El Tigre Drill Hole ET-37 Intercepts 10 Meters of 336.3 G/Tonne Silver Including 0.58 Meters of 2014 G/Tonne Silver

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 7, 2012) - El Tigre Silver Corp. (the "Company" or "El Tigre") (TSX VENTURE:ELS)(OTCQX:EGRTF)(FRANKFURT:5RT) is pleased to provide an update report along with assays from the next three holes from the ongoing Gold Hill core drilling program at its 100% owned El Tigre silver project in Sonora, Mexico.

As of this date, the core drilling program has completed 12 holes for a total of 2293 meters and the Company is currently assessing the ongoing results for future adjustments to proposed drill sites. The drilling program to date has continued to experience good core recoveries. Assays for the three holes reported in this press release tested the potential for disseminated gold mineralization associated with the El Tigre vein system and for high grade silver and gold values found in the El Tigre vein. Drilling is focused on the southern 1.2 kilometers of the El Tigre vein system and is centered on Gold Hill.

Exploration Highlights:

Drill Hole ET-37 was located approximately 50 meters west of ET-31 & 32 and was drilled to test the down dip mineralization intercepted in those holes. The El Tigre vein assayed 2014 g/tonne Ag with 1.15 g/tonne Au. Drilling also intercepted several short zones of lower grade mineralization.

Drill Hole ET-38 was located 50 meters west of Anaconda hole T-3. The hole intercepted a shallow interval consisting of 1.6 meters grading 11.04 g/tonne gold as well as many short intervals of low-grade gold.

Drill Hole ET-39 was located about 100 meters south of hole T-3. It intercepted several long zones of low-grade gold (15.5 m at 0.48 g/tonne Au, 27.2 m at 0.68 g/tonne and 10 m at 0.71 g/tonne Au).

Assay results from these three drill holes are summarized in the following table. Silver equivalent is calculated at 50 to 1.
