Rogue Selects Quarry Contractor and Forms Strategic Partnership with SCR Mining and Tunneling

TORONTO, March 08, Mar 08, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) --

-- Ed Seguin & Sons Trucking and Paving Ltd. ("Seguin") selected as Contract Quarry Operator for Snow White

-- Strategic Partnership formed with SCR Mining and Tunneling L.P. ("SCR") for collaboration on projects

-- Seguin and SCR will invest $225K into Rogue, to fund project identification and future advancement

-- Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests ("MNRF") work permit received to reseat temporary bridge to be followed by Diamond drill program to define Snow White Quartz zone

Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX-V:RRS) ("Rogue" or the "Company") is pleased to announce it has selected Seguin as the contract operator for the Company's Snow White Quartz Project ("Snow White" or the "Project"), located near Massey, Ontario, Canada, has formed a strategic partnership with SCR and both companies have agreed to subscribe for flow-through units of Rogue ("Units") pursuant to a private placement.

In the event of a positive Advancement Decision by Rogue in Q2, Seguin will be responsible for quarry operations including the loading and hauling of material from the quarry to the crushing and screening plant and the operations of the crushing and screening plant on site.

"We are excited by the selection of Ed Seguin & Sons as our quarry operator," said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue Resources. "We believe the combination of a great team, new equipment and a practical and pragmatic approach will benefit Snow White."

Under the Strategic Partnership, SCR and Rogue will jointly assess project opportunities identified by Rogue throughout North and South America.

In connection with the partnership agreement, Rogue has agreed to issue and sell 750,000 Units, to be split evenly between Seguin and SCR at a price of $0.30 per Unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $225,000 (the "Offering"). Each Unit will include one common share and one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant") entitling the holder thereof to purchase one common share at an exercise price of $0.45 until May 31, 2018. The Offering is subject to regulatory approval, including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV"). Closing of the Offering is expected to occur on or about March 20, 2018. The proceeds from the Offering will be used for Canadian Exploration Expenses, as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada).

"Partnering with SCR is another step in both the plan for Snow White but also, to grow Rogue," said Sean Samson. "We have known the Seguins for years, we work well together and have a similar approach in business, complimenting each other's skills and experience. Together we will continue the search for additional high quality opportunities through our shared, targeted focus and analysis. We are excited about this creative approach of actively partnering with an operator."

"SCR appreciates Rogue's commitment to a thorough due diligence process, reviewing projects quickly and identifying opportunities within the resource sector," states Claude Seguin, managing Partner and Co-Founder of SCR Mining and Tunneling. "The strategic partnership with Rogue will present new opportunities for SCR and we look forward to working with Rogue's management team on new projects."

Rogue is also pleased to report that the Company has received a work permit from the MNRF to reseat the temporary bridge on the Snow White site. The Company will be completing that reseating work as soon as possible and will have a drill contractor mobilizing to the site to begin diamond drilling on the project upon completion of that work.

The work completed on Snow White at this stage is preliminary in nature and the limited drill data and metallurgical analysis are too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized even as Mineral Resources. Rogue does not intend to complete a Pre-feasibility or Feasibility Study of Mineral Reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability before an Advancement decision to proceed into Production. This potential decision would be based on a Resource Report, the results of negotiated cost estimates, ongoing engineering and geochemical test work (including the work referred to in this Release), the recent metallurgical test work, historic successful furnace tests as well as the securing of supply contracts for the Snow White quartz/silica products. Among the risks associated with any Advancement decision to proceed into Production is the possibility that the zone will not be economically or technically viable and/or that development timetables, cost estimates and production forecasts may not be realized.
