VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2011) - Rockgate Capital Corp. (TSX:RGT) (the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from five diamond drill holes completed on the 084 Trend, North Zone Area at Rockgate's 100% owned Falea Project. Assay results are as follows in Table 1.

Table 1
Hole Name From (m) To (m) Length (m) U3O8% XRF Ag (g/t) Cu %
DF-265 275.0 279.0 4.0 0.19 663.8 0.13
DF-266 277.0 279.0 2.0 0.40 905.0 0.34

DF-268 278.0 281.0 3.0 0.18 692.0 0.38
DF-269 277.0 280.0 3.0 0.11 245.0 1.11
Core lengths are estimated to be 100 percent of true width.

084 Trend

  • Mineralization is hosted in competent, flat-lying sandstones near the unconformity.
  • The continuing confirmation of the tabular and uniform nature of the orebody indicates that a room and pillar mining operation should be feasible.
  • 25 x 25 metre grid drilling confirms consistent high grade uranium mineralization.
  • Higher grade mineralization along north-west trend.

General Discussion

  • Additional high-grade uranium-silver mineralization may be associated with similar north-west trends already identified in the North Zone.
  • The Falea Sedimentary Basin appears to be similar in age and geological setting to the Athabasca Basin in Canada. The 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.
  • Maps showing drill collar locations and cross sections are available on
