    HALIFAX, June 23 /CNW/ - Royal Roads Corp. (RRO - TSX-V) ("Royal Roads")
announced today that exceptionally marshy ground conditions on planned drill
sites has led to a delay in the previously announced diamond drilling program
on its Clementine West polymetallic prospect located in the Buchans Camp,
Newfoundland. Due to the current unfavourable field conditions, the Clementine
West drill program has been postponed until conditions improve or until the
winter freeze-up.
    Royal Roads however is pleased to announce that this has resulted in
moving forward the start date of an initial diamond drill program on
prioritized targets generated by Titan 24 geophysical surveys to July 6th. In
2007 and 2008, the Company completed deep-seeking Titan 24 DCIP and MT surveys
over the most productive portion of the Buchans mining camp. In conjunction
with other geological and geophysical data, the Company has selected an
initial set of drill targets defined by anomalous geophysical responses
located within the same package of felsic volcanic rocks that host all
previously mined ore in Buchans. The Buchans Camp represents one of the
highest grade base metal camps in Canadian history where past mining from five
orebodies produced 16.2 million tonnes(xx) of ore averaging 14.51% zinc, 1.33%
copper, 7.56% lead, 126 g/t silver and 1.37g/t gold. The Company looks forward
to testing some of these prioritized anomalies in pursuit of new high-grade

    (xx) Past production figures for the Buchans Mines were obtained from an
         article written by Kirkham, R.V., 1987: Introduction. In "Buchans
         Geology, Newfoundland", Geological Survey of Canada Paper 86-24,
         pages 1 to 6.
