SNS Silver to Initiate Its First Phase Drill Program at Advanced Emerald Lake Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) - SNS Silver Corporation ("SNS" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SNS) has begun an initial program that consists of a land survey to tie together all historical terms of reference of the geological setting at Emerald Lake.

The company has also retained a Drilling company to mobilize an Atlas Copco drill that that is scheduled to arrive at the Emerald Lake site on or around the 5th of December.

The land survey will be immediately followed by drill target selection for the first 3500 Meters of diamond drilling. Holes will be drilled to an approximate depth of 300 Meters. SNS will utilize these results to identify drill targets for the latter half of the campaign, also consisting of approximately 6500M of drilling. SNS will be targeting previously unexplored extensions of the Emerald Lake project that have been deemed to have potential wide widths of high grade mineralization.

The Drill crew will be rotating 3 shifts, 24 hours per day in order to expedite the first phase and rapidly produce marketable results.

In addition, SNS has started database building to place all historic data into useable form, resulting in the construction of a 3 dimensional drill hole model. This will enable SNS to move towards its first resource estimate.

David Greenway, President of SNS, states: "I am pleased to have Phil Brown and Steve Mlot to work with our drill team as their knowledge of the historical exploration at Emerald Lake will be invaluable as we seek to define the highest priority drill targets and conduct the most efficient exploration campaign possible. There is a general consensus among past Emerald Lake explorers that the project has the potential to reveal a world class resource. The time has come to confirm this view."

SNS Silver Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SNS) is a junior resource company, whose assets include a number of advanced exploration and near term production precious metals projects in geopolitically secure Idaho, USA and Ontario, Canada.

The company is currently advancing its 100% owned Crescent Silver project in Idaho towards a 2010 production decision. In addition, SNS has initiated exploration at its recently acquired gold exploration project at Emerald Lake Ontario.
