Vancouver, BC, April 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rockridge Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ROCK) (OTCQB: RRRLF) (Frankfurt: RR0) (“Rockridge”) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has completed a non-brokered flow-through private placement financing for total gross proceeds of $472,500 (the “Private Placement”). The Company has issued 9,450,000 flow-through units (the “FT Units”) at a price of CAD $0.05 per FT Unit.
Each FT Unit is comprised of one common share and one warrant, each warrant entitling the holder to purchase one non-flow through common share for a period of thirty-six months at a price of CAD $0.07. In addition, the Company has paid finder's fees totaling $32,550 and issued an aggregate 651,000 finder's warrants to arm's-length parties, with each finder’s warrant entitling the holder to purchase one common share for a period of thirty-six months at a price of CAD $0.07.
The Company intends to use the flow-through proceeds from this Private Placement for exploration activities and the upcoming drilling program starting in May at its Raney Gold Project southwest of Timmins, Ontario. Rockridge is now funded and permitted for this drill program that will consist of a minimum 2,500m of drilling in 10-12 diamond drill holes with the potential to be expanded.
Raney Gold Project Regional Geology Map:
The historical geophysics and previous drilling, including hole RAN-20-06 which returned 27.9 g/t Au over 6.0m at approximately 100m vertical depth, has identified several key structures that could potentially be host to new high-grade gold zones. This planned drill program will utilize all exploration data to date with the goal to test the strike potential and depth continuity of high-grade gold mineralization intersected in previous holes. Specifically, the Company plans on testing the eastward and westward continuity of the Main Raney Gold Zone where there are coincident geophysical anomalies that have yet to be drill tested. Additional news will be forthcoming on the drilling program.
About Rockridge Resources Ltd.:
Rockridge Resources is a public mineral exploration company focused on the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral resource properties in Canada, specifically copper and gold. The Company’s 100% owned Knife Lake Project is located in Saskatchewan which is ranked as a top mining jurisdiction in the world by the Fraser Institute. The project hosts the Knife Lake Deposit, which is a VMS, near-surface Cu-Co-Au-Ag-Zn deposit open along strike and at depth. There is strong discovery potential in and around the deposit area as well as at regional targets on the large property package.
Rockridge’s gold asset is its 100% owned Raney Gold Project, which is a high-grade gold exploration project located in the same greenstone belt that hosts the world class Timmins and Kirkland Lake lode gold mining camps. Recently reported drill hole RN 20-06 intersected 28.0 g/t gold over 6.0 metres at a shallow vertical level of 95 metres, which is the best result from the project thus far. Rockridge’s goal is to maximize shareholder value through new mineral discoveries, committed long-term partnerships, and the advancement of exploration projects in geopolitically favourable jurisdictions.
