Red Pine Exploration Provides Wawa Gold Project Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - June 2, 2015) - Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPX) (the "Company" or "Red Pine") wishes to provide a summary of work completed and highlight findings at its Wawa Gold Project, located about 2 kilometres east of Wawa, Ontario.

During the Winter/Spring 2015 programs, Red Pine completed more than 5,594 metres of drilling on the Surluga deposit ("Surluga") which to-date, is the largest gold deposit identified on the property. In addition to providing infill drilling results for an updated 43-101 technical report due to be released next week, the programs identified that gold at Surluga is principally distributed in a series of high-grade, 5 to 30 metre-thick ore shoots surrounded by halos of lower grade gold mineralisation.

Quentin Yarie, President and Chief Operating Officer commented, "Our exploration programs have confirmed the presence of high grade gold mineralization at Surluga in what was previously thought to be barren rock. The understanding and discovery of high-grade gold shoots within and beyond the Surluga deposit is significant. It tells us that there is potential here for a large deposit that could be exploited through a combination of open-pit mining for the near-surface gold zones and underground mining for the deeper ore shoots."

Additional zones of gold mineralization have also been identified in the hanging wall and footwall of the Surluga deposit. The Hornblende shear zone located 300 metres west of the Surluga shear, has the potential to host gold ore shoots of similar size as the shoots identified at Surluga. Both the Hornblende shear zone and the Minto shear/vein system, located 300-400 metres east of the Surluga deposit have the potential to increase the Surluga deposit gold resource.

Hanging wall mineralization outside the Surluga deposit include:

  • 2 metres @ 13.65 grams per tonne gold (Minto B shear zone - SD-15-07),
  • 12.16 metres @ 3.39 grams per tonne gold (Minto B shear zone - U1509L5),
  • 2 metres @ 5.66 grams per tonne gold (Minto C shear zone - SD-14-06), and
  • 4.12 metres @ 3.32 grams per tonne gold (Unnamed shear zone above 6-5 ramp - S214).

Footwall mineralization outside the Surluga deposit include:

  • 1 metre @ 51.7 grams per tonne gold (tension quartz veins - SD-15-11),
  • 10.27 metres @ 3.01 grams per tonne gold (Hornblende shear zone - U0007L7), and
  • 9.85 metres @ 3.16 grams per tonne gold (Hornblende shear zone - U1116L3).

Red Pine has also identified multiple gold bearing-structures on the property, all with evidence of high-grade gold mineralisation. The exploration targets related to the numerous historical gold mines and showings on the property will be the focus of the next drilling program as the Company looks to increase the property's gold inventory.

Further updates including timing of future drill programs will be issued over the next few weeks.

Wawa Gold Project Highlights

  • Advantageous land position in an under-explored gold camp;
  • Proximity to established regional infrastructure (roads, rail, airport, high voltage power lines, water);
  • Property hosted eight past producing mines with average grades of 8.9 grams per tonne gold;
  • Inferred resource of 1,072,335 ounces at 1.49 grams per tonne gold contained in 22.355 million tonnes (Surluga Deposit), open along strike and at depth;
  • Strike length continuity for some gold-bearing structures exceeding 2.5 kilometres with continuous gold mineralisation;
  • Strong indications for stacking of gold-bearing shear zones and high-grade quartz veins in the footwall and hanging wall of the Surluga deposit (Jubilee shear zone)
