Rocmec Cuts 20.3 g/t Au Over 1.8 Metres at Rocmec 1

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2008) - Rocmec Mining inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FRANKFURT:D5O), is pleased to announce that the diamond drill hole RU-07-08 has once again intercepted the Boucher vein returning grades of 20.3 g/t Au over 1.8 metres.

This diamond drill hole RU-07-08 intercepted the Boucher structure in the Western section of the mine some 180 metres more to the West than diamond drill hole RU-03-08. The Boucher structure now stretches more than 400 metres and is in close proximity (less than 200 metres) from existing infrastructure. So far, 10 holes drilled at different angles and depths have intercepted the Boucher structure.

The information gathered will allow Rocmec to analyse different options in order to fully profit from this new discovery. Over the coming months management will decide whether to plan a diamond drill campaign from surface or drive an exploration drift in order to validate the western extensions and at depth. It is important to note that the ore body is open towards the east and west and at depth.
