Silver Bull Makes New Discovery and Intercepts 13.25 Meters of Massive Sulphide Grading 9.05% Zinc, 2.12% Lead and 16g/t Silver, Including 5.85 Meters Grading 11.93% Zinc, 2.83% Lead and 24g/t Silver in Coahuila, Mexico

Tim Barry, President, CEO and director of Silver Bull states, ‘Four of the five holes announced in this news release are focused within the Palomas Negros area.

The Palomas Negros area has never been assessed with modern exploration techniques and has long been recognized as an exciting target to be followed up. Work is ongoing to fully understand the controls on the mineralization at Palomas Negros, but to get a high grade intercept over 13.25 meters in a first pass drill pass drill program is very encouraging, especially so close to surface.’
