Rugby Mining Limited ("Rugby" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RUG) announces that due to subscriber demand, its board of directors have approved an increase to its private placement offering. The increased offering will consist of up to 8,500,000 units (the "Units"), up from the 6,666,667 Units previously announced on June 27, 2016. The terms of the private placement financing will remain the same and each Unit will be offered at a price of $0.30 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $2,550,000 (the "Offering").
Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share and one half (0.5) common share purchase warrant (a "Half Warrant").

It is expected that insiders and their associates will subscribe for a significant portion of the Offering.
A material change report relating to the Offering is being filed less than 21 days prior to the closing of the Offering. The shorter period is necessary in order to permit the Company to close the Offering in a timeframe consistent with usual market practice for transactions of this nature.
Closing of the proposed Offering is anticipated to occur on or about July 25, 2016 and is subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
Proceeds of the Offering will be used to fund Rugby's exploration expenditures including at its Colombian Gold and Copper Projects, its Mabuhay Project in the Philippines and for administrative purposes.
