Soils add near-surface, high-grade gold targets
· Very high gold-in-soil results up to 0.23g/t Au (230 parts per billion), with 5 samples exceeding 0.1g/t Au (100ppb);
· These soil results add significant potential for discovery of near-surface, high-grade gold at Double Event, where multiple drilling results include 3m @ 10.04g/t Au and 3m @ 2.94g/t Au from within 20m of the surface.
· The highest gold-in-soil results originate from an area to the north of previous Rockfire drilling. This appears to be a parallel, mineralised vein and offers another target to increase potential gold ounces;
· Two areas have been highlighted which require extension soil sampling. Gold-in-soil runs off the edge of the sampling survey in these areas.

Chief Executive Officer of Rockfire,
"Our recent soil sampling program at Double Event was an outstanding success. The soils have highlighted sections of the vein system which show high-grade gold-in-soil and which have not previously been explored."
"Gold-in-soil up to 0.23g/t is a very pleasing result and it is not often one sees such high-grade gold in soils. Just over 12% of samples at Double Event returned results above 10ppb and 5% are in excess of 50ppb (0.05g/t) Au. This is most encouraging."
"Several areas have been highlighted which require extensions to the survey, as gold-in-soil extends beyond the limit of the surveyed area. In addition to this, we will commence soil sampling to the west of Double Event and inside the adjoining Kookaburra tenement. This is expected to return gold-in-soil anomalies in areas where previous exploration for gold has been extremely limited."
"Such high gold-in-soil results and the delineation of discrete anomalies confirms our confidence in the potential of the Double Event Prospect. An extended soil sampling program, detailed ground magnetics and high-resolution photogrammetry will be undertaken to the west of Double Event, focused more inside the Kookaburra tenement. As we learn more about the orientation and distribution of gold at surface, the Kookaburra tenement is becoming an increasingly important target along strike from Double Event and has the potential to add significantly to any future discovery."
"In addition to this on-going work at Double Event, our exploration teams have also designed a soil sampling survey over the Copper Dome prospect and work at Copper Dome is planned to commence soon."
Competent Person Statement:
Information in this announcement that relates to exploration results is based on information compiled by Mr
In quoting exploration targets, the potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature. There has been insufficient exploration to estimate a Mineral Resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the estimation of a Mineral Resource.
