Orko Silver's Santa Monica Project Yields Excellent Gold and Silver Values-Geophysical Survey to be Conducted

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 21, 2007) - Orko Silver Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OK) is pleased to announce that extensive float-boulder sampling on the Santa Monica Project in Durango State, Mexico, has yielded excellent values in the "Mesa de los Panuquenos" area in the northeast of the concession. These results, as well as observations during mapping, have lead to the decision to conduct an IP (Induced Polarization) geophysical survey.

Santa Monica is a joint venture between Orko Silver Corp. and Goldcorp, Inc.

The geophysical surveying company Peter Walcott & Associates has been contacted to conduct the IP survey. They currently have a crew on the adjacent ground to the east and plan to mobilize on Santa Monica following completion of their current program.

Results from the first three batches totaling 219 samples of rock float-boulders are available. For gold, 90 samples exceeded 100 ppb Au, 44 samples exceeded 200 ppb Au, 14 samples exceeded 500 ppb and 5 samples exceeded 1,000 ppb Au. The highest value was 2.820 g/t Au.

For silver, 64 samples exceeded 50 g/t Ag, 14 samples exceeded 100 g/t Ag, and 4 samples exceeded 200 g/t Ag. The highest value was 530 g/t Ag.

The gold and silver results are similar in magnitude to those collected during the surface sampling at La Preciosa.

The results for approximately 500 more surface float-boulders are pending, as well as follow-up soil survey results. A second region of interest in the northwest area of the Santa Monica concession has also been sampled.

Gary Cope, President of Orko, adds, "These initial results from Santa Monica are extremely positive and exciting. The nearby San Sebastian Mine owned by Hecla was discovered using the very same methods we are employing. Due to the high number of samples which graded over 100 ppb gold and over 50 grams silver, we are diligently working towards beginning our geophysics program as soon as possible.

This along with the rock and soil sampling should give us some very prospective drill targets. Our crew that did the float sampling on Santa Monica (Goldcorp Joint Venture) is now moving to do the same on San Juan (Silver Standard Joint Venture). Given that La Preciosa, Santa Monica, and San Juan are contiguous, it is becoming more apparent to us that we have potentially discovered a very large system of multiple veins and that exploration on a larger scale is definitely warranted."

Highlights of Float-Boulder Analyses

The following results are the highlights of float-boulder sampling in the "Mesa de los Panuquenos" area for the first 219 samples. These are the samples where gold exceeded 500 ppb (0.500 g/t) and silver exceeded 100 g/t.
