June 11, 2011 – Soltoro Ltd. (SOL:TSX.V) Ltd. (SOL:TSX.V) and Argentum Silver Corp. (ASL:TSX:V) are pleased to announce assay results from eight additional diamond drill holes recently completed on the El Tajo and Bocancha veins at the Coyote silver gold property, located in Jalisco State, Mexico.
Highlights include 5.2 metres of 438 g/t silver from hole 2012-23 including 2.0 metres of 899 g/t silver. Hole 2012-22 also intersected a second, shallower vein grading 1.0 metre of 424 g/t silver. Highlights of the El Tajo and Bocancha drill holes are as follows:
*Drill holes 2012-15, 2012-16, 2012-21, 2012-24 did not intercept significant assay values
**True widths are estimated to be roughly 70% of drill intercept length.
Drill holes 2012-10, 2012-22 and 2012-23 indicate the El Tajo vein hosts the potential for further bonanza-style silver grades at depth. Highlights of previously released drill holes 2012-1 through 2012-7 at El Tajo include intercepts of 2.0 metres of 2,745 g/t silver in hole 2012-3 and 1.20 metres of 1,645 g/t silver in hole 2012-7. To date, a total of 11 holes have been drilled at the El Tajo vein, which has been tested over a 500 metres strike length. Complete highlights from the previous seven drill holes are available in NR122 dated February 29, 2012 and NR125 dated March 6, 2012.
Andrew Thomson, President and C.E.O. of Soltoro Ltd., stated: At Coyote, drilling has intercepted significant widths of high-grade silver mineralization below the known historic mine workings. Further drilling is planned by Argentum Silver to test the structure at depth and along strike to investigate increasing the tonnage potential.
The 1,053 hectare Coyote property contains dozens of individual low sulfidation epithermal silver-gold veins and stockwork. Most of the mineralization occurs within six defined zones within an area of approximately 1.5 by 2.6 kilometres. Vein widths typically range from 1 to over 5 metres. Local areas of stockwork can exceed 35 metres in width. Over 100 historic workings and prospects explored and partially developed the district through the early 1900´s. Historic production concentrated on bonanza silver grades with operational depth limitations due to the high water table.
Equity held in ASL & royalty held on the Coyote property:

Mr. Steven T. Priesmeyer, C.P.G., Vice President of Exploration for Soltoro Ltd. and a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101 has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this press release. Assaying from this program was completed by ALS Chemex through their office in Guadalajara, Mexico. Analytical procedures include a 33-element ICP-AES analysis (ME- ICP61m) and a 50 g FA AA finish for gold (AA-24). Silver assays exceeding 100 g/t are re-assayed by HCL leach with an ICP-AES or AAS finish (OG62 ).
