ECU Silver Mining Inc. Press Release

TORREON, COAHUILA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 4, 2005) - ECU Silver Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:ECU) -

ECU Silver Mining Inc. (the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results from drifting along the new vein encountered on the 17th level in the Tres Aguilas area of the Santa Juana mine (See October 13th press release). This third mineralized vein has been identified as the "A2" vein.

The company has thus far found three veins, the "CC", the "Santa Juana' and the "A2" of the 16 veins that have been historically mined west of the Tres Aguilas fault. Further planned exploration programs in the near future will attempt to localize the other 13 veins.

These results came from 33 meters of drift driven along the "A2" vein on level 17. This section has a very high content of calcite injected during the faulting related to the Tres Aguilas fault with high values in gold and silver. This pattern is similar to what was observed in the nearby CC and Santa Juana veins, thus we expect the calcite to diminish and the sulfides to increase as the drift gets further from the main fault. This replacement will correspond to a sharp increase in base metals content.
