High Ridge Concluded Geological Mapping, Sampling and 3D Induced Polarization Survey on the Germania Concessions in the San Mateo Area, Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - High Ridge Resources Inc. ("High Ridge") (TSX VENTURE:HRR)(FRANKFURT:HR2) today announced that it has completed a detailed geological mapping and channel sampling, as well as 3D induced polarization (IP) survey on company's concessions in the past-producing Germania mine area, near San Mateo, 95 kilometers east of Lima, Peru.

The detailed geological mapping of the Germania mine area included comprehensive sampling of the four major vein systems and the associated alteration zones. Two of the vein systems, Germania and Peru, which represent the major producers of the Germania mine, were previously mined to some extent. Both vein systems still contain known mineralized blocks and have not been mined below the bottom of the nearest valley floor. Other two systems, the 1500 metres long Sin Complemento and the approximately 500 metres long Belgica V systems, and the lesser Alaska vein system, were only opened in the past by several adits, but not mined.

The 3D induced polarization survey, as well as the previously concluded magnetic survey, has been performed by Jose Arce Geofisicos S.R.L., a Peruvian company. The 3D IP survey indicates that in Germania, significant chargeability anomalies are located along major sections of the Sin Complemento and Belgica V veins, and locally reach the deepest accessible IP penetration of 280 meters below surface. The high responses show numerous features with similar orientation as the Chanape IP anomalies (press release March 25, 2008) and are expected to be caused by metallic sulfides.

Gary Anderson, President and CEO of High Ridge Resources Inc. said: "Our geophysics program to date has been a huge success. In addition to historically mapped mineralization we have located numerous structures that were previously unknown due to the lack of any surface expression. We are anxious to proceed with drilling of all three projects on our San Mateo district property."

Other activities

Currently, an initial stage drilling program on Chanape is underway and will involve 3,000-5,000 metres from up to 9 platforms. The program is testing both the known, exposed on surface, polymetallic veins and intrusive breccias, as well as the much larger IP targets discovered recently. The primary targets cover an area of approximately four square kilometers and it is expected that this phase of the drilling program will take up to 8 weeks to complete.

About High Ridge Resources Inc.:

High Ridge is focused on large scale exploration projects in British Columbia and Peru. In addition to the Peruvian gold and polymetallic projects, High Ridge has three advanced exploration projects in British Columbia. These properties include the Chuchi property (Cu-Au porphyry), 30 km northwest of Terrane's Mt. Milligan project; Newton Mountain (Au-Cu porphyry), 35 km north of Taseko Mine's Prosperity project - formerly Fish Lake (Au-Cu porphyry); and the Silver Bay (Ag, Pb, Zn, and Cu porphyry) project, 10 km south of Cominco's former Bluebell mine.
