March 6th, 2012 – Soltoro Ltd. (SOL:TSX-V) and Argentum Silver Corp.(ASL:TSX-V) are pleased to announce assay results from three additional diamond drill holes completed on the El Tajo vein at the Coyote property located in Jalisco, Mexico.
Highlights include 2.4 metres of 900 g/t silver from hole 2012-7, including 1.2 metres grading 1,645 g/t silver. This hole also hit a second vein grading 403 g/t silver over 2.5 metres. Highlights of holes numbered 2012-5 through 2012-7 are as follows:
*True widths are estimated to be roughly 70% of drill intercept length..
The three angled holes ranged from 88.9 to 127.4 metres in depth, for a total of 330.7 metres. Argentum Silver has now tested a total of 420 metres of the strike of the El Tajo vein. An eighth drill hole has been completed on the El Tajo vein approximately 50 metres south of hole 2012-7, and Argentum Silver is awaiting assay results from that hole. The first phase program will also test portions of three other mineralized zones within the property area, including La Florida, Bocancha and La Colorada.
Highlights from drill holes 2012-1 through 2012-4 included an intercept of 2,745 g/t silver over 2.0 metres in hole 2012-3. Results from these four holes are available at: http://www.soltoro.com/news/pdf/NR122.pdf
The 1053-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 x 2.6 kilometres. Vein widths typically range from 1 to over 5 metres. Zones of stockwork have locally been mapped over widths exceeding 35 metres. Over one hundred historic workings and prospects explored and partially developed the district through the early 1900´s. Historic production concentrated on bonanza silver grades with operational depths limited by the high water table.
