Idaho Champion Gold Mines Canada Inc. (CSE:ITKO)(OTCQB:GLDRF)(FSE:1QB1) ("Idaho Champion" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Robert Kell has been appointed Chief Geologist of the Company. Among his other duties, he will be directing exploration at the Company's 100% controlled Champagne Gold Project ("Champagne") in Idaho

Mr. Robert Kell has over 41 years of experience as a geologist, focused in North and South America, in exploration for base and precious metals deposits. Mr. Kell has worked in many capacities, ranging from field geologist to management roles in which he directed both large drilling programs and generative exploration programs. For 17 years, Robert worked as a senior geologist and vice president of exploration for South American Mining and Exploration Corp. (SAMEX Mining). His experience includes other companies such as Arbor-Wealth, BHP Minerals, Homestake Exploration, Newmont Mining, and Anaconda Minerals Company.

Mr. Kell is a practical and field-oriented geologist who is intimately knowledgeable about the geology of Idaho. He is considered to be an expert on epithermal gold and silver deposits.

Robert will oversee exploration programs at both Baner and Champagne with a specific focus on Champagne.

"Upon commencement of our 2020 Champagne exploration program, Robert joined the exploration team at Champagne as a consulting geologist. We quickly realized that Robert's leadership of the team and contributions to the geological model at Champagne warranted a permanent role. We welcome Robert to the team as we continue to uncover what Champagne has to offer," stated President and CEO, Jonathan Buick.

The new Chief Geologist, Robert Kell, commented: "During the Company's maiden exploration season at Champagne, it became clear from the drill bit and through the IP survey results that Champagne was hiding what I believe is a major deposit. The massive IP anomaly to the west of the historic past producing open pits is the ‘heart' of the mineralizing system and is perfectly intact beneath the detachment fault. It is a pleasure to be able to work with the Champion team to test these exciting targets. I am looking forward to the 2021 exploration season."

The Company also announces that it has granted incentive stock options to purchase 1,950,000 shares of the Company at an exercise price of $0.20 per share for a period of five years to certain directors and consultants in accordance with the provisions of its stock option plan.

Rockridge Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: ROCK ) (OTCQB: RRRLF ) (Frankfurt: RR0 ) ("Rockridge" or the "Company") announces with deep sorrow that a Director of the Company, Richard ("Rick") Kusmirski, P.Geo., M.Sc., passed away on Friday, Dec. 3 rd in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, at the age of 68 after a lengthy illness.

Rick actively participated in the discovery of a number of uranium, gold and base metal deposits, and for several years, in his capacity as Exploration Manager, he directed Cameco Corporation's uranium exploration projects in the Athabasca Basin. In 1999, Rick joined JNR Resources becoming Vice President of Exploration in 2000. Subsequently, he directed the exploration program that led to the discovery of the Maverick Zone on the Moore Lake uranium project with then partner Kennecott Canada. Rick later became JNR's President and CEO in January of 2001, and continued leading the company until February of 2013, JNR was acquired by Denison Mines Corp. by way of a friendly all-share take-over bid. Rick also served as the industry Chair and Director of the Exploration Section of the Saskatchewan Mining Association for many years and was a director of Rockridge Resources Ltd., Bessor Minerals Inc. and several other publicly traded companies.
