Rocky Mountain Discovers New Vanadium Zinc Zone at Gibellini Project, Nevada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 25, 2008) - ROCKY MOUNTAIN RESOURCES CORP. (TSX VENTURE:RKY) is pleased to announce the results of a 16 hole exploration drill test (4920 feet) on the Gibellini Project, 24 miles south of Eureka, Nevada. The program was designed to test soil vanadium and zinc anomalies 500 meters south of the known Gibellini vanadium deposit and three nickel vanadium zinc breccia pipes identified on the property.

Three holes in the Rich Hill area tested a portion of the soil anomaly, identified last summer, and discovered a stacked zone of ore grade vanadium rich shale (shown below). The shale starts at the surface, on the top of a hill, and there appears to be four stacked zones of shale enriched in vanadium and zinc. The table and map below are the results of the Rich Hill test.

"This opens up significant potential to expand and develop a new vanadium-zinc deposit at the Gibellini project. This new zone, similar to the main Gibellini deposit is well situated for mining and preliminary metallurgical tests at Gibellini suggest the mineralization might be processed by heap leach techniques, which would open the door to low cost production at the project with relatively low start-up capital demands," says Brian McAlister, President of Rocky Mountain Resources. "We now have additional exploration potential along with the newly announced vanadium resource."

Drilling was conducted by Drift Exploration, of Elko, Nevada. Assay
analysis was conducted by ALS Chemex of Sparks, Nevada. Quality control and
sampling was conducted by independent contractors. All widths are estimated
as true widths.

In addition, thirteen holes were also drilled to explore three nickel-vanadium-zinc bearing breccia pipes discovered on the property hosted in a massive Devonian aged limestone. The pipes were 50 to 200 feet across and had been partially replaced by manganese and iron oxides. Surface and underground sampling had identified zones of strong nickel, zinc, and vanadium with minor amounts of molybdenum, cobalt, barite, and platinum. The results of the holes are shown in the table below. Results were calculated at a 0.10 % cut-off for nickel, vanadium, and zinc.

significant mineralized intercepts in that hole. Drill intervals are
reported instead of true widths because of the difficulty to calculate the
orientation of the breccia pipes with limited drilling. All the holes were
angled across the pipes.


The results of the breccia pipe tests suggest that the nickel and vanadium values decrease at depth and at 150 feet deep the pipes are only weakly mineralized with zinc. No additional work is currently planed on the breccia pipe targets. The soil anomaly is larger in areal extent than the Gibellini deposit and will take additional work to fully delineate the Rich Hill zone.
