Soho Resources Corp. Reports More Positive Drill Results From Several Zones at Tahuehueto

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - Soho Resources Corp. ("Soho" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SOH) is pleased to report assay results for 18 completed core drill holes from its ongoing exploration at its 100% controlled Tahuehueto Project, located in northwestern Durango State, Mexico.

Highlights include; step out drilling for resource expansion at Cinco De Mayo and Perdido Zones with excellent results and higher than average grades from both areas; infill drilling at El Creston targeted for resource expansion; continued exploration drilling at Santiago with two step out holes reporting strong precious metal grades; and new, first pass exploration drilling on the untested Texcalama Zone, one of numerous untested and virtually unexplored zones remaining on the project.

It is important to note that none of the holes reported herein were included in the 43-101 compliant resource calculation published last week by Soho and these new holes will certainly help increase the resources inventory in a future resource calculation.

Of the 18 completed holes being reported in this news release, eight holes returned no significant results as follows; 5 holes DDH08-139, 140, 142, 144 & 147 from initial first pass exploratory drilling Texcalama; 1 hole each from, Cinco de Mayo DDH08-146, El Creston DDH08-152 and Catorce DDH08-155. Two additional drill holes, DDH08-145 & 153 were abandoned before reaching target depth,

"This press release clearly demonstrates several important facts" states Mr. Hall Stewart, Vice President of Exploration, "firstly, as our knowledge base improves, we are experiencing a better success rate with hitting our mineralized zones with 10 out of 18 holes returning good results. Secondly, drilling along El Perdido is encountering stronger than anticipated mineralization which is clearly elevating the importance of this zone as a strong resource contributor. Thirdly, early step out drilling at Santiago is confirming the high precious metal content of this zone supporting the limited drilling conducted here in late 2006 and early 2007, and finally, we are highly encouraged to confirm strong poly-metallic mineralization north of the underground workings at the Texcalama Zone which also elevates the importance of this underexplored zone to the project."

Soho currently has three drill rigs operating on site and since commencing its 2008 exploration program has completed 42 drill holes, with three more in progress. Samples from 22 additional drill holes are either in the lab for analysis or in transit to the lab.

Sample location plans are available for viewing on the Company's web site, http://www.sohoresources.ca/pdf/May8LocationMap.pdf. Drill core and rock samples are shipped from site to Chemexs' sample preparation facility in Guadalajara, Mexico with pulps being shipped by Chemex to their analytical laboratory in Vancouver, BC, Canada where final analysis is conducted. Gold and silver are analyzed by Fire Assay. Copper, Lead and Zinc are analyzed by multi acid 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.
