About Rocmec

Rocmec Mining Inc. is a Canadian junior exploration company actively involved in the acquisition, exploration and development of precious metal projects. The Company's exclusive thermal fragmentation process combined with its growth strategy place it as the partner of choice for the development of narrow high-grade precious metal quartz vein properties. The Company is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange and trades under the symbol: RMI.

Rocmec's growth strategy is to focus on the development of quality assets that will significantly enhance shareholder value. Exploitation of narrow high-grade precious metal quartz veins with its exclusive thermal fragmentation process coupled with conventional mining methods will lead the Company in becoming a mid-size gold producer. The acquisition, development and future exploitation activities at the recently acquired Rocmec I (Russian Kid) property are an excellent example of this strategy.
