Soho Resources Corp. is Pleased to Report Additional Drill Results From Tahuehueto and Comments on Multiple Events of Mineralization

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 15, 2007) - Soho Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SOH) -

Ongoing drilling at the Tahuehueto Project in Durango State, Mexico continues to produce promising results. At the El Creston Zone, Hole DDH07-113 encountered two separate well mineralized zones with a first gold - silver intercept from 41.5 to 49.7 meters returning an intersected width of 8.20 meters grading 16.22 g/t Au and 52.6 g/t Ag and a second deeper zone, from 59.35 to 73.10 meters, returning an intersected width of 13.75 meters of 1.31 g/t Au and 59.9 g/t Ag with 0.71% Cu, 1.33% Pb and 2.69% Zn.

Hole DDH07-111 located 100 meters northeast along strike of DDH07-113 also cut an upper gold - silver zone from 70.15 to 75.70 meters for a 5.55 meter wide intersection grading 5.33 g/t Au and 122.9 g/t Ag. and a slightly deeper zone from 78.80 to 99.10 meters for an intersected width of 20.30 meters grading 4.16 g/t Au, 62.7 g/t Ag, 0.52% Cu, 3.96% Pb and 2.80% Zn.

Between DDH07-111 and DDH07-113 (approx 50 meters from each) a previously reported hole, DDH06-037A intercepted a zone of precious metals from 19.51 meters to 29.26 meters for an intercept of 9.75 meters grading 12.52 g/t Au and 126.3 g/t Ag. This hole also intercepted a deeper zone of base metals from 31.09 meters to 37.19 meters for an intersected width of 6.10 meters grading 0.73 g/t Au, 39.8 g/t Ag, 0.64 % Cu, 1.94 % Pb and 2.55 % Zn. A third small zone of precious metals was intercepted immediately below the base metals returning 2.89 meters from 37.19 meters to 40.08 meters of 8.65 g/t Au, 109.5 g/t Ag, 0.96 % Cu, 0.54 % Pb and 0.22 % Zn.

These intercepts are representative of both a precious metals mineralizing event and a base metal mineralizing event at Tahuehueto which are distinct from each other. Geologists are able to distinguish mineralogical and textural differences between these events in the core. The current interpretation is that the precious metals event postdates the base metals event. The El Creston target is strongly mineralized by both systems.

At the Cinco de Mayo Target, hole DDH07-101 intercepted 14.65 meters grading 1.64 g/t Au and 268.28 g/t Ag. A separate intercept in the same hole is mineralized with base metals returning 13.75 meters grading 0.08 g/t Au, 34.5 g/t Ag and 1.20% Pb, 1.43% Zn. This is the first hole which indicates both events separately at Cinco de Mayo.

These intercepts and the results from all other analytical results from holes received since the last press release are presented in the following table.

Drilling at Tahuehueto is currently split between resource drilling on the El Creston target and Cinco de Mayo targets under the Cinco de Mayo southern most adit. Additional exploration drilling is planned to be conducted in the 1.5 km area between the El Creston target and Cinco de Mayo adit referred to above, to fill in gaps in the drill spacing along this trend.

The majority of the effort over the next 45 days will be directed towards the El Creston Zone where the company has been unable to establish road access and drill sites due to extreme topography over approximately 300 meter of strike length within the area of intersection of the El Creston Structure and the El Perdido Structure. Some of the Company's best results have been obtained at the edge of this, up to now inaccessible area. Within this extreme topographic area the Company has established 10 helicopter drill pads in order to complete the drilling required before calculating its initial resource estimate. Drilling from these helicopter supported drill sites is scheduled to start within the next several days utilizing a fly capable drill rig sourced and purchased by Soho specifically for this fly drill program.

The Company has completed the 18,000 meter drill contract with Major Drilling and the drill contract was not renewed with this drill contractor. Drilling is now being conducted by Tecmin Servicios S.A. de C.V. of Zacatecas, Mexico using one drill rig. With the Company's fly capable drill commencing drilling operations, there will be two rigs operating on a continual basis at the site.

The current hole being drilled is hole DDH07-125. Drill core samples for 9 holes, DDH07-114 through DDH07-122, have been submitted to the lab for analysis.

Sample location plans are available for viewing on the Company's web site. Drill core and rock samples are shipped from site to Inspectorate Labs' preparation facility in Durango City, Mexico with pulps being shipped by Inspectorate Labs to their analytical laboratory in Reno Nevada where final analysis is conducted. Gold and silver are analyzed by Fire Assay. Copper, Lead and Zinc are analyzed by aqua regia digestion and atomic absorption.

The Tahuehueto project is situated in north-western Durango State, within the historic Sierra Madre mining district, which hosts a number of producing gold, silver and base metal mines, and many active exploration and development projects.

The exploration program is being conducted under the direction of Hall Stewart, PGeo, a qualified geologist as defined under National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Ralph Shearing, President, P.Geol, also a qualified geologist, authored this news release.
