-- is pleased to announce a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") with a U.S. institution consisting of 2,400,000 units (the "Units") for gross proceeds of $288,000. Each Unit will be issued at a price of $0.12 per Unit and will be comprised of one common share and one warrant (a "Warrant").

The Warrants will be subject to an extended notice period and accelerated expiry. Warrant holders must provide Roughrider with at least 61 days of notice prior to exercising the Warrants. In addition, if Roughrider's shares trade at a price of more than $0.25 for 10 trading days, the Company will have the right, within 15 days, to accelerate the expiry of the Warrants, giving the warrant-holders 30 days to serve the 61 day notice. The Company anticipates paying an 8% finder's fee in connection with this Private Placement.

The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for exploration on the Genesis Property and on Roughrider's 100%-owned Athabasca Properties as well as for general working capital purposes.

All of the securities issued under the Private Placement are subject to a hold period expiring four months and one day from the date of issuance.
