Rogue Iron Ore Corp. Announces Update on Rapier Gold Spin-Out Transaction

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/14/12 -- Rogue Iron Ore Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RRS) (the "Company" or "Rogue") held its Annual General and Special Meeting ("AGSM") on December 10, 2012. The purpose of the AGSM included obtaining securityholder approval of a proposed spin-out of Rapier Gold Inc. Rapier's intention is to combine Rogue's Timmins West (Pen Gold South) property with Rio Tinto's adjacent Pen Gold North property where a recent gold discovery was made, creating a significant land package along the Porcupine-Destor Fault, 75 km west of Timmins, Ontario. Rogue assigned the rights to explore for gold on its Pen Gold South property to Rapier in exchange for Rapier shares. Under the spin-out transaction, Rogue is implementing a plan of arrangement in which all of its 11 million Rapier shares are to be distributed to Rogue shareholders on the basis of one share of Rapier for every 4.04 shares of Rogue. The securityholder vote held at the AGSM for the Plan of Arrangement spin-out was approved by 99.74% of the voting securityholders.

Due to market conditions and a tight financing timeline, Rapier was unable to meet the entire $4M financing requirement within the timeframe outlined in the Plan of Arrangement and the purchase agreement with Rio Tinto. Upon review by the Supreme Court of BC the court has advised that the Company will need to take this proposal back to the securityholders if changes to the agreement are contemplated. Rapier is working with Rio Tinto to revise the financing terms to reflect prevailing market conditions and remains confident it will be able to complete a financing early in the New Year.

Rogue securityholders will be required to vote their shares again following dissemination of an addendum circular that provides updated information regarding the transaction. The Company plans to complete a revised transaction structure in January 2013 which will include among other updates, a revised financing arrangement with Rio Tinto and the effective date of eligibility of Rogue shareholders entitled to receive Rapier shares.

"The need to adjust the financing conditions, delaying the release of Rapier shares to the Rogue shareholders, is unfortunate, but understandable, given current market conditions. Although Rapier was unable to meet the full $4M requirement in the short timeframe proposed, Rogue is confident, due to the existing level of interest in the financing and in light of ongoing discussions with Rio Tinto, that the transaction will move ahead early in the New Year. We believe the Pen Gold property has considerable exploration potential for gold and believe shareholder value will be enhanced by Rapier's proposed plans for the combined property," stated Freeman Smith, President & CEO.

RAPIER EXPLORATION

Rapier has commenced the first stage of the first phase of exploration on the Pen Gold property, 4 km west-southwest of historical drilling. This work included preliminary mapping, overburden stripping of prospective geology and subsequent channel sampling. The surface work is the foundation to a staged exploration program designed to assist in assembling a more global picture of this area, its mineralization potential, and ultimately, narrow down targets for diamond drilling. Rapier intends to embark on a diamond drill program to test the best targets resulting from this preliminary geological work.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
