Rocmec Signs a Major Development Contract for the Rocmec 1 Property

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 7, 2007) - Rocmec Mining inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMI)(FSE:D5O) is pleased to announce that it has signed a major development contract for the Rocmec 1 property with Dumas Contracting Inc.(Dumas) from Timmins, Ontario.

The contract stipulates that a minimum of 190 metres of drifting per month will be driven with state of the art equipment. Dumas has committed to conduct the drifting by first extracting the mineralised structure, reducing dilution to the strict minimum, thereafter extracting the waste rock. Costs will be paid on a per metre basis. Furthermore, Dumas has also been mandated to drill the pilot holes with an ITH (in the hole) drill. Once again, costs will be paid on a per metre basis. Pilot holes are the last step in preparatory work before thermal fragmentation.

With this new contract Rocmec will accelerate its development within known zones and also increase its geological understanding of other lesser known vein structures that were recently intercepted by our ongoing underground diamond drilling programme. Dumas is very familiar with mine development both in Quebec and Ontario, they employ over 1,000 employees. Onsite mobilization of the mining equipment for the new contract should be completed within the coming weeks.

About Rocmec 1 property

The Rocmec 1 property includes 11 claims totaling an area equivalent to approximately 84 hectares and is located in the 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; 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.
