Rocmec Intercepts 16.33 g/t on the Boucher Structure at Rocmec 1

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2010) - Rocmec Mining inc. (the « company ») (TSX VENTURE:RMI) (FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to announce preliminary diamond drill results from its 2009 diamond drill campaign at its Rocmec 1 gold property, located in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

The analytical results received are from the second surface diamond drill hole RS-04-09 and RS-05-09 located respectively 6057mE and 2320mN (local grid) with azimuth at 325 degrees North and a 45 degree dip (local grid coordinates) and 6183mE and 2679mN with azimuth at 326.7 degrees North and a 545 degree dip. The objective of the drill hole was designed to intercept the Boucher zone located to the west of the property. Many mineralised structures were intercepted in the diamond drill hole. The samples from the mineralised quartz veins returned grades of 6.94 g/t Au over 0.6m and 5.63 g/t Au over 1.16m.

Hole RS-04-09

McDowell Structure:

A structure associated to the McDowell structure was intercepted from 366.92m to 368.30m (core length) in a strongly altered (biotite-calcite-chlorite) diorite. The mineralized interval sonsists of two (2) medium to coarse grained centimetric pyrite bands following the foliation. Encountered grades were: 6.94 g/t Au over 0.6m including 6.22 g/t Au over 0.35m and 7.95g/t Au over 0.25m.

Boucher Structure

The Boucher structure was intersected from 497.86m to 498.7.m (core length) in a shear zone crosscutting a strongly altered andesite (chlorite-sericite). Mineralization consists of fine pyrite at the contact of a pinkish fractured quartz-calcite vein (0.70m). Encountered grades were: 0.79 g/t Au over 0.54m and 0.13 g/t Au over 0.30m.

Hole RS-05-09

Shaft Structure

A mineralized structure was intersected and interpreted as the Shaft structure from 27.43m to 27.68m (core length) in a moderately altered diorite (chlorite-calcite). The mineralized interval consists of a deformed quartz-calcite vein (0.17m) with milimetric chlorite bands following foliation. Mineralization consists of coarse grained pyrite bands in the footwall. Encountered grades were 1.17g/t Au over 0.57m including 2.14 g/t Au over 0.25m and 0.42g/t Au over 0.32m.

Structure Boucher

The Boucher structure was intersected from 212.80m to 213.66m (core length) in a strongly altered and sheared diorite. The mineralized interval consists of a fractured and deformed pinkish quartz vein that has undergone boudinage. Mineralization consists of fine pyrite (3-5%) and chalcopyrite (traces) following foliation associated to the wall rock contacts. Encountered grades were : 5.63 g/t Au over 1.16m including 16.33 g/t Au over 0.38m and 0.61 g/t Au over 0.36m.

Quality control

The diamond drill campaign was conducted under the supervision of Maxime Dupéré geo. from SGS Canada Inc., a qualified person under the guidelines of National Instrument 43-101. Maxime Dupéré geo. Is the qualified person responsible for the technical information in this press release. The NQ size core samples were sawed in half, one half kept as reference and the other half sent for analysis (samples measuring less than 22cm were photographed before being completely sampled). The samples were analysed at the SGS Lakefield laboratory, located in Lakefield, Ontario following the 30g Fire Assay metallic screen method. The SGS Lakefield analytical lab follows strict protocols and procedures including the systematic insertion of reference materials, re-assay checks and blanks. The mentioned grades are average grades. The mentioned lengths correspond to the measured core lengths.
