MAG Silver Resumes Drilling at Batopilas

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 13, 2006) - MAG Silver Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MAG) announces that drilling has resumed at its 100% owned Batopilas Silver Project in Chihuahua State, Mexico. MAG recently released drill results from Hole 02, which intersected 1.70 meters (5.6 feet) of 2,358 grams per tonne silver (75.8 ounces per ton). This is the continuation of the planned Phase One, 10 hole (2500 meter) program, initiated in late 2005.
The program is designed to test a combination of structural studies and electrical geophysical anomalies in areas previously not mined and to follow up on the intersection in Hole 02.

"The drill results from the first two holes of this program have confirmed the expected grade potential of the Batopilas district," stated Dan MacInnis, President and CEO of MAG Silver. "It is clear that our exploration approach is working and is providing the results we had hoped for. We expect to complete phase one by the end of April."
