Rolling Rock Extends Burn Lake Zone

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 9, 2006) - Rolling Rock Resources Corporation (TSX VENTURE:RLL) has received the remaining assay results from its 26 diamond drill hole summer program at the Monument Bay Property in northern Manitoba. The Company is pleased to announce further significant assays from within the newly discovered Burn Lake Zone. A total of 11 holes were drilled into this zone that is now traceable for over 700 m and is open along strike and appears to join the "136C" zone eastward but is open-ended westward.

The second drill has now been mobilized to the Monument Bay camp for the 10,000+ m winter drill program. This expansion and exploration drill program is set to commence in January 2007 and will include infill and down plunge drilling along the main zone with further testing of the Burn Lake Zone.

A summary of recent significant results follows:

(i)Partial results for TL-06-331 were announced on September 25, 2006.

Four more exploration holes, TL-06-334 to TL-06-337, were drilled 6 km east of the 136 Zone. These holes tested the east and west lateral continuity of a highly altered and mineralized zone that was encountered earlier by TL-06-321 and TL-06-322. The holes confirmed geological continuity of the zone however no significant assays were reported.

The Company has retained Mr. Gary Hawthorne, P.Eng. to conduct metallurgical testing on the Monument Bay deposit. The tests are designed to evaluate which mining and/or milling/flotation methods would be best suited for future development of the deposit along with recovery rates. Results of these reports will be released when received by the Company, possibly in early 2007.

John Neilson, an independent mining engineer who has worked with Lundin Mining, Newmont Mining, Placer Dome, and Ivanhoe, has been contracted to remodel the existing Monument Bay deposit for Rolling Rock Resources. Mr. Neilson will also participate in 3D modeling, recalculation of the Monument Bay 700,000+ ounce deposit.


1. Drill intercept lengths only are reported. It is estimated that true widths will be less than the reported intercept lengths.

2. A quality Assurance/Quality Control program is part of the drilling program on the Monument Bay Project. This program includes chain of custody protocol as well as systematic submittals of standards, duplicates and blank samples into the flow of samples produced by the drilling.

3. A description of the geology, sampling procedures, and the Company's laboratory Quality Assurance/Quality Control procedures are as described in the Company's National Instrument 43-101 Technical Report filed on July 7, 2006. This report is available at

4. The samples are sent to TSL Laboratories for assay.

5. The Qualified Person for this project and the data in this news release is J.T. Shearer, M.Sc., P.Geo.
