Rocmec Mining Inc.: Geostat Confirms the Presence of 2 Mineralised Structures on Puma Property in Peru

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Jan. 15, 2008) - Rocmec Mining inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to inform its shareholders that it has received a first geological report prepared by Systeme Geostat International inc (SGII), following a visit conducted in December, of the Peruvian mining claims in which Rocmec holds a purchasing option (see press release dated November 8th, 2007).

The author identified 2 distinct narrow veins, both visible at the surface, with widths varying between several centimeters to a meter. The sampling was done under the supervision of Mr. Maxime Dupere P. Geo of (SGII), author of the report.

The main vein is visible over a distance of more than 450 meters, with a high grade of 22.94 g/t gold over 12 cm with further grades of 9.93 g/t gold over 6 cm and 3.25 g/t gold over 6 cm in the hangingwall and footwall, respectively. The Ramal vein is visible over a distance of more than 300 meters, with a high grade of 3.49 g/t gold over 20 cm with further grades of 3.12 g/t gold over 10 cm and 47.43 g/t gold over 12 cm in the hangingwall and footwall, respectively.

Rocmec is very pleased with this new information. Furthermore, the high grades found in the hangingwall and footwall will greatly facilitate the evaluation process of the project.

Three other sites located along the access road on the northeastern part of the La Quinta mining property were also sampled. In addition to the veins which were previously sampled, a quartz vein with a width of 45 cm contained a grade of 1.66 g/t gold. Furthermore, the rock material located in proximity, contained grades of 1.39 over 20 cm and 2.41 g/t gold over 20 cm.

In light of the results presented in the report written by SGII, management has made the decision to proceed with the recommended steps; to undertake diamond drilling, move ahead with the geological assessment of the other mineralised structures, and begin surveying the area where the makeshift operation is presently located. An independent Peruvian geologist is currently proceeding with the geological follow-up and the company is presently reviewing the proposals for the diamond drilling and surveying.

A table of the results is available at the following address:

Rocmec Mining's growth strategy is focused on developing quality assets that will significantly enhance shareholder value by using the thermal fragmentation method throughout the Americas to extract narrow vein ore bodies. By utilising the thermal fragmentation method in combination with conventional mining methods, the company aims to become a mid-tier gold producer. In addition, by providing service agreements, the company intends to generate additional revenue and accelerate the spread of this unique technology.

"Thermal fragmentation - the way of the future for mining narrow high-grade veins."
