Rockcliff Metals Corporation announced assay results from its recently completed Phase Two winter drill program on the Company's Bur Zinc Property located in central Manitoba. The Bur Zinc Property hosts the high-grade historical Bur Zinc Deposit and is strategically located 22 kilometres by road from Hudbay Minerals Inc.'s copper-zinc concentrator centered in the Snow Lake camp. Rockcliff is a major junior landholder in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt which is the largest Paleoproterozoic Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide district in the world hosting mines and deposits containing copper, zinc, gold and silver.

Rockcliffs Phase Two drill results intersected high-grade mineralization including:

• RBUR 015: yielded 8.5% ZnEq across 4.62 metres including 12.20% ZnEq across 2.84 metres

• RBUR 016: yielded 17.95% ZnEq across 5.70 metres including 24.51 % ZnEq across 3.83 metres

• RBUR 021: yielded 20.09% ZnEq across 2.66 metres including 37.13% ZnEq across 1.28 metres

• RBUR 022: yielded 15.03% ZnEq across 4.42 metres including 33.98% ZnEq across 1.65 metres

• RBUR 027: yielded 14.98% ZnEq across 1.71 metres including 20.74% ZnEq across 1.19 metres

Rockcliffs President and CEO Mr Ken Lapierre commented:'Our drilling confirmed significant extensions south of and above the high-grade historical Bur Zinc Deposit. The deposit is one of the highest-grade undeveloped zinc-copper rich VMS deposits in the belt and is open along strike and at depth. The Bur property is located within the known 8,000 metre long Bur VMS Horizon. Continuing to expand the existing limits of the deposit as well as defining new areas of mineralization within this favorable horizon will be the focus of our future exploration programs at Bur“
