Rolling Rock Commences Drilling At the Domain Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 11, 2008) - Rolling Rock Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RLL) (the "Company") has commenced a 3,000 metre diamond drilling program on its 65% owned Domain Gold project in Northern Manitoba, Canada.

The approximately 20 hole program is a follow up to the successful drilling campaign completed in early 2008.

The initial targets will test the westerly extension of the B zone. The B zone is currently defined by drilling over a strike length of 700 metres and is reflected by strong electromagnetic and magnetic geophysical signatures which continue for another 350 metres in a northwesterly trend.

The westernmost holes drilled to date returned values of 4.61 grams per tonne over 15.25 metres (including 7.29 g/t over 9.0 metres or 9.96 g/t over 6.0 metres in drill hole RR-08-20) and 4.61 g/t gold over 18.05 metres (including 17.44 g/t over 2.65 metres in drill hole RR-08-23). Also 5.22 g/t over 9.05 metres (including 15.16 g/t over 2.7 metres in drill hole RR-08-21) all as reported by the Company on April 21, 2008.

Secondary targets will test the area known as Anomaly A. Anomaly A is a parallel structure located 100 metres to the north of the B zone. Previous work outlined a 1.8 km long coincidental magnetic and electromagnetic geophysical conductor. Drilling of a 100 metre segment of the trend by Canico in the late 1970's intersected anomalous gold values in all 4 holes. Reported drill results include 4.1 metres of 5.4 g/t gold and 1.32 metres of 12.6 g/t gold. Historic exploration data were collected before the introduction of National Instrument 43-101 and are presented for information purposes only. The Company has no way of verifying the results and the historical data should not be relied upon.

The Domain Property totals 14,000 hectares situated in the Gods Lake greenstone belt. It is located 15 kilometres east of the community of Oxford House and is accessible by winter road. Oxford House, with a population of approximately 2,500 people, has good infrastructure, including hydroelectric power and an all-season airport with daily flights to Winnipeg and Thompson.

The Company is the operator of the joint venture between New Dimension Resources and the Company and New Dimension will participate on a 35% basis in the cost of the program.

Monument Bay update:

Beacon Hill Consultants Ltd. was retained to carry out a Preliminary Assessment Mining Plan (scoping study) on the Company's 100% owned Monument Bay Project. Re-interpretation of the block models to incorporate the possibility of open-pit potential along with underground development of the deposit has taken a considerable amount of time. Beacon Hill recently completed its field examinations and the report along with an updated NI 43-101 compliant resource estimation is now anticipated for October 2008.

Rolling Rock is a junior gold exploration company focused on acquiring and developing projects throughout North America. Its largest shareholders include Kinross Gold Corporation and Zinifex Ltd. Rolling Rock has two gold exploration projects in Northern Manitoba: the Domain Property and the Monument Bay Project.
