Rocmec Announces Preliminary Results of the 2010 Drill Campaign at Its Rocmec 1 Gold Property

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 15, 2010) - Rocmec Mining inc. (the « company ») (TSX VENTURE:RMI) (FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to announce the first results of its diamond drill campaign that was initiated in March 2010. The diamond drill campaign was divided into two parts; the first part was devised to drill 2 holes RS-01-10 and RS-02-10 targeting the Front West, McDowell and Talus mineralised structures. The RS-02-10 drill hole was also targeted to intercept the Boucher structure. The second part of the campaign was devised to drill 12 holes all targeting the Boucher structure.

The results obtained indicate that all the structures were intercepted and gold grades are more than interesting (see table below) such as: 26.92 g/t Au over 20 cm (hole length) for the McDowell structure and 8.72 g/t over 44 cm (hole length) for the Boucher structure. With regards to the Boucher structure, it is important to note that it is an auriferous shear zone; its thickness stretches over more than 2.6 m (hole length) (thickness the length of the core sample).

The diamond drill campaign is now completed. The majority of the drill holes were concentrated towards the Boucher structure and all of them intercepted the structure. It is with great interest that Management awaits the grade results, which will be available during the coming weeks. Considering the important quantity of information that this drill campaign has yielded, a new NI-43-101 compliant resource calculation should be completed by mid-May 2010.

Quality control

The diamond drill campaign was conducted under the supervision of Jean-Philippe Paiement geologist in training and Maxime Dupéré P.Geo. from SGS Canada Inc., and qualified person under the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101. The NQ size core samples were sawed in half, one half kept as reference and the other half sent for analysis (samples measuring less than 22cm were photographed before being completely sampled). The samples were analysed at the SGS Lakefield laboratory, located in Lakefield, Ontario following the 30g Fire Assay metallic screen method. The SGS Lakefield analytical lab follows strict protocols and procedures including the systematic insertion of reference materials, re-assay checks and blanks. The mentioned grades are average grades. The mentioned lengths correspond to the measured core lengths.
