Rye Patch Updates Investors on Receipt of Cash from Royalty

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2014) - Rye Patch Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RPM)(OTCQX:RPMGF)(FRANKFURT:5TN) (the "Company" or "Rye Patch") is pleased to update its shareholders on the Rochester mine Net Smelter Return royalty ('Rochester NSR'). To date, the Rochester NSR has delivered US$2.61 million or approximately CAD$2.85 million to the Company for the first three quarters of 2014. The Rochester mine pays a 3.4% net smelter return royalty quarterly to Rye Patch on each ounce of silver and gold produced and sold from the Rochester mine. The fourth quarter royalty payment is due on or before January 15, 2015. The royalty is fully leveraged to the price of gold and silver and is payable on 39.4 million ounces of silver equivalent.

The royalty contributed roughly US$1 million of cash to the Company for each of the second and third quarters of 2014, which was contributed to the Company's working capital. To date, the Company has completed drill programs on its 100% controlled Garden Gate Pass, Gold Ridge and Wilco projects along with a preliminary economic assessment ("PEA"), and a drill program at the Lincoln Hill project. The drill programs returned positive gold and silver assay results, and the PEA achieved an encouraging outcome. In 2014, the Company advanced its project portfolio, achieved substantive results, and completed its programs without requiring any equity financing and dilution to shareholders. The drill assay results and PEA are available on the Company's website at www.ryepatchgold.com.
