Rogue Resources Announces Drill Core Assays up to 99.6% SiO2 and “H” Quartzite Channel Samples Assays up to 99.9% Silica, Drill Program Increased to 7,500 Meters

VANCOUVER, BC–(Marketwired – September 28, 2015) –

  • CHANNEL SAMPLES COLLECTED ON QUARTZITE UNIT “H” ASSAY UP TO 99.9% SiO2
  • 21 OF 25 PHASE ONE DRILL HOLES COMPLETED
  • PHASE TWO DRILLING UNDERWAY
  • DRILL CORE ASSAYS ON ‘G’ QUARTZITE UNIT ASSAY UP TO 99.6% SiO2
  • SECOND DRILL ON SITE
  • DRILL PROGRAM INCREASED TO 7,500 METERS

Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that assay results 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 have been received. The drill core assays from the first drill hole completed on the ‘G’ quartzite unit returned assays of up to 99.6% silica. The channel sample assay results of samples R13B, R13C, and R13D recorded up to 99.9% high purity silica SiO2, were taken from the newly discovered “H” pure white, coarse-grained, massive and crystalline quartzite unit that demonstrates no apparent discolouration.

“The high purity silica assays of up to 99.6% in the drill core, coupled with the high purity silica assays of up to 99.9% from the three additional channels collected on the “H” quartzite unit is highly encouraging”, commented Company President and CEO, John de Jong. “The assays from the first drill hole are significant as they parallel to a large degree the channel sample assays located at surface above this hole. We look forward to receiving the assay results from successive drill core over the coming weeks and months, as we complete our 2015 drill program. This information will give us the data necessary to calculate the volume and consistency of silica purity throughout the quartzite units for a planned resource calculation in the New Year.”

The Company is also pleased to announce that it has expanded its current drill program to 7,500 meters. Twenty one of the 25 Phase One drill holes, comprising 3,150 m have been completed to date. An additional drill arrived on September 17th and has already completed two holes for a total of 350 m of the Phase 2 drill program. With the arrival of the second drill, all drilling, including the additional meters, are expected to be completed prior to the end of November. The drill plan has been designed to test the extent of Quartzite Unit “G” and the newly discovered “H” Quartzite unit, including their purity, depth, width and length of extension below surface. Upon receiving all of the assays and compiling the results, an independent firm will be tasked with preparing a NI43-101 compliant resource report and a corresponding Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”).

Channel Sample Update
Channel R13B, R13C and R13D collected on the “H” quartzite unit located 230 m north-northeast of the 1.65 km strike length “G” quartzite unit returned assays of up to 99.9% high-purity silica Si02. Channel sampling demonstrate that the quartzites are white, of high purity and have minor amounts of secondary minerals.

Drilling Update
All 32 drill pads have been prepared to date. Drilling takes place 24 hours per day and both Phase One and Phase Two programs are scheduled to be completed by mid-to-late November. As part of the Company’s commitment to preserve the local fauna and forest, remediation of each drill site and access point takes place immediately upon leaving the location and as the project progresses.

To date 23 drill holes have been completed, GF15-1 to GF15-23 (Table #6 & 6B), for a total of 3,150 m. Fourteen drill holes, GF15-1 to GF15-3, GF15-5 to GF15-13, GF15-21 and GF15-23, intersected quartzite over a strike length of 550 m on the western end of the Quartzite G (See map link). The quartzite has a true width of 76 m to 94 m of white to pinkish-red quartzite that is coarse, crystalline and massive to banded. On the eastern side of Quartzite G, five drill holes, GF15-17 to GF15-20 and GF15-22 (See map link), intersected quartzite over a strike length of 410 m with true widths of 35 m to 76 m that widens and remains open eastward. The quartzite is white, coarse, crystalline, and massive.

Quartzite H, located 225 m north of Quartzite G, was drilled by hole GF15-4 intersecting 44 m of white quartzite, coarse grain, crystalline and massive. The quartzite is open in both directions, east-west, and will be drilled within the next several weeks.

Private Placement
The Company is pleased to confirm that to date it has raised $1,700,000 of the $2,500,000 non-brokered private placement announced on September 9, 2015. The balance of the placement is expected to close on October 2, 2015.

Use of Proceeds for the Offering
The proceeds from the offering will be used to advance the Lac de la Grosse Femelle Silica property by completing the 2015 exploration program outlined in the Company presentation available on its website. The proceeds will also be used to initiate the 2016 exploration program which will include metallurgical testing, further drilling, bulk sampling, resource calculation and PEA as well as for general working capital.

About Rogue Resources Inc.
With its diverse portfolio of properties, all 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 recent investment of $382 M by the Québec provincial government in Grupo FerroAtlantica, one of the world’s largest silicon metal producers, to build a silicon metal plant located near our silica property is a great foundational point to launch this silica rich quartzite property. Additionally, Hydro Québec’s has begun extending their high voltage power lines to within 4 km of the Femelle silica site which will significantly help lower the cost of production in the event that the Femelle project progresses to that stage.

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

Qualified Person
The Lac de la Grosse Femelle exploration project is under the direct supervision of Eddy Canova, P Geo., and Senior Vice-President of the Company, a Qualified Persons (“QP”) as defined by National Instrument 43-101, assisted by Alain-Jean Beauregard, P.Geo., and Daniel Gaudreault, Eng., Geo. of Geologica Inc., and Dr. Trygve Hoy, P.Eng, PhD, all independent QPs as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
