Richmond Minerals Inc. Announces Resumption of Exploration Work at the Ridley Lake Project, Timmins, Ontario

Richmond Minerals Inc. (TSX-V: RMD) (“Richmond” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that Phase V exploration work has resumed at the Company’s Ridley Lake Gold Project located in the heart of the Swayze Greenstone Belt of Northern Ontario, approximately 35 km east of Newmont Goldcorp’s Borden Gold Project. For Phase V Richmond is planning a VLF/Magnetic survey of the Cyril Knight showing located approximately 800 m north of the central Aguara Showing, followed by another round of diamond drilling.

The Cyril Knight Showing consists of an approximately 800 foot (244 m) excavated quartz vein estimated to be between 2 and 4 m wide, and 1 to 2 m deep. The excavation is poorly exposed having collected a considerable amount of surface debris. Very little historical information is available for the Cyril Knight showing other than it was discovered in the 1940’s and reportedly contained some visible gold mineralization. As far as the Company is aware, no diamond drilling has ever taken place at the Cyril Knight Showing.

Following completion of the geophysical surveying, follow-up diamond drilling is planned to test for extensions of gold intersections obtained during previous Phase I to Phase IV Aguara Zone diamond drilling work. Some hi-lights of previous drilling include 33 m of 1.26 g/t gold in hole RS-16-20, 136 m of 0.31 g/t gold in hole RS-17-30, and 14 m of 4.42 g/t, including 18.2 g/t gold over 3 m in hole RS-20-33 (all widths are reported as axial lengths).
