Sabina Silver Announces $30 Million Financing

VANCOUVER, BC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 13, 2007 -- SABINA SILVER CORPORATION (TSX-V: SBB) ("Sabina") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Research Capital Corporation to act as the lead underwriter of a syndicate of underwriters including BMO Capital Markets Corp., and Pacific International Securities Inc. (the "Underwriters") for an offering, on a bought deal private placement basis, of 5,000,000 units of securities (the "Units") at a price of C$3.00 per Unit for gross proceeds of C$15,000,000. Additionally, the Company has granted the underwriters an option to purchase up to an additional 5,000,000 Units exercisable in whole or in part at any time until closing for total potential proceeds of up to C$30,000,000 (the "Offering").

The Units will be purchased for resale to qualified investors in such provinces of Canada as the underwriters and Sabina may agree upon. Each Unit will be comprised of one common share of Sabina (each a "Common Share") and one half of one Common Share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"), with each full Warrant entitling the holder thereof to purchase one Common Share at a price of $3.60 for a period of 36 months following the closing of the Offering.

In consideration for their services, the underwriters will receive a cash commission equal to 5% of the gross proceeds from the Offering and broker warrants exercisable into a number of Common Shares equal to 5% of the number of Units sold. Each broker warrant will entitle the holder to acquire one Common Share at any time within twenty-four (24) months from the closing of the Offering at a price equal to the Unit issue price.

Closing is expected on or about March 29th, 2007. The net proceeds from the sale of the Units will be used for completing pre-feasibility and bankable feasibility assessment of Sabina's 100% owned Hackett River Project.

The securities offered have not been registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Sabina Silver Corporation is a Canadian public mineral exploration and development company with assets at the Hackett River silver-zinc project in the Canadian Arctic, the Del Norte project in the Stewart-Eskay Creek Mining District, and several projects in the Red Lake gold camp. The proceeds from the private placement will be used to further advance Sabina's Hackett River Project towards permitting, feasibility and ultimately production, all subject to rigorous and ongoing engineering and environmental review, and for general corporate purposes.
