Red Lake Exploration, Inc. Announces Commencement of a 1000 Metre Drill Program on the High Grade Santa Rosa Copper-Gold Property

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 11, 2008) - Red Lake Exploration, Inc. (OTCBB:RLKX) is pleased to announce the mobilization of the drill from the Camila copper-gold project to the nearby Santa Rosa copper-gold project in the Candelaria iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) belt in the coastal cordillera of Chile.

The planned program consists of approximately 1000 metres of near-surface diamond drilling. The program is designed to extend to depth the mineralization currently the focus of small-scale, near-surface, mining. The average grade of the ore has historically been 1.3% copper. Gold was typically not extracted. Recently, a 1.57-tonne sample of high-grade ore sold to ENAMI, a Chilean national mining company, returned a grade of 19.78% copper and 13.90 grams per tonne of gold.

The Santa Rosa property is an intermediate-stage exploration project last drilled in 2004 by Latitude Minerals PLC. Previous work included an eight-hole reverse circulation drilling program, a property-wide geological mapping and sampling program, and an induced polarization survey. Multiple mineralized structures were identified, including a manto (a flat-lying mineralized body) with an exposed strike length of 350 metres and a depth of up to 10 metres. The full extent of this manto structure is not yet defined and is the focus of the upcoming drill program.

Core from the recent drilling on the Camila property has been logged and split and samples have been sent to ALS Chemex for analysis. A thirty-metre intersection with visible chalcopyrite mineralization has been sent for rush analysis.

Red Lake is focusing its exploration in the under-explored Candelaria IOCG belt of Chile that is host to Freeport-McMoRan's Candelaria Mine with reported mineable reserves of 470 million tonnes of 0.95% copper, 0.22 grams per tonne of gold and 3.1 grams per tonne of silver, and Anglo American's Manto Verde Mine with reported proven and probable reserves of 67.2 million tonnes of 0.63% copper in 2006.
