("AbiBow").

Vance White, President of Ring of Fire Resources, reported, "We are delighted to have closed on the purchase of this significant asset as we have a strong belief that it will be a 'Company Maker.'

As well, we would like to express our appreciation to all the parties involved in seeing this transaction through to its successful completion."

IBK Capital Corp. acted as financial advisors to the Company.

ROF's acquisition of the Project 81 properties and its transactions with Franco-Nevada has been approved by the TSX Venture Exchange.
