ROCA Update on Temporary Shutdown at MAX Mine

VANCOUVER, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - Roca Mines Inc. (TSX-V: ROK) ("the Company") announces that wall sloughing between the 830mL and 805mL has stabilized over the past three days.

An analysis of the event is ongoing and these results will be used to minimize the impact of such events in the future. Review of the ramp access near the stope has not indicated any potential stability problems in the manned-access and there is no impact to the ramp or other parts of the mine.

Crews have now re-entered the lower levels of the mine and have commenced dewatering. The Company continues to plan for production to begin again on September 2, 2010.
