ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - March 10, 2005) - ECU Silver

The importance of these results comes from the fact that they represent
new veins cut on the north side of a major fault, where ECU recently
discovered high grade sections of the CC and Santa Juana veins. It opens
that area for exploration and mining and is a strong indication that the
known vein system, south of the fault, has now been identified north of
this fault.

All the samples represent the true width of the veins. Samples were
assayed at Mina de San Luis in Durango, state of Durango, Mexico.
Property specific quality control samples were inserted at regular
intervals in the sample sequence.

This work was carried out under the supervision of Mr. Michel Roy, P.
Geo., a "qualified person" within the meaning of NI 43-101, who also
prepared the technical information for disclosure in this news release.
