Tas Property Update

Rich Rock Resources Inc. is pleased to report the preliminary results from a recently completed induced polarization geophysical survey on a portion of the Company's Tas Property. This program identified three large areas of anomalous chargeability that require follow-up exploration.

The Tas Property is located in North Central British Columbia in the northern half of the Quesnel Trough gold-copper belt. It is situated about 20 km northeast of the Mount Milligan copper-gold deposit, which is being advanced into production by Thompson Creek Metals Company Inc. The Tas Property is located 50 km north of the town of Fort St. James, with good access to nearby logging roads.

In October 2011, SJ Geophysics Ltd. completed 32 line-kms of induced polarization geophysics on the Tas copper-gold property. The program covered the Ridge Zone prospects and related mineralized zones farther south near the Tas pluton at the southern boundary of the property. The survey utilized 3D type surveying designed to take advantage of recent advances in 3D inversion techniques. Unlike conventional 2DIP, electrode arrays are not restricted to an inline geometry. In the standard 3DIP configuration, a receiver array is established along a survey line while current electrodes are located on two adjacent lines providing three dimensional views of chargeability and resistivity data.

The survey successfully outlined the existing showings of the Ridge Zone and defined three new large targets from near-surface to depths of 350m. The Ridge Zone returned elevated chargeability generally associated with the various sulfide-rich zones over an area approximately 750m x 250m. Three new, large targets were defined based on anomalously high chargeability: the Southeast Target covers an area 900m x 300m approximately 250m southeast of the Ridge Zone; a moderate depth target 800m x 200m was defined 200m north of the Ridge Zone; and an extremely large, deep target was identified over an area of 1800m x 400m overlapping in part the Ridge Zone and the Southeast Target. The size of these anomalies make them attractive targets for further exploration.

Lloyd Tattersall, President & CEO of Rich Rock Resources, remarks "We are very pleased to have identified three large high-quality induced polarization anomalies with chargeability highs indicating the possible presence of sulphides on our Tas Property. These geophysical 3DIP program results represent significant information for the future exploration and potential development of the Tas Property. Our systematic approach, combined with the historical work, has allowed us to continue advancing this property to its full potential. The thing that excites me is that the Tas mineralization has strong similarities to known porphyry copper-gold deposits such as Mount Milligan, Kwanika, and Duckling Creek."

The company will be updating the NI 43-101 Technical Report and is looking forward to advancing the Tas Property with the next phase of exploration.
