VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2011) - Rockland Minerals Corp. (The "Company" or "Rockland"), (TSX VENTURE:RL) is pleased to report that it has retained the services of award-winning IOS Services Geoscientifiques Inc. ("IOS") of Chicoutimi, Québec. IOS is a full service geological consulting firm catering to exploration companies working the province since 1992. IOS is currently assembling a detailed historical compilation of past exploration work on Rockland's Schefferville Gold property. The compilation is taking Rockland's highly encouraging drill results and relating the historical work done on the property since the mid-80's.

In addition to the compilation, IOS will help Rockland manage its field exploration campaigns in 2011. IOS has the capability to provide 'turn-key' geological services with full field support.

IOS has won numerous awards for its exploration excellence in the province of Quebec.
