Rockex Listing Under Review

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 27, 2013) - Rockex Mining Corporation ("Rockex" or the "Company") (TSX:RXM) announces that it has received notice from the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "Exchange") that its listing is under review for a period of 120 days (the "Remedial Review Period") as a result of falling below the Exchange's 'public float' requirements - namely, having publicly traded shares with a market value of at least $2,000,000 held by shareholders who are not officers, directors, insiders or their associates or affiliates. In the event that the Company is unable to regain compliance with the Exchange's listing requirements within the Remedial Review Period a meeting will be held with the Exchange wherein the Company will be given the opportunity to present a case to maintain its listing. If the Exchange is not convinced with the Company's case presented at the meeting, the Exchange will give the Company 30 days' notice of the intention to de-list its shares from the Exchange. The Company is reviewing the situation with a view to rectifying the public float deficiency which is, in part, a consequence of the officers and directors holding approximately 62% of the issued and outstanding shares. The Company is confident that it should be able to regain compliance with the Exchange's requirements during the Remedial Review Period.
