Oro Silver Announces Joint Venture With Silvrex on Mihuatlan Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA–(EMWNews – July 21, 2008) – Oro Silver Resources Ltd. (“Oro Silver”) (TSX VENTURE:OSR) announce that it has executed the formal agreement with Silvrex Ltd. (“Silvrex”) whereby Silvrex can acquire a 60% interest in the Mihuatlan property from Oro Silver by spending US$3.0 million on exploration at the property and issuing one million ordinary shares of Silvrex to Oro Silver over a three year period.

A National Instrument 43-101 report, entitled “Technical Report for the Mihuatlan Property, Mexico State, Mexico”, is available on Oro Silver’s website at This report presents the technical work completed to date and the recommended exploration program to test the defined targets.

A historic resource of approximately 10 million ounces of silver (1 million tonnes at 300 g/t silver and 1 g/t gold) was reported at Mihuatlan by the Mexican government (Consejo de Recursos Minerales, Mexico) in the 1980’s based on the completion of 70 core holes. Significant drill intercepts include 4.4 metres of 670 g/t silver and 1 g/t gold, and 9.6 metres of 147 g/t silver (downhole length). Oro Silver views the historic resource as an indication of the occurrence of mineralized rocks only, as the resource is not compliant with National Instrument 43-101 guidelines.

“This transaction is an example of Oro Silver’s aggressive growth strategy to quickly advance its assets. This agreement with Silvrex also demonstrates our intent to associate ourselves with other quality explorers that can provide capital to advance our properties and deliver results for our shareholders,” stated Mr. Herve Thiboutot, Chief Executive Officer & Vice-President Exploration of Oro Silver.

Oro Silver has ownership in over 46 concessions in Mexico, mostly located in the states of Zacatecas, Mexico, and Sinaloa; some of these concessions are available for option.

Oro Silver exploration programs are supervised by Mr. Herve Thiboutot, P. Eng., Chief Executive Officer and Vice-President of Exploration. Mr. Thiboutot is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, and has reviewed the content of this press release.
