| ||ROK: #4-05|
Vancouver, British Columbia: Roca Mines Inc. ("the Company") announces that, further to its news release dated March 16, 2005, an underground infill diamond drill program has now commenced at the MAX Molybdenum Project.
The Company has conducted portal and underground rehabilitation work at the site and has installed a new ventilation system to facilitate entry to the deposit and working areas. Overall conditions underground are excellent and a complete 36" gauge rail network and other facilities underground are in good working order.
The infill drill program is intended to bring sampling in the measured resource of 260,000 tonnes grading 1.95% MoS2 (at a 1.00% MoS2 cutoff, see news release ROK #16-04 dated September 21, 2004) to approximately 20 metre spacing. The results of the drill program will provide the basis for the final design of a decline ramp and stopes for production planning. Composite samples from a crosscut through the deposit are also being prepared for metallurgical testing and process optimization. Mr. David Taylor, P.Eng. is the NI 43-101 Qualified Person supervising the infill drilling and sampling program. Assay results will be announced when they are received and compiled.
