News Release

Wednesday, January 14, 2009: RT Minerals Corp. announces Godbout Uranium Property Results

RT Minerals Corp. (“RTM” / the “Company”) announces the following results from work completed throughout November to December 2008 at its 100% owned Godbout Uranium Property, Quebec.

The Godbout uranium prospect consists of 62 claims located about 60km east of Baie Comeau, Quebec. The current program consisted of ground reconnaissance and sampling in order to confirm the 41 airborne anomalies and targets detailed in the 2007 and 2008 airborne radiometric, magnetic and related surveys undertaken by RTM.

The current ground reconnaissance program commenced in mid-September 2008 and the objective of this current phase of work was to ground check about 14 initial targets and to establish drill targets. The ground work has covered most of the initial 14 of the overall 41 airborne targets with one target area yielding significant spectrometer readings ranging from 1600 to 6000 cps. The surface sampling conducted in this area has returned the following Uranium (U3O8) values:

Sample # Target # and description Assay - Uranium in ppm
588601 1 - white pegmatite, quartz, feldspath porphyry 42.6
588602 1 - white pegmatite, quartz, feldspath porphyry 73.2
588603 2 - white pegmatite, quartz, biotite, amphibolites 623.0
588604 2 - pink pegmatite 173.0
588605 Between 1 and 2 , pegmatite 139.5
588606 3 - white pegmatite, quartz 330.0
588607 3 - white pegmatite, quartz 259.0

This sampling was located on the northeastern portion of the property. According to some outcrops observed, this mineralization may be associated along the same NE-SW geological trend.

Further surface sampling is recommended on the above target areas as well as on several other surface targets that yielded elevated spectrometer readings similar to those encountered above. A final field report on the above work and further recommended program is expected to be completed by March, 2009.

The above field program was carried out under the supervision of Mr. Eric Hurtubise, P.Geo. (#912 OGQ) of the Corporation de Promotion du Development Mineral de la Cote-Nord (Quebec).

Assaying was carried out by ALS Chemex using assay techniques and protocols under ICP-MS multi-element analysis (ME-MS41).

The Qualified Person for the Godbout property is Mr. Etienne Forbes, P.Geo., of Baie Comeau, Quebec, and he has reviewed the contents of this release.

Finally, the Company has acquired an option on the 27 claim Durand Uranium Property located about 65km west of Baie Comeau, Quebec. A complete summary and results of a due diligence program carried out by the Company in early December, 2008 on this prospect will be available in the next several days.

RTM may acquire up to a 100% interest in the Durand property by RTM paying $150,000 in cash, issuing 700,000 common shares of the Company and incurring $575,000 in exploration on the property over the next 48 months. A minimum payment of $10,000 cash and issuance 100,000 shares is payable to the vendor upon the execution of the option agreement.
