CORRECTION: Red Pine Exploration Drills 13.08 g/t Gold Over 2.63 Metres

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 20, 2017) - In the news release, "Red Pine Exploration Drills 13.08 g/t Gold Over 2.63 Metres," issued on Wednesday, September 20, by Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPX), we are advised by the company that "over XX" should read "over 22,000" in the third paragraph under the "Wawa Gold Project Summary" heading. Complete corrected text follows.

Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPX) ("Red Pine" or the "Company") announces partial results for three drill holes in the Minto Mine area that were completed as part of the on-going 20,000 metre ("m") drilling program at its Wawa Gold Project.

Drilling Highlights (see Table 1 and Figures 1, 2 and 3 below):

Quentin Yarie, President and Chief Executive Officer of Red Pine stated, "We are quite excited by the intersection of a near-surface high-grade quartz vein above and perpendicular to the Minto Mine South Zone. This new discovery, called Minto E, further emphasises the potential of the zone and adds another gold target to what is already a highly promising area. Drilling in the Mine South Zone continues to be successful and is demonstrating that thickening zones of gold-mineralization can occur within the structure."

*Assay results reported over intersection length. In the Minto Mine South Zone for SD-17-105, the intersection length is estimated to be represent ? 70% true width. As it represents a discovery, no true width estimation is available for the discovered Minto E Gold Zone in SD-17-94, 99 and SD-17-105. Additional drilling is required to estimate the true width and continuity of the mineralized structure.

Overview of drilling results in the MMSZ and the Minto E

Holes SD-17-94 and SD-17-99 (Final assays pending) were drilled to test the down-dip extension of the MMSZ and both holes successfully intersected the structure. Near surface, SD-17-94 and SD-17-99 intersected a high-grade quartz vein/structure that represents the down-dip extension of the surface exposure of the Minto E structure.

SD-17-105 successfully intersected the southern extension of the MMSZ and results indicate a thickening of the structure in the area. In the hanging wall of the MMSZ, SD-17-105 also intersected a gold-bearing shear that could be the western extension of the Minto E shear zone. 

Results are pending for 20 boreholes in the MMSZ. The zone remains open at depth and along strike (>1km) to the south. Fifteen (15) additional drill holes are currently planned to further define its strike length and down-dip extension and to further define the Minto E Zone.

Wawa Gold Project Summary

The Wawa Gold property package consists of over 5,500 hectares and hosts several former mines with a combined historic production of 120,000 ounces ("oz") gold1. Currently, the largest gold deposit on the property is the Surluga Deposit, which hosts a NI 43-101 Inferred Resource of 1,088,000 oz gold at an average grade of 1.71 g/t using a 0.5 g/t cut-off contained within 19.82 million tonnes2.

Exploration work by Red Pine during the past 18 months has involved the sampling of 42,000 metres of historic core that was never sampled by previous operators of the project (initiated in February 2016) and aggressive drilling campaigns.

To date, the Company completed over 22,000 metres of drilling and made four discoveries along the extension of the Surluga Deposit: the Surluga North Zone; the Hornblende-William Zone; The Minto Mine South Zone; and the Grace-Darwin Zone. All these mineralized zones are interpreted to form a coherent structural system, the Wawa Gold Corridor, and are anticipated to have a positive impact on the property's gold inventory.

Red Pine's on-going 20,000-metre drill program is focussed on three of the four key discoveries with two drills operating non-stop on the property. The first drill is currently targeting the Surluga North discovery, where Red Pine's hole SD-16-45 intersected 14.66 g/t gold over 15.23 metres (the Surluga North high-grade zone) while the second drill is targeting the Minto Mine South Zone discovery.

The Company is well positioned to fund its share of the Wawa Gold exploration program. As such, the sampling and drill programs are expected to continue throughout 2017.

On-site Quality Assurance/Quality Control ("QA/QC") Measures

Drill core 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.
