Sino Silver Reports Exploration Results for Option Properties

MIAMI, FLORIDA--(CCNMatthews - June 28, 2005) - Sino Silver Corp. (OTCBB:SSLV) is pleased to announce preliminary results from exploration activities performed in May 2005 on properties under option agreement to Sino Silver's 60% owned subsidiary, Sino-Top Resources and Technologies, Ltd. (Sino-Top), in the Erbahuo silver mining belt of Inner Mongolia, China.

"We are encouraged by the exploration work to date on our optioned properties in Inner Mongolia" said David Bikerman, President and CEO of Sino Silver. "We are committed to our exploration efforts in the area, and expect to see additional high-grade mineralization added to our portfolio as a result".

Exploration is currently underway on three of the seven properties under option agreement to Sino-Top (Saihanaobao, Erbahuo, and Laopandoa Beihou). Expenditures on the optioned properties are to maintain these properties in good standing with the appropriate Government agencies and to give indications as to the development potential of the property. Sino Silver deposited US$ 500,000 (RMB 4,140,000) on April 1, 2005 into accounts in China earmarked for exploration and associated expenses.

At Saihanaobao, two groups of mineralized belts were found; one trending northwest (40-50 degrees); and one northeast (315-345 degrees), dipping 55-70 degrees. Ten altered, mineralized bodies were discovered, with the mineralization being primarily quartz, ferro-manganese, epidote and chlorite. Of these bodies the longest is 2,300 meters long, being iron-rich quartz reef. The others are 50-100 meters long with widths varying to up to 6 meters. Assay results are pending.

The Erbahuo mine is an operating silver mine. Exploration in May shows that the ore of No. 2 deposit is distinctly different in the south, north and central sections, with the south and north sections being the same, yellowish, acidic volcanic rock with iron-manganese mineralization. In the heavily mineralized central section, rocks are primarily fractured breccia.

Exploration activities at Laopandao Beihou located two tin mineralization belts. The #1 belt is primarily volcanic rock debris and is 400 meters long and 70 meters wide. The #2 belt is primarily rhyolite porphyry and is 350 meters long and 120 meters wide. Mineralization forms include quartz, tourmaline and epidote as well as anhydroferrite. Other minerals identified include chalcopyrite, galenite and pyrite.

Sino-Top owns four properties (Aobaotugounao, Liangdi, Shididonggou, Liangdi, and Zhuanxinhu) in addition to the seven properties under option agreement. Work is underway on two of these properties. Exploration results are pending and will be announced shortly.

The Company recently filed with the SEC audited financial statements for Sino-Top and pro forma financial information related to the acquisition of Sino-Top. In addition, the Company reported information relating to the trading suspension of its common stock that was effective from May 17 through May 31 and the related investigation conducted by special counsel on a Form 8-K filed with the SEC on June 22, 2005. Both filings are available on the Company's website at
