Message: RX Exploration Announces ISS Recommendation That Shareholders Vote
FOR the RXE Nominees on the BLUE Proxy

Jun. 24, 2011 (Marketwire Canada) --


TORONTO, ONTARIO -- RX EXPLORATION INC. ("RXE" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RXE)(OTCQX:RXEXF) announced today that Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. ("ISS") has recommended that its clients vote FOR the RXE nominees on the BLUE proxy.

RXE noted that ISS is a leading independent international corporate governance analysis and proxy voting firm. ISS makes its recommendation after hearing from both sides and carefully considering what's in the best interests of shareholders. Its recommendations assist shareholders in making voting choices regarding proxy voting decisions. The recommendation in support of RXE's nominees from ISS follows a similarly favourable recommendation from North America's other major independent proxy advisor, Glass Lewis.

In recommending that its clients vote FOR the RXE nominees on the BLUE proxy, ISS stated:*

"In terms of job experience, the credentials of [RXE's] slate would appear to be superior to that of the dissident slate. Based on the experience of the [RXE] team, it may be expected that the [RXE] team would be able to perform effectively and deliver value."

ISS added,

"From a perusal of the SEDAR filings, it appears that a Technical Report NI 43-101 has not been filed recently. The last filing on record dates back to November 2009. Since substantial developments would have taken place after that date, an independent study [as proposed by RXE's nominees] is a welcome step."

John O'Donnell, Chairman of RXE, commented: "RXE has now received recommendations from both of the major independent proxy advisory services, representing powerful third party endorsements to vote the BLUE proxy. Once again, we call on all shareholders to deliver their proxies as soon as possible, no matter how large or how small. Even if you have already voted for the dissidents, you can change your mind and vote BLUE to support RXE's new team and its plan to build a world-class mining company that creates long-term, sustainable value for all shareholders."

Engagement of Auditor

Separately, RXE confirmed the engagement of auditor Fuller Landau to review RXE's financial records to gain a better understanding of its current financial position. RXE had intended to carry out the review discreetly but became obliged to confirm it following an announcement about the engagement by the dissidents yesterday.

Voting Instructions

RXE recommends that shareholders vote only the BLUE proxy FOR the RXE nominees as the primary step towards real value creation. A completed BLUE proxy will replace any previously voted proxy – dissident or the original Management proxy mailed in May.

In order to be counted at the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders, the BLUE proxy should be voted well in advance of the proxy voting deadline of July 4, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. (Toronto time). Please do not attempt to mail your proxy unless you have no other alternative. Shareholders who require assistance voting the BLUE proxy should please contact Laurel Hill Advisory Group at 1-877-304-0211 or by e-mail at [email protected].

The vote will take place at the adjourned Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders on July 6, 2011 at 4:30 p.m. (Toronto time) at the Ontario Bar Association Conference Centre, Salon 3, 20 Toronto Street, Toronto, Ontario M5C 2B8.
