Redcorp Ventures Ltd.: Appointment of New Vice President, Mining and Engineering

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 10, 2006) - REDCORP VENTURES LTD. (TSX:RDV) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that Richard Goodwin has been appointed Vice President, Mining and Engineering Development for the Company. Mr. Goodwin's appointment will be effective Aug 29, 2006. Mr. Goodwin is a professional mining engineer with 22 years experience in underground mine operations, engineering consulting and corporate management.

Richard's experience with polymetallic massive sulphide underground mining operations, mine development and in-depth experience working with consulting groups will be a very valuable asset for the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Redfern Resources Ltd., which is in the midst of completing a feasibility study update for the Tulsequah project in northern BC.

Early in his career, Mr. Goodwin held a variety of mining and geotechnical engineering positions for ten years at Myra Falls Operations of Westmin Resources Ltd. until 1995 when he became a consulting mining engineer, first with MRDI Canada and later with Snowden MIC, where he managed Snowden's steady growth in Canada. Prior to joining Redcorp, Mr. Goodwin was Vice President, Mining for Yukon Zinc Corporation and managed the development, test mining and completion of feasibility studies for the Wolverine Project in the Yukon.

"I am very pleased to be joining Redcorp's management team as it moves Tulsequah toward its anticipated development. I look forward to working closely with the consulting engineering groups to finalize the feasibility study as the first step on this path", said Mr. Goodwin.

"Richard's extensive underground experience is a perfect fit for the developing Tulsequah Mine and the Company's polymetallic massive sulphide project in Portugal" said Company President and CEO, Terry Chandler. "He will be a key part of our team as we move to finalize the Tulsequah feasibility study by year-end 2006 and prepare for the expected development activities to follow."

Redcorp Ventures Ltd. is a Vancouver-based mineral exploration and development company with active projects in British Columbia and Portugal. Further information on Redcorp can be obtained on the Company's website at
