Vancouver, British Columbia, December 14, 2016 - Rye Patch Gold Corp. (TSX.V: RPM; OTCQX: RPMGF; FWB: 5TN) (the “Company” or “Rye Patch” - https://www.commodity-tv.net/c/search_adv/?v=296287 ) is pleased to announce the appointment of Tim Baker to the Board of Directors of the Company as an independent director.
Mr. Baker has over 35 years’ experience with mining companies in management and operations, which he attained through his various management positions at globally focused mid‑tier and senior mining companies. 
“Tim is a welcome addition to our Board of Directors,” said William C. Howald, CEO and President of Rye Patch. “His extensive experience in management and operations with producing mining companies will be invaluable as we move the Company into commercial production at Florida Canyon. Tim’s background and depth of experience with Boards of Directors of publicly-traded companies will also be of benefit as the Company moves to enhance its corporate governance processes.”
Tim Baker is currently Chairman of the Board of Golden Star Resources, and a director on the Antofagasta PLC and Sherritt International boards. He was previously Executive Vice‑President and Chief Operating Officer at Kinross Gold Corp. Prior to joining Kinross in 2006, Mr. Baker was Executive General Manager of Placer Dome Chile. He has previously managed mining operations in Chile, Tanzania, Venezuela and the USA, and held production and geological roles in Kenya, Liberia and Canada.
Tim has a B.Sc. in Geology from Edinburgh University and is a member of the Institute of Corporate Directors.
The Company has granted 300,000 common shares at an exercise price of $0.30 per share to Mr. Baker for a term of ten years. The options will vest over 2 years, with 25% vesting 6 months following the grant date and a further 25% every 6 months thereafter.
