Rockcliff Acquires Jackfish Nickel Property, Snow Lake, Manitoba

SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2007) - Rockcliff Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RCR) is pleased to announce that it has signed an option agreement dated August 30, 2007 to acquire a 100% interest in the Jackfish Nickel Property from W. Bruce Dunlop Limited. The property is located within the Snow Lake District in Manitoba and adjoins Rockcliff's recently staked ground covering the prospective near surface nickel-bearing zones within the Jackfish Lake Gabbro. Additional areas on the property host near surface VMS zones containing copper and zinc mineralization. The property is located within the Flin Flon greenstone belt, one of the most prolific and largest Paleoproterozoic VMS districts in the world.

Highlights of near surface nickel-copper results of historical drill intersected core lengths located along the margins of the Jackfish Lake Gabbro include:

- 3.0 metres grading 2.75% nickel and 0.50% copper;

- 1.3 metres grading 2.43% nickel and 2.41% copper; and

- 1.3 metres grading 2.82% nickel and 2.53% copper.

Highlights of near surface copper-zinc results of historical drill intersected core lengths located proximal to the Jackfish Lake Gabbro include:

- 9.1 metres grading 0.91% copper and 2.02% zinc;

- 4.2 metres grading 0.80% copper and 1.11% zinc;

- 14.3 metres grading 0.53% copper and 0.82% zinc; and

- 8.0 metres grading 0.52% copper and 0.92% zinc;

The Jackfish Lake Nickel property totalling over 28km2 represents a large underexplored area within Rockcliff's present Snow Lake Project that contains favourable host rocks for nickel-copper-platinum group mineralization.

Rockcliff's 2007/08 exploration plans will initially include identification and expansion of known zones of nickel-copper mineralization that occur along the margins of the Jackfish Lake Gabbro. The program will focus on airborne geophysics and diamond drilling.

To earn a 100% in the property, Rockcliff must pay $100,000 and issue 100,000 shares in escalating, incremental payments over a four year period. In addition, Rockcliff will be required to incur aggregate, escalating, exploration expenditures totalling $350,000 over a four year period. If Rockcliff earns its interest in the property, W. Bruce Dunlop Limited will retain a 3% Net Smelter Return Royalty. Rockcliff can purchase two thirds of the NSR (2.0%) for $2,000,000 cash and will have the first right of refusal on the remaining 1% NSR. In the first year of the option, Rockcliff must pay $22,500 in cash, issue 40,000 Rockcliff shares and incur exploration expenditures totalling $50,000.
