Rogue Corporate Update: 2017 Progress Recap and Presentation of 2018 Plan for Snow White - anticipated Development Decision in Q2

  • Silicon Ridge Project (Québec) 2017 progress - optimized PEA, Agreements with Contract Operators and Processors plus Supply Agent Agreements with Buyers.  The Project remains delayed in permitting.
  • Additional developments in 2017 - created Advisory Group, secured drill permits to explore for gold potential at Radio Hill and acquired Snow White, an Ontario project permitted for production
  • Snow White Project 2018 Plan - Resource and Development decision in Q2, Production potential in Q3
  • Additional in 2018 - navigate Silicon Ridge through permits, identify additional assets that fit Rogue’s criteria
  • A Corporate Update conference call will be held with investors on Wednesday, January 10th at 12:00 pm EST

TORONTO, Jan. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rogue Resources Inc. (TSX-V:RRS) (“Rogue” or the “Company”) is pleased to update investors regarding the Company’s progress in 2017 across its portfolio and to introduce the Company’s 2018 Plan.

“Last year was a very busy one for Rogue, as the Company continued to advance the Silicon Ridge Project until the permit delay in August.  In Q4, the Company acquired the Snow White Project in Ontario, which already has an aggregate permit for unlimited production and we will now advance Snow White to a Development decision in Q2," said Sean Samson, President and CEO of Rogue Resources. “Consistent with the last two years, Rogue has a clear Plan for the upcoming year which outlines our intended activities and allows investors to understand the path forward for their Company.”

The work completed on Snow White at this stage is preliminary in nature and the limited drill data and metallurgical analysis are too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized even as Mineral Resources.  Rogue does not intend to complete a Pre-feasibility or Feasibility Study of Mineral Reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability before a Development decision to proceed into Production.  This potential decision would be based on a Resource Report, the results of negotiated cost estimates, ongoing engineering and geochemical test work, the recent metallurgical test work, historic successful furnace tests as well as the securing of supply contracts for the Snow White quartz/silica products.  Among the risks associated with any Development decision to proceed into Production is the possibility that the zone will not be economically or technically viable and/or that development timetables, cost estimates and production forecasts may not be realized.

Highlights of Rogue’s 2017 Progress

On the Silicon Ridge Project in Québec:

  • Completed the Public Consultation process, including a Public Meeting held in St-Urbain (March)
  • Optimized PEA with 75% less Capex, Payback in less than One Year and an after-tax NPV(10%) of $23.8M (June)
  • Partnered with Lintech, a Contract Processor and Leading Distributor of Specialty Minerals (June)
  • Partnered with EJD, a local Contract Operator for initial work on the Project (July)
  • Informed by the MFFP that the initial permit will be delayed until at least Spring 2018 (August)
  • Completed surface trenching and mapping of the quartzite (August)
  • Finalized Agreement to become Canadian Quartz Supply Agent for two silicon metal companies (September)


  • Created an Advisory Group with deep mining, project and commercial knowledge (January)
  • Secured three-year exploration permits to drill prospective gold areas on the Radio Hill Project (November)
  • Finalized acquisition of the Snow White Project in Ontario, an asset that meets Rogue’s prioritization criteria and has an existing Silica/Quartz Pit-Quarry Aggregate Permit (December)

Other than the Permitting setback in August, the Company completed the 2017 Plan as initially presented last February.

Rogue’s 2018 Plan

Rogue is pleased to outline the major events anticipated for 2018, as the Company drives forward towards a Development decision on its Snow White Project in Ontario, awaits permitting feedback on the Silicon Ridge Project in Québec and continues to try and identify and secure additional assets which meet the Company’s prioritization criteria.
