Rockcliff Resources Continues to Intersect High Grade Copper-Gold at Tower Zone in Manitoba

Rockcliff Resources Inc. (RCR: TSXV) has announced that preliminary drilling on the Tower Copper-Gold Property located in central Manitoba has continued to intersect high grade copper-gold results.

The Tower Zone remains open in all directions and has been intersected by widely spaced (100-200m drill centers) drill holes over a strike length of 800m and to a vertical depth of almost 500m.

High grade results from holes 4 and 5 are highlighted below.

  • 7.0% copper, 2.0g/t gold, 1.3% zinc and 32.2g/t silver across 2.65m including
    11.5% copper, 2.7g/t gold, 2.0% zinc and 49.7 silver across 1.00m (hole 4);
  • 3.3% copper, 0.3g/t gold, 0.8% zinc and 17.6g/t silver across 7.45m including
    9.8% copper, 0.9g/t gold, 2.2% zinc and 51.5g/t silver across 2.4m (hole 5);

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO of Rockcliff commented, "Significant massive sulphide widths and high grade copper-gold mineralization continue to be intersected at the Tower Zone which is strategically located within 400m of a major highway and power line. Our geophysical bore hole surveys have clearly identified a significant untested area of high conductance representing massive sulphides along strike and at depth to the existing high grade copper-gold drill intercepts."

To earn a 70% interest in the property, Rockcliff must pay $150,000 in incremental payments to Pure Nickel Inc. (NIC: TSE) over four years and will be required to incur aggregate exploration expenditures totalling $4,000,000 over four years; $2,000,000 over two years to earn a 50% working interest and a further $2,000,000 to earn a further 20% working interest.

Ken Lapierre, P.Geo., President & CEO of Rockcliff Resources Inc., a Qualified Person under the definition of National Instrument 43-101, is responsible for the technical information in this press release and has reviewed all information in this news release. He is responsible for verification and quality assurance of Rockcliff's exploration data and analytical results. Samples of half core are packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff's field office to TSL Laboratories (TSL), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. TSL is a Canadian assay laboratory and is accredited under ISO/IEC 17025.   Each bagged core sample is dried, crushed to 70% passing 10 mesh and a 250g pulp is pulverized to 95% passing 150 mesh for assaying. A 0.5g cut is taken from each pulp for base metal analyses and leached in a multi acid (total) digestion and then analyzed for copper, lead, zinc and silver by atomic absorption. Gold concentrations are determined by fire assay using a 30g charge followed by an atomic absorption finish. Samples greater than upper detection limit (3000 ppb) are reanalyzed using fire assay gravimetric using a 1 AT charge. Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the sample stream to ensure lab integrity.
