HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - May 21, 2010) - Silvore Fox Minerals Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SFX) (the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has been conducting over the past two months, a major technical analysis of recent and historical data in preparation for this year's work program on its 100% owned Coxheath property located outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Details of the initial exploration program, which will start in June, will be announced in the very near future. Site preparation is underway, including the construction of additional core storage racks and the maintenance of drill roads.

About Silvore Fox Minerals Corp.

Silvore Fox Minerals Corp. ("SFX") is a Bedford, Nova Scotia, Canada based public mineral exploration company with 100% mineral rights to the claims at Coxheath, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (known as the 'Coxheath Deposit'). SFX has an experienced management and geological team.

The Coxheath deposit model is believed to be analogous to Pacific Rim volcanogenic porphyry copper deposits. Alteration patterns in association with the regional geological setting further suggest a possible model linking the diorite-hosted porphyry-style mineralization at Coxheath and an epithermal system approximately 4 km to the east. SFX's further recent option and joint venture agreements for the 'Oceanview', 'Nictaux' and 'Shortliff' properties, strengthens SFX's position as a regional mineral exploration company.
