Rockgate Definition Drilling Intersects 1.09% U3O8, 443 g/tonne Ag and 0.26% Cu over 2.0 metres at North Zone, Falea Project in Mali, West Africa

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2011) - Rockgate Capital Corp. (TSX:RGT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from five diamond drill holes completed along and in close proximity to the Road Fault, at the North Zone of Rockgate's 100% owned Falea Project. Assay results are as follows:

General Discussion

  • Holes DF 270-272 were drilled to test for the potential continuation of the 084 trend to the southeast across the Road Fault.
  • Holes DF 273 and 274 were drilled to test for the potential continuation of the PES South.
  • Diamond drill holes from Road Fault area when drilled east to west can intercept the same horizon across the fault. The Road Fault is a reverse structure with approximately 65 metres off set in dip-slip movement.
  • Drill along the Road Fault in the North Area continues to demonstrate good continuity and grade for both uranium and silver.
  • Diamond drilling of the North Zone continues to define and expand the zone.
  • Exploration drilling is currently evaluating untested structures in the North Zone area.
  • A third diamond drill is currently being mobilized to site and expected to arrive in early April. A fourth drill is planned to arrive on site mid-summer.
  • Diamond drilling will test the Bodi and Kania Showings, to identify near-surface, bulk tonnage mineralization in 2011.
  • The Falea Sedimentary Basin appears to be similar in age and geological setting to the Athabasca Basin in Canada. These Falea Basin hosts high-grade uranium mineralization similar to that of the Athabasca Basin.
  • To date, only 5-6 percent of area hosting down-hole radiometric anomalies has been drill tested.

Mr. Lorne Warner, P. Geo, Director and VP Exploration, is the Qualified Person for the Company under NI 43-101. All core samples are cut in half on site and sent to ALS-Chemex in Bamako for direct shipment to ALS-Chemex in Johannesburg, South Africa, for ICP-MS and XRF analysis. The company inserts a standard, blank and requests a duplicate sample be run in every batch of 20 samples. In addition, the lab inserts in-house blanks, standards, and duplicates with each shipment. Data that falls outside the control limits are checked and repeated as necessary.
