TORONTO, ONTARIO, September 11, 2012:  Rainbow Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RBW) ("Rainbow" or the "Company") is pleased to report that its shares are scheduled to begin trading on the OTCQX, the premier tier of the United States' over-the-counter market, on Wednesday, September 12, 2012, under the symbol "RIINF".

"We're very pleased to be able to provide this additional liquidity for our shareholders, beyond just the OTC Pink Sheet listing, which is part of a broader strategy to significantly increase the awareness of Rainbow in the American market," explained Rainbow President David W. Johnston.   "This is an important and exciting period in our company's development with intense drilling and prospecting activity throughout our 17,000-hectare West Kootenay land package led by the International Property in southeast British Columbia, while a drill program is set to begin soon at our one U.S. project - the Jewel Ridge Gold-Silver Property in Nevada."

In British Columbia, drilling continues at Rainbow's International Silver Property where 10 holes have been completed to date.  Drilling at Gold Viking, 70 kilometres to the south of the International, is scheduled to begin following completion of Phase 1 drilling at the International.

In Nevada, final steps are underway to launch a Phase 1 reverse circulation (RC) drill program at Jewel Ridge, contiguous to Barrick Gold's Ruby Hill Mine, where Rainbow will be following up on encouraging results from a spring field exploration program as well as  historical near-surface drill intercepts including 2.1 g/t Au over 39.6 metres (2004).
