Rockcliff Identifies Significant VTEM-VMS Geophysical Anomalies at Tower, Dickstone Copper and Dickstone North Properties

Trading Symbol RCR: TSXV

TORONTO, May 11 /CNW Telbec/ - Rockcliff Resources Inc. (RCR: TSXV) is pleased to announce that a recently completed 1700 line kilometre airborne VTEM survey on its Snow Lake Project has successfully identified significant geophysical anomalies worthy of follow-up exploration.  The anomalies are interpreted to be VMS hosted targets and were identified at the Tower, Dickstone Copper and Dickstone North properties.  Geological ground proofing followed by surface gridding and ground geophysics will determine the priority sequence for future drill target evaluation. The Snow Lake Project is centered within the prolific Flin Flon greenstone belt, one of the most prolific VMS districts and the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS district in the world.  All VMS mines in the Flin Flon and Snow Lake camps are hosted in juvenile arc rocks.

At the Tower property, six geophysical anomalies were identified in the survey.  One of the anomalies corresponded to the high grade copper Tower VMS Deposit. All six anomalies are associated with a 12 km long geological trend now interpreted as a potential "VMS-rich corridor".  The VMS anomalies range from 400m to 1500m long and are located along the edge or centered on magnetic highs.  Rockcliff is earning a 70% interest in the Tower property from Pure Nickel Inc. (NIC: TSE).

At the Dickstone Copper property, three geophysical anomalies were identified in the survey.  One of the anomalies corresponded to the former producing Dickstone copper-zinc mine. All three anomalies are associated with the favourable "mine trend geology" (juvenile arc rocks) which strikes across the property for a distance of seven km.  The VMS anomalies range from 200 to 300m long and are located along the edge or centered on magnetic highs.  Rockcliff is earning a 100% interest from Xstrata Copper Canada, a division of Xstrata Canada Corporation (Xstrata).

At the Dickstone North property, two geophysical anomalies were identified in the survey.  Both anomalies are associated with juvenile arc rocks.  The VMS anomalies range from 200 to 400m long.  One anomaly is located along the edge of a magnetic high while the other anomaly is located on a magnetic high.  Rockcliff owns 100% of the Dickstone North Property.   The property lies immediately north of the Dickstone copper-zinc mine.

The airborne VTEM survey utilized Geotech's versatile time-domain electromagnetic (VTEM) and high sensitivity, cesium vapour magnetometer systems over the properties.  The VTEM system has excellent depth penetration and high spatial resolution capabilities along with superior resistivity discrimination for detection of weaker anomalies.
