Red Pine Exploration Announces Staking of Additional Claims and Proposed Work Program for Québec Silica Property

Toronto, OntarioDecember 16, 2014 - Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: RPX) (“Red Pine” or the “Company”) announces that it has staked an additional 32 claims totaling 1,872 hectares adjacent to the Kipawa Silica Property (the "Kipawa Property") located approximately 15 kilometers east of Temiscaming, Québec. Based on the Company’s due diligence and ongoing research, it was determined that the quartzite unit extends beyond the boundaries of the original Kipawa land acquisition and the new claims cover these extensions.

The Company will proceed with an exploration program on the Kipawa property that includes:

  • Ground geophysical survey to map the shape and extents of the quartzite unit
  • Systematic surface sampling program over the entire quartzite unit
  • Geochemical and processing analysis of the samples to assess the quality of the quartzite

The geophysical work will consist of a ground magnetics survey to map the geology and lithology over the claim blocks. Since this work is more easily completed once the ground has frozen, we anticipate that the work program will begin early January 2015.

Kipawa Silica Project

The Kipawa Property consists of 68 claims totaling 4,012 hectares in the Gendreau, Campeau and Reclus townships of Québec. The total land package in the area now consists of 98 claims totaling 5,884 hectares. The quartzite unit is part of the Kipawa Formation and covers an area over the claim blocks of approximately 1.9 square kilometres. The quartzite unit within the Kipawa Property has the potential to contain high silica content with minimal impurities, typically less than 1%. This purity of silica is considered a premium product as it can be used in the production of such items as semi-conductors, LCD displays and Silicone-Anode Lithium Batteries
