Rocmec Signs a Milling Contract with Richmont Mines

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 20, 2006) - Rocmec Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMI) is pleased to announce that it has signed a milling contract with Richmont Mines for the processing of several thousands of tonnes at Camflo mill located in the Abitibi region of Quebec. Approximately 40,000 tonnes from the bulk sampling programme currently underway at the company's Rocmec1 (Russian Kid) gold property will be processed over the next 12 months.

The contract will enable Rocmec to generate revenues on a regular basis. The first 7,500 tonnes are scheduled to be processed during the last weeks of November 2006. The high-grade ore extracted by way of thermal fragmentation will be stockpiled on site or sent to a refiner, whereas the ore produced from drift development and long-hole or shrinkage work sites will be processed in quantities of 10,000 tonnes at Richmont's Camflo mill.

Rocmec's growth strategy is to focus on the development of quality assets that will significantly enhance shareholder value. Exploitation of narrow high-grade precious metal quartz veins with its exclusive thermal fragmentation process coupled with conventional mining methods will lead the Company in becoming a mid-size gold producer. The acquisition, development and future exploitation activities at the recently acquired Rocmec I (Russian Kid) property are an excellent example of this strategy.

Rocmec Mining Corporation Inc. is a Canadian junior exploration company actively involved in the acquisition, exploration and development of precious metal projects. The Company's exclusive thermal fragmentation process combined with its growth strategy place it as the partner of choice for the development of narrow high-grade precious metal quartz vein properties. The Company is listed on the TSX-Venture exchange and trades under the symbol: RMI
