TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 7, 2012) -

THIS NEWS RELEASE IS INTENDED FOR DISTRIBUTION IN CANADA ONLY AND IS NOT AUTHORIZED FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Silvermet Inc. ("Silvermet" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SYI) announced today that it has filed a Notice of Intention to make a Normal Course Issuer Bid ("NCIB") with the TSX Venture Exchange.

Under the Normal Course Issuer Bid and subject to regulatory approval, the Company will purchase up to 14,552,872 common shares which number of common shares is equal to 10% of the Company's public float, over the twelve (12) month period ended March 11, 2013 through D&D Securities Inc.

As announced in its news release dated February 29, 2012 Silvermet generated record production and sales in 2011. In addition, Silvermet recently secured approval for the acquisition of land in Turkey suitable for the construction of new production facilities which on commencement of operations, will materially increase production volumes and earnings.

Silvermet is of the opinion that the market price of its common shares does not reflect fair value and as such purchases made under the NCIB represent good value to Silvermet and its shareholders.
