Redhill Resources Corp.: Additional Mapping and Sampling Commences at Honey Comb Hills

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 17, 2011) -Redhill Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RHR) ("Redhill" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that additional mapping and sampling is now underway at the Company's Honey Comb Hills Rare Earth Property in Juab County, Utah. The Honey Comb Hills Property (the "Property") is 20 miles west of IBC Advanced Alloys Project also in Juab County.

This secondary program is intended to follow up on the previous mapping and sampling program that reported assays of up to 1043 ppm total rare earth oxides (TREO), 1690 ppm lithium, greater than 1000 ppm beryllium and 1270 ppm rubidium. Detailed mapping shows an anomalous area of roughly 500 by 1000 metres with a satellite anomalous area of 500 by 500 metres. In addition, both anomalies are flanked by quaternary alluvium and could extend substantially under shallow cover. The ongoing program includes an extensive soil sampling grid to possibly outline anomalous areas under shallow cover suggested by an earlier geophysical survey. In addition, detailed mapping and sampling of historical mine workings is also under way.

The Property encompasses an alkalic rhyolite flow dome complex which exhibits highly anomalous rare earth elements, lithium, beryllium, and rubidium. Mineralization occurs throughout the dome but appears to be higher in grade within a flat to gently dipping sequence of rhyolite tuffs and breccias.

The Honey Comb Hills Property is in the same county, and hosts a similar geologic environment, to nearby Spor Mountain Mine. Spor Mountain Mine is owned by Brush Engineered Metals and produces approximately 48,000 tonnes of bertrandite ore annually, grading 0.35% beryllium, representing nearly 60% of world production. Studies conducted by the U.S. geological survey and by the U.S. Bureau of Mines in the 1960's confirm the extent and grade of the beryllium deposits in this area.
