Ruby Red Resources announces Robert Thompson to head 2009 field program on Kimberley Gold Trend


    CALGARY, June 3 /CNW/ - Ruby Red Resources Inc. ("Ruby Red" or the
"Company") is pleased to announce that Robert (Bob) Thompson, PhD, formerly of
the Geological Survey of Canada ("GSC"), will head the 2009 field program for
the Company in the Kimberley Gold Trend ("KAT"). Ruby Red anticipates spending
up to $1,000,000 this year to pursue gold and base metal targets in the KAT.
Ruby Red is a small company with a large land position (44,000 ha.) in
south-eastern British Columbia, Canada. Our mission: to define quality mineral
exploration opportunities that can be developed in a sustainable and
environmentally responsible manner and that can contribute to the economic and
social well-being of local communities.
    Dr. Thompson is a field geologist with more than 35 years experience. In
the course of managing major multi-parameter geological programs for the GSC,
he has mapped extensively in the Yukon, north-eastern British Columbia, the
Queen Charlotte Islands, south-central British Columbia and the Kootenays.
From each project came innovative ideas that underscored geological
understanding, new models, and resource potential. Most recently, he
spearheaded a massive mapping and compilation project in southern British
Columbia that is influencing the way we interpret Cordilleran evolution and is
opening new mineral exploration frontiers.
    Dr. Thompson is a graduate of Queen's University; BSc (hons) in 1968 and
a PhD, PEng in 1972. In 1998, The Canadian Society of Petroleum Geologists
awarded him the R.J.W. Douglas medal for outstanding contributions to the
understanding of sedimentary geology in Canada.
    The 2009 program will focus on the Company's Eddy, Spirit Dream, Zinger
and Zeus properties within the KAT trend exploiting the known gold
mineralization and developing drill targets on the properties. The Company
anticipates performing detailed geological mapping supported by soil
geochemistry and limited geophysical surveys to develop these targets. Diamond
drilling of the targets is anticipated this field season. Permitting for road
/ trail construction, trenching and diamond drilling is underway on all of the
Company's properties including the Lov, Gar and Robocop.
    Financing for the 2009 exploration program is being funded in part by the
previously announced private placement of 10,000,000 Units (each, a "Unit") of
the Company at $0.10 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share and one
non-transferable common share purchase warrant entitling the holder to acquire
one additional common share at a price of $0.15 per common share for a period
of 24 months from the date of issuance. The Company completed the first
tranche of this private placement on June 2, 2009. Ruby Red issued 1,595,000
Units at a price of $0.10 per Unit for gross proceeds of $159,500. In
connection with the first tranche of the financing, the Company paid finder's
fees totalling $2,400 and issued 24,000 finder's fee warrants which are
exercisable into 24,000 common shares of the Company at a price of $0.15 per
common share for a period of 24 months from the date of issuance. All of the
common shares and warrants issued under the financing are subject to a hold
period expiring on October 3, 2009. The Company anticipates additional
closing(s) on or before June 26, 2009.
