Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RRS) ("Rogue" or the "Company") has completed the required Public Consultation process for the Silicon Ridge Project. The completion of the Public Consultation process follows a 30 period after the Public Consultation presentation held in the Municipalité de St-Urbain on March 24, 2017. Rogue has provided a report to the Ministère de l'Énergie et des Ressources naturelles ("MERN") documenting the Public Consultation process including all questions and comments submitted as part of the process, the Company's responses and the content of any meetings held with groups or individuals during the consultation process. Rogue will provide a summary of the questions/comments and the Company's responses on the Rogue website at www.rogueresources.ca within the next few days.

The Company appreciates the input of all those who participated in the consultation process and looks forward to continuing the ongoing interaction with all local and regional stakeholders to ensure open and transparent communication regarding the Silicon Ridge Project.

"Rogue continues to de-risk the Silicon Ridge Project and move steadily forward on the permitting process," stated Sean Samson, President & CEO. "We are encouraged by the interest of participants in the public consultation. Throughout the consultation period we found that a majority of the comments were supportive and focused on potential employment opportunities. We look forward to building a long term business that contributes to the local economy and provides employment opportunities for the local residents."

The Company has received approval for a mineral exploration license for the year 2017-2018 from the Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs ("MFFP") to complete its planned 2017 exploration work program on the Silicon Ridge Project, which is fully funded. The 2017 exploration program includes the stripping of overburden from approximately 4,500 square metres of area covering a portion of the quartzite on top of the ridge to expose the bedrock for detailed mapping, sampling and to confirm the depth of the overburden in the area. This information will benefit the Company by providing important information regarding the continuity of quartzite quality and improve the estimate of overburden to be removed over the Southwest Zone. The Company will meet all required conditions as provided by the MFFP to complete the proposed exploration work.

The Company has granted an aggregate of 95,191 restricted share units ("RSU"), subject to the acceptance of the TSXV, to officers of the Company in accordance with the Company's shareholder approved Equity Incentive Plan. The RSU's will vest immediately on the date of the grant.
