A LEADING EXPLORATION COMPANY IN THE PROLIFIC RED LAKE GOLD CAMP IN ONTARIO

Business Summary

Rubicon Minerals Corporation is a well-funded, top tier, gold exploration company deriving its strength from a hands-on management team with a track record of discovery.

Rubicon controls over 65,000 acres of prime exploration ground in the prolific Red Lake gold camp of Ontario, Canada, which hosts Goldcorp's high-grade, world class Red Lake Mine. Rubicon's flagship property is the 100%-controlled Phoenix Gold Project, located in the heart of this producing camp.

Through a transaction completed in May, 2007 with former Goldcorp Inc. Chairman and CEO, Rob McEwen, Rubicon acquired 380,800 acres of prospective exploration ground in Alaska in the area of the 5.6 million ounce Pogo deposit as well as a 225,000 acre land package in northeast Nevada.

WHY RED LAKE?

The Red Lake Footprint

Few, if any, gold belts in the world can compete with these grades. Rubicon is uniquely positioned among junior explorers in the market place with an advanced 100% controlled project (Phoenix Gold Project) and large camp land holdings under option to Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd., Solitaire Minerals Corp. and Redstar Gold Corp. Armed with a significant treasury, Rubicon plans $11 million of drill focused programs in Red Lake in 2008.

Recent News: Rubicon Announces $25 million Expanded 12 Month Drill Program F2 Gold Zone, Phoenix Gold Project, Red Lake Ontario -80,000 metre (262,000 foot) program will test an area six times that of the current F2 Core Zone -

Rubicon Minerals Corporation announce that its Board of Directors have approved an expanded exploration program, to include a minimum of 80,000 metres (262,000 feet) of diamond drilling at its flagship Phoenix Gold Project, located in the heart of the prolific Red Lake Gold District. The 12-month, accelerated and expanded program has been designed in response to continuing excellent gold intercepts from the F2 Gold Zone to test the extent of the gold system well beyond the core area drilled to date (see news releases from March 12, 2008, onwards for drill results).

"The F2 Gold Zone is a significant discovery and our recent results indicate both that high-grade gold intercepts extend well beyond our core area of drilling and that the limits of the gold system are yet to be defined.

With our strong treasury, we are able to fast track our program through the advantage of drilling from underground.

Our goal is to demonstrate the significant size potential of this high-grade gold system. Our aggressive 12 month program will rank as one of the most drill-intensive programs in the marketplace and will provide a steady stream of results throughout" stated David Adamson, President and CEO.

Fundamental Considerations

Rubicon's strength is its hands-on management team that has acquired an outstanding portfolio of quality gold projects in North America.

David Adamson (President) and Matthew Wunder (VP-Exploration) have a proven discovery track record in the mineral exploration industry.

Management has demonstrated its abilities to identify world-class settings by attracting major mining companies such as Goldcorp, Agnico-Eagle and AngloGold as a Joint Venture partners in the Red Lake gold district, and IAMGold, Meridian, Placer Dome and Billiton Plc, the world's fifth largest mining company.

Rubicon is well financed

Rubicon's experienced and capable technical management group focuses 100% of its efforts on maximizing shareholder value through the acquisition, exploration and responsible development of gold projects.
