Netco Silver Announces Closing of First Tranche of Private Placement Financing for Gross Proceeds of $596,875

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO U.S. PERSONS OR FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES

NETCO SILVER INC. (TSX VENTURE:NEI) ("Netco" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of the first tranche of the private placement financing (the "Financing") it previously announced by news releases dated February 3 and February 22, 2012, pursuant to which it has issued 4,775,000 units at a price of $0.125 per unit for gross proceeds of $596,875.

Each unit issued consisted of one common share of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant, and each warrant entitles the holder to purchase an additional common share at $0.22 per share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Financing. The warrants contain a provision providing that if the Company's shares trade at a closing price in excess of $0.30 on the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") (or such other exchange on which the Company's shares are then principally traded) for a period of 10 consecutive trading days, the Company may issue a notice accelerating the expiry date to 30 days from the date of such notice.

In connection with this closing, the Company paid aggregate cash commissions of $35,700 and issued an aggregate of 285,600 finder's warrants, with each finder's warrant exercisable into one common share at a price of $0.125 per share for a period of 18 months.

The Company expects to complete the final tranche of the Financing in the coming days and will disseminate a press release upon closing. Proceeds of the Financing will be used to fund exploration work commitments on the Company's properties and for general working capital requirements.

All securities issued in connection with the Financing are subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with applicable Canadian securities laws. Closing of any further tranches of the Financing will be subject to the approval of the Exchange.

None of the securities sold in the Financing have been or will be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), and none of them may be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements of the Act.

Netco is a publicly traded exploration company focused on the discovery and development of high-value precious metals deposits in the Americas. The Toruel Property, covering 5,736 hectares, is located about 25 kilometers southeast of the village of Los Menucos, Rio Negro Province, Argentina, and is prospective for silver. The Company has the option to acquire up to 75% of the property.
