Silver Shield Resources Commences Drilling at the Welsh Silver Mine

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 20, 2008) - Silver Shield Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SSR) ("Silver Shield" or "the Company") today announced that the Company has commenced a 2,000 metre drill program at its Welsh Silver Mine, located in Elk Lake, Ontario.

The Welsh Silver property is the site of the former Otisse mine and 3 other shafts. Currently, there are 12 claims and 5 additional units acquired by staking by the company, which will be 100% owned once a final payment is made on the property, due July 2008. Previous work discovered 5 silver bearing veins on the 75 foot and 150 foot levels of the Otisse Mine, these veins were never developed. Cobalt, nickel, and copper mineralization can also be found in the veins. There was underground work in the 1960's and 1970's, and drilling by Silver Shield in 2006 located and extended these veins, along with discovering new veins. Phase 1 drilling was completed by Silver Shield on the property in 2006, and a NI 43-101 compliant technical report on the property can be found on the Company's corporate website.

The property is also adjacent to the south of Amador Gold Corp's Silverclaim Lake property, where a September 2007 drill program returned high grade silver intersections, including an intersection of 506 g/t Ag over 2.32 metres on hole SC07-12. Silver Shield plans to drill its land located immediately south of, the Silverclaim Lake property. The drilling will be located along the Silver Shield/Amador claim boundary, about 1 kilometre southeast of the Welsh Mine. Drilling along this boundary in 1982 returned up to 72.64 ounces/ton over 1.3 feet. Additional drilling will test intersections by Teck-Lacana (1984) on what is now Silver Shield ground, that returned, values as high as 231.70 ounces/ton Ag over 0.2 feet and 41.98 ounces/ ton Ag over 1.2 feet. Drill holes were generally located at 100 foot intervals. Silver Shield's program is designed to re- test these historical values, and discover and expand new silver, copper, and cobalt zones.

The Company's 2008 plans include an intensive drilling program, on the Welsh Silver Mine property. Further exploration, at the Gore, Morris and Wilder Duggan properties, to follow-up on previous work and assist in the determination of drill targets, will also take place. Silver Shield is also actively prospecting other silver projects that are in the vicinity of the Welsh Silver Mine and the Silverclaim Lake property. The Company has a stated corporate objective of acquiring quality silver projects that are in advanced stages beyond grassroots exploration, with the potential to be developed into producing properties.
