News Release


Vancouver, B.C. – June 18, 2016 - RT Minerals Corp. (TSX.V: RTM) (the “Company”) announces the completion and receipt of all assay results from the surface trenching and reconnaissance program on the Company’s 100% owned Ballard Lake, Ontario property.

A total of 64 samples were taken from nine trenches on the property. Six samples from three of these trenches returned 1.23 g/t Au, 1.32 g/t Au, 1.51 g/t Au, 1.52 g/t Au, 2.38 g/t Au and 7.48 g/t Au. Five samples from these three trenches contained highly anomalous gold mineralization ranging from 100 ppb to 400 ppb. The remaining 53 samples from all three trenches returned values ranging between no significant gold to anomalous gold values.

Higher grade gold mineralization appears related to local quartz veins within chlorite schist unit(s) and is associated with pyrite and galena. Mineralization is also present with or without sulphides visible and is found to extend into local granites and felsic dykes.

The six trenches that contained gold bearing samples were from chip samples of 0.23 to one metre widths per sample taken contiguously across the trench. These samples ranged from 100 ppb to 7.48 g/t Au. The higher grade sample was taken from a quartz vein containing 3 to 6% pyrite.

These trenches are situated within and appear to align within a north western to south eastern trending corridor approximately 75 metres wide and having a strike length of approximately 1,100 metres.

The Company will now follow up the higher grade results outlined in the most prospective trenches with up to 5 drill holes consisting of 100 to 200 metre core length per hole. Drilling is expected to commence in the next two weeks.


The above trench samples are fire assay results completed by Swastika Laboratories of Kirkland Lake, Ontario.

Forward-looking Statements

Certain statements in this press release relating to the Company’s exploration activities, project expenditures and business plans are approximate and are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of securities legislation. The Company does not intend, and does not assume any obligation, to update these forward-looking statements. These forward looking statements represent management’s best judgment based on current facts and assumptions that management considers reasonable, including that operating and capital plans will not be disrupted by issues such as adverse market conditions, mechanical failure, unavailability of parts, labor disturbances, interruption in transportation or utilities, or adverse weather conditions, that there are no material unanticipated variations in budgeted costs, that contractors will complete projects according to schedule, and that actual mineralization on properties may not achieve any category of resource(s). The Company makes no representation that reasonable business people in possession of the same information would reach the same conclusions. Forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward- looking statements. In particular, fluctuations in the price of gold, equity markets or in currency markets could prevent the Company from achieving its targets. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. There is no guarantee that drill results reported in this news release or future releases will lead to the identification of a deposit that can be mined economically, and further work is required to identify resources and reserves. We seek safe harbour.
