Orko Silver Continues to Hit Major Silver-Gold Intercepts at La Preciosa

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 4, 2007) - Orko Silver Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OK) is pleased to announce that it has received further assay results from the current diamond drilling program on La Preciosa Project in Durango, Mexico.

Of particular note are the major widths and high grades in the Abundancia and Martha veins in "Mina La Preciosa" sector from drill hole BP07-103. The Abundancia Vein yielded 11.76 metres grading Au 0.082 g/t and Ag 383.6 g/t, for a silver-equivalent of 388.5 g/t. It includes four samples over 1 kg Ag for 1.54 metres grading Au 0.346 g/t and Ag 2,050.1 g/t, for a silver-equivalent of 2,070.9 g/t.

The Martha Vein hit for 23.17 metres grading Au 0.532 g/t and Ag 216.5 g/t, for a silver-equivalent of 248.4 g/t. It includes 6.38 metres grading Au 0.869 g/t and Ag 433.6 g/t, for a silver-equivalent of 485.7 g/t.

Gary Cope, President of Orko, adds, "Last month we reported the assay results for Hole 102, which at the time was the best hole ever drilled at La Preciosa. With the reporting of the results from Hole 103 and its major intercepts in both Abundancia and Martha Veins, Hole 103 now becomes best hole ever drilled at La Preciosa. Cumulatively, the results we have been consistently reporting are significant, impressive and improving. This gives us ever increasing confidence that we will achieve our objectives at La Preciosa. We are continuing to drill at a brisk pace and are looking forward to reporting further results as they become available."

Significant intercepts have been received for all five holes presented in this report.

Hole BP06-88 is located in "La Preciosa Norte Sector", north of La Preciosa Ridge, on mine-section 15,700 N. It was drilled at 090 degrees azimuth and -45 degrees dip. This hole is collared 100 m east of hole BP06-80. While the Abundancia vein is clearly a significant structure in this hole and it is mineralized throughout, only the bottom portion is in ore grade.

Due to the use of two certified analytical labs, with different times to delivery of results, and the difference in speed of drilling of the two drill rigs, the announcement of drill results will be out of numeric sequence for some of the drill holes. All drill results will be announced and reported as received.

Silver-equivalent for the purposes of this drilling program is defined as silver grade plus 60 times gold grade. Metallurgical recoveries and net smelter returns are assumed to be 100%.
