Orko Silver Encounters Multiple High-grade Intercepts from Martha Vein

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - Orko Silver Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OK) is pleased to announce that it has received further assay results from its on-going diamond drilling program at La Preciosa Project in Durango, Mexico.

Of particular note for the Martha Vein is hole BP08-189 which yielded a true thickness of 9.47 metres grading gold 1.369 g/t and silver 323.3 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 405.4 g/t. Also, hole BP08-181 yielded 6.80 metres grading gold 0.251 g/t and silver 551.5 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 566.6 g/t.

BP08-210 exhibited higher base metals than usual along a deep portion of the Martha Vein. This hole yielded a true thickness of 6.29 metres grading gold 0.661 g/t and silver 232.8 g/t for a silver-equivalent of 272.5 g/t, plus lead 2.04% and zinc 4.76%. Base metals are not used in determining silver-equivalent values for this project.

Gary Cope, President of Orko, adds, "We now have assay results that extend the strike length of the Martha Vein to over one kilometer. We continue to intercept the Martha Vein one kilometer further to the southeast but await assay results for this drilling. We are starting to receive data from the labs at a much faster pace and expect to report further drill results in the near future. Our drilling program is moving at a rapid pace with the rigs currently drilling hole 279. The Company has also begun a 5 hole diamond drilling program at its Santa Monica project to test initial geophysical and geochemical targets."

Hole BP06-67ext was initially drilled in 2006 and later extended near the end of 2007 to a depth of 556.87 metres. It is located on the east side of La Preciosa Ridge, azimuth 000 degrees, dip -90 degrees, on mine-section 14,800 N, 100 metres south of hole BP06-70ext. It was originally drilled to target Luz Elena vein and deepened to intersect Martha vein. Base metal content increases in a sulphide zone in the schist deeper than Martha vein.
