Rocmec's Due Diligence Confirms Extension of Narrow High Grade Vien Systems on the Puma Property in Peru

Rocmec's Due Diligence Confirms Extension of Narrow High Grade Vien Systems on the Puma Property in Peru

POINTE-CLAIRE, QUEBEC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/18/07 -- Rocmec Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE: RMI)(FRANKFURT: D5O) is pleased to update its shareholders on the due diligence activities presently being conducted on the Puma property, located 80 km from the city of Arequipa, Peru. Rocmec's due diligence on the Puma property follows a purchase option agreement signed between the parties in November 2007 (see press release dated November 8th, 2007).

An important stage of the due diligence process has been completed by Systemes Geostat International Inc. "Geostat" of Blainville, Quebec, Canada. During an on-site visit, Mr. Maxime Dupere P. Geo sampled the trenched extensions of 2 narrow vein systems previously identified on the La Quinta concession, in addition to other veins identified on the Puma concession, located in close proximity to the small-scale traditional mine site. Mr. Maxime Dupere P. Geo of Geostat is an independent qualified person in accordance with NI 43-101 and is responsible for the information presented in this news release. Geostat is an international mining and exploration consulting firm which has contributed to numerous resource calculations, technical reviews and audits worldwide.

Systematic sampling of the mineralised structures (veins, hanging wall and footwall) produced close to 100 samples. All samples were sent for analysis to CIMM Peru S.A. Laboratory in Lima Peru for gold totals using Fire Assay 50 g with a minimum detection limit of 0.005 g/t gold and a maximum detection limit over 10 g/t gold. Every sample over 10 g/t gold was re-assayed with a gravimetric finish with a minimum detection limit of 0.10 g/t gold and a maximum detection limit of 1000 g/t gold.

The channel sampling of the trenches permitted the confirmation of the extension of two (2) of the known veins. The Principal vein was followed over a total length of 450m. The vein's sample best values are 22.94 g/t gold over a width of 12cm, 9.93 g/t gold over a width of 6cm for the footwall and 3.25 g/t gold over a width of 6 cm for the hanging wall for a total width of 24cm. The Ramal vein was followed over a total length of 300m. The vein's best values are 3.49 g/t gold over a width 20cm, 3.12 g/t gold over a width of 10cm for the footwall and 47.43 g/t gold over a width of 12 cm for the hanging wall. Complete results will be made public upon reception of the final report by Geostat.

For Rocmec, these results (small high-grade veins) lead us to believe that the mineralised structures are ideal for our patented thermal fragmentation process.

In light of these very promising results, Rocmec is redoubling its efforts to have a diamond drill on-site as soon as possible in order to verify the grades within the mountain where the small-scale traditional mine site is located and developed horizontally over one kilometre.

Tenders for the construction and on-site installation of the 100 tpd modular treatment plant has been received as well as a proposal for mine development from a mining contractor active in the Arequipa area.

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.

The company's growth strategy is to focus on the development of quality assets that will significantly enhance shareholder value.

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

The development and mining of narrow high-grade vein deposits with its exclusive thermal fragmentation process should enable the Company to demonstrate the economic plus-value of this technology. The acquisition, exploration and mining development at the recently acquired Rocmec 1 (Russian Kid) property subscribe to this objective.

Geostat reviewed all the technical data available from the Puma project. Geostat also conducted an on-site independent sampling of the trenches available from November 29th to December 3rd, 2007. These samples were sent to an independent laboratory in Peru.
