RockBridge Announces Rare Earth Findings and Successful Drill Program Continuation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 24, 2010) - RockBridge Resources Inc. (RockBridge) (TSX VENTURE:RBE) is pleased to announce the Rare Earth assays of sample analysis resulting from the summer prospecting program from its Cross Hills Newfoundland property. In addition RockBridge is pleased to announce the safe continuation of its drill program though Hurricane Igor's passing. 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 summer prospecting program was performed to better define specific drill locations by expanding on RockBridge's existing property sampling. Anomalous Rare Earth values were encountered, and the data is being used to define the diamond drill targets. Additional prospecting is currently taking place on the Cross Hills property to build on the mineralization database of the mostly unexplored prospect.

Only days into RockBridge's drill program on the Cross Hills Newfoundland property, the crews were subjected to hurricane force winds and torrential rainfalls. RockBridge is pleased to report that the drilling program continued through the storm, and the good people of the Town of Grande Le Pierre have emerged safely and are continuing to provide valuable support to the drilling program.

The Rare Earth assay results from the summer prospecting program specifically used zones of high radioactivity to target sampling and have provided anomalous values for Total Rare Earth Oxides up to 0.27%. The data is being used in combination with the spring's assays with results of Total Rare Earth Oxides of up to 1.11% to define drill targets for the current drill program.

RockBridge President, Gary Mathiesen, stated "First and foremost we are pleased to hear that our people and the community of Grand Le Pierre have safely come though this storm. In addition, the crews managed to keep the drilling program running despite the adverse conditions. This most recent Rare Earth assay data is invaluable as we transition from drilling our copper findings to our primary Rare Earth zones."
