Rockcliff Commences ZTEM Airborne Survey on Snow Lake VMS Project

Trading Symbol RCR: TSXV

SUDBURY, ON, Nov. 2 /CNW/ - Rockcliff Resources Inc. ("Rockcliff "or the "Company") (RCR: Tier 1 TSX-V) is pleased to announce that Geotech Ltd. ("Geotech") of Aurora, Ontario has commenced a 3,000 line kilometre airborne survey on the Company's Snow Lake VMS Project located in central Manitoba. The ZTEM survey will focus on Rockcliff's 100% owned Squall and Tramping Properties. Both properties are located approximately 6 km north and south of HudBay's recently discovered (2007), buried Lalor Deposit where recent deep drilling intersected a new gold/copper zone grading 34.5 m of 5.33% copper and 13.35 g/t gold. The survey will also cover Rockcliff's five near surface copper-rich deposits and additional areas with VMS potential. The survey has the capability of locating conductive bodies down to depths of over a kilometre. All VMS mines in the camp and Rockcliff's Snow Lake project are associated with juvenile rocks of the Flin Flon greenstone belt. The belt is one of the most prolific VMS belts and the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS district in the world.

The purpose of the survey will be to integrate Rockcliff's existing VTEM database (13,000 line km) on the project with Geotech's state of the art ZTEM geophysical technology. The combined surveys will allow for complete geophysical coverage and locate conductors buried from near surface to depths in excess of a kilometre. All conductors identified in the survey will be prioritized based on their conductivity, resistivity and proximity to juvenile arc rocks.

The survey will utilize Geotech's ZTEM or Z-Axis Tipper Electromagnetic system, an innovative airborne EM system which uses the natural or passive fields of the Earth as the source of transmitted energy. Key features of the technology include:

    
    -  Superior Exploration Depth - Over 1500 metres in the Athabasca Basin.
    -  Low Frequency for penetration through conductive cover.
    -  High Spatial Resolution - 8 to 10 metres.
    -  Excellent resistivity discrimination and detection of weak anomalies
       due to the nature of the natural EM fields.
    -  Measures the in-phase component - critical for the exploration of
       massive sulphides.
    -  A highly sensitive magnetometer for mapping geological structure and
       lithology.
