ROCMEC UPDATES PROGRESS ON PERUVIAN ACQUISITION PROJECT

 

Pointe-Claire, Quebec, April 8th, 2008 – Rocmec Mining inc. (TSX-V Symbol: RMI - FSE Symbol: D5O) is pleased to update its shareholders on progress regarding its purchase option agreement (see press release dated November 8th, 2007) pertaining to the acquisition of six concessions that form the Puma mining property located in Peru. Numerous on-site activities are being conducted simultaneously and at the end of March the project crossed an important threshold as it was host to a visit by members of Rocmec’s management team and a representative of a financial group. The main goals of the visit were to conduct follow-up work on the current drill campaign, to allow the financial groups’ representative to conduct its due diligence and to analyse a third mineralised structure known as El Pollo.

 

The first hole of the drill campaign, RS-E1 has been completed. The hole was drilled horizontally over a length of 205 metres and intercepted the Ramal vein close to 100 metres underneath the samples previously taken at the summit of the mountain. The main vein was also intercepted and previously sampled at the summit. Sampling results will be made public upon reception from the laboratory.

 

Within the framework of raising funds to finance the project, a representative of a European financial group specialised in non-conventional financings accompanied Rocmec’s management team to conduct its due diligence on the property and legal ownership of the mining concessions. With their due diligence now completed they will submit an offering memorandum to the regulatory authorities of a European stock exchange.

 

Management also visited and analysed a third mineralised structure known as El Pollo. This vein is currently being mined by the site owners and is included in the mining concessions covered by Rocmec’s option agreement. The structure is accessible over a length of 30 metres on one level and 25 metres on another level; it has excellent continuity, dipping 50� towards the east. It is visible on the slope of the mountain stretching over 200 metres in height and 400 metres in length. Within the drift its width varies between 1 – 1.5 metres and contains significant quantities of hematite. Samples were taken every 5 metres from the drift ceiling and results will be made public upon reception from the laboratory.

 

About the Puma property

 

The Puma property contains 6 narrow vein gold concessions covering 1,700 hectares and located approximately 80 km from the city of Arequipa, Peru. One of the concessions is currently in operation using small-scale traditional mining methods, producing about 10 tonnes of very high grade ore daily. All the necessary mining services are readily available and distance between the city and the properties is well traveled by an access road that is used daily to transport ore and mining materials to and from the site. Rocmec plans on developing the project with a Canadian partner, RSW-Beroma, who has been travelling extensively in Peru for the past three years especially in the Arequipa area evaluating the best gold properties.

 

Rocmec Mining's growth strategy is focused on developing quality assets that will significantly enhance shareholder value by using the thermal fragmentation method throughout the Americas to extract narrow vein ore bodies. By utilising the thermal fragmentation method in combination with conventional mining methods, the company aims to become a mid-tier gold producer. In addition, by providing service agreements, the company intends to generate additional revenue and accelerate the spread of this unique technology.


 

 

“Thermal fragmentation - the way of the future for mining narrow high-grade veins”
