Rocmec Mining Inc.: Drill Campaign Continues Intersecting the Boucher Gold Zone

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2007) - ROCMEC MINING INC. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: RMI) (FRANKFURT:D5O) is pleased to inform its shareholders on the ongoing diamond drill campaign currently underway at its Rocmec 1 Gold Property, located in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.

For the fourth time, diamond drilling has intersected the mineralized structure known as the Boucher Gold Zone between surface and -400 m. This fourth diamond drill hole has enabled Rocmec to better understand the orientation of the Boucher Gold Zone considering that it has been intersected in at least 3 separate holes on 3 different sections. The Boucher Gold Zone differs from the other known structures on the property, having a NE-SW orientation compared to an E-W orientation for the other known structures. This fourth intersection clearly identifies a very significant mineralized structure and confirms the dip and continuity of the Boucher Gold Zone. Highlights to date from the Boucher Gold Zone include:

- The fourth intercept in RS-04-07 intersected 7.8 m (core length) with assays between 0.38 g/t and 0.55 g/t gold;

- The third intercept in RS-03-07 intersected 14.9 m with assays between 0.21 g/t and 1.2 g/t gold;

- The second intercept in RS-02-07, located 140 m from the first diamond drill hole, intersected between 2.78 g/t and 619.6 g/t gold over 2.4 m;

- The first intercept in RS-01-06 intersected, at a depth of 400 m, 33.30 m with assays between 0.03 g/t and 71.01 g/t gold.

"Results so far are very encouraging considering the number of quartz veins located within the mineralized structure and the presence of significant quantities of gold in different areas. One must keep in mind the philosophy behind exploration activities related to narrow-vein ore bodies, and that is drill for structure and drift for grade" states Donald Brisebois, President and CEO.

The diamond drill campaign has moved underground on Level 90 in the western section of the mine. Some 9 - 300 m holes over three sections covering a distance of 500 m will be drilled at the beginning of 2008. Based on the results of the drill campaign, management will decide whether to conduct drift development towards the Boucher Gold Zone from either Level 90 or Level 130. Furthermore, aided by its thermal fragmentation process, management continues evaluating the grades on known and developed veins from Levels 90-110 and 130.

The information in this news release has been prepared and reviewed by Mr. Jean Lafleur, P. Geo., Director and Technical Advisor to Rocmec, the Company's Qualified Person under NI 43-101.
