Ruby Red Resources - Results from renewed drilling at Zeus


    CALGARY, Feb. 26 /CNW/ - Ruby Red Resources Inc. ("Ruby Red") announces
that the most recent drilling at its 100% owned Zeus Property tested a gold
target 1600 metres south-southwest of DDH Z-07-1 (drilled earlier in 2007)
which intersected 57 metres of 0.63% copper along with anomalous silver
(3.78 grams/tonnes over 57 metres), bismuth (up to 130 ppm over 10 metres) and
cobalt (up to 304 ppm over 46 metres). The anomalous copper occurs within a
120 metre intercept of porous, vuggy, hydrothermal pyrite quartz-albite
breccia. Porphyritic syenite dikes flank the quartz breccia and support a
porphyry model. Anomalous gold mineralization exists at the margins of the
quartz-albite breccia adjacent to the syenite dykes. The gold and copper (+Ag,
Bi and Co) mineralization are part of a large argillic, sericitic and silicic
alteration zone that is in part controlled by district-scale structures that
trend east-west and north-northeast.
    Two drill holes were targeted on a gold-bearing north-northeast striking
quartz breccia zone 1600 metres south-southwest of DDH Z-071 and on a
structure that links the two areas. Surface exposures are minimal and the
drilling was in part intended to establish the character of the
gold-mineralized zone.
    Both holes were drilled at the same azimuth, easterly to cross the
westerly dipping structure and at dips of -45 and -80 degrees. Both holes
encountered a wide 14 to 16 metre zone of quartz veining and a complex
hydrothermal pyretic quartz-dolomite breccia. The quartz vein zone carries
minor galena and anomalous gold with 2 grams/tonne gold over a 2 metre wide
interval (including 3.68 grams/tonne gold over 80 cm). The steeper drill hole
encountered a 4 metre wide zone of argillic-altered sediments within the
quartz vein zone; this interval is not present in the upper hole and along
with increasing molybdenum vales with depth, suggests that stronger porphyry
style mineralization exists at depth. Both holes terminated within the
quartz-dolomite breccia.
    Permitting is underway to enable continued drill testing of both the
copper and gold intercepts on the Zeus Property. A deeper drill hole is
planned to step out from the Z-07-1 intercept of 57 metres of 0.63% copper;
this hole will test the system along the east-west oriented controlling
structure below an extensive intense argillic-altered zone where a coincident
copper-in-soil anomaly exists at surface. Both the intense argillic-altered
zone and the large quartz-albite-pyrite breccia (with Cu, Bi and Co) are
interpreted to be high elevation features of a buried porphyry system.
    The Zeus is one of a suite of porphyry targets within the Cranbrook area
of southeast British Columbia that Ruby Red is continuing to evaluate. Four
porphyry targets (Zeus, Gar, Lov and Loose Leg) are at an early drill-ready
stage with much of the preliminary surface evaluation work completed. Three
other porphyry targets (Do Drop, Zinger and Tiger) are at earlier stages of

    The 2007 program was carried out under the supervision of Peter Klewchuk,
P. Geo., hereby identified at the "Qualified Person" as under N.I. 43-101 and
drilling services were performed by F. B. Drilling of Cranbrook, B.C.

    Ruby Red was formed to participate in the acquisition, exploration and
development of mineral claims in the Fort Steele Mining Division of British
Columbia for the purpose of exploring for precious and base metals. Ruby Red
holds 100% working interests in 144 mineral claims (approximately
44,000 hectares), all located within 80 kilometres of Cranbrook, B.C. in the
Purcell and Rocky Mountains.
