Phase 1 drilling at the Shihan VMS Property has now been completed in 30 drill holes totaling 2,984.5 metres. The Zinc Zone is interpreted as a single lens of semi-massive to massive sulphides located along a favorable felsic horizon. It has a maximum surface strike length of 150 metres and has been drill tested to a maximum vertical depth of approximately 150 metres. The zone remains open at depth. The favourable horizon hosting the Zinc Zone has a strike length in excess of 2 km and remains an important exploration target for additional VMS Zones.

Holes 8, 9, 18 and 19 intersected minor disseminated sulphide mineralization along the favourable felsic horizon assisting in defining the strike limits of the zone. Hole 10 intersected a diabase dyke at the anticipated intersection of the Zinc Zone.

Additional assay results from the remaining holes (RS07-20 to 30) will be released once the Company receives the results from the assay lab.

The Rockcliff boreholes being reported today are confirmatory in nature and are exploring the general vicinity where boreholes completed in 1980 by Westfield Minerals Ltd. outlined a near surface historical resource of 67,132 tonnes grading 12% zinc and 280 g/t silver. A 43-101 report on the Shihan property by CCIC Inc. dated November 14, 2006 concluded that the historical resource was not compliant with National Instrument 43-101and as such should not be relied upon. However, the historical estimate was determined to be relevant to the Company's interest in the property and was most likely reliable based on the information and methods used at the time. They recommended significant additional drilling of the Zinc Zone and along its potential strike and depth extensions to determine the scope of the mineralization.

QA-QC STATEMENT

Peter Wood, P.Eng., P.Geo., VP Exploration of Rockcliff, a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for the verification and quality assurance of Rockcliff's exploration data and analytical results. Samples of half core are packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff's field office to Accurassay Laboratories in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Accurassay is a Canadian assay lab accredited by the Standard Council of Canada to ISO/IEC 17025 guidelines for precious metal and base metal analyses and meets all of the requirements outlined for NI 43-101.

Each bagged core sample is dried if necessary, crushed and pulverized to 90% minus 150 mesh and a 250-gram pulp is then prepared for assaying. A 10 g cut is taken from each pulp for base metal and ICP analyses and leached in a multi acid (total) digest and then analyzed for a variety of metals (including copper, lead, silver and zinc) by ICP-AES. Ore grade assays (greater than 5000ppm) are then determined by atomic absorption. Gold concentrations are determined by fire assay using a 1 assay-ton charge followed by an atomic absorption finish. Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the sample stream to ensure lab integrity.

Ken Lapierre P.Geo., President & CEO of Rockcliff, a qualified person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101, has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.
