Silvore Fox Minerals Corp. Closes First Tranche of Financing, Adds to Land Position in High Grade Zinc Pick Lake Area, and Reduces Land Position at Harvest

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 3, 2012) - Silvore Fox Minerals Corp. (the "Corporation")(TSX VENTURE:SFX) is pleased to announce that, further to its new release issued May 22, 2012, it has closed the first tranche of its non-brokered private placement financing in the amount of $1,450,000, subject to the final acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange. Pursuant to the financing, the Corporation has issued 16,111,111 units ("Units") at a price of $0.09 per Unit to Beijing Donia Resources Co. Ltd ("Bejing Donia"). Each Unit consists of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole common share purchase warrant a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase until June 28, 2014 an additional common share of the Corporation at a price of $0.12 per share prior to June 29, 2013 and at a price of $0.15 per share from June 29, 2013 until June 28, 2014. All common shares, Warrants, and common shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants are restricted from trading until October 30, 2012.

The proceeds of the sale of the Units will be used to fund the acquisition cost of two Chilean properties (the Totoral Project and the Harvest Project) which will be purchased from Sinotech Mineral Exploration Chile Limitada ("Sinotech Chile") by Golden Fox Resources SpA and Golden Eagle Resources SpA, the indirectly wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Corporation, for the purchase price of $1,000,000 and the balance will be used to fund work programs in Chile and Canada and to provide general working capital.

Sinotech Chile is a subsidiary of Sinotech Mineral Exploration Co. Ltd. of China which is the parent company of Beijing Donia. Prior to the acquisition of the Units referred to above, Beijing Donia owned and controlled 49,067,661 common shares of the Corporation, which represented 29.98% of the Corporation's issued and outstanding common shares. Immediately after the acquisition of the Units referred to above, Beijing Donia owns and controls 65,178,772 common shares of the Corporation, which represents 36.25% of the Corporation's issued and outstanding common shares.

The Corporation incurred no finder`s fees in the placing of these units.

Staking of New Ground at Winston / Pick Lake

Silvore Fox has successfully completed staking operations in the Schreiber area of Ontario to protect high priority geophysical targets located during the VTEM airborne survey announced January 20, 2012.

Silvore Fox now controls 610 claim units, totaling 9,760 hectares, in this favourable area covering the strike extensions of three past producing high grade VMS zinc deposits. The Corporation's claim area includes one of these, the Pick Lake deposit which has a deeply buried historical resource (1998) of 600,000 tonnes of 21% Zinc, 1% Copper along with associated minor gold and silver values. While non-compliant with current 43-101 requirements, these figures were prepared by a respected Canadian major producer who ran the Winston and Pick Lake mines from 1988 through 1997.

Reduction of land position at Harvest Property in Chile

In other corporate news Silvore Fox Minerals Corp has been informed that one small license (4% of the total claim area) at the extreme North-East of the property was mistakenly relinquished and will no longer be considered part of the Harvest property.

Fortunately, the land in question, indicated on the map below in Green, was a marginal acquisition and not totally contiguous with the other Harvest claims. The area in Red was always unavailable and essentially cut this parcel off from the main Harvest claims. No drill targets were planned for this area and the 2012 Chile exploration plan requires no adjustments as a result of this event.
