VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2007) - Oro Silver Resources Ltd. ("Oro Silver") (TSX VENTURE:OSR) has completed its previously announced non-brokered private placement in the amount of 3,538,054 units at a price of $0.90 per unit for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,184,248.60. Each unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share of Oro Silver at a price of $1.25 per share during the first year or $1.50 per share during the second year after the date of issuance.

The securities are subject to a hold period and may not be traded before April 21, 2008, except as permitted by Canadian securities legislation and the TSX Venture Exchange. Finder's fees totalling $89,400 were paid to Haywood Securities Inc., Canaccord Capital Corporation and Macquarie Bank Limited.

Oro Silver intends to use the proceeds of the private placement to continue property acquisitions in Zacatecas, Mexico, to accelerate exploration at its properties, and for general corporate purposes.

Oro Silver's strategy is to become a mid-tier silver producer through an aggressive acquisition and development plan focused on advanced-stage projects with known silver resources that exhibit potential for expansion. While becoming a major player in the Zacatecas silver district, Oro Silver will continue its growth through exploring and developing primary silver deposits in Mexico and North America.
