Rocmec Announces Very Positive Results From its First Sampling in Peru

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 20, 2007) - Rocmec Mining inc. (the "Company", (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to announce results of the first sampling programme initiated on the Puma property, located 80 km from the city of Arequipa, Peru. The sampling is part of the due diligence being conducted on the Puma property following a purchase option agreement signed between the parties in November 2007 (see press release dated November 8th, 2007). Most of the samples were taken from the drifts, the others were taken from surface and from the small on-site mill.

The samples were collected under the direct supervision of Mr. Pierre C. Labreque, an independent engineer-geologist. Mr. Labreque, knows this part of the world very well, having been mandated by other mining companies in the past. The objective was to systematically sample, over a length of 65 metres, the mineralised veins located in the underground drifts. Samples from the veins, hangwall and footwall were taken every 5 metres over the entire length.

The sampling work conducted also revealed that the quartz veins contain an important quantity of hematite. Management is very pleased with results obtained from the CIMM Peru S.A. laboratory, located in Lima, Peru.

In addition to the sampling, the due diligence process currently underway also includes title verification, systematic stripping and sampling of surface veins in order to verify their gold potential close to underground excavation. Management will also analyze the costs associated with the construction of a 100 tpd modular treatment plant that would be located on-site or nearby. Additionally, subject to the availability of a diamond drill, management plans on conducting diamond drilling on the property before exercising its purchase option.

This news release has been prepared and revised under the surveillance of Mr. Pierre C. Labreque, an independent engineer-geologist.

About the Puma property

The Puma property contains 6 narrow vein gold concessions covering 1,700 hectares and located approximately 80 km from the city of Arequipa, Peru. One of the concessions is currently in operation using small-scale traditional mining methods, producing about 10 tonnes of very high grade ore daily. All the necessary mining services are readily available and distance between the city and the properties is well traveled by an access road that is used daily to transport ore and mining materials to and from the site. Rocmec plans on developing the project with a canadian partner, RSW-Beroma, who has been travelling extensively in Peru for the past three years especially in the Arequipa area evaluating the best gold properties.
