VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2010) - Rocky Mountain Resources Corp. ("Rocky Mountain" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RKY) has announced it has engaged Enviroscientists, Inc. of Reno, Nevada to obtain various permits required for the development and operation of the Gibellini Vanadium Project located in Eureka County, Nevada. Pursuant to a meeting with the Bureau of Land Management, Rocky Mountain will prepare an Environmental Assessment to satisfy the BLM requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act. Beginning in May, Enviroscientists will begin biological, cultural, spring/riparian, ground water characterization and waste rock and ore characterization. These studies are scheduled to begin in May.

Bill Radvak, President & CEO of Rocky Mountain, stated: "Enviroscientists has tremendous experience and expertise with the successful execution of the permitting process of mines in Nevada. Engaging Enviroscientists, Inc. to lead the permitting process supports our schedule to have the Gibellini Project in production before the end of 2012." 

Enviroscientists, Inc. is an environmental consulting firm that specializes in assisting natural resource companies throughout western United States with environmental effects and compliance with ever-changing regulations. Based in Reno, Nevada, Enviroscientists (www.enviroincus.com) has planned and prepared over 100 environmental assessment documents required under either the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) or the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Enviroscientists has completed 60 NEPA projects in Nevada.

Vanadium is growing in importance as an alloying metal used to strengthen steel as well as the emerging uses with lithium vanadium batteries and storage cells for renewable energy. With virtually all world production of vanadium coming from China, South Africa and Russia, the Gibellini project, being located in Nevada, gives the Company the opportunity to become North America's first and only primary producer of Vanadium. Gibellini's favorable geologic setting and amenability to low cost heap leach recoveries offer unique low cost production capabilities. A Scoping Study has been completed by AMEC E&C Services and is available on SEDAR and the Company's website www.rkyresources.com.
