Silver Shield Resources Reports on Activities at the Welsh Silver Mine and Wilder Duggan Properties, Elk Lake, Ontario

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - Silver Shield Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SSR) ("Silver Shield" or "the Company") today announced that the Company has made its 2008 $ 30,000 payment on the Wilder Duggan silver property, which surrounds the Thompson mine, located in Elk Lake, Ontario.

The Company is currently drilling its 2,000 metre phase II diamond drill program on the Welsh Silver Mine property, starting in the area southeast of the Welsh Mine. This area lies south of Amador Gold Corp's Silverclaim Lake property where a September 2007 drill program returned high grade silver intersections, including an intersection of 506 g/t Ag over 2.32 metres on hole SC07-12. Assay results from the initial drill holes are expected shortly. Upon completion of the phase II program at the Welsh Mine, Silver Shield will move the drill rig to commence drilling at the Wilder Duggan property.

The planned Wilder Duggan drill program is designed to confirm the reported historical values, and discover and expand new silver targets. Interpretations of geology and geophysics have identified priority drill targets on the property. Phase I of the diamond drilling program is expected to commence in the summer of 2008. Interpretation of these drill hole results will determine the direction for phase two of the exploration. There are three known shafts, and seven silver-cobalt-nickel showings identified to date on the Wilder Duggan property. Historical vein samples have ran as high as 280 oz/t silver, and historical values exhibit shaft rock dump material grading 4.97 oz/t silver, as well as trench sampling 300 feet northeast of the shaft showing 223 oz/t silver. Management believes these values to be reliable, however, investors are cautioned these values are historic and represent the range of values that may be encountered.

Silver Shield's corporate strategy has always been to acquire quality silver projects that are in advanced stages beyond grassroots exploration, with the potential to be developed into producing properties.
