Hi Ho Silver Resources Inc.: Two Holes Completed on Carmi Moly Project

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 9, 2007) -


Hi Ho Silver Resources Inc. ("Hi Ho Silver Resources" or the "Company")(CNQ:HIHO)(FWB:H9T) wishes to announce the completion of two drill holes of its ongoing drill program on the Carmi Moly Project located in southcentral British Columbia and to provide general property update.

On December 5, 2006, Beaupre Drilling Ltd. of Princeton, BC commenced a 2,000 metre diamond drill program on the Company's Carmi Moly Project. Two holes were completed before drilling was temporarily suspended due to unusually severe winter weather conditions. Drilling is expected to resume early February and assay results from the two completed holes are expected late January. Since September 2006, Hi Ho has spent approximately $375,000 dollars on 3-D IP geophysical surveying, diamond drilling and engineering.

The first two holes (06-190 and 06-091) were drilled in the Lake Zone. Drill hole 06-190 was drilled to parallel diamond drill hole 76-V-18 which was drilled in 1976. Hole 76-V-18 was chosen to check because it had assayed rather high molybdenite over its entire length (0.107% MoS2 over 173.74 metres) and ended in mineralization Hole 06-190 was drilled vertically to a depth of 191 metres. It intersected the Lake Zone breccia almost continually from surface to 140 metres depth. Molybdenite mineralization was present in trace or greater amounts throughout much of this section.

Drill hole 06-191 was drilled to test a strong IP chargeability anomaly at depth within the Lake Zone. This hole was drilled with an azimuth of 200 degrees at an inclination of -50 degrees from the horizontal. The hole was completed to a depth of just over 400 metres.

All drill core was logged and sampled at a secure core logging facility at Beaverdell. Core has been shipped to Acme Laboratories in Vancouver, BC for analysis and results are expected late January.

The next round of drilling will test geophysical anomalies C1 and C2 on the western edge of the E Zone.

The objective of the program is to test a variety of geophysical targets and twin two of the better mineralized drill holes from previous drill programs.

Hi Ho Silver is still awaiting the final version of the IP geophysical report from S.J. Geophysics Ltd. of Delta BC.

Under ther terms of the Property Option Agreement with St. Elias Mines Ltd., Hi Ho must expend $400,000 on exploration expenditures on or before December 31, 2006. As of December 31, 2006 Hi Ho incurred $375,000 in exploration expenditures. St. Elias has granted an extension to Hi Ho until February 28, 2007 to complete this $400,000 expenditure.
