The Annual Financial Report and Management's Discussion and Analysis are now available for review under the Company's profile on SEDAR ( and on the Company's website (

Preliminary Economic Assessment & Marketing Samples

The Company remains focused on the Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA"), scheduled for completion by Met-Chem Canada ("Met-Chem"), a division of DRA Americas, the highlights of which are targeted for release in September. Rogue is working closely with Met-Chem, and the report is on track and on schedule. The Company also continues to actively engage in discussions with potential buyers of material from Silicon Ridge and some have evolved to the stage of lab review of the material. To date, six product samples have been sent for analysis to customer labs in Canada, the USA and Europe.

Share Consolidation

Subject to regulatory approval, the share capital of the Company will be consolidated on the basis of one (1) new common share for every existing ten (10) common shares. Where the exchange results in a fractional share, the number of common shares will be rounded to the nearest whole common share.

Board Change

It is with regret that the Company received John de Jong's resignation as a Director of Rogue this week, for personal reasons.

"I want to thank John for his contribution to Rogue over the past eight years. In addition, I am pleased with the Company's current financial position and also our progress in advancing Silicon Ridge. There is never a great time for a share rollback but I believe this sets us up better for funding our advancement decision later this year," said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue Resources.
