TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 21, 2015) - Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPX) ("Red Pine" or the "Company") announces that it has closed the third tranche of its non-brokered financing (the "Financing"), pursuant to which it has received aggregate gross proceeds of $275,000. In addition, the closing of the Financing has been extended until September 21, 2015. Total gross proceeds received to date from the Financing amount to $640,789.

The proceeds from the financing will be used to further the exploration work on the Wawa Gold Project. The Company's exploration objective is to further expand the current inferred resource on the property by defining the gold mineralization both in the hanging wall and footwall of Surluga Deposit and by connecting the Surluga Deposit with the other historical mines on the property.

Quentin Yarie, Red Pine's President and CEO, stated: "We are pleased to have the continued support of investors. Despite the challenging market conditions, we've been able to raise over $600,000 to date with our current financing. The Wawa Gold Project has the potential to become a significant gold camp and investors are noticing."

Pursuant to the Financing, the Company issued 5,500,000 flow-through units ("FT Units"). Each FT Unit, priced at $0.05 per FT Unit, contains one common share of the Company on a "flow-through" basis, within the meaning of the Income Tax Act (Canada), and one half of one non-flow through common share purchase warrant. Each full warrant (the "Warrants") carries an exercise price of $0.10 per share and an expiry date of three years from the date of issue.

In connection with the closing of the third tranche of the Financing, Red Pine paid fees in the form of cash compensation of $27,500 and issued 330,000 non-transferable compensation options, with each such option entitling the holder to acquire one common share of Red Pine at a price of $0.05 per common share within three years from the date of issuance.
