Additionally, Rocmec will pay a 2% NSR royalty on ounces produced from the acquired mining claims and the royalty is redeemable on demand for an amount of 2 million dollars.

In order to unlock the full potential of the Rocmec 1 gold property, management in collaboration with SGS Geostat Ltee have initiated an exploration programme that includes diamond drilling, mapping and a revision of all the available documentation pertaining to the newly acquired mining claims. To complete part of the work, Rocmec announces a private placement of 7,923,426 flow-through shares at a price of $0.105 per flow-through share and 983,333 flow-through units of the Company, at a purchase price of $0,12 per FT Unit.

The Rocmec 1 Gold Property

The Rocmec 1 gold property is located in the Dasserat Township, some 36 km west of Rouyn-Noranda (Quebec) in the Abitibi region of Quebec, in close proximity to two World-Class Mining Camps, the Rouyn-Noranda Copper Gold Camp to the SE in Quebec, and the Kirkland Lake / Larder Lake Gold Camp to the SW in Ontario.

The gold mineralization at the Rocmec 1 property is linked to E-NE, centimetric and metric wide quartz veins within a kilometric long by 600 m wide gabbro to granodiorite intrusive host. There are at least six major vein systems identified on the property; however, recent underground work by the Company has confirmed that several veins are likely part of the same system, simply offset by north trending faults. The veins are part of diverging / converging or an anastomosing fracture system than includes shearing, alteration (silica, chlorite, sericite, epidote and carbonate) and 2 to 10% disseminated and vein-type pyrite that can attain overall widths in excess of 30 m.

A technical report (dated March 19, 2007), compliant with National Instrument (NI) 43-101 standards of disclosure, was prepared by Systemes Geostat International Inc. of Blainville (Quebec) identified mineral resources of 521,800 tonnes @ 5.15 g/t gold (86,550 ounces of gold) in the Measured and Indicated Resources category. There is an additional 2,250,000 tonnes @ 6.32 g/t gold (456,900 ounces of gold) in the Inferred Resources category.
