RX Exploration Advises Shareholders to Disregard June 22 Disclosure from the Company

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 22, 2011) - RX EXPLORATION INC. ("RXE" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RXE)(OTCQX:RXEXF) today advised shareholders to disregard a June 22, 2011 news release issued by RXE's former President and Chief Executive Officer Murray Nye.

The June 22, 2011 disclosure discussed test mining and test milling activities at RXE's Drumlummon property in Montana, and also discussed the Company's adjoining Bald Butte property. The disclosure was issued without the approval of the Board at a time when Mr. Nye was a dissident seeking to win control of the Board by way of a proxy contest.

"While we appreciate the dedicated efforts of RXE's employees at Drumlummon, we have concerns about how the June 22, 2011 disclosure could be misinterpreted by shareholders," said Lorie Waisberg, Chairman of the Board of Directors. "Because of our concerns, we caution investors not to rely on the June 22, 2011 news release for investment decisions."

"In our view, the June 22, 2011 news release may invite investors to extrapolate long-term results at Drumlummon on the basis of short-term activities that are not properly supported by a feasibility study or a history of profitable production. For the Bald Butte property, the June 22, 2011 news release prematurely announced preliminary discussions for a possible joint venture."

"RXE intends to provide updates to shareholders on developments and progress at the mine over the coming months as the exploration drilling and the requisite technical work is completed," added Darren Blasutti, RXE's President and Chief Executive Officer.
