Stonecliffe Capital Inc. Receives Conditional Approval for Its Qualifying Transaction

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 7, 2006) -


Stonecliffe Capital Inc. ("Stonecliffe" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:SNT.P) announces that it has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange Inc. (the "Exchange") concerning its previously announced proposed qualifying transaction with Ruby Red Resources Inc. ("Ruby Red"). Details of the proposed qualifying transaction can be found in the Joint Management Proxy Circular of Stonecliffe and Ruby Red which has been posted on the SEDAR website at Closing of the transaction is expected to occur on December 19, 2006 following the conclusion of the annual and special meetings of the shareholders of Stonecliffe and Ruby Red scheduled for this date.

In order to satisfy a condition precedent to the Exchange approval, immediately prior to the completion of the qualifying transaction, Ruby Red will complete a private placement of 55,500 units ("Units") at a price of $0.25 per Unit for gross proceeds of $13,875. Each Unit will be comprised of a Ruby Red common share and one warrant, with each whole warrant entitling the holder to acquire an additional Ruby Red common share at a price of $0.35 for a period of 12 months from the date of issuance.

Stonecliffe also announces that, subsequent to the mailing of the Joint Management Proxy Circular, the directors of Ruby Red approved an amendment to the terms of previously issued warrants of Ruby Red. Of a total of 1,850,000 non-transferable warrants issued and outstanding, Ruby Red had 1,089,000 warrants which entitled the holders thereof to purchase Ruby Red common shares at prices ranging from $0.20 to $0.35 and expiring on dates ranging from December 20, 2006 to March 12, 2007. Since the qualifying transaction is not expected to close until December 19, 2006, the directors of Ruby Red determined, subject to Exchange approval, that it was appropriate to extend the expiry dates of the warrants to May 2, 2007, a date consistent with other issued and outstanding warrants of Ruby Red.
