Rochester Closes Canaccord Financing and Proceeds Agressively with its 2006 Mine Development and Exploration Program

 Vancouver, Canada - Rochester Resources Ltd. (TSXV: RCT and OTCBB: RCTFF):
The Company is pleased to announce that it has closed the short form offering financing of $720,000 with Canaccord Capital Corporation ("Canaccord") acting as agent as previously announced on February 21, 2006. The offering consisted of 1,000,000 units ("Units") with each Unit consisting of one common share and one Warrant. Each Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one additional common share at an exercise price of $0.80 per share until May 3, 2008. Cash commissions, agent warrants and corporate finance fees as set out in the February News Release were paid to Canaccord. The net proceeds received by the Company from this offering, along with the proceeds from the exercise of any of the up to 2,725,000 warrants at $0.65 expiring on May 7, 2006, will be used to fund on-going work programs on the Company's Mina Real Property, to fund new property investigations and acquisitions, and for general working capital purposes.

An aggressive exploration and development work program is now underway and management expects that the road extension to the Tajos Cuates vein structure should be completed and the Phase 1 drill program on the Mina Real Property commenced by mid-May 2006. Drift development at the Florida mine site of the Mina Real Property has commenced and is progressing at the rate of approximately 5 meters per day in each of two adits.

Management expects to complete the executive planning and approval process for the construction of up to a 300 ton/day conventional milling operation by the end of May 2006 and to commence construction of the mill and related infrastructure shortly thereafter, subject to receipt of final environmental approvals and equipment availability.

Negotiations are also underway to acquire additional advanced mineral properties in the area.
