Historic Core Sampling Program

Following its 2015 exploration programs, the Company speculated that some of the gold zones in the footwall and hanging wall of the Surluga Deposit were not entirely sampled in the past and that sampling gaps remained in some gold mineralized zones of the Surluga Deposit.

As announced on February 11, 2016, the Company is currently progressively describing and selectively sampling approximately 42,000 metres of historic drilling (from 318 underground and 119 surface drill holes) in the Wawa Gold Corridor to help fill these gaps. The work aims to extend and define additional gold zones in the footwall and hanging wall of the Surluga Deposit, and extend some gold zones of the Surluga Deposit that were not entirely sampled in the past. Red Pine intends to add the newly identified gold-bearing intersections to the existing inferred resource1.

Administration

The Company announces that the Board of Directors has approved the granting of 775,000 incentive stock options to the new CFO and consultants of the Company. The incentive stock options have an exercise price of $0.08 per share and are valid for a 5-year period (expiring March 5, 2021).
