TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 11, 2013) - Greencastle Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:VGN) ("Greencastle"), is pleased to report that, in return for granting an option extension to Rainbow Resources Inc. ("Rainbow"), Rainbow has agreed to include recently acquired patented claims totalling 35 hectares located within Greencastle's larger Jewel Ridge claim block in Nevada. The claims are along trend in the immediate vicinity of the Hamburg pit, where Rainbow geologists have outlined a minimum 500 metre-long altered zone characterized by old workings, strong oxide staining and heavily silicified rock. The patented claims cover the former-producing Croesus mine (gold, silver, lead and zinc) and were acquired late in 2012 by Rainbow for cash consideration of $75,000 and 500,000 Rainbow shares.

In return for assigning these claims and making a cash payment of $30,000 to Greencastle, Greencastle has agreed to grant an extension to Rainbow allowing more time to complete the next phase of work required to keep the Jewel Ridge option in good standing. See news March 29, 2012.

Commenting on the arrangement, Anthony Roodenburg, Greencastle CEO, stated: "Rainbow has completed some excellent work at Jewel Ridge despite challenging market conditions. We believe the inclusion of the Croesus claims adds significant value to the Jewel Ridge claim block. We now control virtually all of the prospective ground between Timberline's South Eureka deposit to the south and Barrick's producing Ruby Hill mine to the north."
