Solomon Resources Provides Rwandan Tin Project Update

Solomon Resources Limited (SRB.V) today reported on its preliminary exploration of the Rurembo Tin Project in the Republic of Rwanda. The Rurembo licence area includes highly prospective pegmatite swarms immediately adjacent to the former Belgian-owned cassiterite-columbite-tantalite mine at Gatumba and unexplored strike extensions of that metallogenic district to the north.

Solomon executed an Option Agreement effective July 12th, 2012 with the principals of Speck Minerals Ltd., a Rwandan corporation, to acquire (subject to regulatory approval) a 100% interest in the Rurembo licence. The licence permits prospecting for wolframite, cassiterite and coltan within a concession covering 110,984 hectares located in western Rwanda.

The Rurembo Project is a grassroots exploration for Sn-Ta-Nb (W), largely predicated upon the proximity of the former Belgian mine at Gatumba now privately operated as the Gatumba Mining Concession and the projected strike extensions of that geological environment into the Rurembo Licence Area.

Exploration in the Rurembo Licence area will be directed at pegmatites variably mineralized with columbite-tantalite and/or cassiterite. Solomon field crews mobilized to the Republic of Rwanda on August 2nd, 2012. The Company has leased a field office and expat residence in the capital city of Kigali and hired a Country Manager and support staff.
