Corporate Update: Soltera Mining Corp. Further Defines its Major Golden Opportunity

JUJUY, ARGENTINA--(Marketwire - April 16, 2008) - Soltera Mining Corp. (OTCBB:SLTA)(FRANKFURT:SN7) - Based on numerous shareholder and investor enquiries, Soltera wishes to further define its El Torno gold property in Argentina. The property consists of mining rights covering 7,863 hectares, containing a 14 km long north-south gold-quartz vein system with an identified 2 km section containing a gold-rich zone on the western side of the vein carrying up to 37 gpt (grams per ton) gold and identified stockwork systems in the country rock with up to 112 gpt gold (based on previous non-NI-43-101 compliant reports).

President and CEO, Dr. Fabio Montanari, stated, "Based on previous sampling and drilling by Penoles Minerals and Puma Minerals in the late 1990s, a report was done in 2000 entitled Considerations Regarding The El Torno Prospect clearly delineating a 500,000+ ounces gold opportunity on a portion of the property and then goes on to extrapolate these results over the rest of the strike zone to conclude that there may be a 2,000,000+ ounces of gold potential at El Torno. The report also states that the geological structure is similar to those at the Bendigo and Ballarat goldfields in Australia, which have each produced in excess of 20,000,000 ounces of gold. I want to stress that the report and the previous work done are non-NI-43-101 compliant but having said that, when you add the recently announced geochemical and structural survey results which not only appear to expand on the main vein system but have also identified brand new and very large strong anomalies, we feel that the previous conclusions of the report could be substantially increased. Our objective is to have the El Torno gold project ready to start feasibility studies by the end of 2008."

More detailed geochemical surveys will shortly be underway to define more precisely the anomalies, and these will be followed by geophysical surveys to define precise drill targets.
