Rockcliff Commences Winter Exploration Program at its Snow Lake Project Drill Set to Begin on the Tower and Dickstone

Rockcliff Commences Winter Exploration Program at its Snow Lake Project Drill 
Set to Begin on the Tower and Dickstone Properties 
Trading Symbol RCR: TSXV 
TORONTO, Jan. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Rockcliff Resources Inc. (RCR: TSXV) is pleased 
to announce that its winter exploration program, including a minimum 1,500 
meters of drilling, has begun at its Snow Lake Project located in central 
Manitoba. Line cutting and a DPEM geophysical survey have commenced on the 
Tower Property. Drilling will start in February or earlier and will begin at 
the former copper-zinc producer Dickstone Property then shift to the Tower 
Property. The Snow Lake Project is located within the prolific Flin Flon 
greenstone belt, host to the largest Paleoproterozoic VMS district in the 
world. 
At Dickstone, drilling will follow-up on last year's hole RDS12-002 which 
intersected: 1.7% copper, 0.3g/t gold, 0.2% zinc, 6.1g/t silver across 4.2m 
including 2.7% copper, 0.4g/t gold, 0.3% zinc, 8.6g/t silver across 2.5m. Down 
hole geophysics determined that the hole hit the bottom edge of a large strong 
conductive anomaly which was identified north and south of the existing mine 
workings. The untested anomaly measured 250m wide and 800m long. 
At Tower, drilling will initially focus on the T-2 Copper Zone, discovered 
last summer in hole TP12-025 which intersected 2.44% copper, 0.7g/t gold, 0.3% 
zinc, 18.2g/t silver across 4.0m including 3.3% copper, 0.8g/t gold, 24.6g/t 
silver, 0.4% zinc across 2.0m. It is located at the very south edge of a 
potential +500m long untested DPEM geophysical anomaly. Additional DPEM 
geophysics is in progress to assist in defining the total size and direction 
of the anomaly in an area of the property that has yet to see any modern 
exploration. The NI 43-101 T-1 Copper Deposit is located within 200m of the 
T-2 Copper Zone. Please refer to the press releases dated December 6, 2012 and 
January 22, 2013 for information on the high grade NI 43-101 resource of the 
T-1 Copper Deposit. 
Ken Lapierre, President and CEO of Rockcliff commented, "Last year's discovery 
of the T-2 Copper Zone and our recently announced NI 43-101 resource of the 
high grade T-1 Copper Deposit outlines the tremendous potential of the Tower 
Property to host multiple high grade copper rich zones all located within 300m 
of a major all season highway and power line. Additionally, on the Dickstone 
Property, the large untested, strongly conductive geophysical target gives us 
the potential to identify significant copper rich mineralization with 
substantial size below existing mine workings." We are excited about the 
overall potential of this drill program and look forward to continued success 
through the drill bit!"

Pursuant to an exploration and option agreement with Pure Nickel Inc., to earn 
a 70% interest in the property, Rockcliff must pay $150,000 in incremental 
payments and is required to incur aggregate exploration expenditures totalling 
$4,000,000. 
Rockcliff has recently exercised the option to earn its 50% interest by 
spending $2,000,000 on exploration expenditures and paying $90,000 to Pure 
Nickel Inc. over the last two years. Both parties will now form a joint 
venture and Rockcliff will earn an additional 20% in the property by spending 
an additional $2,000,000 (approximately $1,300,000 of which has been spent to 
date) in exploration expenditures and paying a total of $60,000 over the next 
2 years. Once completed, Rockcliff will control a 70% interest in the 
property. An underlying 2% NSR on the property is held by Xstrata Nickel, 
of which half can be purchased for $1,000,000. 
Rockcliff has the exclusive right to earn a 100% interest in the Dickstone 
Property from Xstrata Copper Canada, a division of Xstrata Canada Corporation 
(Xstrata). Rockcliff will be required to incur aggregate exploration 
expenditures totaling $3,500,000 over four years. If Rockcliff earns a 100% 
interest in the Dickstone Property, Xstrata then has a right to acquire up to 
a 70% interest in the Dickstone Property. Please refer to the press release 
dated February 22, 2011 for further details. 
Samples of half core are packaged and shipped directly from Rockcliff's field 
office to TSL Laboratories (TSL), Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. TSLis 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 
1AT charge. Rockcliff inserted certified blanks and standards in the 
sample stream to ensure lab integrity.

Lapierre P.Geo., President and CEO of Rockcliff Resources Inc., a Qualified 
Person in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements as set out in NI 
43-101.
