Rockcliff Commences Drill Program at Tower VMS Property

Trading Symbol RCR: TSXV

TORONTO, Jan. 31, 2012 /CNW/ - Rockcliff Resources Inc. (TSXV: RCR) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced on its Tower VMS Property located in central Manitoba.  A minimum of 5,000m of drilling will test the T-3 anomaly, an 800m long priority one VMS target, and the Tower Copper Deposit, a continuous +600m long VMS zone associated with high grade copper and gold, zinc and silver.

Drilling has begun at the T-3 anomaly where Rockcliff's recently completed DPEM geophysical survey identified the priority one target, 800m west and one km north of the Tower Deposit.  It also identified areas within the anomaly with higher conductance.  The higher conductance areas are interpreted to be associated with thicker areas of massive sulphides.  Drilling has targeted these areas within the anomaly.

The second area to be tested is the Tower Copper Deposit where high grade copper rich mineralization has been outlined across a strike length of +600m and to a vertical depth of 300m.  The deposit remains open in all directions.  Rockcliff's previous drilling in 2010-2011 on the deposit defined a continuous VMS zone rich in copper, gold, zinc and silver.  Drilling intersected high grade copper mineralization including 8.2m grading 7.6% copper, 2.0g/t gold, 1.7% zinc and 35.4g/t silver (hole 8) and 4.9m grading 6.1% copper, 1.6g/t gold, 2.0% zinc and 35.9g/t silver (hole 21) as reported in the Press Releases dated March 1 and May 17, 2011. Drilling will focus along strike and at depth of the known mineralization.
