ROCMEC ENTERS INTO A JOINT-VENTURE OPTION AGREEMENT FOR ITS ROCMEC 1 PROPERTY
Vaudreuil-Dorion, Qu�bec, September 30th, 2009 - Rocmec Mining Inc. (the "Company") (TSX-V: RMI) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an option agreement with a group of Quebec based investors enabling them to acquire a 49% interest of its Rocmec 1 gold property for an amount of $6,000,000 CAN payable in cash. The option shall be structured as a participating loan with the right to convert the loan into a 49% equity ownership in the property. The agreement stipulates that Rocmec will prepare a pre-feasibility study, once completed; the investors will have 180 days following reception of the report to exercise their option.
In order to complete the pre-feasibility report and new resource calculation, Rocmec will proceed with a diamond drill campaign on its Rocmec 1 gold property located in Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.
This diamond drill campaign is a continuation of the very successful diamond drill programme conducted during 2008 and will focus on targeting the McDowell, Talus and Boucher structures at depth. SGS G�ostat lt�e of Blainville (Quebec) has been mandated to plan the diamond drill programme and also prepare a pre-feasibility study that will include a new mineral resource calculation. Management expects to receive the reports before year-end.
The Rocmec 1 Property
The Rocmec 1 property is located in the Dasserat Township, some 36 km west of Rouyn-Noranda (Quebec) in the Abitibi region of Quebec, in close proximity to two World-Class Mining Camps, the Rouyn-Noranda Copper Gold Camp to the SE in Quebec, and the Kirkland Lake / Larder Lake Gold Camp to the SW in Ontario.
The gold mineralization at the Rocmec 1 property is linked to E-NE, centimetric and metric wide quartz veins within a kilometric long by 600 m wide gabbro to granodiorite intrusive host. There are at least six major vein systems identified on the property; however, recent underground work by the Company has confirmed that several veins are likely part of the same system, simply offset by north trending faults. The veins are part of diverging / converging or an anastomosing fracture system than includes shearing, alteration (silica, chlorite, sericite, epidote and carbonate) and 2 to 10% disseminated and vein-type pyrite that can attain overall widths in excess of 30 m.
A technical report (dated March 19, 2007), compliant with National Instrument (NI) 43-101 standards of disclosure, was prepared by Syst�mes G�ostat International Inc. of Blainville (Quebec) identified mineral resources of 521,800 tonnes @ 5.15 g/t gold (86,550 ounces of gold) in the Measured and Indicated Resources category. There is an additional 2,250,000 tonnes @ 6.32 g/t gold (456,900 ounces of gold) in the Inferred Resources category.
