TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/17/13 -- Soltoro Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: SOL) has received positive gold and silver assay results from ongoing mapping and sampling at its 100% owned Tecolote Project in Jalisco, Mexico. The 3,052 hectare Tecolote Project is located less than 10 kilometres north of Soltoro's El Rayo primary silver project and 10 kilometres northeast of Grupo Mexico S.A.B. de C.V.'s El Barqueno property currently optioned to Cayden Resources Inc.

The Carmelita vein system has now been traced for over 100 metres at surface where recent sampling returned numerous high-grade gold and silver values including 27.70 g/t gold and 641 g/t silver over 0.7 metres. A recently completed ground magnetic survey over the Carmelita zone suggests the structure hosting the vein has a strike length of 550 metres. Further mapping and sampling are planned at Carmelita to establish the strike extent of the structure. Selected results from recent sampling are as follows:

In the La Fundicion area, mineralization has been traced for an aggregate strike length of over 1,500 metres in the Asuncion-Venado and Victoria vein systems. Highlights include 10.25 g/t Au and 28 g/t Ag over 1.00 metre and 2.39 g/t Ag and 25 g/t Ag over 3.50 metres from the Asuncion-Venado vein system, and 8.08 g/t Au and 20 g/t Ag over 0.80 metres from the Victoria vein system.

In the Tecolote area, the San Eusebio, Veta Grande and Kassandra vein systems have been traced for an aggregate strike length of over one kilometre. Highlights include 5.74 g/t Au and 48 g/t Ag over 1.00 metre from the San Eusebio system and 1.91 g/t Au and 21 g/t Ag over 6.00 metres from the Veta Grande system.

Andrew Thomson, President and C.E.O. of Soltoro Ltd., stated: "Soltoro mapping and sampling continues to yield high-grade gold silver values at Tecolote. Further ground magnetic surveys will be carried out to better define the extent of known vein systems while the remainder of the property will be explored through continued mapping and sampling. Permitting required for trenching and drilling programs is underway."

Mineralization at Tecolote is typical of low-sulphidation epithermal deposits. Currently known gold and silver vein systems consist of discrete veins and stockwork zones containing quartz, pyrite and base metal sulphides along with associated oxidation products. Lead and zinc values, primarily in the La Fundicion and Carmelita areas, locally exceed one percent. Given the high grades and narrow widths, Soltoro views Tecolote as a potential underground mine target.

Assaying is done by ALS-Chemex through their office in Guadalajara, Mexico. Gold was analyzed using a 30g fire assay with AA finish while the silver is analyzed using a four acid "near total" digestion package, lead overlimits were analyzed using volumetric titration.
