Red Pine Exploration Executes Assumption Agreement for the Surluga Gold Deposit

Toronto, Ontario - December 11, 2014 - Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: RPX) ("Red Pine" or the "Company") announces that it has entered into an assignment and assumption agreement with Augustine Ventures Inc. (CSE: WAW) ("Augustine") and Citabar Limited Partnership ("Citabar") effective December 11, 2014 (the "Assumption Agreement") pursuant to which the parties have agreed to amend the Surluga Property Option Agreement ("Option Agreement"). dated April 16, 2009, as amended, between Augustine and Citabar to permit Red Pine to earn up to a 45% interest in the Wawa Gold Project property (the "Wawa Gold Project"), which is located approximately 2 kilometers southeast of the Town of Wawa in Northern Ontario.

The property consists of four contiguous mining claim groups totaling 5,338 hectares. The Wawa Gold Project features an inferred gold resource of 1.1 million ounces at 1.5 grams per tonne (see Table 1) contained within 22.4 million tonnes with known depth extension to 600 meters (the "Mineral Resource").

The Mineral Resource is disclosed in a technical report prepared on behalf of Augustine entitled "Amended Technical Review and Mineral Resource Estimate for the Jubilee-Surluga Property, near Wawa, Ontario, Canada for Augustine Ventures Inc." dated October 12, 2012 (the "Technical Report"). The Technical Report was prepared by Clifford J. Duke, P. Eng., Senior Associate Geological Engineer of Watts, Griffis and McOuat, Consulting Geologists and Engineers, and is available on www.SEDAR.com under Augustine's profile. The Mineral Resource has been classified by Watts, Griffis and McOuat as an "inferred resource" (within the meaning of such term in NI 43-101) with an effective date of the estimate as of October 15, 2012. The key assumptions, parameters, and methods used to estimate the Mineral Resource are set out in the Technical Report, as are any known legal, political, environmental or other risks that could materially affect the potential development of the Mineral Resource. The property has a history of past production from the known vein deposits as well as seven other areas on the property and a large number of untested but documented gold occurrences. To the best of Red Pine's knowledge, information and belief, there is no new material scientific or technical information that would make the disclosure of the Mineral Resource as currently set out in the Technical Report inaccurate or misleading.

Highlights of Assumption Agreement Terms

  1. Red Pine is required to incur $2.1 million in eligible exploration expenditures by June 30, 2015 in order to earn a 30% interest in the Wawa Gold Project, upon which Augustine and Citabar would then hold 30% and 40% respectively;
  2. Red Pine has the right to earn one-half of an additional 15% interest ( or 7.5%) in the Wawa Gold Project by incurring a further $2.0 million in eligible exploration expenditures by June 30, 2016, so long as a total of $4.0 million is spent in the aggregate by Red Pine and Augustine, which could be increased up to the entire 15% interest if all of such additional $4.0 million is incurred by Red Pine;
  3. Red Pine also has the right to earn a pro rata interest in Augustine's existing interests in all mineral properties acquired by Augustine, including any future acquisitions, within an area of influence defined as a 5 kilometer radius from the perimeter of the Wawa Gold Project by satisfying certain criteria;
  4. Upon earning a 30% interest in the Wawa Gold Project, Red Pine will be the Manager under the terms of the joint venture agreement, which constitutes part of the Option Agreement, as amended by the Assumption Agreement;

The foregoing summary of the Assumption Agreement is qualified in its entirety by the full text of the agreement which will be available on www.SEDAR.com under Red Pine's profile.

Quentin Yarie, President and COO of Red Pine, states: "The Wawa Gold Project already contains a significant inferred gold resource and we believe there is potential to expand that resource. Limited exploration has been done on the higher grade vein deposits present on the property and the new interpretation of the geology may lead to both an expanded and new gold discovery. We believe that entering into this agreement with Augustine and Citabar to become part of and further develop the Wawa Gold Project represents an exciting new opportunity for our shareholders."

Wawa Gold Project Highlights

  • Located in Wawa, Ontario, an area of significant historical and current gold exploration (since 1890's) and production (1902 to 1991);
  • 172 patented and leased and unpatented mining claims within the McMurray Township, a total of 2,426;
  • 182 claim units on crown land, a total of 2,912 hectares;
  • Property hosted eight past producing mines with historic production of over 120,000 ounces;
  • Inferred resource of 1,072,335 ounces at 1.49 grams per tonne gold contained in 22,355 tonnes, open along strike and at depth;
  • Reinterpretation of property geology could lead to improvement in both grade and size of the gold resource;
  • Proximity to established regional infrastructure (roads, rail, regional airport, high voltage power lines, natural gas, water).
