VAUDREUIL-DORION, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 2, 2009) - Subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Stock Exchange Rocmec Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FRANKFURT:D5O), Rocmec is pleased that it has closed a non-brokered private placement of 8,000,000 units, at a price of $0.10 per unit, for gross proceeds of $800,000. Each unit is comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole common share purchase warrant entitles the holder thereof to purchase one additional common share of Rocmec, at a price of $0.12 per common share, for a period of 24 months following the closing of the private placement.

In connection with the private placement, a cash commission of $21,000 was paid to a person dealing entirely at arm's length with the Company. In addition, a total of 400,000 non transferable broker warrants were issued. Each broker warrant entitles its holder to purchase one common share of Rocmec, at a price of 0.10 per common share, for a period of 24 months following the closing of the private placement.

The private placement is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and of the regulatory authorities having jurisdiction on the Company's securities. The securities issued in connection with the private placements are subject to certain resale restrictions which require that the securities not be traded for a period of four months plus one day.

Proceeds will be employed to further the development of the company's Rocmec 1 property located in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

Futhermore, Rocmec announces that a commission payable to Pinetree Resources Partnership pertaining to a financing (see press release dated January 20th, 2009) was not paid considering the non-arm's length relationship between Pinetree Resources Partnership and clients.
