Oro Gold Resources Ltd. ("Oro Gold") (TSX VENTURE:OGR) has established Thursday, February 8, 2007, as the expected effective date for completion of the previously announced plan of arrangement which will see certain silver-based assets transferred to Oro Silver Resources Ltd. ("Oro Silver") in exchange for units of Oro Silver being issued to shareholders of Oro Gold. Oro Silver expects to complete a financing and has applied to have its shares listed on the TSX Venture Exchange shortly after the completion of the plan of arrangement.

Oro Silver has engaged Haywood Securities Inc. (the "Agent") to complete a private placement of up to 2,900,000 common shares of Oro Silver at a price of $0.35 per share for gross proceeds of up to $1,015,000. In consideration for their services, the Agent will receive a cash commission of 7.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of the shares and be paid a corporate finance fee of $10,000. In addition, Oro Silver will issue to the Agent compensation options exercisable for common shares equal in number to 10% of the number of common shares sold under the private placement at an exercise price of $0.35 per common share for a period of 12 months after the closing of the private placement.
