VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2009) - Minco Silver Corporation (the "Company" or "Minco Silver") (TSX:MSV) is pleased to provide an update on the status of the feasibility study on its Fuwan Silver Project. Since the first quarter of 2009, all of the key parameters of the project have been finalized. Wardrop Engineering Inc. ("Wardrop") and China Nerin Engineering Co. Ltd. ("NERIN") have been progressing on their respective aspects of the study. As well, Environmental Resource Management ("ERM") has been advancing the EIA which forms a part of the feasibility study.

On September 9 and 10, the Company held a conference in Nanchang whereby the highlights of the feasibility study were presented to a Chinese panel of experts. This panel approved the study which allows the company to proceed with the completion of the report. As well, with this approval, the Mine Development Plan can now be prepared, which is a key step to secure the Mining License.
