Rocmec's Surface Drill Programme Intercepts an Anomalous Mineralised Structure at Depth

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2006) - Rocmec Mining inc. (TSX VENTURE:RMI) is pleased to announce to its shareholders that the first of four diamond drill holes from its 8000' surface drilling program currently underway on the Rocmec 1 (Russian Kid) gold property, has intercepted several mineralized structures ranging from 1.16 to 34.75 meters. Moreover, in addition to intercepting at depth the previously known structures close to surface (McDowell, Talus and Shaft) a new mineralized structure, now known as Boucher, located at a depth of 400 meters (1300') with an apparent thickness of 34.75 meters was intercepted. The structures contain quartz veins with the presence of pyrite, characterizing the zones in an evident manner. Within the new Boucher structure, several visible sub-millimeter to millimeter size gold specks were observed from within the diamond drill core that identifies the new structure.

Mr. Claude Duplessis, President of Geostat Systems International Inc. (Geostat) and qualified person under NI43-101 visited the site as per his mandate to prepare a new NI43-101 compliant resource calculation. Based on observations made on site and given its width, Mr. Duplessis confirms the anomalous nature of the new mineralized structure.

Considering the preparation and assay method recommended by Geostat, a short delay for assay results it to be expected, however, they should be received within the coming days. Given the presence of visible gold, the following preparation and assay method was chosen: the BQ core sample was sawed in half, the first half was bagged, sealed and sent to the laboratory whereas the second was set aside as proof. The mineralized samples weigh between 700 to 900 grams each. At the Lab-Expert laboratory located in Rouyn-Noranda Quebec, the totality of the sample was crushed at 90% passing 10 mesh. Then the samples were divided into three equal parts ranging from between 230 to 300 grams, which were separately pulverized at 90% passing 200 mesh, following which, 29.166 grams of each pulp was assayed by way of fire assay with gravimetric finish. Furthermore, one pulp out of three was sent to Bourlamaque, an independent laboratory located in Val-d'Or Quebec, to validate the results obtained from the first laboratory.

At first glance, the results should have a positive impact on the previous resource calculation that was conducted in the 1980's by the ABBDL-TECSULT Group. The new resource calculation that will include the extensions at depth of the previously known structures close to surface and the new zone will be conducted by Geostat. Furthermore, all current and historical surface and underground drill holes will also serve to produce the new resource calculation. The new resource calculation should be available by the first quarter of 2007.

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 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
