Rockland Completes Drilling at Schefferville Gold Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 20, 2010) - Rockland Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:RL) (the "Company") reports that the drilling program announced on September 21, 2010 at the Company's Schefferville gold property in Québec has been completed. Drill core is currently being logged and saw cut at Rockland's core facility in Schefferville. Half-split core from selected assay intervals will be shipped via train to Sept-Îles, Québec, and forwarded to ALS Chemex in Val-d'Or, Québec for crushing and pulverizing. Final fire assay and multi-element geochemical analyses will be done by the ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver.

Rockland is earning a 55% interest on part of the property from Western Troy Capital Resources Inc. The Western Troy claims are in 10 distinct blocks staked over known gold showings originally discovered in the mid 1980's by Québec government geologists. Many of the claims are contiguous and intermingled with Rockland's existing gold claims, optioned from E.D. Black, where Rockland is earning a 100% interest.
