Silverstone Announces Adoption of Shareholder Rights Plan

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2008) - Silverstone Resources Corp. ("Silverstone" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SST) announced today that its Board of Directors has adopted a shareholder rights plan (the "Rights Plan"). The Rights Plan, which took effect December 15, 2008, has been adopted to ensure the fair treatment of shareholders in the event of any take-over offer for the Company's common shares.

The Rights Plan is not intended to prevent take-over bids that treat shareholders fairly. Bids that meet certain requirements intended to protect the interests of all shareholders are deemed to be "Permitted Bids" under the Rights Plan. Permitted Bids are offers to acquire common shares of the Company made by way of take-over bid circular and which must, among other requirements described in the Rights Plan, remain open for at least 60 days.

Silverstone is not adopting the Rights Plan in response to, or in anticipation of, any specific take-over bid or proposal to acquire control of the Company. The Rights Plan is similar to plans adopted by other Canadian companies. The full text of the Rights Plan will be available on the SEDAR website at

Although effective as of December 15, 2008, the Rights Plan is subject to ratification by the Company's shareholders at the next annual meeting of shareholders. If ratified by shareholders, the Rights Plan must be confirmed at every third annual meeting thereafter. If not ratified by shareholders on or before June 15, 2009, the Rights Plan and all of the Rights outstanding at the time will terminate.

The TSX Venture Exchange has conditionally accepted the Rights Plan, subject to ratification by the shareholders of the Company.
