Soho Resources Corp.: Project Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2011) - Soho Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SOH) ("Soho" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update for its ongoing work programs at both its flagship Tahuehueto Project, located in Durango, Mexico and its more recently acquired Jocuixtita Silver Project, located in Sinaloa, Mexico.

Since completing its most recent financing in February 2011 the Company has initiated work programs, as outlined below, on both of its projects. These programs are progressing well and drill rigs have been secured for both projects, to be mobilized to commence drilling operations in May 2011.

Tahuehueto Project - Pre-Feasibility Data Collection

Efforts at Tahuehueto has been focused around collecting data to support a pre-feasibility and subsequent feasibility study as recommended and outlined within the October 2010 Preliminary Economic Assessment (the "PEA") prepared by Snowden Mining Industry Consultants Inc.

Drill road access and site preparation is underway in advance of drill rig mobilization to the project during the second half of May 2011 in order to commence an initial 2000 meter infill drill program designed to move Inferred Resources (currently about 40% of the total Tahuehueto Resource) into the Measured and Indicated Resource categories, required to support pre-feasibility and feasibility studies.

Knight Piésold Ltd. ("KPL"), initiated engineering work in late February 2011 and is conducting a site visit this week to proof initial concepts and collect critical geo-mechanical structural data and advise with ongoing environmental monitoring and data collection. KPL has been retained to conduct geotechnical and water/waste management design studies for Soho's Tahuehueto Project. KPL studies will include a geotechnical assessment of the proposed El Creston open pit, geotechnical input and assessment to the possible open pit at Cinco de Mayo (not included in the PEA). It also includes the investigation of one or more, Mine Development Concepts ("MDC") where each MDC would be a combination of alternative mine access points, plant-site locations, waste rock and tailings storage facility locations and water management concepts, to ultimately arrive at an overall optimum MDC.

Jocuixtita Project. – Initial Exploration and First Phase Drilling

Work commenced on the Jocuixtita Silver Project in February 2011. Access road rehabilitation was completed in the first week of March allowing crews to access the project and establish a base camp and start preliminary geological investigations of the mineralized zones and existing accessible underground adits. Geological mapping within and around the principle mineralized zones is continuing and has advanced to a stage where the Company has confidently selected zones to drill test during this initial exploration program. Surface and underground channel sampling is underway to properly access the exposed mineralization within the various zones, know to occur on the project.

The Company has signed a drilling contract with Falcon Perforaciones Mexico, S.A. de C.V. for the core drilling of 10 – 15 holes totaling a minimum of 2000 meters. Falcon expects to mobilize the drill rig to the Jocuixtita site by the end of the first week of May, 2001 and drilling operation would start immediately upon completion of drill mobilization.

The Company is planning to drill test two zones, the La Salvadora and El Carmen zones separated by approximately 700 meters along the same structure. This structure appears to be in excess of three kilometers in length and is one of a number of mineralized structures known to occur on the project.

OTCQX Listing in U.S.

The Company also recently announced on April 19, 2011 that a listing on the OTCQX, a premier tier of the OTC market in the United States was being pursued, and would hopefully be completed in the second quarter of this year. A listing on this exchange will provide U.S. investors with more transparent trading, superior information, and easy access through their US. broker-dealers. "We are looking forward to higher visibility in the largest market in the world." For more information on the OTCQX visit their website at
