Argentum Makes Final Option Payment
April 30, 2012: Vancouver, B.C.: Argentum Silver Corp. ("Argentum" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has made the final payment under its option agreement with Soltoro Ltd. (SOL:TSX.V) dated April 25, 2011. The payment, consisting of 3,500,000 common shares and CDN $120,000 in cash, was made to Soltoro towards the acquisition of the Coyote and Victoria silver gold properties in Jalisco State, Mexico. Soltoro now holds a total of 6,300,000 shares of Argentum Silver (approximately 15% of the outstanding shares of Argentum Silver).
The Company recently announced completion of the first phase, 25 diamond drill hole program on its' Coyote property. A total of 2,686 metres were drilled on the four identified vein zones: 11 holes on the El Tajo zone, seven holes on the La Florida zone, four holes on the Bocancha zone and three holes on the La Colorada zone. The original drill program called for 19 holes to be drilled; however, the high grades intercepted in hole 2012-3, which included 2.0 metres of 2,745 grams per tonne silver, and in hole 2012-7, which included 1.2 metres of 1,645 grams per tonne silver, encouraged the company to increase the number of holes drilled to 25.
The Company released the results from the first 7 drill holes on February 29 and March 6, 2012. Assay results on the remaining 18 holes will be released once they have been received and interpreted by the Company.
