Rochester Finds New Gold/Silver Vein Structures at Mina Real and Stakes Additional Ground

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA --(CCNMatthews - Jan. 30, 2007) - Rochester Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:RCT)(OTCBB:RCTFF)(FWB:R5I):

The Board of Directors is pleased to announce that it's wholly owned subsidiary, Mina Real Mexico S.A. de C.V., has staked an additional 3,981 hectares adjacent to the 3,377 hectares previously comprising the Mina Real concessions in Nayarit, Mexico.

"We are very excited about the potential that this additional ground provides" commented Dr. Parra. "In addition to protecting the continuity of five vein structures - La Florida, El Puerto 1, El Puerto 2, Tajos Cuates 1 and Tajos Cuates 2 - as well as three recently discovered veins on the property, there is potential that this additional ground could add to the Company's resource base and provide additional mill feed to the recently constructed conventional mill on the property. We have also located several outcrops on the properties that indicate the existence of additional veins that were previously undiscovered. Assay results from these new veins will be released once independent assay results are obtained. A drilling and exploration program is being developed to define the potential of the vein structures uncovered to date on both the existing and recently acquired ground. With the start-up of milling operations at our newly constructed 200 tonnes/day mill earlier this month, we are now well positioned to take full advantage of any opportunities to expand our development mining activities and milling capacity."

Dr. Alfredo Parra, the company's President, has an extensive background in mining exploration and operations, including senior management level positions with major Mexican based corporations such as CIA Minera Penoles and Kennecott. Dr. Parra is currently the Company's in-house Qualified Person and QP Member of the Mining and Metallurgical Society of America with special expertise in Mining.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD
