In 2007, Avino drilled 40 holes on its Mexican property totalling 8537.70 metres. For results of holes SG-07-01 through SG-07-08 on the San Gonzalo Zone, please see news release dated March 26, 2007.

We are currently awaiting assay results for holes GAP-07-01 through GAP-07-03 in the Gap Zone, GPE-07-01 on the Guadalupe Vein, SJ-07-01 on the intersection of the San Jose - La Estela - Aguila Mexicana vein systems and holes ST-07-03 through ST-07-07 on the Santiago Vein.

Sample lengths of the NQ drill core were diamond sawed into halves by mine staff and shipped to Inspectorate Labs in Durango, Mexico, for preparation into pulps and rejects. Pulps were analyzed at Inspectorate Labs in Sparks, Nevada. Gold and silver were analyzed by fire assay using Aqua Regia Leach and AA finish. Other elements are reported from a 29 element I.C.P. package.

Avino is now focusing on drilling the San Gonzalo vein system in order to establish a drill indicated resource for San Gonzalo. The Company has also recently completed building a new drill core storage facility which will store in excess of 40,000 metres of core.

This report was prepared by Chris J. Sampson, P. Eng., a qualified person under NI 43-101.

Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd., founded in 1968, has established a long record of mining and exploration. The Company's focus is the acquisition and aggressive exploration of top silver prospects throughout North America. Avino remains well funded with no debt.
