Hi Ho Silver Reports on Upcoming 2008 Exploration Program at Silver Tip Project, Kaslo, B.C.

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 25, 2008) -


Fred Fisher, President of Hi Ho Silver Resources Inc.("Hi Ho" or the "Company")(CNQ:HIHO)(FRANKFURT:H9T), reports on the upcoming 2008 exploration program at the Silver Tip Project (the "Property") located in southeastern British Columbia. The field portion of the 2008 program is scheduled to commence during the first week of July and will follow up results received from previous exploration programs conducted on the property. The program has been designed to follow up mineral showings identified from previous work, define additional showings and systematically explore recently acquired claims.

The upcoming 2008 program will consist of soil and rock sampling, geological mapping, trenching, opening up old workings, access road/trail construction, metallurgical work, prospecting, shallow drilling with portable drills and bulk sampling. The program will be supervised by James Thom, M.Sc., who brings a wealth of advanced geological expertise to the project. All other required field personnel and services have been secured.

The Silver Tip Property covers 2,600 hectares (26km2). There are no underlying royalties, agreements or further consideration due with respect to the Property.

The Property is located in the Kaslo area of British Columbia within the northeast section of the historic Slocan Silver Camp where more than 75,000,000 ounces of silver have been produced between 1892 and 1993. The Property presently hosts eight high-grade mineral showings, six of which have reported past production. These showings have been developed in the past by more than 1,850 feet (567m) of underground workings. The Silver Tip Property contains high-grade silver with assays ranging from 60 - 120 oz/ton (1.8kg/t - 3.6kg/t) silver, 40% - 80% lead and 1.25% - 6% zinc. The highest silver assay from the Property is 398 oz/ton (12.0 kg/t). Gold values obtained from the Evening Star area of the Property during the Company's 2007 exploration work yielded 10.7g/t gold with 61.6g/t silver, 16.24g/t Au with 133 g/t Ag and 21.9g/t Au with greater than 100g/t Ag. and zinc values range between 1.25% - 6.0%. While these assays do not conform to National Instrument 43-101 they have been provided by the Duncan Bain, P. Geo.,. and are generally considered reliable according to local industry standards.

Fred Fisher, President and CEO of the Company, states "Historically the property is under explored, and utilizing modern systematic exploration techniques to confirm and prove mineralized showings, we will be in a position to advance the Property towards defining a mineable resource." The technical information contained in this news release has been verified by Duncan Bain, P.Geo., a Canadian geologist who is a qualified person as defined in "National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Properties." We were also extremely pleased to recently acquire the adjacent Silver Patch Property as it covers a gold extension that was discovered last fall and which will be a focus of exploration this summer."

The Company also announces that further to its news release dated April 15, 2008, the Company and SCT Media have mutually agreed to amend the terms of the agreement between the parties to reduce the number of stock options to be granted to SCT Media from 250,000 to 200,000. All other terms and conditions between the parties remains essentially the same. In addition the Company would like to add that a previously announced finder's fee payable on a private placement of 44,000 shares was incorrect and the proper finder's fee is actually 40,000 shares.
