Argentum Completes Due Diligence on Soltoro Silver-Gold Projects in Jalisco, Mexico
April 6, 2011: Vancouver, B.C.: Argentum Silver Corp. ("Argentum" or the "Company") announces that it has completed its due diligence review of Soltoro Ltd's (SOL:TSX-V) Victoria and Coyote silver-gold projects located in Jalisco, Mexico, which are the subject of a letter of intent (the "LOI") between the parties, and is now proceeding with the negotiation of definitive option agreements on these properties. Further information regarding these projects is available in the Company's news release dated March 7, 2011.
Warren McIntyre, President and C.E.O. of Argentum, stated: "Our geological team, led by Country Manager Juan Lopez, has spent the previous week on both properties. They have taken samples and perused historical data on each property and recommended to the board of directors of Argentum that we proceed with an exploration and drilling program on each of the properties."
Mr. Lopez added "The properties look excellent. There are numerous outcroppings and surface veins identifiable on the Coyote property. The Victoria property is significantly larger with an old mine on site and a small working mill. The La Lupita mine is currently in private operation at a rate of about 50 tonnes per day, and has historically produced an average grade of 16 grams per ton of gold and over 500 grams per ton silver. There is great potential on both these sites."
