Art Freeze, P. Geo, Joins Board Of Soho Resources

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 20, 2007) - Soho Resources (TSX VENTURE:SOH) is pleased to announce the appointment of Art Freeze, P. Geo, to its Board of Directors.

Mr. Freeze brings to the company more than 38 years of experience in mineral exploration, mine development and project evaluation. He has held senior consulting, supervisory and management positions with both major and junior companies, including Cominco (now Teck Cominco), Pasminco Exploration, Echo Bay Mines and Pan American Silver Corp. He has extensive international experience - gained mostly in the Americas and in several former Soviet Republics - and is a member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia.

Mr. Freeze is currently President of Stillwater Enterprises Limited and the primary Consulting Geologist for Goldcorp Inc., one of the world's largest gold and silver producers. During the past 4.5 years, he has evaluated more than 75 Mexican properties held by Luismin, a wholly owned subsidiary of Goldcorp, and selected 20 of these for option and joint venture to a number of junior resource companies.

"We are pleased that Mr. Freeze has agreed to join our Board of Directors," said Soho President Ralph Shearing. "His extensive experience and knowledge of Mexico will benefit our ongoing efforts to advance the Tahuehueto Project to pre-feasibility."

Mr. Shearing thanked outgoing director Mark Backens for his many contributions to Soho Resources during the past year. "His technical and corporate expertise helped guide the Company through an exciting yet challenging period of transition to advanced exploration." Mr. Backens joined Soho's Board of Directors as a representative of Macquarie North America, but resigned this position following his recent departure from Macquarie.

"I have enjoyed assisting the Soho team and look forward to further development of Tahuehueto," Mr. Backens said. "I remain very enthusiastic about the project and will continue to be a strong supporter of the Company's efforts as Hall Stewart, Vice-President of Exploration, applies his skills to the ongoing exploration program."

Soho Resources holds a 90% interest in the Tahuehueto poly-metallic project in Durango State, Mexico. Exploration to date has confirmed the presence of at least 12 mineralized zones within a structurally controlled epithermal system traced for 6 km.

Along with the $3.6-million drilling program to define gold-silver resources within five priority zones, Soho Resources is conducting prospecting and exploration programs to test other zones and targets at the 8,894-hectare project.
