Rochester Engages Empire Communications Inc. as its Investors Relations Representative

 Vancouver, Canada - Rochester Resources Ltd. (TSXV: RCT; OTCBB: RCTFF and Frankfurt: R5I):
Douglas Good, President, is pleased to announce that the Company has retained Empire Communications Inc. ("Empire") of Vancouver, BC, as its investor relation's representative effective December 1, 2006. The principal of Empire is Frank Taggart, a Vancouver based entrepreneur who has been operating in the investor relations and business development consulting business since 1996. Mr. Taggart has focused on corporate development, funding and building companies primarily in the resource and energy technology fields. He has a strong background in corporate governance, finance, as well as all other aspects of business development. The investor relations program will focus on shareholder communications, corporate development and building the Company an active following of investment professionals in North America and, to a lesser extent, Europe.

Empire, which is arm's length to the Company, has been retained for an initial term of 6 months and, thereafter, on a month-to-month basis. Its remuneration will be a monthly fee of $6,000 plus an incentive stock option to purchase 150,000 common shares at $1.40 per share for a period of three years subject to the vesting provisions of Policy 4.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange. The Company's previous investor relations contract with Accent Marketing Ltd. has expired.

Rochester is in the final phase of constructing a 200 tonnes/day conventional mill near the Mina Real mine which is expected to be in operation in December 2006. The mill has a modular design which will allow for an increase in capacity to 300+ tonnes/day at a reasonable incremental cost once mining operations are scaled up to support this volume of mill feed.

The longer term strategy is to continue to acquire gold/silver properties located in Mexico with the indicated potential for near-term production in the range of 200-500 tonnes/day and good exploration potential for the generation of a significant resource base. Based on the results of bulk samples mined to date totaling just under 10,000 tonnes and the grades of the channel samples taken from development mining completed in 2006 on the Mina Real Project, management believes this strategic property has potential to produce a long-term revenue stream which would set the stage for the acquisition and development of a series of similar size mining and milling operations in the region.
