Rochester Provides Update on Exploration and Development

Vancouver, Canada - October 29, 2007, Rochester Resources Ltd. (TSXV:
RCT; OTCBB: RCTFF and Frankfurt: R5I): Dr. Alfredo Parra, President, is
pleased to report on a successful year to date and to provide a preview
of Rochester's work plans for the remainder of this year and 2008.
Rochester has assembled an attractive portfolio of high grade
gold-silver properties located in the state of Nayarit, Mexico, in the
Sierra Madre Occidental range. This is the largest epithermal precious
metal region in the world, hosting a majority of Mexico's large tonnage
gold and silver deposits.

This has been a very exciting year to date for Rochester with several
major milestones achieved. In January, we commenced milling operations
at the Florida triple vein system; followed by drift development
commencing at the Tajos Cuates vein system; in March, Rochester
acquired the Santa Fe exploration property; and currently are
initiating a very aggressive exploration and development program at all
three areas, Florida, Tajos Cuates, and Santa Fe.

We feel we can create significant shareholder value by simultaneously
executing on, and developing the following three concurrent activities:

1. Mill production - This will generate significant cash flow and help
fund our ongoing exploration and development with minimum share

2. Drift development - This will provide bulk sample-like information
and assist in generating a NI43-101 compliant reserve report while at
the same time providing feed for the mill; and,

3. Exploration - 7000 metre Phase 1 Diamond drill program to be
initiated immediately.

The recently completed $4 million financing will enable the Company to
accelerate all three stories. On the production front, studies are
underway to investigate the feasibility of a mill expansion to 300
tonnes/day. We will also be able to complete another 2000 meters of
drift development spread over all three projects - Florida, Tajos
Cuates, and Santa Fe. In addition, we are going to implement an
aggressive drill program of 7000 metres that will determine the next
steps for mine development and production levels.

Florida Vein System

We will be implementing a 2000 metre Diamond drill program and a 600
metre drift development program at our Florida North project to
identify the continuation of the Florida triple vein system. The
mineralization at Florida North has been traced at surface for
approximately 1.5km to the N-NW of the Florida mine. We feel this will
supplement the current mill with feed and increase the mine life of
Florida significantly.

Tajos Cuates Vein System

Over the past six months we have been conducting drift development at
our Tajos Cuates vein system 800 meters southwest of Florida. We have
discovered an additional two off-shoot veins at this system and like
Florida North, the vein system has been traced at surface for
approximately 1.5 kilometers. There are significantly higher reported
grades of silver at Tajos Cuates versus Florida. We will be
implementing a 2000 metre Diamond drill program and a 600 metre drift
development program over the coming months.

Santa Fe Property

Earlier this year our Phase 1 exploration program combined with road
development successfully unveiled a very large vein system at surface
called "Clavellinos". Santa Fe is our highest priority exploration
target; we will be implementing a 3000 metre Diamond drill program and
an 800 metre drift development program at Clavellinos and several other
parallel vein systems. We believe there is significant potential to
discover a stand-alone deposit capable of supporting its own mill. In
addition, we have identified 26 other vein systems across the Santa Fe
property with several vein systems striking greater than 4 kilometers
traced along surface. Of note, the "Clavellinos" vein system, at its
north end, has a 40 meter wide mineralized alteration zone with 3
sub-parallel high-grade epithermal veins emplaced within, including a
horizon potentially up to 700 meters (twice the horizon found at the
Florida Mine). 4+ kilometers away at the south end, the Clavellinos
vein system has variable widths between 5 meters and 8 meters traced at

Mill Production

We are currently in production, processing 200 tonnes/day, and as of
the end of August 2007, we are generating positive cash flow from
operations. Studies are underway to investigate increasing production
up to 300 tonnes/day by early 2008. We began the year with 140
employees and currently have over 200 full-time employees. It is
important to note that the anticipated positive cash flow generated
from milling activities will allow the Company to fund ongoing
exploration and development activities significantly beyond those
stated above without further share dilution.

The Company will have a very good idea in the next 12 months as to what
the size and scope of the project will look like and where we'll be
headed due to the aggressive program that we are initiating now.
Moving forward, we will provide you, the shareholders', with regular
updates from our Production, Development, and Exploration activities.
