Rockridge Intersects 1.95% Cu, 0.11 g/t Au, 7.41 g/t Ag, 0.53% Zn and 0.02% Co (2.34% CuEq) over 14.02m at Knife Lake Copper Project, Saskatchewan

Vancouver, BC – June 18th, 2021 – Rockridge Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ROCK) (OTCQB: RRRLF) (Frankfurt: RR0) (“Rockridge” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce initial results from its recently completed diamond drilling program at its Knife Lake Copper Project located in Saskatchewan, Canada (the “Knife Lake Project” or “Property”). The Company drilled a total of 2,043 metres in twelve drill holes and has received assays and completed interpretation for the first nine holes (1740.0m). Results for the remaining three holes will be released once results have been compiled and interpretation is complete. The Knife Lake Project, consisting of 81 claims totaling 55,471 hectares (137,069 acres), is an advanced-stage copper, silver, zinc and cobalt exploration property in Saskatchewan host to the Knife Lake Deposit. 

The drill program at the Gilbert North and South target areas was designed to evaluate conductivity and magnetic anomalies identified during the 2021 airborne VTEM Plus survey and corresponding surficial geochemical anomalies. Previous surficial work programs have indicated that the stratigraphic position of the targeted anomalies correlates with the Knife Lake Deposit to the east. Additional drilling at the Knife Lake Deposit was designed to infill resource drilling. 

Rockridge’s CEO, Jonathan Wiesblatt, commented: “Although the Knife Lake Deposit was discovered many years ago the exploration in and around the maiden resource has been negligible until just recently. The airborne VTEM Plus survey that was conducted in 2021 expanded the regional target areas beyond the Knife Lake deposit increasing the probabilities of making new and potentially meaningful discoveries. The work at Gilbert Lake has been the first drilling program beyond the Knife Lake Deposit in decades and the results thus far have been very encouraging. We believe that the discovery potential at the broader 15km Gilbert trend remains high and warrants follow up work in the near term which is currently being planned.  We continue to learn more about the Knife Lake Deposit and are compelled by its high grade and near-surface composition. The progress we have made at Knife Lake is excellent and lines up with our thesis that the known deposit is a remobilized portion of a larger VMS system.” 

Highlights 

  • 2021 drill program expanded to 2,043.0 metres in twelve drill holes 
  • Highlight drill intercepts at the Gilbert South target area include pyrrhotite-pyrite dominant VMS-style mineralization hosted at the same stratigraphic horizon as the Knife Lake Deposit 
  • Drilling focused on discovering VMS style copper deposits along newly defined conductors as well as at the Knife Lake VMS deposit 
  • Infill drilling at the Knife Lake deposit (follow up to the 2019 drill program) returned 1.95% Cu, 0.11 g/t Au, 7.41 g/t Ag, 0.53% Zn and 0.02% Co (2.34% CuEq) over 14.02m beginning at 24.62m in hole KF21021 
  • Results for the remaining three holes will be released once results have been compiled and interpretation is complete 
  • Deposit is thought to be a remobilized portion of a “primary” VMS deposit; most of the historical work has consisted of shallow drilling at the deposit area with little regional work carried out and limited deeper drilling below the deposit
  • Over 300 holes provided data for first NI 43-101 resource estimate of the shallow Knife Lake deposit 
  • Knife Lake NI 43-101 resource estimate from 2019  provides excellent anchor for Project and includes indicated resources of 3.8 MT at 1.02% CuEq. (3.8 MT at 0.83% Cu, 3.7 g/t Ag, 0.097 g/t Au, 82 ppm Co,1740.7 ppm Zn) as well as inferred resources of 7.9 MT at 0.67% Cu Eq (7.9 MT at 0.53% Cu, 2.4 g/t Ag, 0.084 g/t Au, 53.1 ppm Co, 1454.9 ppm Zn) 
  • There is strong discovery potential in and around the deposit as well as at regional targets on the Property; modern exploration techniques and methods are being utilized with a goal of making new discoveries 
  • Planning is now underway for a summer 2021 exploration program to follow up on the results of this drill program
