RNC Minerals Added to MVIS® Global Junior Gold Miners Index

TORONTO, June 17, 2019 /CNW/ - RNC Minerals (TSX: RNX) ("Royal Nickel Corp." or "RNC") is pleased to announce that MVIS® has added RNC Minerals to its MVIS® Global Junior Gold Miners Index.

Mark Selby, President and CEO of RNC, commented "Inclusion in the MVIS® Global Junior Gold Miners Index is another major milestone for RNC. Our inclusion in the index should bring further liquidity and increased market visibility for RNC and reflects the company's growth as a gold producer and developer. With the recent closing of our acquisition of the Higginsville mine and mill from Westgold, the further confirmation of our model for high grade coarse gold at Beta Hunt, and our coming resource update for Beta Hunt at the end of the second quarter, today's announcement is another exciting development for RNC shareholders."
