Revett Receives Favorable Decision from Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Rock Creek Legal Proceedings

Revett Minerals Inc. (AMEX: RVM) (TSX: RVM) is pleased to announce it has just received an affirmative decision from the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit relating to the Endangered Species Act (ESA) appeal filed by the Rock Creek Alliance and other environmental groups.
