undeveloped silver project in Australia. The company used a cut off grade of 70 g/t Ag which is very close to

260 g/t silver has been identified at the Webbs silver project. This target has the potential to contain
between 26 - 57 Moz of silver.  The exploration target includes the existing JORC compliant Inferred and
Indicated Resources shown above. An exploration target has not been determined for copper, lead and zinc grades
known to occur in the resource.

Silver Mines is carrying out a resource evaluation drilling program at its Webb's Silver Project and has
planned a 12,000m RC drilling program to commence in early April 2011. This program is designed to increase and
upgrade the existing resource. Drilling will also take place at exploration targets around Webbs and at other
prospects in the region.

On behalf of the Board I encourage you to consider exercising your options. The Company is very pleased with
our exploration success to date.  Our silver projects in NSW, especially Webbs projects to offer continued
success for the Company in the future.



Yours faithfully
