Drift Development Results at Tajos Cuates Confirm Extension of
High Grade Gold/Silver Vein System

Vancouver, Canada - Rochester Resources Ltd. (TSXV: RCT; OTCBB: RCTFF
and Frankfurt: R5I): Dr. Alfredo Parra, President, is pleased to advise
that the Company has completed a 95 metre drift at level 976 which
interesected the extension of the Tajos Cuates vein system to the
northwest of the existing drift development workings. This appears to
be part of the same vein system that from surface sampling and old
workings is believed to extend for a further 1.5 kilometers to the
northwest. A vertical raise of 8 meters was completed at the
intersection of the Tajos Cuates vein which confirmed the existence of
two additional parallel high grade gold/silver veins. These veins
pinch and swell and are between two and eight metres apart from one
another. Both parallel veins are open vertically and open along

Samples were collected from the two newly discovered veins at six
intervals along the raise. Many of the intervals sampled produced very
high grades. Examples include:

The total average from this eight metre raise was 3.25 grams/ton of
gold and 396 grams/ton of silver. (See Table 1 and Figure 1)

Surface work has also identified two new mineralized vein systems in
the Tajos Cuates area, called Tomas and El Crudo. Preliminary surface
channel sampling has returned widths of 2.10 metres grading 3.7 g/t
gold and 137 g/t silver from Tomas, and 0.70 metres grading 4.9 g/t
gold and 106 g/t silver from El Crudo.

"These results support our decision to embark on an aggressive
exploration and development program at Tajos Cuates which we are
hopeful will establish a more broadly based mining complex, with the
capacity to increase gold and silver production well above existing
levels." commented Dr. Alfredo Parra, President.

As is typical with epithermal vein systems, grades and width vary
throughout the Tajos Cuates structure. The Tajos Cuates vein system is
located 1 kilometre southwest of the Florida Mine site and is a primary
target in the near term to outline additional potential ore sources for
the existing milling operation. The vein system is a robust low
sulphidation epithermal vein which has been traced on surface over 1.8
kilometres. Known workings and one historical drill intercept has
defined a vertical horizon of minimally 200 metres. The mineralization
is silver-rich compared to the Florida triple vein system -- a 1.70
metre wide sample collected by Victor Jaramillo P.Geo. from the Chalata
Adit assayed 2.7 g/t gold and 1300 g/t silver. Three drill holes
completed in 2006 provided confirmation that the mineralized vein
structure continues to depth and established a base of the mineralized
horizon near the 900 metre level. Drill hole No. 800-7-04 intersected
2.42 metres (estimated true width 1.5 metres) of mineralization which
assayed 4.9 grams/tonne of gold and 310 grams/tonne of silver at the
915 metre elevation.

Recent work has extended road access to Tajos Cuates, and initial
underground rehabilitation work is underway to allow exploration and
bulk sampling of the vein system in detail. The multiple vein systems
at Tajos Cuates are the primary target for expansion of our mining

All assays quoted were carried out by the Durango, Mexico, branch of
SGS Laboratories, a certified and independent laboratory. The
exploration program is under the direction of Hector Chavez, a Mexican
professional geologist who has extensive experience in Mexican
epithermal deposits, and supervised by Dr. Alfredo Parra, who is a QP
as defined in NI 43-101.
