Rockcliff to Commence Drilling at High-Grade Bur Zinc Property

Rockcliff Metals Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCLF) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A2H60G) is pleased to announce that a fully permitted, 2,500 metres, 15-hole drill program will commence this month on the Company's Bur Zinc Property located in Manitoba, Canada. The objective of the program is expansion of the known high grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) Bur zinc deposit limits. Rockcliff is the largest junior landholder in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt which is the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS district (copper, gold, zinc, silver) in the world that also contains gold mines and deposits.

Rockcliff's President and CEO Ken Lapierre commented: "The Bur zinc deposit is one of the highest-grade undeveloped zinc-copper rich VMS deposits within trucking distance to an operating base metal mill facility. The drilling program will test above and to the south of the known mineralization of the deposit."

A report was prepared on the Bur Zinc Property 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 considered 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 3 metres was used. 7.Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. 8. 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 " NI 43-101 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 resource standards.

The Bur zinc 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 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 4,500 metres. Historical drilling encountered disseminated, semi-massive and massive sulphide mineralization below overburden to a vertical depth of 950 metres. Mineralization consists of sphalerite, chalcopyrite, pyrrhotite, pyrite, galena and arsenopyrite. The Bur zinc 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 Bur zinc deposit remains open in all directions.

Rockcliff can earn a 100% interest in the Bur Zinc Property from Hudbay Minerals. Please refer to Rockcliff's news release dated September 26, 2016 for specific terms of the option agreement.

Rockcliff Identifies Multiple VMS Targets at the SLS #2 Property and Strengthens Land Position at Snow Lake, Manitoba

Rockcliff Metals Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCLF) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A2H60G) announced today the identification of multiple Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide ("VMS") targets on the SLS #2 Property, and has acquired through map staking a 100% interest in two immediately adjacent land packages totalling 174,379 hectares. Rockcliff is the largest junior landholder in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt ("Belt") which is the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS district (copper, gold, zinc, silver) in the world and also contains gold mines and deposits.

Rockcliff's President & CEO Ken Lapierre stated: "With the addition of these large exploration properties, Rockcliff is now well positioned in an underexplored part of a world-class VMS Belt buried below a thin limestone cover. Rockcliff now controls almost 3,000 square kilometres of continuous underexplored geology in the area with a significant VMS discovery potential. Rockcliff will explore and advance this area of the Belt and will focus on identifying priority 1 VMS targets for the purpose of drill testing. Additional information on our exploration efforts in this area will be forthcoming when our compilation efforts are complete."

Please review the image on the following page which highlights the strategic location of all of Rockcliff's extensive property portfolio including the large district-sized newly acquired SLS #3 and SLS #4 properties and the immediately adjacent SLS #1 and SLS #2 properties.

The Newly Acquired SLS #3 and SLS #4 Properties

The SLS #3 and SLS #4 properties host 7 Mineral Exploration Licenses (MEL) totalling over 174,379 hectares and are located in an area termed the Snow Lake South Emerging Mining Camp. The SLS #3 and SLS #4 properties strategically cover an underexplored area hosting the southeast extension of the world-class and prolific greenstone belt which is home to over 30 VMS mines and 10 gold mines, the majority of which have been discovered north of the Phanerozoic limestone cover. The SLS #3 and SLS #4 properties are located south of this cover, where prospective greenstone occurs under a thin layer of limestone that progressively reaches up to 100 metres thick. Though this cover has impeded earlier exploration efforts, modern scientific advances in geophysical techniques have allowed a "window effect" through the limestone so potential VMS targets can be identified.

At the SLS # 2 Property, an exhaustive data compilation effort was completed of all available public geophysical datasets including GSC Airborne Magnetics, GSC Gravity, and high resolution SPECTRUM airborne surveys. A litho-structural interpretation of the entire area was undertaken including a detailed analysis of several nearby VMS deposits. The aim of these studies was to provide a better understanding of the litho-structural environment under the limestone cover that could be associated with VMS mineralization and to make recommendations for areas which could be prospective for VMS discovery. Recent analysis of gravity, magnetics and electromagnetics led to the identification of eight separate high-priority target areas within the SLS #2 Property and was the basis for acquisition of the immediately adjacent SLS #3 and SLS #4 properties.

Required Expenditures Moving Forward on the SLS Properties

Rockcliff now controls a 100% interest in the SLS #1 through to SLS #4 properties, a land package south of the cover, totalling almost 3,000 square kilometres with no underlying royalties. It has unfettered access to explore and discover metals within the property limits. Expenditure requirements for Mineral Exploration Licences are defined by the Province of Manitoba within the Mines and Minerals Act. These expenditures must be completed and submitted annually to the Manitoba Government to maintain the 4 SLS properties in good standing. The total first year expenditure commitment is $361,723.

Rockcliff Drilling Intersects Visible Gold at Laguna Gold Property

Additional Quartz Veins Discovered

Rockcliff Metals Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCLF) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A2H60G) is pleased to announce that a first phase drill program has been completed on the Company's high-grade Laguna Gold Property located in Snow Lake, Manitoba. The Laguna Gold Property was last drilled in 1944 and hosts the past producing Rex-Laguna mine that was Manitoba's first and highest-grade gold mine.

Rockcliff's President & CEO Ken Lapierre stated: "We look forward to the assay results from the first drill program completed on the property in over 70 years. The drill program not only identified depth extents of several historical gold bearing surface quartz veins − it also discovered new quartz veins with visible gold. Several holes were extended well beyond their original target depths as mineralized quartz veins and surrounding mineralized host rock were intersected at depths of over 500 metres. Exploration will continue in 2019."

See Figure 1 on the following page highlighting Rockcliff's 5 district-sized Snow Lake gold properties including the Laguna Gold Property.

Laguna Reconnaissance Drill Program

The purpose of the drill program was to determine if known historical gold bearing quartz veins had depth potential and to discover additional auriferous mineralization. A total of six widely spaced holes totalling 2,552 metres were drilled across a strike length of 2,115 metres within the six-kilometre-long Laguna Gold Mine Trend. All holes intersected mineralized quartz veins and mineralized tuffaceous and porphyritic host rock. Several holes discovered new mineralized targets for future testing. Two of the six holes intersected very fine-grained flecks of visible gold within several mineralized quartz veins. Pending assay results in the coming weeks will be announced once all samples are verified.

The Laguna Gold Property

The Laguna Gold Property hosts the Rex-Laguna gold mine, Manitoba's first and highest-grade historic gold mine located within the Snow Lake Gold camp. The camp is located within the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt, a belt known originally for its high-grade gold mines and now for its high-grade base metal mines. Historical, intermittent gold mining at Rex-Laguna, between 1916 and 1939 produced over 60,000 ounces of gold grading 18.7 g/t. The Laguna Gold Property includes 28 contiguous mining claims totalling 3,501 hectares, covering a minimum of 6.0 kilometres of prospective strike length of the Laguna Gold Mine Trend.

The gold mineralization on the Laguna Gold Property is controlled by thrust faults attributed to the major regional Crowduck Bay Fault which crosses the entire length of the Laguna Gold Property. The known gold-rich quartz veins along the northwest limb of the Herb Lake Syncline typically occur where the faults intersect quartz-feldspar and biotite porphyry stocks that intrude Missi Group sedimentary and volcanic rocks. Quartz, iron carbonate-albite-sericite alteration commonly overprints peak regional metamorphic assemblages within gold-bearing vein margins. Mineralization in quartz veins and surrounding tuffaceous and porphyritic wall rock consists of pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena and pyrrhotite. Native gold is associated within and along the margins of quartz veins.
