Rocmec Files NI 43-101 Resource Estimate Report on its Rocmec 1 Property, Focus on Adding Quality Resources

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - April 2, 2007) - ROCMEC MINING INC. (the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:RMI) is pleased to announce that the Company has filed the National Instrument ("NI") 43-101 Technical Report on its Rocmec 1 (Russian Kid) Property located 35 km from 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 report, dated 19 March 2007, was prepared by Systemes Geostat International Inc. of Blainville, Quebec, Canada ("SGII") for the Company for the purpose of providing technical data relating to the quantified mineral resources compliant with NI 43-101 standards of disclosure. The report is available on

The SGII report was prepared by Mr. Claude Duplessis, P. Eng., a qualified person, and based on site visits; an overview of the mineralized Archean vein system; inspection of the Company's drilling programs; examination of core samples, veins and some underground work being done.

SGII's report highlights that the upside potential of the inferred mineral resources located on the property is important. The transfer of some of the inferred mineral resources into indicated or measured mineral resources would allow them to participate into future mineral reserve estimation and would dramatically improve the economics of the project. The recommended work program is estimated to cost C$ 1.77 million. The Company has already spent C$ 5.2 million on the on-going underground and surface drilling program, which forms the bulk of the work program that commenced in first quarter of 2006. The Company is planning an extensive drill program later in 2007 to test the down-dip extensions of all the mineralized zones to the -400 m vertical depth, and to outline higher quality gold resources more in-line with other gold systems in the Gold Mining Camps of the region.

Mr. Jean Lafleur, P. Geo., Director and Technical Advisor comments "SGII's report is a just the start...the Company plans additional drilling in the near term at Rocmec 1. SGII's conclusion that the property merits additional work shows that the property has potential for many years of gold production, in addition to the significant opportunity to expand the resources based on the kilometric-long gold corridor on the property confirms our high expectations on the gold potential, and the positive impact this will have on the market value of Rocmec ".

The gold mineralization at the Rocmec 1 (Russian Kid) Property is linked to east-northeast, centimetric and metric wide quartz veins, dipping moderately to steeply to the south, within a kilometric long by 600 meter 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 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 meters.

The best known vein system is termed the McDowell Zone that may include three different vein sets, and has been recognized over a 1,660 meter long strike length, to a 317 meter depth, carrying an average of 6.07 g/t gold capped at 45 g/t over a 0.82 meter horizontal width which is within optimal width for the thermal fragmentation method.
