Hole BP06-79 was drilled from the west side of La Preciosa Ridge, east of BP06-76, at azimuth 090 degrees, dip -45 degrees, on mine-section 15,000 N. It passes through significant intersections of La Gloria, Abundancia, and Chabelita veins.

Gary Cope, President of Orko Silver, adds, "What these holes demonstrate is that the Abundancia Vein is maintaining a good thickness and grade. Hole 79 is noted for its intercept of Abundancia at true thickness of 8.91 metres grading 0.202 g/t gold and 158.5 g/t silver for a silver-equivalent of 170.6 g/t. Within this section is also 3.14 metres of 0.311 g/t gold and 240.1 g/t silver for a silver-equivalent of 258.8 g/t. Most notable is Hole 81, intercepting Abundancia with a true thickness of 20.30 metres grading gold 0.388 g/t, silver 95.2 g/t, for silver-equivalent of 118.4 g/t. Within this section is 4.00 metres true thickness of 0.743 g/t gold and 189.2 g/t silver, for silver-equivalent of 233.8 g/t. These results will significantly add to our next resource estimate. We are currently drilling holes 107 and 108 and anticipating further assay results from drilling already completed."

Hole BP06-80 is located in "La Preciosa Norte Sector", north of La Preciosa Ridge, on mine-section 15,700 N. It was drilled at 090 degrees azimuth and -45 degrees dip. This hole is collared 100 m east of Hole BP06-78. While the Abundancia vein is clearly a significant structure in this hole and it is mineralized throughout, only the bottom portion is in ore grade.
