Rockhaven Resources Ltd. Announces 2009 Exploration Plans at the Plata and Groundhog Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 2, 2009) - Rockhaven Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:RK) ("Rockhaven") is pleased to announce its 2009 exploration plans for two of its wholly owned properties.

Exploration at the Plata silver-gold-lead property will begin in early June and will include diamond drilling, trenching, soil sampling and prospecting. Approximately 500 m of diamond drilling are planned to test the core of a strong geophysical conductor identified downdip of high grade surface showings that were discovered in 2008 within the plane of the Plata Thrust Fault. Chip samples from heavily disseminated mineralization exposed in two trenches spaced 200 m apart within the new discovery averaged 1060 g/t silver, 3.57 g/t gold and 6.6% lead over 1.87 m; and, a specimen of nearly massive boulangerite and tetrahedrite assayed 5340 g/t silver and 78.3 g/t gold. A recently completed EM interpretation has shown that the conductivity downdip of the new area of mineralization is much stronger than conductivity elsewhere along the thrust fault (including areas of known mineralization that were drilled in 2008). This suggests that the conductor could be caused by a zone of more sulphide-rich material. In general, silver and gold grades at the Plata property are positively correlated with sulphide abundance. Thus, the conductor is considered a prime exploration target. Excavator trenching is also planned to further delineate high grade silver-lead veins and stockwork systems developed elsewhere on the Plata property.

Exploration on the Groundhog property will consist of excavator trenching to expand known silver-lead-zinc vein showings and to evaluate potential for manto-style replacement deposits. A Yukon Mining Incentives Program grant has been approved by the Government of Yukon to help fund this year's program at the Groundhog property.

The company also announces that it has granted an incentive stock option to one of its directors under its Incentive Stock Option Plan, entitling him to purchase up to 50,000 shares at a price of $0.20 per share for a period of five years.
