TORONTO, ON – Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX-V: RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s Snow White quartz project, located near Massey, Ontario, Canada (“Snow White” or the “Project”). Rogue is continuing its negotiations with logistics contractors and quartz buyers with a view to making an advancement decision in respect of development of the Project (the “Advancement Decision”).
Rogue has selected locally-based BA Ryan Trucking and Logging (“Ryan”) as its primary road trucker and Carmeuse’s Northern Operations (located east of Blind River, Ontario) as the departure dock for sea transport of the quartz. In the event of a positive Advancement Decision by Rogue, Ryan will be responsible for transport of the quartz to the Carmeuse dock and, at their dock, Carmeuse will receive, stockpile and subsequently load the vessels for transport.
“This is another step forward for Rogue as we continue to pull together the pieces of the puzzle for Snow White”, said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue Resources. “We have spent significant time with both contractors and we appreciate their shared focus on safety, responsibility and efficiency.”
Rogue is also pleased to report that the Company has received the Authorization to Commence Harvesting Operations from the MNRF for the project area and that the previously announced 1,800m diamond drill program (“Drill Program”) is now almost half complete. Following completion of the Drill Program, Rogue expects to prepare and file a technical report on the Snow White mineral resources (the “Report”) that complies with the requirements of National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”).
