Toronto, Ontario – November 2, 2017 – Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: RPX) (“Red Pine” or “the Company”) has received assay results from the Company’s Summer 2017 surface sampling program of the Root Vein and the associated stockwork . The Root Vein is located north of the existing resource – Figure 1.
Root Vein System Channel Results*
Red Pine systematically channel sampled the exposure of the Root Vein and associated stockwork. Channel samples were taken in well exposed parts of the system and orientated perpendicular to strike. Figure 2 illustrates the location of the trenches with respect to the exposed Root Vein as well as their spatial association to each other.
*Readers are cautioned that composite channel samples are taken over a representative length in the targeted vein and stockwork system and as such remain selective by nature. The grades and mineralization present are not necessarily representative of the mineralization associated with the Root Vein.
- Trench RV-2: 4m @ 4.87g/t gold
- Trench RV-3: 4m @ 4.40g/t gold
- Trench RV-5: 3m @ 8.10g/t gold
- Trench RV-6: 2m @ 10.78g/t gold
- Trench RV-7: 4m @ 25.73g/t gold
- Trench RV-8: 1m @ 79.7g/t gold
The results of ALL the channel samples are as follows:
|Channel Number||From (m)||To (m)||Gold g/t||Identifier||Length (m)||Composite Gold g/t|

Quentin Yarie, President and CEO of Red Pine, stated, “The Root Vein has always been an area of interest to us. Recent identification of the potential for the stockwork to contain gold significantly changed our interest and we conducted the channel sampling program to assess the viability of the system to host gold.”
Red Pine Plans Continued Exploration – Root Vein Target of Interest
The Company will continue with its current exploration program which consists of both continuous operation of two drills and sampling of historic core. These results from the root vein warrant further investigation and this system within the hanging wall of the Jubilee Shear Zone will be targeted for drilling this winter.

On-site Quality Assurance/Quality Control (“QA/QC”) Measures
Channel samples were transported in security-sealed bags for analyses to Activation Laboratories Ltd. in Ancaster, Ontario. Individual samples are labeled, placed in plastic sample bags and sealed. Groups of samples are then placed into durable rice bags and then shipped. The remaining coarse reject portions of the samples remain in storage if further work or verification is needed..
Red Pine has implemented a quality-control program to comply with best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. As part of its QA/QC program, Red Pine inserts external gold standards (low to high grade) and blanks every 20 samples in addition to random standards, blanks, and duplicates.
