Rockcliff Purchases Near Surface Unmined High Grade Zinc Deposit

Toronto, ON – December 1, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) is pleased to announce the purchase of 100% interest in the MacBride zinc property located 45 kilometres north of Leaf Rapids, Manitoba. The MacBride property contains the historical high grade MacBride zinc deposit located within 6.0 kilometres long structural magnetic high corridor. The magnetic high corridor hosts several additional undrilled electromagnetic ("EM") airborne anomalies similar to the EM signature of the MacBride zinc deposit. The MacBride zinc deposit begins at surface and is being targeted for its open pit and underground potential. The MacBride zinc property is located approximately 60 kilometres from the significant, former producing open pit and underground Ruttan copper-zinc mine.

President & CEO of Rockcliff, Ken Lapierre commented, "With the present worldwide zinc shortage and the recent corresponding sharp rise in zinc prices, high grade near surface zinc assets like the MacBride zinc deposit are very rare particularly in a stable, safe, mining friendly jurisdiction. The high grade MacBride zinc deposit is underexplored and the mineralization remains open in all directions and has the potential to substantially grow in size with more drilling. Additionally, the likelihood of discovering additional high grade zinc-rich mineralization on the property elsewhere along the same magnetic corridor that hosts the MacBride zinc deposit is considered excellent."

The MacBride property includes 7 contiguous mining claims totalling 1,662 hectares and is located in central Manitoba. An historical report by Knobby Lake Mines Limited in 1977 outlined a resource for the MacBride zinc deposit. Rockcliff is treating the resource for the MacBride zinc deposit as a "historical estimate" under NI 43-101 and not as a current mineral resource.

Historical estimates of grade and tonnage given in this press release are viewed as reliable and relevant based on the information and methods used at the time. However, they were not prepared in compliance with resource definitions under NI 43-101 and must be considered only as historic resources. Neither Rockcliff nor its Qualified Persons have done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as a current mineral resource under current mineral resource or mineral reserve terminology and are not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource. The historic resource should not be relied upon. Additional work including surface geophysics, drilling and bore hole geophysics will need to be completed to upgrade the historical resource to current NI43-101 standards.

The MacBride zinc deposit, discovered in the 1970s has seen only very limited drilling and has not been subject to an extensive, systematic exploration program. The deposit is within the same Archean-aged metavolcanic rocks and interbedded meta-sediments that host the nearby former Ruttan zinc-copper mine. The MacBride zinc deposit coincides with a 1.8 kilometres long strongly conductive EM anomaly hosted within a long magnetic high corridor that is more than 6.0 kilometres long. The deposit has been drilled across a strike length of approximately 275 metres and the remaining 1.55 kilometres length of the EM anomaly remains undrilled. The deposit remains open along strike and at depth. Additional conductive EM anomalies along the magnetic corridor remain undrilled.

The MacBride zinc deposit mineralization consists of clusters of coarse grained pyrite in a matrix of pyrrhotite, sphalerite and blebs of chalcopyrite. The extensive recrystallization of the massive sulphides and incorporation of wall rock fragments in the deposit suggests sulphide remobilization. The gangue mineral assemblage is lightly disseminated with sulphides and consists of amphibole, biotite, chlorite, sericite and garnet.

Rockcliff purchased 100% of the MacBride zinc property which hosts the MacBride zinc deposit for $58,275 and a 2% net smelter royalty (NSR). Half of the NSR can be purchased at any time for $500,000 per 0.5% NSR. Rockcliff has the right of first refusal on the remaining NSR on the property.

Ken Lapierre P.Geo., President and CEO of Rockcliff, a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101, has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this press release.

Rockcliff Purchases High Grade Zinc and Gold Property in Manitoba

Toronto, ON – November 22, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) has agreed to purchase the Morgan Lake, Woosey Lake and Cook Lake properties (collectively called the Morgan property) in the Snow Lake mining camp from Copper Reef Mining Corporation ("Copper Reef") (CSE:CZC) (CSE:CZC.CN). The Morgan property hosts stratigraphic horizons similar to the prolific Chisel Lake Basin which contain a number of former zinc mines and is located within 3 kilometres from the now operating Lalor Mine owned by Hudbay Minerals. The Morgan property includes a high grade historic zinc-rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide deposit and a high grade gold-rich quartz vein system including a high grade historic zinc-rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposit. The Morgan property forms part of Rockcliff's Snow Lake Project which hosts several high grade VMS deposits and a former historical gold mine. The Project is strategically located near Hudbay's mining operations in the Snow Lake mining camp within the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt in central Manitoba.

Rockcliff's President and CEO Ken Lapierre commented, "The Morgan property hosts high grade zinc and gold zones within trucking distance to operating milling operations centered in the Snow Lake mining camp. The Morgan property acquisition is in line with our strategy of acquiring the highest grade un-mined copper, zinc and gold properties available in the camp that have excellent growth potential. The Morgan property hosts favourable VMS and gold-bearing stratigraphy striking for many kilometres. We look forward to advancing our understanding of the Morgan property's potential through compilation of existing historical data followed by exploration programs in 2017."

The Morgan property hosts the historical gold rich Morgan zinc deposit documenting as having between a total of 272,000 tonnes grading 15.0% zinc and 3.42 g/t gold and 200,000 tonnes grading 8% zinc. Historical estimates of grade and tonnage given in this Press Release are viewed as reliable and relevant based on the information and methods used at the time. Historical estimates were identified in published Manitoba Government reports and in independent reports from resource companies. Caution must be taken when viewing historical resources as they were not prepared in compliance with resource definitions under NI 43-101 and must be considered only as historic resources. Neither Rockcliff nor its Qualified Persons have done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as a current mineral resource under current mineral resource or mineral reserve terminology and are not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource. The historic resource of the Morgan deposit should not be relied upon. Additional work including surface geophysics, drilling and bore hole geophysics will need to be completed to determine if the historical resource can be upgraded to a current compliant resource.

Rockcliff will acquire a 100% interest in the Morgan property (Morgan Lake, Woosey Lake and Cook Lake properties), subject to a net smelter returns royalty (NSR), by paying Copper Reef $100,000 cash and 200,000 common shares on closing, a further $50,000 cash and 400,000 common shares within 6 months and a final 1.0 million common shares within 12 months. Copper Reef will retain a 2% NSR on the Morgan Lake property, which is subject to a 10% net profits interest royalty in favour of the original owner, a 2% NSR on the Woosey Lake property and a 1% NSR on the Cook Lake property, which is also subject to a 2% NSR in favour of a former joint venture party. A third party holds certain rights in respect of the Morgan Lake property and Cook Lake property including a back-in right to acquire a 60% interest in these properties if a mineral resource is identified with 225,000 tonnes of contained copper equivalent or a 20% back-in right if Rockcliff transfers these properties to a major company. If Rockcliff commences commercial production on the Morgan property, it will pay an advance royalty payment to Copper Reef of $1.0 million. Rockcliff at any time will have the right to purchase one-half of the Copper Reef NSRs for $1.0 million and will retain a Right of First Refusal on Copper Reef's remaining NSRs. The acquisition is subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.

Ken Lapierre P.Geo., President and CEO of Rockcliff., a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101, has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this press release.

Rockcliff Intersects Multiple Sulphide Lenses at Talbot including 6.3m Grading 9.0% Cueq including 1.7m Grading 20.4% Cueq

Toronto, ON – November 1, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) is pleased to announce the first drill hole assay results from its phase 2 drill program on the Talbot Property, Manitoba. Drill hole TB-011 intersected multiple lenses of volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) mineralization with the following composite results;

Main Lens-6.3 metres grading 9.0% Cueq including 1.7 metres grading 20.4% Cueq, Footwall Lens-7.2 metres grading 3.6% Cueq and Hanging Wall Lens-3.5 metres grading 2.8% Cueq

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO commented, “With high grade copper and gold assays in multiple zones including a newly intersected mineralized hangingwall zone, we have decided to increase our planned drill meterage to 6,000 metres from its original 5,000 metres.  All three lenses have significant grades while the main lens contains high grade gold mineralization which could have significant economic benefits for the property moving forward.  The gold-rich Talbot copper deposit is open in all directions and we look forward to expanding its limits as well as testing proximal high priority geophysical targets.” 

Completed drill hole information from its ongoing phase 2 drill program is tabled below.

Rockcliff Identifies High Grade Gold Veins at Laguna

Toronto, ON –  October 26, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) is very pleased to announce that the Company’s exploration program has identified visible gold and high grade gold mineralization from known historic surface quartz veins at its Laguna Gold property. Additionally, the Company has discovered a gold bearing quartz vein stockwork system with a minimum surface strike length of 300 metres and a true thickness of up to 5 metres. Rockcliff has an option to earn a 100% interest in the Laguna Gold property which hosts the former high grade Laguna gold mine and multiple quartz veins exposed at surface. The property is strategically located 20 kilometres from a fully functional, non-operating, 2,150 tonne per day gold mill facility in Snow Lake, MB.

Exploration at the Laguna property identified surface quartz veins yielding high grade gold mineralization. Of immediate interest is a quartz rich stockwork system traced intermittently for over 300 metres along strike with a true thickness of up to 5 metres. Termed the “007 quartz vein”, it is open to expansion in all directions with grab samples assaying from trace to 43.3 g/t gold, 1.2 g/t to 118.6 g/t silver and trace to 6.2% zinc. Additional historic veins (newly termed #001 vein to #006 vein) were located with grab samples assaying from trace gold up to 699.2 g/t (20.4 ounces per tonne) gold. The veins ranged between 0.2 metres up to 5.0 metres in width and were traced up to 1.0 kilometres along strike and visible gold was observed in outcrop. A total of 50 grab samples taken by Rockcliff are tabulated below. Quartz veins 3 and 4 returned no significant gold values in the samples assayed to date.

Rockcliff’s follow-up plans will include data compilation, surface geophysics (an induced
polarization survey) followed by a first phase drill program. With multiple high grade, gold-rich, quartz veins throughout the Laguna property and no diamond drilling completed since the 1940s, the 2016-2017 exploration program is the first systematic, scientific exploration program on the property in over 70 years.

The Laguna property hosts the Laguna gold mine, the highest grade former gold mine in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camps. Historical, intermittent gold mining from the Laguna vein between 1916 and 1939 of approximately 101,012 tonnes averaged 20.5 g/t (0.60opt) and produced over 60,000 ounces of gold. The Laguna gold mine infrastructure consists of a three compartment vertical shaft to 381 meters and 8 levels totalling over 3.0 kilometres of underground drift and stope development. The Laguna vein remains open along strike and at depth. Exploration has identified quartz veins #001 to #007 located proximal to the Laguna vein, all of which show significant potential for advancement. The Laguna property includes 15 contiguous mining claims totalling 920 hectares and is located approximately 20 kilometres southeast of the Town of Snow Lake, MB.

The gold mineralization on the Laguna property is metallogenically controlled by subsidiary thrust faults attributed to the major Crowduck Bay Fault which crosses the entire length of the property over a distance of 3.5 kilometres. The gold-rich quartz veining along the northwest limb of the Herb Lake Syncline typically occurs where the subsidiary faults intersect quartz-feldspar and biotite porphryry stocks that intrude Missi Group sedimentary and volcanic rocks. Quartziron carbonate-albite-sericite alteration commonly overprint peak regional metamorphic assemblages within auriferous vein margins. Mineralization in quartz and surrounding wall rock consists of pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, pyrrhotite, native gold and telluride. Typical gangue minerals include tourmaline and fuchsite.

Rock samples were taken in the field, packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff’s field office to TSL Laboratories (TSL), Saskatoon, SK. TSL is a Canadian assay laboratory and is accredited under ISO/IEC 17025. Each bagged rock sample was dried, crushed to 70%
passing 10 mesh and a 250g pulp was pulverized to 95% passing 150 mesh for assaying. A
0.5g cut was taken from each pulp for base metal analysis (if needed) and leached in a multi acid (total) digestion and then analyzed for copper, lead, zinc and silver by atomic
absorption. Gold concentrations were determined by fire assay using a 30g charge followed by fire assay gravimetric an atomic absorption finish. Samples greater than an upper detection limit (3000 ppb) were reanalyzed using a 1 AT charge. Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the sample stream to ensure lab integrity.

Rockcliff Commences Drilling at Talbot Focusses on Expansion of High Grade Deposit and New Discoveries

Toronto, ON – October 11, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) today announced that a second phase drill program on the Talbot property has commenced. The fully permitted program is planned to include between 10-12 holes totalling approximately 5,000 meters and will focus on three areas centered around the gold-rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) Talbot copper deposit. The deposit is part of the Company's Snow Lake Project centered on the Snow Lake mining camp within the prolific Flin Flon greenstone belt located in central Manitoba. 

The Company plans to drill test three areas on the property identified from last year's surveys and drill program. They are: 1) the Talbot deposit main and north lens where drilling last year identified a potential high grade copper corridor within the main lens and a potential extension of the north lens of the deposit, 2) the north copper zone where shallow drilling intersected copper mineralization at the very top edge of a large untested bore hole geophysical target immediately below the mineralization, and 3) the central anomaly, located 2 km southeast of the Talbot deposit, is a geophysical target similar in size and conductance to the geophysical target associated with the Talbot deposit. 

The Talbot Property includes an Inferred Mineral Resource as set out in the National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") technical report dated January 25, 2016 and titled "Technical Report on the Talbot Property, Manitoba, Canada" (the "Technical Report"), a copy of which is available on the Company's sedar profile at www.sedar.com, in respect of an initial Mineral Resource Estimate prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. ("RPA") for the Talbot Deposit located on the Talbot Property, central Manitoba.

The Inferred Mineral Resource Statement prepared by RPA for the Talbot Deposit is detailed below.

Notes:
1. CIM definitions were followed for the estimation of Mineral Resources.
2. Mineral resources are estimated at a cut-off grade of $140 Net Smelter Return (NSR) (equivalent to a copper NSR cut-off of 2.0%) using metal prices, estimated recoveries and offsite payments.
3. Mineral Resources are estimated using a long-term copper price of US$3.50 per pound, gold price of US$1450 per ounce, zinc price of US$1.25 per pound and silver price of US$22 per ounce.
4. An US$/C$exchange rate of 1.18 was used.
5. A minimum mining width of 2 m was used.
6. The average bulk density is 3.2t per cubic meter.
7. Numbers may not add due to rounding.
8. Given the tonnage, grade and orientation of the deposit, RPA considers the Talbot Deposit to be reasonably amenable to extraction using underground mining methods.
9. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

Assay results from the second phase drill program at Talbot will be reported to the public once received from TSL Laboratories.

The Talbot deposit is defined as a gold-rich stratabound, VMS deposit consisting of several lenses of coarse grain to stringer to massive sulphides of pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and pyrrhotite in a quartzofeldspathic gneiss. The depositional environment is similar to that of present and past producing base metal deposits of felsic to mafic volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks in the Flin Flon - Snow Lake Greenstone Belt.

Rockcliff can earn a 51% interest in the Talbot Property from Hudson Bay Exploration and Development Company Limited (HBED), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hudbay Minerals Inc. by spending $6,120,000 on exploration expenditures over the next six (6) years. The agreement provides that once Rockcliff has earned its 51% interest in the Property, Rockcliff (51%) and Hudbay (49%) will form a joint venture and Rockcliff will be the Operator of the joint venture. Provided Hudbay contributes its pro rata (49%) share of expenditures under the joint venture, it will have two (2) years from the date Rockcliff earns its 51% interest to purchase an additional 2% interest for a cash payment of $240,000 and either incurring expenditures over a two (2) year period equivalent to 2% of the joint venture expenditures made since the formation of the joint venture or paying such amount to Rockcliff in cash. If Hudbay acquires the additional 2%, it will become the Operator of the joint venture. Once a positive Feasibility Study has been completed and mining development has commenced, the Operator can increase its interest in the Property to 65% by paying the other participant a cash payment equal to the pro rata share of expenditures made by the other participant to reduce it to a 35% interest. The Operator would then fund the costs of development and will be reimbursed for 100% of the development costs including the 35% interest of the non-operator. Once the costs of development have been repaid, the parties will be reimbursed their pro rata share of expenditures made prior to the date development commences before net profits are distributed pro rata (please see Press Release dated April 23, 2014 and filed on SEDAR under Rockcliff Resources for additional information).

Rockcliff Acquires Strategic Gold Property Beside Million Ounce Gold Producer, Snow Lake, Manitoba

Toronto, ON – October 5, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) today announced that the Company has acquired an option to earn a 100% interest in the Snow Lake Gold Property which is strategically located in the Snow Lake mining camp and adjacent to a former million ounce gold producer (New Britannia Mine)as well as a fully functional non-operating 2,150 tonne per day gold mill facility. The gold property now forms part of Rockcliff's existing Snow Lake Project which hosts the highest grade former gold mine and the highest grade unmined copper-rich and zinc-rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits in the Snow Lake camp.

President & CEO of Rockcliff, Ken Lapierre commented, "This strategic property hosts multiple, gold-rich shear zones interpreted to be associated with fault splays off the main McLeod Road Thrust Fault, a major regional structural break that strikes across the property for 9 km and is associated with gold mines and deposits in the Snow Lake camp. The land package has exceptional high grade gold potential with geology sitting beside a gold mill facility in the middle of the Snow Lake camp. Our plan is to advance this asset by first compiling of all existing data followed by the completion of modern airborne and surface geophysical surveys and ultimately testing of the areas of gold potential by drilling in 2017."

The Snow Lake Gold Property covers 42 claims totalling 5,304 hectares. Several gold and VMS zones have been identified on the Snow Lake Gold Property of which the higher priority zones are briefly described below.

Birch Gold Extension: Historical shallow drilling inside the property boundary and located 300m east of the previously mined Birch gold deposit intersected potential extensions of the deposit:

  • Zone 3: 8.92g/t Au over 0.7m (BIR11-06),
  • Zone 5: 6.65g/t across 0.4m (BIR11-11),
  • Zone 5: 3.82g/t Au across 3.15m including 6.28g/t across 1.0m (BIR11-12) and
  • Zone 6: 61.83g/t Au across 0.41m (BIR11-12).

Gold mineralization is associated with moderately to strongly sheared quartz-carbonate flooded zones with arsenopyrite, pyrite and pyrrhotite.

Hawk Gold-Copper Zone: An undrilled, siliceous pillow basalt-bearing horizon with stringers to massive sulphides containing copper-gold mineralization has been intermittently traced for over 2 km with widths up to 30m. Historical grab samples were reported to grade from trace to 2.0g/t gold and trace to 5.2% copper throughout the zone. VMS alteration of garnet-anthophyllite-cordierite and tourmaline is associated within the footwall of the zone. The horizon is proximal and parallel to the regional McLeod Road Thrust Fault.

Angus Bay Gold Zone: An undrilled, structurally controlled 800m long siliceous quartz-feldspathic gneiss gold zone contains historic grab sample values ranging from 0.86g/t to 34g/t gold. The gold zone is hosted within a subsidiary fault splay off the regional McLeod Road Thrust Fault.

Wolverton Gold Zone: Multiple (5) quartz veins associated with rusty, weathered, garnetiferous quartz-feldspar-biotite gneiss. Vein #1 is 305m long and between 3.5m to 10.5m wide. Vein #2 is 1,372m long and averages 0.6m wide. Historical shallow drilling in the 1940s and 1970s intersected values ranging from 1.37g/t gold over 0.61m to 24.69g/t gold over 1.04m. The gold bearing veins are located east of and parallel the regional McLeod Road Thrust Fault.

Rockcliff can acquire a 100% interest in the Snow Lake Gold Property by paying Peter Dunlop an aggregate of $200,000 cash and issuing 750,000 shares to him over a four (4) year period. Expenditure requirements to keep the option in good standing over five (5) years total $1,000,000 with a minimum $100,000 in expenditures in any year. The vendor will retain a 2.5% NSR on the property of which one 1.5% NSR can be purchased at any time for $500,000 per 0.5% NSR. The vendor's remaining NSR will be subject to a first right of refusal in favour of Rockcliff. An advance royalty payment of $35,000/year to the vendor begins after year five (5) of the option and is capped at $175,000. The advanced royalty payment will be repaid from production, if any, on the property.

Rockcliff Signs Option Agreement With Hudbay for a Zinc-Rich Deposit

Toronto, ON – September 29, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) today announced that the Company has signed an option agreement dated September 20, 2016 to earn up to 100% interest in the Bur property from Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Co., Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of HudBay Minerals Inc. (Hudbay) (TSX:HBM)(NYSE:HBM). The Bur property hosts a high grade, zinc-rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposit and is strategically located nearby Hudbay's operations in the Snow Lake mining camp within the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt in Manitoba.

Rockcliff's President and CEO Ken Lapierre commented, "The Bur deposit is one of the highest grade unmined zinc-rich deposits in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp and fits perfectly with our goal of acquiring, discovering and advancing high grade metal-rich deposits in this prolific camp. Adding high grade zinc resources near our existing high grade copper resources adds excellent diversity in metals that are moving towards a world-wide shortage. Also, it is one of the most cost effective ways to achieve significant growth within a world class mining camp known for its exceptional metal grades, outstanding infrastructure and low cost electrical power. The addition of this high grade zinc deposit enhances our ability to make significant strides towards our ultimate goal of becoming the next mine finders in one of the best mining and exploration jurisdictions in the world."

The Bur property hosts the high grade zinc-rich Bur deposit, located 22km by road northeast of Hudbay's Snow Lake copper-zinc concentrator and 28km from the Town of Snow Lake, Manitoba. The property covers 86 mining claims, totalling 3,979 hectares. A report (see Bur Deposit Report below) was prepared for Hudbay in 2007. Rockcliff is treating the estimate of mineral resources in the Bur Deposit Report as a "historical estimate" under NI 43-101 and not as a current mineral resource.

Notes:

  1. CIM definitions were followed for the estimation of mineral resources.
  2. Mineral resources are estimated at a zinc equivalent cut-off of 5%.
  3. Cut-off grade was based on a zinc price of US$1.15 per pound and a copper price of US$2.35 per pound.
  4. Given the tonnage, grade and orientation of the deposit, AMEC considers the Bur Deposit to be reasonably amenable to extraction using underground mining methods.
  5. Specific Gravity measurements used to estimate the mineral resource tonnes ranged from 2.64 to 3.74 with an average of 3.16.
  6. A minimum mining width of 3m was used.
  7. Numbers may not add due to rounding
  8. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.
  9. The deposit was documented in a report dated October 1, 2007 and titled "Bur Project, Snow Lake Manitoba, Canada NI 43-101 Technical Report" (the "Bur Deposit Report"). The report was prepared for Hudbay by AMEC Americas Limited (AMEC) and was filed on Hudbay's SEDAR profile on January 31, 2008.

Historical estimates of grade and tonnage given in this Press Release are viewed as reliable and relevant based on the information and methods used at the time. They were prepared in compliance with resource definitions under NI 43-101 but must be considered only as historic resources as the Bur Deposit Report was prepared for Hudbay in 2007. Neither Rockcliff nor its Qualified Persons have done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as a current mineral resource under current mineral resource or mineral reserve terminology and are not treating the historic estimate as a current mineral resource. The historic resource should not be relied upon. Additional work including surface geophysics, drilling and bore hole geophysics will need to be completed to upgrade the historical resource to current.

The Bur deposit is a stratiform, distal, massive sulphide deposit that occurs within a narrow turbidite assemblage of interbedded metagreywacke, metasiltstone and graphitic meta-argillite in a basinal area situated between a two granitic intrusions. The northeast striking deposit dips 60-70 degrees northwest, ranges from <0.3m up to 5m thick with a known lateral extent of approximately 4,500m. Drilling has encountered disseminated, semi-massive and massive sulphide mineralization below overburden to a vertical depth of 950m. Mineralization consists of sphalerite, chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite, galena and arsenopyrite. The Bur deposit contains up to 20% felsic or cherty nodules consisting of wall rock and late quartz fragments displaying a brecciated texture to the mineralization. The deposit remains open in all directions.

Rockcliff can earn a 100% interest in the Bur property from Hudbay by spending $3.0M in exploration over a four year period in increasing yearly expenditure requirements. The first and second year expenditure requirements are $400K and $600K, respectively. Once the 100% earn-in is complete, Rockcliff may exercise its option to own a 100% interest in the property. On exercise of the option, Hudbay will receive a 2% Net Smelter Return (NSR) royalty on the property. Hudbay will then have one year (the buy-back waiting period) to decide whether to buy back 70% of the property by paying Rockcliff a total of $3.0M cash over a three year period. Hudbay will also pay Rockcliff double the exploration expenditures incurred by Rockcliff during the buy-back waiting period, capped at $1.5M, if it elects to exercise its buy-back right. Upon Hudbay exercising its buy-back right, Hudbay's right to receive the 2% NSR royalty shall terminate. Hudbay and Rockcliff will then form a joint venture on a 70/30 (Hudbay/Rockcliff) basis and will be responsible for their respective pro rata share on further exploration of the property. Once a decision is made to construct a mine, Hudbay shall contribute on behalf of Rockcliff Rockcliff's proportionate share of the expenses in the form of a non-interest bearing loan, repayable in accordance with the terms of the joint venture agreement.

Rockcliff Acquires Former High Grade Laguna Gold Mine: Produced over 60,000 Ounces of Gold Averaging 18.5 g/t

 

 Toronto, ON – September 12, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff “or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) today announced that the Company has acquired an option to earn a 100% interest in the Laguna Gold Property which hosts the high grade Laguna gold mine. The gold property is strategically located 20km southeast of Snow Lake, Manitoba and near Rockcliff’s existing high grade copper-rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits. 

The Laguna gold mine is the highest grade former gold mine in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp. Historical intermittent gold mining from the Laguna vein between 1916 and 1939 from approximately 101,012 tonnes averaged 18.5 g/t gold (0.54 opt) and produced over 60,000 ounces of gold. The vein remains open along strike and at depth and the property has additional surface high grade lode gold-rich quartz veins for exploration. 

President & CEO of Rockcliff, Ken Lapierre commented, “The Laguna Gold property was the highest grade lode-gold producer in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt. Laguna is part of a unique list of gold deposits with grades above 10g/t that make up less than 5% of all deposits globally and is part of Snow Lake’s rich history of gold and VMS mining. It complements our goal of acquiring the highest grade metal deposits in the Snow Lake camp. With multiple high grade gold-rich quartz veins throughout the property and no diamond drilling since the 1940s, our exploration program will begin immediately and include geology, geophysics and a planned first phase drill program during the first quarter of 2017 or earlier.” 

Preliminary due diligence grab sampling by Rockcliff at Laguna confirmed the presence of high grade lode-gold mineralization throughout the property from at least six gold-rich quartz veins. Grab samples ranged from trace to 264.65g/t gold. Visible gold was observed in outcrop. 

Table 1: A total of 28 due diligence grab samples by Rockcliff are tabulated below. 

The Laguna Property includes 15 contiguous mining claims totalling 920 hectares and is located approximately 20 km southeast of the Town of Snow Lake. The Laguna gold mine infrastructure consists of a three compartment vertical shaft to 381 meters and 8 levels totalling over 3.0 km of underground drift and stope development. The property is strategically near Snow Lake, home to a former million ounce lode-gold producer and a fully functional non-operating 2,150 tonne per day gold mill facility. 

The gold mineralization on the Laguna property is metallogenically controlled by subsidiary thrust faults attributed to the major Crowduck Bay Fault which crosses the entire length of the property a distance of 3.5 km. The gold-rich quartz veining along the northwest limb of the Herb Lake Syncline typically occurs where the subsidiary faults intersect quartz-feldspar and biotite porphryry stocks that intrude Missi Group sedimentary and volcanic rocks. Quartz-iron carbonate-albite-sericite alteration commonly overprint peak regional metamorphic assemblages within auriferous vein margins. Mineralization in quartz and surrounding wall rock consists of pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, pyrrhotite, native gold and telluride. Gangue mineralization is in the form of tourmaline and fuchsite. 

Rockcliff can acquire a 100% interest in the Laguna Gold Property by paying an aggregate of $200,000 cash and issuing 750,000 shares over a four (4) year period. Expenditures over five (5) years total $1,000,000 with a minimum $100,000 in expenditures in any year. The vendor will retain a 2.5% NSR on the property of which one 1.5% NSR can be purchased at any time for $500,000 per 0.5% NSR. The vendor’s remaining NSR will be subject to a first right of refusal in favour of Rockcliff from 0.5% NSR up to 1.0% NSR on certain claims of the property. An advance royalty payment of $35,000/year to the vendor begins after year five (5) of the 

option and is capped at $175,000. The advanced royalty payment will be repaid from production on the property. 

Rock samples are taken in the field, packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff’s field office to TSL Laboratories (TSL), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. TSL is a Canadian assay laboratory and is accredited under ISO/IEC 17025. Each bagged rock sample is dried, crushed to 70% passing 10 mesh and a 250g pulp is pulverized to 95% passing 150 mesh for assaying. A 0.5g cut is taken from each pulp for base metal analysis (if needed) and leached in a multi acid (total) digestion and then analyzed for copper, lead, zinc and silver by atomic absorption. Gold concentrations are determined by fire assay using a 30g charge followed by fire assay gravimetric an atomic absorption finish. Samples greater than an upper detection limit (3000 ppb) are reanalyzed using a 1 AT charge. Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the sample stream to ensure lab integrity. 

Ken Lapierre P.Geo., President and CEO of Rockcliff., a Qualified Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 43-101, has read and approved the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure contained in this press release.

Rockcliff to Commence Drilling at Talbot Property, Manitoba

Toronto, ON September 6, 2016, Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff”) (TSX.V: RCU) today announced that a second phase drill program on the Talbot property is planned to commence in October. The fully permitted program is planned to include between 10-15 holes totalling approximately 5,000 metres and will focus on three areas centered on high priority targets. The majority of the drilling will focus on expansion of existing resources (high grade Talbot Deposit) and discovery of additional zones of gold-rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) mineralization at the North Copper Zone and the Central Target Anomaly. The property is strategically located in the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt, the most prolific and highest grade VMS District in Canada and the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS District in the world.

 

On February 4, 2016 Rockcliff announced the completion of a National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) technical report titled “Technical Report on the Talbot Property, Manitoba, Canada” (the “Technical Report”) in respect of an initial Mineral Resource Estimate prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. (“RPA”) for the Talbot Deposit located on the Talbot Property, central Manitoba.  

 

The Inferred Mineral Resource Statement prepared by RPA for the Talbot Deposit is detailed below.

Notes:

1. CIM definitions were followed for the estimation of Mineral Resources.

2. Mineral resources are estimated at a cut-off grade of $140 Net Smelter Return (NSR) (equivalent to a copper NSR cut-off of 2.0%) using metal prices, estimated recoveries and offsite payments.

3. Mineral Resources are estimated using a long-term copper price of US$3.50 per pound, gold price of US$1450 per ounce, zinc price of US$1.25 per pound and silver price of US$22 per ounce.

4. An US$/C$ exchange rate of 1.18 was used.

5. A minimum mining width of 2 m was used.

6. The average bulk density is 3.2t per cubic metre.

7. Numbers may not add due to rounding.

8. Given the tonnage, grade and orientation of the deposit, RPA considers the Talbot Deposit to be reasonably amenable to extraction using underground mining methods.

9. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and have not demonstrated economic viability.

 

For additional information on Rockcliff’s high grade copper-rich VMS properties please visit our website at www.rockcliffcoppercorp.com

 

The high grade Talbot Deposit is defined as a stratabound, VMS deposit consisting of several lenses of coarse grain to stringer to massive sulphides of pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and pyrrhotite in a quartzofeldspathic gneiss. The depositional environment is similar to that of present and past producing base metal deposits of felsic to mafic volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake Greenstone Belt.

High Grade Gold Identified at Snow Lake Project Summer Exploration Program to Commence

 

 Toronto, Ontario. Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff“ or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) is pleased to announce high gold grades from surface grab samples at its Dickstone North Property as part of its ongoing regional exploration program on its Snow Lake Project (“Project”) located in central Manitoba. Grab sample results ranging from trace to as high as 21.2g/t gold were identified within a mineralized quartz vein system along a strike length of 140m. The quartz vein system is located in the vicinity of high priority airborne geophysical anomalies which remain unexplained. Also, a fully permitted, geological and geophysical exploration program will commence shortly on areas of the Project with high priority targets for VMS (copper, gold, zinc, silver) and gold mineralization. The Project is located within the world class Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt. The Project presently hosts several high grade VMS deposits rich in copper, gold, zinc and silver and numerous additional areas with potential for discovery. 

At the 100% owned Dickstone North Property, high grade gold was identified in the vicinity of historical, overgrown, shallow trenches. A total of thirteen grab samples were analyzed and returned results ranging from trace to as high as 21.2g/t gold. Gold values are hosted within a quartz vein system up to 2.0m in width and traced for 140m cross-cutting a large porphyritic intrusion. Mineralization consists of chalcopyrite, arsenopyrite, pyrrhotite and pyrite. Two unexplained airborne VTEM anomalies are located south of the gold showing and additional exploration in this area is strongly warranted. 

The fully permitted summer exploration program will focus on specific properties within the Project including the Dickstone North, Lon, Rail, Tramping and Talbot properties. Work will focus on geological and geophysical surveys over high priority areas prior to drilling. At Dickstone North, work will focus on the recently identified gold-rich quartz vein system and the nearby VTEM anomalies. At Lon, geological and geophysical surveys will be completed in the vicinity of the “DC Zone”; a surface outcrop exposure of 6.1% Zn (historic grab sample) located proximal to an untested 600m long, 13 channel DPEM conductor. At Rail, exploration will focus on a 4 km long “copper corridor” that hosts the Rail Deposit and several airborne anomalies on strike with the deposit. At Tramping, an untested buried circular airborne anomaly associated with favourable geology will be ground proofed. At Talbot, additional surface geophysics will be completed on areas proximal to the high grade Talbot Copper Deposit where previous work outlined potential areas with additional copper mineralization. 

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO commented, “We look forward to advancing our new high grade gold system at the Dickstone North Property and continuing to advance our high grade copper assets within the Project. With a successful summer field season we look forward to a busy drill program this fall.”

Quality Control and Quality Assurance

Samples of half core are packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff’s field office to TSL Laboratories (TSL), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. TSL is a Canadian assay laboratory and is accredited under ISO/IEC 17025. Each bagged core sample is dried, crushed to 70% passing 10 mesh and a 250g pulp is pulverized to 95% passing 150 mesh for assaying. A 0.5g cut is taken from each pulp for base metal analyses and leached in a multi acid (total) digestion and then analyzed for copper, lead, zinc and silver by atomic absorption. Gold concentrations are determined by fire assay using a 30g charge followed by an atomic absorption finish. Samples greater than upper detection limit (3000 ppb) are reanalyzed using fire assay gravimetric using a 1 AT charge. Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the sample stream to ensure lab integrity. Rockcliff has no relationship with TSL other than TSL being a service provider to the Company.

Rockcliff Announces Disposition of Colombian Assets and Cancellation of Shares

 

 NEWS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

March 7, 2016 Trading Symbol RCU: TSXV 

Rockcliff Announces Disposition of Colombian Assets and Cancellation of Shares

Toronto, Ontario. Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a definitive share purchase agreement with a former insider of the Company pursuant to which Rockcliff intends to complete a sale (the “Disposition”) of its 100% interest in both the Caramanta and Guadalupe gold properties (the “Properties”) located in Colombia, South America. In consideration for the Disposition, the Company will receive a 2% net smelter return royalty on all current titles and applications associated with each of the Properties and 5,000,000 Rockcliff common shares which will be immediately cancelled. On closing of the Disposition, the number of Rockcliff common shares that will be issued and outstanding will be 103,201,018. Pursuant to the terms of the share purchase agreement, certain shareholders of the Company are subject to contractual lock-ups with Rockcliff that prevent the sale, transfer or disposal of or dealing with any common shares (or securities convertible or exchangeable into common shares) of Rockcliff for a period of 270 days following closing of the Disposition. In connection with the Disposition, the Company engaged a valuator to provide a fairness opinion in respect of the Properties and the transaction. The fairness opinion concluded that the transaction was fair from a financial point of view to Rockcliff’s shareholders. The Company expects the Disposition to close within the next week. 

Ken Lapierre, Rockcliff’s President and CEO stated “the challenging political and economic environment, the inability of the Government to issue basic drill permits, IAMGOLD dropping its option, the high on-going carrying costs and the fact the Colombia properties were no longer material to the Company were the significant reasons for the sale. Additionally, the cancellation of 5.0M shares and receiving a 2% net smelter return royalty on any future gold production were important considerations. Following the Disposition, Rockcliff intends to focus exclusively on advancing its Snow Lake Project which hosts some of the highest grade undeveloped copper-gold deposits within the world class Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp in central Manitoba, Canada.”

Rockcliff Files on SEDAR an Initial Inferred Resource Estimate for the High Grade Talbot Deposit, Talbot Property, Manitoba: 2,168,300 Tonnes at 2.8% Copper, 2.4g/t Gold, 2.2% Zinc, 54.6g/t Silver

Toronto, Ontario.  Further to its news release dated February 4, 2016, Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff“ or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) is pleased to announce the filing of a National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) technical report entitled “Technical Report on the Talbot Property, Manitoba, Canada”(the “Technical Report”) in respect of an initial Mineral Resource Estimate prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. (RPA) for the Talbot Deposit located on the Talbot Property, central Manitoba. A copy of the Technical Report is available on the Company’s SEDAR issuer profile on at www.SEDAR.com.   

 

The Inferred Mineral Resource Statement prepared by RPA for the Talbot Deposit is detailed below.

Inferred Mineral Resource Statement, Talbot Deposit, Manitoba, RPA, January 26, 2016

 

Notes:

1. CIM definitions were followed for the estimation of Mineral Resources.

2. Mineral resources are estimated at a cut-off grade of $140 Net Smelter Return (NSR) (equivalent to a copper NSR cut-off of 2.0%) using metal prices, estimated recoveries and offsite payments.

3. Mineral Resources are estimated using a long-term copper price of US$3.50 per pound, gold price of US$1450 per ounce, zinc price of US$1.25 per pound and silver price of US$22 per ounce.

4. An US$/C$ exchange rate of 1.18 was used.

5. A minimum mining width of 2 m was used.

6. The average bulk density is 3.2t per cubic meter.

7. Numbers may not add due to rounding.

8. Given the tonnage, grade and orientation of the deposit, RPA considers the Talbot Deposit to be reasonably amenable to extraction using underground mining methods.

9. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.

 

Resource Estimation Methodology
An initial Mineral Resource estimate was carried out by RPA using a block model constructed in Datamine Studio 3, constrained by wireframes generated in Leapfrog Geo version 3. Densities were assigned using stoichiometry.  Assay values were capped and composited to the full intercept length.  Block grades were interpolated using a three pass search strategy and Inverse Distance raised to the fourth power (ID4).  Block estimates were validated using visual inspection; comparison between composite sample and block means, and swath plots. 

 

The Inferred Resource Estimate for the Talbot Deposit is classified as an "Inferred" Mineral Resource, and was classified in accordance with guidelines established by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM) "Estimation of Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves Best Practice Guidelines" dated November 23rd, 2003 and CIM "Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves" dated May 10, 2014. The drill hole database to support the Talbot Mineral Resource estimate is comprised of 45 drill holes drilled between 2003 and 2015 for a total of 27,044 m of drilling.  Based on the current data available supporting the Mineral Resource Estimate, all material above the Mineral Resource cut-off grade was classified as Inferred. 

 

Mineral Resources are estimated using a long-term gold price of US$1,450 per ounce, silver price of US$22 per ounce, copper price of US$3.50 per pound, and zinc price of US$1.25 per pound. An NSR cut-off value of C$140 was used for reporting of Mineral Resources.  Metal prices used for reserves are based on consensus, long term forecasts from banks, financial institutions, and other sources. For resources, metal prices used are slightly higher than those that would be used for reserves. RPA routinely updates metal forecasts based on the sources described above.  The metal prices used for the Talbot Mineral Resource estimate were based on forecasts as of October 2015. RPA notes that the selected gold and copper prices are also consistent with that used by major mining gold producers for their year-end resource disclosure. A minimum thickness criteria of two metres was applied for reporting purposes.

 

Extent to Which the Mineral Resource Estimate may be Materially Affected by any Known Relevant Issues
Neither Rockcliff’s Qualified Person, Ken Lapierre, nor RPA’s Qualified Person, Sean Horan, nor Management of Rockcliff is aware of any known environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing or other relevant issues that may materially affect the estimate of the Mineral Resource.

 

Talbot Mineralization and Exploration Potential
The Talbot Property hosts several target areas defined as “high priority” and worthy of follow-up exploration.  The high grade Talbot Deposit is defined as a stratabound, volcanogenic massive sulphide deposit consisting of several lenses of coarse grain to stringer to massive sulphides of pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and pyrrhotite in a quartzofeldspathic gneiss.  The deposit remains open at depth and to the north where bore hole geophysical surveys have indicated a continuation of the sulphide conductivity beyond the present limits of the resource. The newly discoveredNorth Copper Zone located 2.5km north of the Talbot Deposit is associated with a large ZTEM anomaly and bore hole geophysics suggest the present drill holes only intersected the top edge of a strong, large untested conductor.  The Central Target is a large untested VTEM/ZTEM anomaly located 2.0km southeast of the Talbot Deposit with geophysical signatures similar to the Talbot Deposit and North Copper Zone.   The depositional environment of the Talbot Property is similar to that of present and past producing base metal deposits of felsic to mafic volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks in the Flin Flon – Snow Lake Greenstone Belt.

Samples of half core are packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff’s field office to TSL Laboratories (TSL), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.  TSL is a Canadian assay laboratory and is accredited under ISO/IEC 17025.  Each bagged core sample is dried, crushed to 70% passing 10 mesh and a 250g pulp is pulverized to 95% passing 150 mesh for assaying.  A 0.5g cut is taken from each pulp for base metal analyses and leached in a multi acid (total) digestion and then analyzed for copper, lead, zinc and silver by atomic absorption.  Gold concentrations are determined by fire assay using a 30g charge followed by an atomic absorption finish.  Samples greater than upper detection limit (3000 ppb) are reanalyzed using fire assay gravimetric using a 1 AT charge.  Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the sample stream to ensure lab integrity. Rockcliff has no relationship with TSL other than TSL being a service provider to the Company.

Rockcliff can earn a 51% interest in the Talbot Property from Hudson Bay Exploration and Development Company Limited (HBED), a wholly owned subsidiary of Hudbay Minerals Inc. by spending $6,120,000 on exploration expenditures over six (6) years.  The first and second year expenditure commitments are $200K (completed) and $400K respectively with escalating expenditure commitments over the remaining years.  The agreement provides that once Rockcliff has earned its 51% interest in the Talbot Property, Rockcliff (51%) and Hudbay (49%) will form a joint venture and Rockcliff will be the Operator of the joint venture.  Provided Hudbay contributes its pro rata (49%) share of expenditures under the joint venture, it will have two (2) years from the date Rockcliff earns its 51% interest to purchase an additional 2% interest for a cash payment of $240,000 and either incurring expenditures over a two (2) year period equivalent to 2% of the joint venture expenditures made since the formation of the joint venture or paying such amount to Rockcliff in cash. If Hudbay acquires the additional 2%, it will become the Operator of the joint venture. Once a positive Feasibility Study has been completed and mining development has commenced, the Operator can increase its interest in the Talbot Property to 65% by paying the other participant a cash payment equal to the pro rata share of expenditures made by the other participant to reduce it to a 35% interest. The Operator would then fund the costs of development and will be reimbursed for 100% of the development costs including the 35% interest of the non-operator. Once the costs of development have been repaid, the parties will be reimbursed their pro rata share of expenditures made prior to the date development commences before net profits are distributed pro rata (please see Press Release dated April 23, 2014 and filed on SEDAR under Rockcliff Resources for additional information).
