("Rainy River" or the "Company") (TSX:RR) will open the market at the Toronto Stock Exchange on Wednesday, November 23, 2011."We are very pleased to have the opportunity to formally recognize our graduation to the main TSX board from TSX Venture Exchange, and look forward to further increasing our visibility to investors on this premier global mining exchange," said Raymond Threlkeld, President and CEO.Rainy River has received a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment (refer to press release dated Nov. 9, 2011) and the Company plans to continue its aggressive drill program and further the exploration of district targets through late 2011 and 2012. With a seasoned management team in place, and a strong balance sheet, the Company is well positioned to achieve its objectives. About Rainy River Rainy River is a Canadian precious metals exploration company whose key asset is the Rainy River Gold Project. With over $105 million in cash and securities, the Company is well funded to conduct a dual-focused drilling program consisting of: 1) definition diamond drilling of the main gold resources in preparation for scoping and prefeasibility studies, and 2) selective diamond drill testing of high-priority gold targets defined primarily by RC drilling within the large gold system centred in Richardson Township. The Company's property is very well located in the southwestern corner of Northern Ontario near the U.S. border. It is accessed by a network of roads and is close to hydro-electric infrastructure. The Rainy River district has a skilled labour force and is one of the lowest-cost areas for mineral exploration and development in Canada. The Company is also working to advance the early-stage discoveries at its TPK Joint Venture Property, also in Ontario, where it can earn a 51% interest in the property from Northern Superior Resources. Ontario has low political risk and, according to the annual Fraser Institute global survey of the mining industry, has consistently ranked as one of the top jurisdictions embracing mineral development.RAINY RIVER RESOURCES LTD.Raymond W.
