Klondike Silver Corp. Samples 17.59% Pb, 1.12% Zn, 687g/tonne Ag and Completes 10 Trenches in Jackson Basin

- BOULDER FOUND IN TRENCH 3, WEST OF JACKSON MINE WORKINGS, ASSAYED 72.42% PB, 2.41%ZN, 2895G/TONNE SILVER - MINERALIZED QUARTZ VEINS DISCOVERED IN FIVE TRENCHES

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 22, 2009) - Klondike Silver Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KS) (the "Company") is pleased to report that it has received assays for a number of samples taken from a number of recently completed trenches in the Jackson Basin. The Jackson Basin Area, which includes the historic Jackson Mine, was discovered in 1892. Mining continued until 1955, followed by intermittent operations until 1975.

"We are encouraged by the high assay values found in a number of trenches, especially from trenches 8 and 10 which are believed to be the eastern extension of the Jackson lode structure," comments Klondike Silver President, Richard Hughes. "Results received from this program and other recently completed trenches will be used to guide our next phase of exploration."

Trenching Summary:

- Trench 3 uncovered a 20cm diameter boulder of mainly galena which contained 72.42% Pb, 2.41%Zn, 2895g/tonne Ag. (JB09-09). Trench 3 is located west of the Jackson mine workings.

- Trench 5 had a fault zone with samples assaying up to 17.59% Pb, 1.12% Zn, 687g/tonne Ag. (JB09-T05-R03) A thin quartz vein offset by the fault contained 8.13% Pb, 3.91% Zn, 377g/tonne Ag. (JB09-T05-R04).

- Trench 10, 8m along strike from the mineralized zone in Trench 8, showed variable mineralization. Samples from the zone yielded values up to 5.01% Pb, 2.40% Zn and 124g/tonne Ag. The zone is believed to be the eastern extension of the Jackson lode structure which mined 5847 tonnes at average grades of 14.65%Pb, 10.92%Zn and 531g/tonne Ag.

- Trench 8 revealed a shear zone approximately 2.6m wide with extensional quartz veins hosting lead and zinc mineralization. Chip samples across the zone assayed up to 6.85% Pb, 6.42% Zn and 204 g/tonne Ag (see table below):
