Rocmec Intercepts Boucher Vein and Cuts 132.21 g/t Over 51 cm

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - Rocmec Mining inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to announce that it has once again intercepted the mineralised Boucher structure (drill hole RU-03-08), this time however, some 200 metres west of previous drill holes (

It is the eighth time that Rocmec intercepts the structure from below surface at different elevations ranging from 75 metres to 430 metres. The structure is open in both the eastern and western extensions and at depth and the grades encountered are very favourable for Rocmec's thermal fragmentation mining method. Furthermore, the data gathered to date indicates that the mineralised structure is getting increasingly closer to the work areas currently being developed by Rocmec's employees. Underground diamond drilling from the 90 metre level is ongoing and will continue for some time.

"While we are satisfied with the development of the mine up to now, current metal prices and geological potential of the Boucher structure bring a great deal of optimism for subsequent events at the site" stated Mr. Donald Brisebois, President & CEO.

About Rocmec 1 property

The Rocmec 1 property includes 11 claims totaling 84 hectares and is located in Dasserat Township, some 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 gold mineralization at the Rocmec 1 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. The veins are part of diverging and 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 metres.

A National Instrument 43-101 compliant report, providing technical data relating to the quantified mineral resources dated March 19, 2007, prepared by Systemes Geostat International Inc. of Blainville, (Quebec) Canada is available on
