About the Company

Rupert Resources is a Canadian based gold exploration company. Rupert's objective is to obtain accretive investment opportunities in near term producing assets through active searches for development projects while simultaneously evaluating the developmental potential of its two assets - the Surf Inlet property in British Columbia and the Gold Centre property in Ontario. Rupert holds a 100% interest in the Gold Centre property, which has the distinction of being one of the best-positioned exploration land packages within the entire Red Lake gold mining camp. The Gold Centre property is partially surrounded by and on trend with one of the world's richest gold mines, Goldcorp, now working within 600m of Rupert's northwestern boundary.

In 2004, Rupert commenced an 11,900m drill program on the Gold Centre property consisting of two main holes and several daughter holes. Although, at the 2008 conclusion of this program no significant gold was found in that small area in the South West portion of the property, strong geological features were encountered. On the heels of a recent $510,000 private placement, the new Summer 2013 exploration program has been completed. A geophysical program delineated three strong I.P. anomalies, with two located in the northwestern portion, and one in the eastern portion of the property. They have been recommended as diamond drill targets. See press release, November 14, 2013.

Michael Sutton, P.Geo., a Director of Rupert Resources Ltd., and a Qualified Person ("QP"), has reviewed and approved the technical content of this news release.
