TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 2, 2008) - Soltoro Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SOL) is pleased to announce the release of its results for the year ended December 31, 2007. The Company's audited financial statements and Management Discussion and Analysis can be found at or on SEDAR at

Operational Highlights:

- Topographic survey complete on the Las Bolas structure at El Rayo with a view to further drilling to expand the historical silver-gold-lead resource.

- Induced Polarization chargeability targets at La Tortuga chosen for drilling in January of 2008. La Tortuga currently optioned to Sumitomo Metal Mining Exploration Corp.

Financial Highlights:

The Company ended the period with $1,443,791 in cash and short term investments and working capital of $1,661,254 as at December 31, 2007. This compares with cash and term deposits of $2,749,924 and working capital of $2,740,338 at December 31, 2006. The change in the Company's cash position reflects a private placement of units in the proceeds which raised gross proceeds of $650,000, offset by spending on operations and exploration on the Company's mining properties. The Company's net loss for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $737,146 (or $0.04 per share), compared to a loss of $320,503 (or $0.03 per share) in 2006.
