Additional High Grade Gold Documented at Snow Lake Project Fully Permitted Summer Exploration Program to Commence

Toronto, ON – May 25, 2017 –  Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: RCU) (FRANKFURT: RO0) (WKN: A142TR) is pleased to report additional high gold grades from previous historical surface exploration at its gold-rich Dickstone North Property ("DSN"). The DSN Property, Laguna Property and SLG Property are high grade gold properties controlled by Rockcliff within its high grade precious and base metal Snow Lake Project ("Project") located in central Manitoba. The Project presently hosts the highest grade unmined copper rich and zinc rich Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide ("VMS") deposits and highest grade former gold mine within the world class Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt. The Project is located within trucking distances to mining infrastructure including base and precious metal mills at Snow Lake, Manitoba.

A fully permitted, surface exploration program will commence shortly on the gold properties of the Project in preparation for an initial Fall 2017 drill program. The three gold properties of the Project are briefly outlined below.

At the DSN Property, a major regional structural break called the Morton Lake Fault Zone, crosses the property for a distance 15 kilometres ("km"). The fault zone hosts multiple high grade gold showings with noted visible gold. Historical surface grab sample results ranging from trace to as high as 34.0 grams per tonne ("g/t") gold and historical channel samples from trace to as high as 104.5 g/t gold across 0.25 metres ("m") have been identified in several mineralized quartz vein systems along a 3 km long section of the fault zone. Rockcliff's geological program will focus on the known area of gold mineralization within the fault zone and on the remaining 12 km strike length that was completely overlooked by previous operators. Rockcliff holds a 100% interest in the DSN Property.

At the Laguna Property, the Crowduck Bay Fault Zone, a major regional structural break with an associated gold-rich fault splay crosses through the property. A 6 km long fault splay termed the Laguna Gold Mine Trend hosts numerous high grade quartz vein systems and the former Laguna Gold Mine, the first and highest grade gold mine in Manitoba. Historical, intermittent gold mining from the Laguna vein between 1916 and 1939 produced over 60,000 ounces of gold grading 18.7g/t. Rockcliff's previously announced surface grab sample results ranging from trace to over 600 g/t gold were identified in narrow (less than 1.0 m) and up to 3-5 m wide quartz stockwork systems within the Laguna Gold Mine Trend. A surface and airborne geophysical program which began in early 2017 will be completed after winter break-up. Rockcliff's geological program will assist in the drilling planned for the Fall of 2017. Rockcliff has an option to earn a 100% interest in the Laguna Property. See the Company's Press Release dated September 12, 2016 for particulars.

At the SLG Property, the McLeod Road Thrust Fault, a major regional structural break, crosses through the property a distance of 9.0 km. The thrust fault and associated gold-rich fault splays host the former million ounce gold producer (New Britannia/Nor Acme Mine) which is located adjacent to the property. The mineralization and resources on the New Britannia/Nor Acme Mine are not necessarily indicative of the mineralization, if any, hosted on the Company's property. Within the property several areas of high grade gold potential associated with the thrust fault will be explored in the upcoming geological program. Rockcliff has an option to earn a 100% interest in the SLG Property. See the Company's Press Release dated October 5, 2016 for particulars.

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO commented, "The upside gold potential of our three gold properties within our Snow Lake Project is excellent. While we remain committed to advancing our core VMS properties we cannot underestimate the primary lode gold potential of our project which includes Manitoba's first and highest grade gold mine. The fact that the present Snow Lake VMS mining camp initially began as a gold mining camp and hosting a plus million ounce gold producer bodes well for the potential of our nearby gold properties. We look forward to advancing these gold properties through a systematic, scientific summer exploration program followed by a first phase Fall 2017 drill program."

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 Discovers High Grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) Zone

Toronto, ON – April 26, 2017 –  Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) (FRANKFURT:RO0) (WKN:A142TR) is pleased to announce the drill hole assay results from its recently completed Phase 2 drill program on the Talbot Property ("Property"), Manitoba. The Property forms part of Rockcliff's Snow Lake Project centered on the Snow Lake Mining Camp, Manitoba, Canada.

The Company reports the discovery of a high grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) zone, termed the North Lens Deep Zone ("Zone"), intersected in the last two holes (TB-019 and TB-020) of the Phase 2 drill program. Both holes tested an area within a large untested geophysical conductive plate termed the North Lens Deep Conductive Plate ("Plate") and intersected significant VMS mineralization 250 metres (m) apart. The Zone is a new VMS target and is identified within the Plate that has dimensions of approximately 400 m by 1,000 m. Conductivity of the Plate is strengthening at depth below the deepest drill hole (TB-020) intercept for an additional 800 m vertical. Mineralization is open in all directions. Discovery drill hole TB-019, press released on April 6, 2017 intersected:

3.94 m grading 7.5% Copper Equivalent (Cueq), (0.24% Cu, 7.3g/t Au, 0.88% Zn, 112.5g/t Ag) including 2.54 m grading 9.9% Cueq, (0.16% Cu, 10.35g/t Au, 0.23% Zn, 156.02g/t Ag)

Step out drill hole (TB-020) tested an area 250 m below the VMS discovery in drill hole TB-019 and intersected:

6.65 m grading 2.4% Cueq (0.81% Cu, 0.67g/t Au, 1.91% Zn, 17.03g/t Ag) including 1.92 m grading 5.4% Cueq (1.44% Cu, 1.66 g/t Au, 5.16% Zn, 26.5g/t Ag)

Rockcliff President and CEO commented, "This important early stage VMS discovery, initially identified as a high priority geophysical conductive plate, hosts significant concentrations of copper, gold, zinc and silver. The Talbot property also hosts the nearby high grade gold-rich Talbot copper deposit which was historically identified as two separate high priority geophysical conductive plates. Most large VMS mines in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp are comprised of multiple stacked VMS-rich lenses that were identified initially as geophysical conductive plates and the Talbot property appears to have those same attributes. Further drilling is planned in 2017 to define the Plate's significant economic potential."

Drill hole assay results from the Company's completed Phase 2 drill program are tabled below. 

Notes(m) = metres represents down the hole thickness as true thickness is not currently known, % = percentage, g/t = grams per tonne, *copper equivalent value used US$2.50/pound copper, US1300/ troy ounce gold, US$1.15/pound zinc and US$20 /per ounce silver, 100% metal recoveries were applied, copper equivalent calculation is: CuEq = Cu grade + ((Zn grade%/100 x Zn price) + (Au grade gpt x Au price/gram) + (Ag grade gpt x Ag price/gram))/Cu price x 100. The numbers may not add up due to rounding.  TB019 was press released on April 6, 2017.

*Please review the high grade gold-rich Talbot copper deposit NI 43-101 Resource estimate on the following page for additional information.

Drill hole TB-019 tested the very top edge of the Plate located below the Talbot deposit north lens.  Step out drill hole TB-020 tested the Plate approximately 250 m below drill hole TB-019.  Both holes intersected gold-rich VMS mineralization termed the North Lens Deep Zone.  Additional down-the-hole geophysics confirmed that the conductivity below the VMS mineralization intersected in drill hole TB-020 strengthened below the hole. The Plate measured approximately 400 m by 1000 m. 

Drill hole TB-019 was drilled at UTM NAD83 co-ordinates 458634E/5997410N, to a depth of 926 m, along an azimuth of 285 degrees, and a dip of -70 degrees. 

Drill hole TB-020 was drilled at UTM NAD83 co-ordinates 458775E/5997350N, to a depth of 1160 m, along an azimuth of 285 degrees, and a dip of -73 degrees.

Talbot Deposit NI 43-101 Resource:
On February 4, 2016, Rockcliff announced on the Property 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.

Rockcliff Identifies Large Geophysical Plate below Pen Zinc Deposit, Manitoba

Toronto, ON – March 21, 2017 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A142TR) is pleased to announce that its recently completed surface geophysical survey has identified a large untested conductive plate below the historical Pen Zinc Deposit that is partially located on the Company’s 100% owned Penex zinc property (the “Property”), Snow Lake, Manitoba.  The Property is strategically located approximately 4.5 kilometres southwest of Hudbay Minerals Inc.’s (“Hudbay”) high-grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Lalor mine and less than 200 metres from Hudbay’s up-dip near surface portion of the historic high grade unmined Pen zinc deposit.  The Property hosts the down dip continuation of the Pen zinc deposit and is part of the Company’s Snow Lake Project, one of the highest grade base and precious metals property portfolios in North America.

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO of Rockcliff commented, “In exploration, geophysics is crucial in discovering buried conductive plates that could end up becoming high grade base metal mines in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp.  We are fortunate to have acquired 100% interest in the Penex Zinc Property by staking.  The Property covers the down dip continuation of the high grade Pen Zinc deposit where it crosses onto our Property at approximately 300-350 metres vertical.  With our geophysical survey identifying a strong untested conductive plate immediately below the known deposit and continuing to a depth of at least 800 metres vertical bodes well for high grade zinc mineralization to continue on the Property.  We will continue to explore and prepare the Property for a planned drill program in 2017.”

The high grade Pen zinc deposit hosts multiple zinc-rich lenses, strikes northeast-southwest and dips/plunges northwest. The deposit is located less than 200 metres on surface from the Property’s southern boundary.  All lenses of the Pen zinc deposit dip towards the Property’s southern boundary and at least one of the zinc-rich lenses dips and plunges onto the Property at a vertical depth of between 300-350 metres. The deepest historical drill hole (CPen-03) on the Property intersected the deposit at approximately 475 metres vertical.  The hole assayed 6.7% zinc equivalent across a down the hole thickness (not true thickness) of 2.6 metres within a much thicker zinc envelope of a down the hole thickness (not true thickness) of 7.6 metres grading 4.0% zinc equivalent.  Bore hole geophysics completed in drill hole CPen-03 and now in surface geophysics have confirmed that the deposit’s conductivity continues downward on the Property below the hole and was strengthening at depth where the deposit remains untested by drilling.

The following Pen zinc deposit longitudinal section outlines the depth potential of the Pen zinc deposit above and below drill hole CPen-03.

Rockcliff Commences Geophysical Surveys at Laguna Gold, Manitoba

Toronto, ON – March 6, 2017 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A142TR) is pleased to announce that a Phase one geophysical program has commenced at the Company's high grade Laguna gold property (the "Property"), in Manitoba. The Company will complete an airborne magnetometer survey over the entire Property using state of the art drone airborne equipment and complete an Induced Polarization (IP) survey to cover the prospective high grade Laguna gold mine trend. The Property hosts the former high-grade Laguna gold mine and is part of the Company's Snow Lake Project, one of the highest grade base and precious metals property portfolios in North America. The Snow Lake Project is located in the Snow Lake mining camp in the eastern half of the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt which hosts numerous high grade precious and base metal deposits and mines.

Ken Lapierre President & CEO stated "Our geophysical program is the first program of its kind ever on the Property. Last year's initial prospecting program over historic showings identified significant, widespread gold values from trace up to 20 ounces per tonne. More importantly it discovered that the gold mineralization is structurally controlled and associated with much thicker zones of gold-rich quartz stockwork systems not previously identified or reported in historical documents. The detailed drone magnetometer and the IP surveys will play a pivotal role in following and identifying the horizontal and lateral extent of the known high-grade stockwork systems under the overburden covered Laguna gold mine trend. With this phase one geophysical data, we will be one step closer to our first drill program on the Laguna gold mine trend and the first on this trend in over 70 years."

State-of-the-Art Airborne Drone Magnetometer Survey

A total of 1,116 kilometres of tightly spaced lines between 25 metres and 50 metres spacing has commenced at the Property by A.I.R. Inc. from Flin Flon, Manitoba. The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) used is a state-of-the-art Canadian designed and built helicopter style UAV which slings a potassium magnetic sensor underneath. Helicopters offer many advantages over other kinds of UAVs: Vertical Take-off and Launch, highest aerodynamic efficiency in forward flight as well as the best size vs payload vs flight time available. A GPS guided autopilot coupled with ground elevation data allows it to fly accurate survey lines that hug the terrain. With the implementation of a UAV over conventional ground and airborne surveys, one can now economically fly extremely tightly spaced lines with high density ground sampling distances without the need for line cutting. It is now possible to resolve individual magnetic anomalies that were previously indistinguishable when surveyed using conventional ground and airborne surveys, a perfect solution for structurally controlled gold exploration targets like that at the Property. Ultimately, magnetic surveys done from a UAV deliver higher quality magnetic data at a decreased cost with a reduced environmental footprint.

Induced Polarization Survey

Geophysique TMC, who have a long history of providing high quality field surveys to their clients, was awarded the IP contract. The initial ground geophysical surveys will consist of 65 kilometers of Gradient IP. IP and resistivity surveys are a useful tool in gold exploration to map resistivity and chargeability distributions and also to assist in general geologic mapping of lithology, structure and alteration along favourable horizons. The Gradient profiling technique has been selected here due to its good signal-to-noise, improved survey economics, and because of the capacity for good lateral resolution and depth penetration. Pole-dipole detailed surveys will be conducted over the highest priority target areas for additional detailing, with 3D inversions performed on both datasets.

About the Property

The Property hosts the Laguna gold mine, a high-grade former gold mine in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp. Historical, intermittent gold mining from the Laguna vein between 1916 and 1939 produced over 60,000 ounces of gold grading 18.7g/t. The Laguna gold mine infrastructure consists of a three compartment vertical shaft to 381 metres and 8 levels totalling over 3.0 kilometres of underground drift and stope development. The Property now includes 34 contiguous mining claims totalling 3,499 hectares covering 6.0 kilometres of prospective strike length of the Laguna gold mine trend. The Property is strategically located 20 kilometres from a 2,150 tonne per day gold mill facility in Snow Lake, Manitoba.

The gold mineralization on the 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 6.0 kilometres. The gold-rich quartz veining and stockwork systems along the northwest limb of the Herb Lake Syncline typically occur 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 quartz stockwork wall rock consists of pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, pyrrhotite, native gold and telluride. Typical gangue minerals include tourmaline and fuchsite.

Pursuant to its option agreement Rockcliff can earn a 100% interest in the Property. Please refer to the news release dated September 12, 2016 for specific terms of the option agreement.

Rockcliff Stakes Extension of High Grade Pen Zinc Deposit, Manitoba Provides Update on Talbot Drilling

Toronto, ON – February 16, 2017 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A142TR) is pleased to announce it has acquired by staking the Penex zinc property (the “Property”), Snow Lake, Manitoba.  The Property is strategically located approximately 4.5 kilometres southwest of Hudbay Minerals Inc.’s (“Hudbay”) high-grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide Lalor mine and less than 200 metres from Hudbay’s historic high grade Pen zinc deposit.  The Property hosts the down dip continuation of the high grade Pen zinc deposit and now becomes part of the Company’s Snow Lake Project, one of the highest grade base and precious metals property portfolios in North America. The Snow Lake Project is located in the Snow Lake mining camp located within the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt hosting high-grade precious and base metal deposits and mines.

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO of Rockcliff commented, “Staking of the Penex zinc property containing the down dip continuation of the high grade Pen zinc deposit was very strategic and timely.  It underpins our commitment to acquire properties either by staking or acquisition that have significant metal potential within trucking distance to milling facilities in this world class base and precious metals camp.  We feel confident that our 100% owned Penex zinc property will become a very strategic asset for Rockcliff.”

Hudbay’s high grade Pen zinc deposit hosts multiple zinc-rich lenses, strikes northeast-southwest and dips/plunges northwest. The deposit is located less than 200 metres on surface from the Property’s southern boundary.  All lenses of the Pen zinc deposit dip towards the Property’s southern boundary and at least one of the zinc-rich lenses dips and plunges onto the Property at a vertical depth of between 300-350 metres. The deepest historical drill hole (CPen-03) on the Property intersected the deposit at approximately 475 metres vertical.  The hole assayed 6.7% zinc equivalent across 2.6 metres within a much thicker zinc envelope of 7.6 metres grading 4.0% zinc equivalent.  Bore hole geophysics completed in drill hole CPen-03 confirmed that the deposit’s conductivity continued downward within the Company’s Property and was strengthening at depth below the hole in an area completely untested by drilling.   

Rockcliff’s fully permitted surface geophysical Deep Penetrating ElectroMagnetic (DPEM) survey has commenced on the Property.  The DPEM survey will assist in determining the extent and depth potential of the conductivity related to the Pen zinc deposit on the Company’s Property and will provide a framework for a diamond drilling program planned in 2017.

The following Pen zinc deposit longitudinal outlines the depth potential of the Pen zinc deposit above and below drill hole CPen-03. Borehole geophysics confirmed that the conductivity of the deposit was strengthening at depth below the hole.

Talbot Property Update:

Rockcliff continues its Phase 2 diamond drill program on the Talbot property.  Three holes will test geophysical conductive plates below the north copper zone located 2.5 kilometres from the Talbot deposit and the north lens deep conductive plate located immediately below the Talbot deposit’s north lens.  The north lens deep conductive plate measures 300 metres by 600 metres and drilling will attempt to determine the economic significance of this plate.

The image below identifies the location of the north lens deep conductive plate to be drilled located below the Talbot deposit north lens and additional plates located in close proximity to the high grade gold-rich Talbot copper deposit.

Pursuant to an option agreement Rockcliff can earn a 51% interest in the Talbot property from Hudbay. Please refer to the news release dated October 11, 2016 for specific terms of the option agreement.

Rockcliff Intersects 16.1m Grading 3.5% Cueq including 3.5m Grading 5.2% Cueq: Large Buried Conductive Plate Discovered Below Talbot Deposit Main Lens

Toronto, ON – February 16, 2017 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU)(FRANKFURT:RO0)(WKN: A142TR) is pleased to announce drill hole assay results from its on-going Phase 2 drill program on the Talbot Property, Manitoba. Additional geophysical resurveying of historical drill holes has discovered a conductive plate immediately below and down dip of the main lens of the Talbot Deposit and a surface Deep Penetrating ElectroMagnetic (DPEM) survey has discovered a second larger deeply buried conductive plate below the main lens.  The Talbot Property forms part of Rockcliff’s Snow Lake Project and is strategically located within the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake Greenstone Belt Manitoba, Canada. 

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO commented, “Drilling the main lens of the Talbot Deposit in an area void of drilling has identified excellent grades over thick intervals.  Drilling will now focus on testing the North Lens Deep Conductive Plate, a recently discovered vertical dipping 300 metre by 600 metre sized geophysical target located below the Talbot Deposit north lens. Additional geophysics has discovered the Main Lens Conductive Plate, a new untested geophysical target below the main lens of the Talbot Deposit which could represent the down dip continuation of the main lens. Geophysics also discovered the West Talbot Deep Conductive Plate, a much deeper but larger flat lying geophysical target with dimensions of 1 kilometre by 1 kilometre.  Since most of the larger mines in the camp have multiple stacked lenses that were initially identified as conductive plates, we remain greatly encouraged not only by the consistent high metal grades and increased size potential of the deposit but by the metal potential of the untested stacked conductive plates proximal to the deposit.  Drilling will continue until winter break-up, testing the North Lens Deep Conductive Plate below the north lens of the deposit and the conductive plates below the north copper zone located 2.5 kilometres north of the Talbot Deposit.”

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

Rockcliff Expands Talbot Drill Program to 7,500m Intersects 5.6m Grading 5.90% Cueq including 2.8m Grading 9.9% Cueq

Toronto, ON – January 18, 2017 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU)(FRANKFURT:RO0)(WKN: A142TR) is pleased to announce drill hole assay results from its on-going Phase 2 drill program on the Talbot Property, Manitoba. The Talbot Property forms part of Rockcliff's Snow Lake Project which is located within the prolific Flin Flon-Snow Lake Greenstone Belt, Manitoba, Canada.

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO commented, "Diamond drilling at the gold-rich Talbot copper deposit continues to intersect significant high grade mineralization and the mineralization remains open in all directions. The deposit is comprised of multiple lenses which is typical of large producing mines in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp. The drill program has now been expanded from 6,000 metres to 7,500 metres. We continue to focus on resource expansion of the deposit as well as drill testing geophysical plates/anomalies recently discovered from the resurveying of historical drill holes."

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

Rockcliff Samples High Grade Gold Veins at Laguna and Airborne Magnetometer Survey to Commence

Toronto, ON – January 11, 2017 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: RCU) (FRANKFURT: RO0) (WKN: A142TR) is pleased to announce that the Company's exploration program continues to identify high grade gold mineralization from known historic surface quartz veins at its Laguna Gold property. Additionally, the Company has contracted a state of the art drone airborne magnetometer survey to be completed over the entire Laguna Property. The Laguna Gold property is part of Rockcliff's high grade base metal and precious metal Snow Lake Project located within the prolific world class Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt."

Ken Lapierre President & CEO stated "The detailed drone survey will aid in the potential identification of new structurally controlled high grade gold rich environments under the property's thin overburden cover as well as follow the known areas of gold mineralization. With multiple high grade, gold-rich, quartz veins throughout the Laguna property and no diamond drilling completed since the 1940s, the present exploration program is the first systematic, scientific exploration program on the property in over 70 years. We look forward to advancing this high grade gold property to its first drill program in a very long time."

Sampling Program

Additional sampling at Laguna was completed prior to winter freeze-up and has identified further evidence of an extensive and high grade gold rich environment over considerable distances. The "gold mine trend" now covers over 6.0 kilometres within the property boundary. A total of 25 grab samples from four vein systems are tabulated below. Please note that grab samples are selected samples that are not representative of the overall gold grades on the property.

State-of-the-Art Airborne MagnetometerSurvey

A total of 1,116 kilometres of tightly spaced lines between 25 metres and 50 metres spacing will be completed at Laguna by A.I.R. Inc. from Flin Flon, Manitoba. The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) used is a state-of-the-art Canadian designed and built helicopter style UAV which slings a potassium magnetic sensor underneath. Helicopters offer many advantages over other kinds of UAVs: Vertical Take-off and Launch, highest aerodynamic efficiency in forward flight as well as the best size vs payload vs flight time available. A GPS guided autopilot coupled with ground elevation data allows it to fly accurate survey lines that hug the terrain. With the implementation of a UAV over conventional ground and airborne surveys, you can now economically fly extremely tight line spacings with high density ground sampling distances without the need for linecutting. It is now possible to resolve individual magnetic anomalies that were previously indistinguishable when surveyed using conventional ground and airborne surveys - perfect for structurally controlled gold exploration targets like that at the Laguna property. Ultimately, magnetic surveys done from a UAV deliver higher quality magnetic data at a decreased cost while reducing environmental impact.

Laboratory QA/QC

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.

About the Laguna Property

The Laguna property hosts the Laguna gold mine, a high grade former gold mine in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake mining camp. 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 metres and 8 levels totalling over 3.0 kilometres of underground drift and stope development. The Laguna property now includes 34 contiguous mining claims totalling 3,499 hectares covering 6.0 kilometres of prospective strike length of the gold-rich mine trend. The property is strategically located 20 kilometres from a fully functional, non-operating, 2,150 tonne per day gold mill facility in Snow Lake, Manitoba, Canada.

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 6.0 kilometres. The gold-rich quartz veining and stock work systems along the northwest limb of the Herb Lake Syncline typically occur 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 quartz stockwork wall rock consists of pyrite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite, galena, pyrrhotite, native gold and telluride. Typical gangue minerals include tourmaline and fuchsite.

Rockcliff Intersects Talbot Deposit-Main Lens 5.3m Grading 3.9% Cueq: New Large Untested Anomaly Discovered Below Deposit

Toronto, ON –  January 5, 2017 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation (“Rockcliff” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: RCU) (FRANKFURT: RO0, WKN: A142TR) is pleased to announce additional drill hole assay and geophysical drill hole survey results from its ongoing phase 2 exploration program on the Talbot Property.  The property forms part of Rockcliff’s Snow Lake Project centered on the Snow Lake Mining Camp, Manitoba.

Highlights:

  • Recently completed drill hole intersects high grade mineralization of the Talbot deposit main lens. Drill hole TB-012 intersects 5.3 metres grading 3.9% Copper Equivalent (Cueq) (2.0% copper, 1.94g/t gold, 0.32% zinc, 20.03g/t silver)
  • Surveying of drill holes locates one of the largest undrilled conductive geophysical anomaly/plate yet discovered below the Talbot deposit north lens with dimensions of 300 metres by 600 metres.

At the Talbot deposit main lens, drill hole TB-012 intersected the main lens mineralization confirming continuity of the main lens in an area void of drilling along the deposit’s north boundary of the main lens. 

At the Talbot deposit north lens, the Company completed several drill hole geophysical surveys on historic holes and on its recently completed drill holes TB013 and TB014 which intersected 7.1 metres grading 4.1% Cueq and 2.6 metres grading 2.4% Cueq respectively (please see press release dated November 29, 2016 for additional information).  The survey results identified a new drill target that represents one of the largest undrilled conductive plates yet discovered on the property below the existing Talbot deposit north lens mineralization, measuring 300 metres along strike and 600 metres of depth extent. Historic hole TLS007 appears to have intersected the very top edge of the conductive plate intersecting 4.4% Cueq across 2.1 metres.  A preliminary longitudinal image of the conductive plate location relative to the Talbot deposit is shown below.

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO commented, “All large mines in the Flin Flon-Snow Lake greenstone belt have extensive multiple stacked mineralized lenses that coincide with multiple stacked extensive conductive geophysical anomalies or plates.   At Talbot, the fact that we have discovered the largest undrilled geophysical conductive plate immediately below the Talbot deposit is encouraging and a real testament to the significant upside potential on this property located within this prolific world class mineral belt.  Our phase 2 drill program will continue immediately and will focus on the discovery of additional mineralized lenses proximal to the Talbot deposit”.

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.

Rockcliff Expands Size of Talbot Deposit-North Lens

Toronto, ON – November 29, 2016 – Rockcliff Copper Corporation ("Rockcliff" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:RCU) is pleased to announce additional drill hole assay results from its phase 2 drill program on the Talbot Property, Manitoba. Drill holes TB-013 and 14 have extended the strike length of the high grade, gold-rich, Talbot copper deposit a total distance of 175m north of historical drill holes. The Talbot deposit forms part of Rockcliff’s Snow Lake Project centered on the Snow Lake Mining Camp. The depositional environment at the Talbot Property is similar to that of present and past producing base metal mines of bi-modal volcaniclastic rocks in the prolific Flin Flon – Snow Lake Greenstone Belt.

Rockcliff also wished to announce that its common shares have been listed and posted for trading on the Frankfurt Exchange under the symbol “RO0”, WKN:A142TR, ISIN: CA77288Q1037.

Ken Lapierre, President and CEO commented, “The high grade, gold-rich, Talbot copper deposit continues to exhibit impressive grades and we will continue to focus efforts on expansion of the present resource. Additionally, our current 6,000 metre phase 2 drill program is testing high priority geophysical anomalies that have similar size and conductance values comparable to that associated with the Talbot deposit.”

Completed drill hole information from the Company’s ongoing phase 2 drill program is tabled below.

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.

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.
