RockBridge Announces Copper Assay Results Up to 1.95%

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2010) - RockBridge Resources Inc. (RockBridge) (TSX VENTURE:RBE) is pleased to announce the Copper results of sample analysis resulting from the summer prospecting program from its Cross Hills Newfoundland Rare Earth property. The Cross Hills property consists of 100% interest in 343 mineral claims covering 20,923 acres, prospective for Rare Earth Elements and metals and for Copper. The prospecting program was performed to better define specific drill locations by expanding on RockBridge's existing property sampling.

The analysis of samples from the known Rare Earth Element targets will be completed in the near future.

Prospecting in and around the previously identified Copper showing of 1.89%, as part of a 10 day prospecting program, led to the collection of 30 samples in the area. The Copper mineralization is hosted within an altered granite unit and occurs as disseminations of chalcopyrite and malachite. Twelve samples returned values better than 0.1% Copper with the best assay grading 1.95% Copper. The results of the assays are listed in the table below.

RockBridge President, Gary Mathiesen, stated, "We are pleased that the assays for Copper on our new discovery both verifies RockBridge's initial findings, and provides us with better definition for drilling targets. In addition to the historical and recently discovered Rare Earth targets, the presence of such copper mineralization in a granitic environment could be very significant and the upcoming drill program will aim to test the magnitude of the discovery."
