Rocmec Reports an 80% Increase in Gold Resources for the Boucher Structure at its Rocmec 1 Gold Property

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) - Rocmec Mining inc. (the « company ») (TSX VENTURE:RMI) (FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to announce results of the new NI43-101 resource calculation report prepared by SGS Geostat regarding its Rocmec 1 gold property located in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

The results are quite impressive especially for the Boucher structures where the resource of inferred ounces went from 208,000 ounces to over 376,000 ounces, but most encouraging are the grades of 13.77g/t and 15.86 g/t for the Boucher and Boucher 2 structures respectively (high grades were capped at 45 g/t).

In summary, by viewing the classification table of global resources below, prepared with a cut-off grade of 3 g/t, an industry standard, the measured/indicated gold ounces total 85,900 vs. 75,900 ounces in 2007 and inferred gold ounces total 556,400 vs. 318,500 in 2007.

The Front West and McDowell 2 structures were estimated using a 2D polygonal estimation method, whereas the remaining structures (Talus, Shaft, Boucher and Boucher 2) were estimated using the 2D block model estimation method.

Polygonal parameters
SGS used mineralized intervals of a minimum of 0.3m true width for all of the structures. The 0.3m minimum width was selected according to the mining method used by Rocmec which is thermal fragmentation, extracting narrow structures and veins with a minimum of 0.3m (true width).
A radius of 35m was used
A maximum of 12 sides was used
The polygons are within Rocmec's claims and are not above overburden or topographic contact.

Bloc Model parameters
Block modeling was done on the Boucher, Boucher 2, McDowell, Shaft and Talus veins/structures.
SGS used mineralized intervals of a minimum of 0.3m true width for all of the structures.
The 0.3m minimum width was taken selected according to the mining method used by Rocmec which is thermal fragmentation, extracting narrow structures and veins with a minimum of 0.3m (true width).
The block model is within Rocmec's claims. They are considered in good standing.
Coordinates used are in local mining grid.
A maximum elevation level of 9990m was used since no topographic surface is available for the moment.
A different set of 2D composites was used for the estimation of the Boucher and Boucher 2 structures from the rest of the Rocmec 1 structures.
A specific gravity of 2.7 was used.
Normal inversed distance was used for the estimation.
The estimated resources were classified in accordance with the specifications of the 43-101 Policy, namely in measured, indicated, and inferred resources.
Classification was done according to the density of drilling and level of confidence of the data.

Classification
The estimated resources were classified in accordance with the specifications of the 43-101 Policy, namely in measured, indicated, and inferred resources. Classification was done according to the density of drilling and level of confidence of the data.
Measured Category
An outline was drawn and used in the block modeling software in the vicinity of existing underground openings.
Indicated Category
An outline was drawn and used in the block modeling software in the neighbouring of existing openings and closed spacing intersects, according to the amount of available intersects.
Inferred Category
An outline was drawn and used in the block modeling software within the perimeter of the modeled zone and recognized by at least a pierce point.
