Andrew Thomson, President and C.E.O. of Soltoro Ltd., stated: "Soltoro has extended sulphide mineralization over 200 metres along strike below the Las Bolas deposit. Mineralization remains open along strike in both directions and at depth. This represents an exciting new target type for Soltoro and presents an opportunity to continue to build the silver resource with high-grade mineralization."

RAY12-152 and the four holes drilled along strike and the step-out hole completed in this area were located on the basis of a new structural and geochemical interpretation, which lead to the identification of a series of fault blocks that allowed a tentative quantification of relative fault movement. RAY12-152 was the first drill hole intended to intersect deep mineralization that had been brought closer to the surface through faulting. Sulphide mineralization has now been intersected in all four holes drilled along strike demonstrating continuity for 200 metres. Results for drill hole RAY13-158 drilled 50 metres north of Ray12-152 are still pending however sulphide mineralization has been confirmed visually. Infill drilling will be required on some sections to bring the Las Bolas sulphide mineralization into the resource.
Hole RAY13-155 was drilled below hole RAY12-152 and did not intersect a sulphide zone but sulphide fragments are present in a fault zone suggesting that sulphides were originally present but have been removed in this area due to faulting. Sulphides remain open along strike in both directions and at depth.
Hole RAY13-157 was drilled at the south end of the Las Bolas structure in the Matachines area to test the down-dip extension of sulphide mineralization intersected in hole Ray11-65. Sulphides in this area are different in character from those in to the north and the relationship between the two zones is not well understood. Results are pending.
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.
