Oro Silver Earns-In 51% Interest In Ana Camila Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2008) - Oro Silver Resources Ltd. ("Oro Silver") (TSX VENTURE:OSR) is pleased to announce that it has acquired a 51% interest in the Ana Camila claim group (5 concessions) located adjacent to the El Compas mine in Zacatecas. The 320 hectare property covers the northern extensions of the gold/silver bearing El Compas vein system.

Under the agreement signed in July 2007, Oro Silver has the option to purchase a 100% interest in the Ana Camila property by paying a total of US$300,000. To date Oro Silver has completed total payments of US$150,000. Additional payments, totaling US$150,000, are staged over the next 12 months.

"The Ana Camila agreement protects our interest in the El Compas mine area and fits our growth strategy in the Zacatecas district. The property covers 500 metres of strike extent of the El Compas vein system. The ore chutes defined by Oro Silver so far on the El Compas property have returned some impressive drill results such as 15.3 g/t gold and 76 g/t silver over 6.6 metres, and demonstrate the potential of the area," stated Herve Thiboutot, Chief Executive Officer and Vice-President Exploration of Oro Silver.

Oro Silver is currently in the process of completing a resource estimation based on drill results obtained to date at El Compas, which is planned for release next month.

Oro Silver exploration programs are supervised by Mr. Herve Thiboutot, P. Eng., and Mr. Eric Grill, Senior Project Manager. Mr. Thiboutot is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Thiboutot and Mr. Grill have reviewed the content of this press release.
