(TSXV: RDG) (OTCQB: RDGMF) (FSE: 0GC0) ("Ridgeline" or the "Company") announces that, subject to regulatory approval, it has increased the previously announced non-brokered private placement (see new release September 9, 2022) to include up to 12,732,500 units ("Units") at a price of $0.20 per Unit for gross proceeds of $2,546,500. Each Unit will consist of one common share and one-half of one warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of the Company at a price of $0.30 per share for a period of 24 months.

The proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used to fund the Company's exploration programs per the Company's news release dated August 31, 2022 and for general working capital.

Certain directors and officers of the Company may acquire securities under the private placement. Any such participation would be considered to be a "related party transaction" as defined under Multilateral Instrument 61-101 ("MI 61-101"). The transaction will be exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements of MI 61-101 as neither the fair market value of any shares issued to or the consideration paid by such persons will exceed 25% of the Company's market capitalization.

The Company may pay a finder's fee in connection with the private placement and this financing is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company anticipates closing of the private placement as soon as practicable subject to receipt of all necessary regulatory approvals.
