Rainy River Resources Provides Update on 2013 Planned Activities

RR.TSX

TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Rainy River Resources Ltd. ("Rainy River" or the "Company" (RR.TSX)) is pleased to provide an update on its planned activities for 2013.

Overview

The feasibility study and permitting process respecting the Rainy River Gold Project (the "RRGP") are progressing according to schedule. Exploration drilling re-commenced in mid-January with the intent to add to the RRGP's existing gold resource of 6.2 million and 2.3 million ounces in the Measured & Indicated and Inferred categories, respectively.

The Company is well funded to complete its 2013 activities, with approximately $102 million in cash and equivalents as of December 31, 2012.

Exploration

Rainy River plans approximately 75,000 metres of drilling in 2013, with a budget allocation of approximately $18 million. Four diamond drill rigs were mobilized at the RRGP in January. Three of the rigs are working to expand known mineralization as well as conduct infill drilling at the newly discovered Intrepid Zone.  With 51 drill holes completed to date, Intrepid now has a 335-metre strike length and measures 450 metres down dip. The Company aims to gather enough drill information to form the first mineral resource on Intrepid by the middle of this year.

The fourth rig is working at the BP Zone. Drill results from the Company's 2013 program will be released as they become available.

Feasibility Study

Work continues on the RRGP feasibility study, which is targeted for release during the first half of 2013. In August of 2012, the Company released an Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment, which outlined a robust project producing 308,000 ounces of gold and 478,000 ounces of silver annually over the first 10 years, with an IRR of 21% and NPV of $846 million, at $1,250 per ounce gold and $25 per ounce silver price assumptions. The feasibility study will incorporate the latest gold and silver resource estimate, which was released in October 2012.

About Rainy River
