Ruby Red Resources Enters Into Option Agreement on Certain East Kootenay Properties

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2010) - Ruby Red Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RRX) ("Ruby Red" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, it has entered into an Option Agreement with 1532063 Alberta Inc. ("1532063") pursuant to which Ruby Red has granted 1532063 the option to earn a 60% interest in certain of the Company's mineral exploration properties in the Purcell Mountain and Rocky Mountain areas of south east British Columbia. To earn the 60% interest in the properties, during a 36 month period 1532063 must: (i) complete $1,250,000 in exploration expenditures on the properties; and (ii) make $140,000 in cash payments to Ruby Red. The Option Agreement also provides that 1532063 may increase its interest in the properties to 80% by: (i) completing an additional $1,250,000 in exploration expenditures on the properties; and (ii) making an additional cash payment of $75,000 to Ruby Red within 48 months of signing the Option Agreement.

In accordance with the terms of the Option Agreement 1532063 will complete exploration expenditures of approximately $250,000 on the optioned properties prior to October 31, 2010 in order to preserve Ruby Red's mineral interests in all its Purcell Mountain and Rocky Mountain properties. The principal exploration activity that 1532063 intends to undertake in this period is an airborne geophysical survey over significant portions of the properties that are the subject of the Option Agreement to help define diamond drill targets for succeeding exploration seasons.

After completing this transaction, Ruby Red will continue to hold a 100% interest in approximately 19,700 ha of mineral exploration properties in the Fort Steele Mining Division of south east British Columbia.
