Soho Resources Corp. Updates Program and Reports More Positive Drill Results From Tahuehueto

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2008) - Soho Resources Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SOH) ("Soho" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update for its ongoing exploration program and recent assay results for holes drilled before the end of 2007 at its Tahuehueto Project, located in northwestern Durango State, Mexico.

Soho currently has three drill rigs operating on site and since commencing its 2008 exploration program has completed 13 drill holes, with three more in progress. Drilling has concentrated on the El Creston and Cinco de Mayo zones and initial drill testing of six holes along a section of the Texcalama Structure. As of the date of the press release two drills are operating in the El Creston Zone and one in the Santiago zone.

The Company's wholly owned helicopter portable drill rig in now operational and is currently drill testing El Creston zone in the difficult terrain area. During the last month Soho has constructed access roads to most sites that were originally targeted as helicopter supported holes therefore helicopter requirements for this area are being kept to a minimum.

Falcon Drilling has shipped one additional drill rig from Canada and this drill rig is expected to be available to the project within three weeks.

Assay Results

Hole DDH07-127, drilled on El Creston from the first helicopter supported drill site returned near surface mineralization over a potentially open pit minable intersected width of 15 meters grading 0.88 g/t Au, 19.3 g/t Ag, 0.17% Cu, 0.91% Pb, 2.47% Zn plus a narrower deeper zone 8.5 meters down hole that returned 1.00 meters of 3.51 g/t Au, 31.5 g/t Ag, 0.15% Cu, 5.13% Pb, 9.42% Zn.

Three other holes drilled on the El Creston structure are reported below including DDH07-135 which intersected two near surface mineralized zones totaling 7.5 meters as follows; from 9.50 to 13.00 meters for a 3.5 meter intersected width (2.87 meter estimated true width) grading 2.67 g/t Au, 72.0 g/t Ag, 0.79% Cu, 2.73% Pb, 1.64% Zn; and from 16.5 to 20.5 meters for a 4.0 meter intersected width (3.28 meter estimated true width) grading 1.15 g/t Au, 67.63 g/t Ag, 0.63% Cu, 1.26% Pb, 1.26% Zn.
