  • 2018 drilling campaign totalled 1910 metres, focussed on the Snow White Main Zone
  • Metallurgical analysis underway with ANZAPLAN (Germany)
  • Initial analytical results from 7 drillholes confirms high purity silica mineralization through the Main Zone
  • Preliminary identification of an additional quartz zone to the South, requiring more review
  • Agreement signed with the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers, for 2018 Hauling Permit

TORONTO, ON – Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce initial analytical results from the 2018 drilling campaign on the Snow White quartz project, located near Massey, Ontario, Canada (“Snow White” or the “Project”). Analytical results from the first 7 holes of the 36 hole diamond drill hole program submitted to ALS Global are reported and have confirmed the high purity silica mineralization previously identified in surface sampling and historic diamond drill holes. A total of 1910 metres of diamond drilling were completed (vs. the 1800 metres originally planned) on the Main Zone of the Snow White Property in May and June of 2018. Drilling was designed to test the Main Zone on 20 metre sections with a 10 metre hole separation.

The drill results reported in this release are from the Snow White Main Zone and are testing the continuity of the silica grade, the distribution of impurities within the quartz vein and the overall dimensions of the silica mineralization. Significant widths of high purity silica were encountered during the drill program that meet or exceed the specifications required for silicon metal production. The drill hole locations for the reported analytical results are summarized in Table 1 and the analytical results have been summarized in Table 2.

“These initial high purity drill results received for the first 7 holes on the Snow White Project from the 2018 drill program were highly successful in confirming the presence of high purity silica from the Main Zone,” states Paul Davis, Vice President Technical. “Some drill intercepts reported meet or exceed the specifications required for silicon metal

production without any additional sorting and based upon our examination of the drill core and the distribution of granitic inclusions and trace minerals and when combined with the positive optical sorting tests, I am certain that a majority of silica mineralization will meet or exceed these specifications after sorting, using Direct-Ship. In addition to the commodity market, the physical characteristics of the quartz, including colour, make it a potentially attractive product for specialized markets with some further processing and upgrading.”

Rogue’s technical team continues to validate the drill hole data, analytical results and interpretations of the silica mineralization and is working closely with M.Plan International Limited (“M.Plan”) in this analysis. M.Plan continues their preparation of an initial mineral resource estimate for the Main Zone at the Snow White Silica Project and a technical report (the “Resource Report”) that complies with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) will be filed by Rogue in compliance with NI 43-101. M.Plan is a joint venture between Dorfner ANZAPLAN GmbH (“ANZAPLAN”) and Micon International Limited formed specifically to provide consulting services in the specialty minerals sector. The Company expects the Resource Report to be completed and announced in late July (see press release dated June 18, 2018).

Potential new South Zone

An examination of surface outcrops exposed due to recent forestry activity on the property indicates that the quartz mineralization may extend further along the trend and the Company plans to map and sample these new zones as well as the already stripped South Zone during the summer/fall field season. This mineralization is on the Company’s current claims and would be included in the existing operations permit for the Project.

Hauling Permit with the local township

Rogue is also pleased to announce it has signed an agreement with The Corporation of the Township of Sables-Spanish Rivers, a Municipal Corporation under the laws of the Province of Ontario, for truck hauling. The Township has adjusted an existing load restriction in order to facilitate the Snow White hauling process. The agreement outlines the covenants of the hauling of legally licensed loads from August 1, 2018 to November 30, 2018. The Company will be required to re-apply for a hauling permit in successive years.

“I’m pleased with these initial results, as they confirm our view on Snow White- that it could be a Direct-Ship project with minimal capex to sell to the commodity market and good potential into the specialized markets. We drilled more metres than planned, and the full analytics delayed us a month, but this was the right work to do- methodically de-risking the Project and moving towards a Resource and a potential Advancement Decision. The potential new South Zone is also exciting for us and we appreciate the continued cooperation of the local township, they remain supportive as we continue with our work on Snow White”, said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue Resources.
