Sino Silver Confirms High Grade Silver/Lead/Zinc at Liangdi

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - July 12, 2005) - Sino Silver Corp. (OTCBB:SSLV) is pleased to announce positive results from exploration activities performed in May 2005 by their 60% owned subsidiary, Sino-Top Resources and Technologies, Ltd (Sino-Top), in the Erbahuo silver mining belt of Inner Mongolia, China.

"We are extremely excited about the potential of our portfolio in Inner Mongolia," said David Bikerman, President and CEO of Sino Silver. "The high-grade mineralization discovered at Liangdi confirms the quality of our assets and reinforces our commitment to exploration and development in the area."

Sino-Top owns four properties in Inner Mongolia - Aoboatugounao, Liangdi, Shididonggou, and Zuanxinhu. Exploration emphasis is currently on two of these four properties (Liangdi and Aoboatugounao).

At Liangdi, 300 m3 of trenching and 120 m of tunneling has discovered mineralization of minable width (1.1 meters). Assays show persistent high-grade mineralization averaging 272 grams per tonne silver, 4.38% lead and 2.18% zinc. A group of altered, northwest trending (310-345 degrees), fractured mineralization zones have been shown to be distributed over the whole area. More than 40 parallel belts have been marked as scalable, with lengths ranging between 10-2500 meters, width between 0.3-1.5 meters and thickness 10-20 meters. Mineralization consists primarily of chlorite, epidote, quartz and tourmaline, with anhydroferrite also identified in some areas. The mineralized zones are strongly altered.

Work at Aoboatugounao is proceeding, with trenching and tunneling results pending.

Sino-Top has an option for seven additional properties in Inner Mongolia. Exploration is currently underway on three of these seven properties (Saihanaobao, Erbahuo, and Laopandoa Beihou). Expenditures on the optioned properties are to maintain these properties in good standing with the appropriate government agencies, and for due diligence for potential acquisition. Preliminary exploration results on three of these properties were released by the Company last week, and are available on our web site at
