Klondike Silver Corp. Completes Drilling at Hewitt-Van Roi


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 26, 2009) - Klondike Silver Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KS) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of the first phase of a drilling program testing in the Hewitt – Van Roi area in the southern part of the Slocan camp. Four holes have been drilled in the first-phase of this program to test for extension of structures and mineralization to the west, beyond the known workings. Upon completion of these initial holes the Company may initiate a second phase, dependent on results and weather limitations. Due to the high elevation of the target area the second phase may be postponed until the following spring. The Company is also drilling underground in the past producing Silvana Mine.

The Hewitt - Van Roi exploration area includes the past-producing Hewitt and Van Roi Mines, which produced approximately 400,000 tonnes averaging 300.5 g/t silver and 2.8% lead (Van Roi) and 529 g/t silver and 1.5% lead (Hewitt). During the 2009 spring/summer regional exploration program the Company completed a number of soil grids and geophysical surveys, focusing on the area immediately west of the Hewitt Mine. Targets identified from these surveys are guiding the current program.

Several holes defined small structures, one containing minor sulphides, that paralleled the Hewitt vein system. The final hole in this initial phase discovered a wide structural zone, on strike with the Hewitt vein and believed to the extension of the lode system. Further drilling of this structure is warranted, in order to locate potential mineralization within it.

Data collected from drilling will be compiled and used in the planning of the Company's 2010 spring/summer regional exploration program.
