Rainy River Resources Adopts Advance Notice Policy

TORONTO, March 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Rainy River Resources Ltd. ("Rainy River" or 
the "Company" (RR.TSX)) announced today the approval by its Board of Directors 
of an Advance Notice Policy (the "Policy"), which Policy includes a provision 
that requires advance notice to the Company in circumstances where nominations 
of persons for election to the Board of Directors are made by shareholders of 
the Company (the "Shareholders") other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of 
a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act 
(British Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant 
to the provisions of the Act. 
The Advance Notice Policy fixes a deadline by which holders of record of 
Common Shares must submit director nominations to the secretary of the Company 
prior to any annual or special meeting of Shareholders and sets forth the 
specific information that a Shareholder must include in the written notice to 
the secretary of the Company for an effective nomination to occur. No person 
will be eligible for election as a director of the Company unless nominated in 
accordance with the provisions of the Policy. 
In the case of an annual meeting of Shareholders, notice to the Company must 
be made not less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual 
meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the annual meeting is to be 
held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first 
public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be 
made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such 
public announcement. 
In the case of a special meeting of Shareholders (which is not also an annual 
meeting), notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of 
business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public 
announcement of the date of the special meeting was made. 
The Policy is effective and in full force and effect. In accordance with the 
terms of the Policy, the Policy will be put to Shareholders for approval at 
the annual meeting of Shareholders (the "Meeting") to be held in May of 
2013. If the Policy is not confirmed at the Meeting by resolution of 
Shareholders, the Policy will terminate and be of no further force and effect 
following the termination of the Meeting. 
The full text of the Policy will be available via SEDAR at www.sedar.com. 
About Rainy River 
Rainy River Resources Ltd. is a Canadian precious metals exploration company 
whose key asset is the Rainy River Gold Project, a large gold system centred 
in Richardson Township (part of Chapple Township). As of December 31, 2012, 
the Company had approximately $102 million in cash and cash equivalents and 
short-term investments, and remains well funded for its ongoing activities, 
including: 1) completion of a feasibility level study on the RRGP; 2) 
continuing to grow the existing resource through exploration; 3) conducting a 
condemnation program in areas identified for potential mine facilities; and 4) 
continuing regional exploration. RRGP is very well located in northwestern 
Ontario. 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. 
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.
