Rugby Mining Limited: Drilling Update Great Northern Gold Project, Pilbara, Australia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/28/14 -- Rugby Mining Limited ("Rugby" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: RUG) is pleased to announce preliminary high grade gold results from the recently completed diamond drilling program at the Great Northern Gold Project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The initial drilling program was conducted at the early stage Berghaus prospect, located approximately 9 kilometres to the northwest of Wingina. (Figure 1). Eight shallow holes for a total of 640 metres ("m") were drilled along 750 m of strike to target high grade gold mineralization associated with a series of northeast-trending structures in meta-sedimentary rocks. Two of the eight holes intersected visible gold mineralization. Preliminary gold assays have been received for all the drill holes and significant drill results include:


--  RDD001 0.5m @ 11.9 g/t gold from 47.2m

--  RDD002 1.0m @ 17.4 g/t gold from 15.5m

--  RDD003 3.4m @ 6.25 g/t gold from 20.1m

--  RDD006 1.4m @ 16.1 g/t gold from 63.2m

--  RDD008 0.5m @ 10.7 g/t gold from 43.0m

Rugby's CEO, Paul Joyce stated "We are encouraged by our initial program at Berghaus. We have both delineated high grade mineralization and are close to meeting the minimum expenditure requirement for the project by drilling holes previously permitted by our joint venture partner. Further drilling at Berghaus will now follow drilling at our top priority target, Wingina. Our objective at Wingina, is to test for potential depth extensions to the very high grade footwall gold zone (Figure 3). We believe that the host rocks are favourable for extensions of the high grade to significant depths. A 2,000 m drilling program is expected to commence early Q4, subject to permitting and drill rig availability.

Previous operators established a historical mineral resource at Wingina however, the resource was not completed in compliance with National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") consequently the Company is not reporting any resource estimates prior to further evaluation. We plan to work with independent consultants to upgrade the historical mineral resource at Wingina to NI 43-101 requirements. Under our JV agreement the Company has an option to purchase 80% of the historical resource by 2018."

Quality Control and Assurance

Blanks and certified standards were inserted into the sample stream as part of Rugby's quality assurance and control program, which complies with NI 43-101 requirements. Core samples were cut in half-lengths using a diamond saw, with one half retained in secure storage for logging, and the other half sent to ALS Laboratory Services lab in Perth, Western Australia for mineral analyses. All samples were prepared using ALS' PREP-31B method (drying, crushing, and pulverizing), and assaying for gold by ALS' Au-AA26 technique in which a 50g charge was split from each sample for fire assay with an AAS finish. Check-assaying is currently underway at Intertek-Genalysis Laboratory Services, Perth. Both ALS and Intertek are independent and ISO-9001:2000 certified laboratories with no association to Rugby.

Update: Cobrasco Project, Colombia

Water permits for the proposed drilling program were recently granted. The permits are valid for a five year period. The forestry extraction permit, the final step in the drill permitting process, is currently being processed by the Ministry of Environment with approval expected before year end.

Francisco Montes, Rugby's Chief Geologist and a "qualified person" ("QP") within the definition of that term in National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects, has verified the technical information that forms the basis for this news release

About Rugby

Rugby is an emerging mineral resource company focussed on a portfolio of projects having considerable potential for significant mineral discoveries. Rugby benefits from the experience of its directors and management, a team that has either been directly responsible for world-class mineral discoveries or have been part of the management teams responsible for such discoveries.

Cobrasco and Comita Projects, Colombia: Rugby owns 100% of the Cobrasco project, subject to a 1% NSR and has an option to earn up to 60% of the adjacent Comita project in western Colombia. Both projects host undrilled large scale porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold targets which were recognised during a joint German-Colombian government sponsored exploration program over 30 years ago. No systematic exploration or drilling has been conducted since that time. Rugby currently awaits final permitting approval for a proposed drilling program at Cobrasco. Discussions have commenced with local drilling companies for a drilling campaign in late in 2014.

Mabuhay Project, Philippines: The Company holds an option to acquire up to 80% of the Mabuhay project in Surigao Province. The Company considers the project to have excellent potential for the discovery of both epithermal gold deposits and gold-copper porphyry systems. An application for an Exploration Permit ("EP") is currently awaiting approval. Unfortunately, in common with almost all other mining permits in the Philippines, the delay has been considerable. To minimise expenditures, the project will remain under care and maintenance until the EP is granted.
