Rogue Resources Announces Drill Core Assay Returns Up to 99.95% Silica, Drill Program Completed at 11,768 Meters, 6,998 Kilograms of Core Shipped to Anzaplan

VANCOUVER, BC–(Marketwired – December 23, 2015) –

  • THE FEMELLE PROJECT’S HIGHEST QUARTZITE CORE ASSAYS 0F 99.95% SiO2 REPORTED
  • 71 HOLE DRILL PROGRAM COMPLETED AT 11,768 METERS (“M”)
  • 323.65 M PQ AND 329 M NQ CORE SHIPPED TO DORFNER ANZAPLAN, GERMANY
  • 6,998 KILOGRAMS (“KG”) SENT FOR CHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND METALLURGICAL TESTING

Rogue Resources Inc.
(TSX VENTURE: RRS)(“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has received high purity silica SiO2 drill core assays of up to 99.95% from the Lac de la Grosse Femelle Silica Project (“Femelle”) located approximately 42 kilometers (“km”) north of Baie-Saint Paul, Québec, and 4 km northeast of Sitec’s operating silica mine. These results are some of the highest purity levels recorded by the Company since drilling began in August of this year.

In 2015, the Company advanced Femelle significantly, a summary of which includes:

  • airborne magnetics (“Mag”) and very low frequency (“VLF”) surveys;
  • mapping to outline grid;
  • grid line cutting;
  • clearing and cleaning outcrops;
  • channel sampling and assays;
  • channel bulk sampling;
  • geological mapping;
  • drilling and infill drilling;
  • drill core assaying;
  • linking with world-renowned Dorfner Anzaplan in Germany;
  • contracting Met-Chem to provide a resource report and Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”);
  • core bulk sampling;
  • site remediation; and
  • initiating environmental studies.

This ambitious program was undertaken to potentially allow the Company to enter into a permitting and production decision more quickly.

“During the past 12 months, much has been accomplished. With the 2015 drill program completed, bulk core samples sent to Germany, and core being delivered to the assay lab on a weekly basis; the compilation of data now begins. Accelerating the exploration program in 2015 gave the Company a head start in potentially being able to advance the project to development”, commented John de Jong, CEO and President. “We are grateful for our supporters whom, in spite of current markets experienced by the industry during the past fifteen months, have chosen to support the Company by investing over $4.71 million in the Company’s two private placements.”

Drill Program General Update
Our initial 5,000 m drill program was expanded to 11,768 m, in part due to Dorfner Anzaplan’s request for NQ and PQ drill core, and the decision to conduct infill drilling in Q4 that had originally been planned for Q2, 2016. The testing that Anzaplan is presently undertaking, and the infill drilling at spacings of 40 m to 50 m which has been completed, provides an exceptional information base that will potentially allow for a much more robust and complete NI 43-101 compliant resource report and PEA in 2016.

Drilling has confirmed the strike length of the “G” quartzite unit at 1,950 m and the “H” quartzite unit at 500 m, both of which remain open at depth, width and length. The drill program was designed to intercept the quartzite located primarily above the valley bottom floor (ground level), therefore making it easier and more straightforward to extract. Down dip drilling completed in holes GF15-1 to 3 and vertical holes GF15-64 and GF15-66 were stopped at 261 m, 225 m and 234 m in quartzite and remain open at depth.

Anzaplan Testing of PQ and NQ Core
A four day site and project visit by Dr. Haus of Dorfner Anzaplan, Germany, resulted in modifications to the drill program and the potential to enhance the testing and reporting information required to advance the project more quickly. NQ and PQ core weighing 6,998 kg (combined) have been shipped by air to Anzaplan where chemical analysis for purity is currently in process.

Also being conducted is testing for thermal stability (decrepitation), shock tests, sensor based sorting, mineralogical characterization, mineral dressing and conventional comminution, physical treatment (attrition, magnetic separation, flotation, high tension separation), chemical processing, and laboratory melting tests.

Part of Anzaplan’s testing will identify the processes required to further purify the quartzite which will ultimately help determine usage(s) and value. These results will be incorporated into Met-Chem’s reports.

NI43-101 Resource Report and Preliminary Economic Assessment
Met-Chem, located in Montréal, Québec, will complete a NI 43-101 compliant resource report and at the same time, a PEA. Site visits by Met-Chem have already taken place and final reports are expected to be completed in Q2, 2016. Met-Chem will be working closely with Anzaplan during the next several months as Anzaplan completes its testing regime and works with Rogue’s exploration staff as they compile drill and assay results.

Environmental Studies
WSP Canada Inc. (“WSP”) continues with its environmental impact studies, water sampling, project studies to determine issues affecting human and social environments, and the regulatory framework for the mining of mineral deposits. WSP continues to advise the Company in all matters relating to the Environment Quality Act managed by the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et de Lutte contre les changements climatiques’ (“MDDELCC”) and Ministère de l’‰nergie et des Ressources naturelles (“MERN”).

Drill Program Hole Details and Assays
Seventy one drill holes have been completed, GF15-1 to GF15-71, for a total of 11,768 m.

  • Fifty-five drill holes were drilled on the G Quartzite and intersected widths of up to 112 m of quartzite, drilled between holes GF15-1 on section 550W and GF15-35 section 1300E, on a strike length of approximately 1,950 m (see URL below). The G quartzite has a true width between 32 m and 93 m of white to pinkish-red quartzite that is coarse, crystalline and massive to banded.
    • Twenty-seven G quartzite holes were drilled on the western side of the Quartzite G, over a strike length of 650 m with average true width of 93 m.
    • Twenty-four G quartzite holes were drilled on the eastern side of Quartzite G, intersecting quartzite over a strike length of 615 m with true widths of 35 m to 76 m that widens and has been followed up to the section 1300E drill hole GF15-35. The quartzite is white, coarse, crystalline, and massive.
  • Eleven holes were drilled on quartzite H, located 225 m north of Quartzite G, GF15-4, GF15-24, GF15- 26, GF15-27, GF15-29, GF15-31, and GF15-67 to GF15-71 intersecting between 44 m to 60 m of white quartzite, coarse grain, crystalline and massive. The quartzite has a strike length of 500 m and is open in both directions, east and west.
  • Six holes (PQ and NQ) were drilled for Anzaplan and shipped to Germany for technical evaluation. The assay and metallurgical results from these holes will be reported on when received.

Assays Received
Assays have been received for drill holes GF15-8, GF15-9, GF15-21, GF15-24, GF15-26 and GF15-29.

About Rogue Resources Inc.

With its diverse portfolio of properties, all of which are in good standing, the Company has the ability to focus its efforts and finances on the project that demonstrates the greatest market potential for return, the Femelle Silica Project. The projected completion of the extension by Québec Hydro of high voltage power to within 4 km of Femelle by the spring of 2016 is seen as a great foundational point to launch our silica rich quartzite property.

The Femelle Silica Project is located approximately 42 km north of Baie-Saint Paul, situated on the St. Lawrence River, and is 4 km northeast of the Mine Sitec silica mine, in operation for over fifty years. Access to the project is via a paved highway and well maintained forestry access roads.
