Ruby Red Resources Announces Robert Thompson to Head 2009 Field Program on Kimberley Gold Trend

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - Ruby Red Resources Inc. ("Ruby Red" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RRX) is pleased to announce that Robert (Bob) Thompson, PhD, formerly of the Geological Survey of Canada ("GSC"), will head the 2009 field program for the Company in the Kimberley Gold Trend ("KAT"). Ruby Red anticipates spending up to $1,000,000 this year to pursue gold and base metal targets in the KAT. Ruby Red is a small company with a large land position (44,000 ha.) in south-eastern British Columbia, Canada. Our mission: to define quality mineral exploration opportunities that can be developed in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner and that can contribute to the economic and social well-being of local communities.

Dr. Thompson is a field geologist with more than 35 years experience. In the course of managing major multi-parameter geological programs for the GSC, he has mapped extensively in the Yukon, north-eastern British Columbia, the Queen Charlotte Islands, south-central British Columbia and the Kootenays.
From each project came innovative ideas that underscored geological understanding, new models, and resource potential. Most recently, he spearheaded a massive mapping and compilation project in southern British Columbia that is influencing the way we interpret Cordilleran evolution and is opening new mineral exploration frontiers.

Dr. Thompson is a graduate of Queen's University; BSc (hons) in 1968 and a PhD, PEng in 1972. In 1998, The Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists awarded him the R.J.W. Douglas medal for outstanding contributions to the understanding of sedimentary geology in Canada.

The 2009 program will focus on the Company's Eddy, Spirit Dream, Zinger and Zeus properties within the KAT trend exploiting the known gold mineralization and developing drill targets on the properties. The Company anticipates performing detailed geological mapping supported by soil geochemistry and limited geophysical surveys to develop these targets. Diamond drilling of the targets is anticipated this field season. Permitting for road / trail construction, trenching and diamond drilling is underway on all of the Company's properties including the Lov, Gar and Robocop.

Financing for the 2009 exploration program is being funded in part by the previously announced private placement of 10,000,000 Units (each, a "Unit") of the Company at $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one non-transferable common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire one additional common share at a price of $0.15 per common share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Company completed the first tranche of this private placement on June 2, 2009. Ruby Red issued 1,595,000 Units at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $159,500. In connection with the first tranche of the financing, the Company paid finder's fees totalling $2,400 and issued 24,000 finder's fee warrants which are exercisable into 24,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $0.15 per common share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. All of the common shares and warrants issued under the financing are subject to a hold period expiring on October 3, 2009. The Company anticipates additional closing(s) on or before June 26, 2009.
