Mining permit issued for small scale mining operations on Red Metal's Farellon copper-gold project

THUNDER BAY, ON and VALLENAR, Chile, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - Red Metal Resources Ltd. (OTCQB: RMES), a mineral exploration company with copper-gold assets in Chile, is pleased to announce that Minera Farellon, an affiliated company, has received provisional mining permits on the Farellon copper-gold project for up to 500 tonnes per month. Minera Farellon will be transporting and selling the ore to ENAMI, the national mining company's local processing facility in Vallenar, located 75 kilometres south of the property.

Minera Farellon plans to focus mining activities in the north part of a 1.6 kilometre long zone drilled in 1996, 2009 and 2011.  The initial mining target is an area intercepted in drillhole FAR-11-001 with eight metres of 3.95% Cu total including soluble 1.32% Cu with 0.52g/t Au.

Minera Farellon will be taking an initial 500 tonnes per month to ENAMI and paying Red Metal Resources a royalty on all payments received from ENAMI.  Red Metal will direct sampling procedures to ensure we are maximizing the information recovery from the mining operations and we will get access to all results of the mining.  If results are positive, Red Metal will begin the process of increasing permitting to 2,500 tonnes per month and Minera Farellon will then be contracted to complete mining activities for Red Metal Resources.

The Farellon property consists of seven mining and exploration concessions totaling 1,053 hectares in the Carrizal Alto mining district located approximately 75 kilometers northwest of the city of Vallenar, 150 kilometers south of Copiapo and 20 kilometers west of the Pan American Highway.  The property is easily accessible year round by dirt roads that crisscross the property and is located close to power, water and a major urban centre, Copiapo, with a readily available mining workforce

Caitlin Jeffs, P.Geo., President & CEO of Red Metal stated, " we are excited to be taking this first step in the process of proving what we believe will be a larger scale mining operation."

Caitlin Jeffs, P. Geo., President & CEO of Red Metal, the project's Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
