and to the Spirit Dream Property (which Ruby Red has been carrying on behalf of the vendors) in consideration for the issuance of up to an aggregate of 80,000 common shares of Ruby Red.

Visible gold mineralization has been identified at several locations on the property and selected hand samples have returned values ranging from 100 ppb to 30 grams of gold per tonne. Contour soil geochemical sampling has also returned anomalous gold values coincident with the surface showings of gold. Road access, trenching and drilling have been permitted on the Spirit Dream Property and road access has already commenced.
