"Historic high-grade lead-zinc-silver veins in conjunction with never before tested VTEM anomalies make the Cleaver Central property a top priority in Klondike Silver's Ontario exploration plans," comments Company President, Richard Hughes. "It is not yet known whether a relationship exists between these historic veins and the VTEM anomalies, but given their proximity to one another, immediate exploration is warranted. This is an exciting acquisition for the Company as it continues to diversify its portfolio in order to gain maximum exposure to both precious and base metal markets. Drilling has now commenced on our joint-ventured Espiritu property in Mexico and we will soon be providing an update on our Sandon operations, where recent underground drilling has located what is believed to be an extension of the camp's 'Main Lode' structure. We look forward to advancing these properties as well as the Cleaver Central property into 2010 and beyond."

Consideration for the property consists of $105,000 and 400,000 shares, payable over 36 months. There is a 3% net smelter return payable, of which one-third (1%) may be purchased for $1,000,000. A further 100,000 common shares are issuable upon completion of a positive feasibility study.

Klondike Silver plans to carry out ground geophysical and prospecting surveys to assess potential relationships between the mineralization found in historic veins and the VTEM geophysical anomalies.
