Rockridge Closes $1,260,000 Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) - Rockridge Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RRC) ("Rockridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company has closed the non-brokered private placement, issuing 25,200,000 Units of the company at a price of $0.05 per Unit for gross proceeds of $1.26 million.

Rockridge President, Karl Kottmeier, commented, "We are pleased to have oversubscribed our initially proposed financing. Current market conditions are difficult and I thank the subscribers to this financing for their ongoing support of Rockridge and the Fatou gold project. We believe that Fatou has the potential to be a world class gold deposit and we are committed to its successful development. Senior members of management and I recently visited Mali where we toured the entire Fatou license and specifically the current new area of drilling at Fininko. Drilling is proceeding very well under the guidance of our new Vice President, Exploration, Peter Camden Smith. We also had productive meetings in Bamako with the Malian Minister of Mines as well as the head of the DNGM (National Directorate of Geology and Mines). We were greatly encouraged by the "business as usual" conditions in Bamako and throughout southern and western Mali."

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF ROCKRIDGE CAPITAL CORP.
