VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 16, 2009) - Klondike Silver Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:KS) is pleased to announce it has negotiated a new contract with a regional smelter to process material from their mine and mill site at Sandon, BC. The contract was negotiated with a smelter basic treatment charge more than 10% less than the previous contract. The contract is for the month of December 2009 and all of 2010.

Concentrate milled from the 4755 level will be shipped commencing December 20th with monthly shipments to be continued. Management plans to continue test mining while conducting further underground exploration in the Silvana, Wonderful and Hinckley mines. The concentrate from the material will be shipped to smelter subject to an agreed upon schedule.

The Company will continue its vigorous regional exploration program with emphasis being placed on locating and recovering zinc zones previously ignored due to low prices or penalties being assessed. Management team is pleased with the progress being made in the Silvery Slocan and looks forward to building on its successes.

Custom Milling

KS has been asked to custom mill material from a mine located within 100 miles of the Sandon mill. This milling will take place as soon as all ministry requirements have been met. Custom milling of this material is expected to bring considerable revenue to the Company. Material from the Sandon operation will continue to be the priority for the mill.
