Rocmec Initiates a Diamond Drill Campaign at its Rocmec 1 Property

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2009) - Rocmec Mining Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to announce that over the course of the next few days it will initiate a 1600 metre diamond drill campaign at its Rocmec 1 gold property. This campaign is a continuation of the very successful diamond drill programme conducted during 2008 and will focus on targeting the McDowell, Front West, Talus and the Boucher 1 & 2 structures at depths ranging from between -200 and -400 metres. SGS Geostat Ltee of Blainville (Quebec) has been mandated to plan the diamond drill programme and also prepare a pre-feasibility study that will include a new mineral resource calculation. Management expects to receive the reports before year-end.

The Rocmec 1 Property

The Rocmec 1 property is located in the Dasserat Township, some 36 km west of Rouyn-Noranda (Quebec) in the Abitibi region of Quebec, in close proximity to two World-Class Mining Camps, the Rouyn-Noranda Copper Gold Camp to the SE in Quebec, and the Kirkland Lake / Larder Lake Gold Camp to the SW in Ontario.

The gold mineralization at the Rocmec 1 property is linked to E-NE, centimetric and metric wide quartz veins within a kilometric long by 600 m wide gabbro to granodiorite intrusive host. There are at least six major vein systems identified on the property; however, recent underground work by the Company has confirmed that several veins are likely part of the same system, simply offset by north trending faults. The veins are part of diverging / converging or an anastomosing fracture system than includes shearing, alteration (silica, chlorite, sericite, epidote and carbonate) and 2 to 10% disseminated and vein-type pyrite that can attain overall widths in excess of 30 m.

A technical report (dated March 19, 2007), compliant with National Instrument (NI) 43-101 standards of disclosure, was prepared by Systemes Geostat International Inc. of Blainville (Quebec) identified mineral resources of 521,800 tonnes @ 5.15 g/t gold (86,550 ounces of gold) in the Measured and Indicated Resources category. There is an additional 2,250,000 tonnes @ 6.32 g/t gold (456,900 ounces of gold) in the Inferred Resources category.
