(Vancouver, November 14, 2018) – Rokmaster Resources Corp. (the "Company") is pleased to announce that results have been tabulated and interpreted from a recently completed geochemical soil sample survey, taken over a 4.5km long section of the Duncan anticline.
A total of 188 soil samples were obtained from the property in July 2018. The sampling program was designed to further test favorable target horizons for silver-lead-zinc mineralization within the Duncan Anticline. Sampling was conducted along contour lines and along short grid lines that cross the favorable geology for a distance of 3.1km.
Soil samples were sent to MS Analytical Labs, an ISOMEK accredited laboratory with ISO 9001 certification, located in Langley, BC. The samples were analyzed for 39 elements by the lab's Ultra-Trace level IMS-117 method with ICP-MS analysis.
Soil sampling returned significant elevated results for silver, lead, and zinc. These results roughly define a trend of elevated metal values in soil within the southern and northern extents of sampling. In particular, contour sampling that was completed to the south returned high lead and zinc values over a sampling distance of 1.3km, with values typically in the 1000 to 5000 parts per million (ppm) range, and including values over 10,000 ppm for lead and zinc (the laboratory upper limit for those elements).
To the north, seven grid lines of approximately 300 metres length were sampled. Elevated lead and zinc values were returned from two or more adjacent soil samples on six of these lines, indicating a zone width of approximately 75 to 150 metres over the 700 metres of sampled length.
Silver values returned from soil sampling were mostly in the order of 0.01 to 1 ppm, with several samples returning higher values up to 2.21 ppm associated with the higher lead and zinc values.
The soil sampling further outlines mineralized zones that were previously documented by workers of the property. In particular, the southern contour line extends across mineralized zones No.1 and No.2, whereas the northern grid sampling extends across mineralized zone No.3.
The results of the 2018 soil sampling program are highly encouraging and continue to produce targets for further work.
Maps of the soil sample survey and rock sampling, with assay and geochemical results plotted, will soon be posted on the Company website.
An excavator trenching and channel sampling program is being planned and permitted for the target anomalies.
Non-Brokered Private Placement
The Company announces that it intends to complete a non-brokered private placement (the "Private Placement") for proceeds of up to $900,000 through the issuance of 9,000,000 units at a price of $0.10 per unit (the "Units').

In accordance with the Investment Dealer Exemption, the Company advises that, as at the date hereof, there is no material fact or material change in respect of the Company that has not been generally disclosed. The Company further advises that there is no minimum number of units being offered pursuant to the Private Placement.
