Netco Silver Announces Increase in Size of Private Placement Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2012) - NETCO SILVER INC. (TSX VENTURE:NEI) ("Netco" or the "Company") today announces an increase in the size of the private placement financing (the "Financing") it previously announced by news release dated February 3, 2012.

Due to demand, the Company has increased the size of the offering from 5,000,000 units to 6,300,000 units at a price of $0.125 per unit for gross proceeds of up to $787,500. Unit terms remain the same, with each unit consisting of one common share of the Company and one half of one common share purchase warrant, and each warrant entitling 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 will contain a provision providing that if the Company's common 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.

Proceeds of the financing will be used to fund exploration work commitments on the Company's properties and for general working capital requirements. As previously announced, finders' fees consisting of cash and/or securities may be payable in connection with the financing, in accordance with the policies of the Exchange.

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