Toronto, ON – November 1, 2017 – Rockcliff Metals Corporation (“Rockcliff“ or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCLF) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A2H60G) is pleased to announce it has initiated an updated National Instrument (NI) 43-101 Resource estimate at the Talbot Copper Property. The resource will be completed by SRK Consulting. Rockcliff will also initiate a DPEM geophysical survey where previous geophysics outlined the West Talbot Deep Conductive Plate, a large untested anomaly strengthening below and west of the Talbot Copper Deposit (see Figure 1). The Talbot Copper Property is part of the Company’s Manitoba property portfolio centered on the Snow Lake Mining Camp within the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake Greenstone Belt.
Rockcliff President and CEO commented, “We are excited about updating the present resource on the Talbot Copper Deposit after our phase 2 drill program identified additional areas of high grade enrichment in the hanging wall and along strike of the present resource. The additional DPEM geophysical survey will help us vector in on the exact up dip location of the West Talbot Deep Conductive Plate. The Talbot Copper Deposit was originally identified as a smaller geophysical conductive plate so any new larger plates identified in this area are viewed as high priority targets. Both the resource update and geophysical survey are anticipated to be completed prior to the end of the year and data will be released when results are available. Planned drilling in 2018 will aid our advancement of the Talbot Copper Property and further define the potential size of the Talbot Copper Deposit.”
