Sola Announces Memorandum of Understanding to Partner With a Manganese Production Company in Brazil

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) - Sola Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SL) (PINK SHEETS:SORSF) (the "Company" or "Sola") reports that it has signed a Non-Binding Memorandum of Understanding, ("MOU"), to purchase 50% of Rio Madeira Comercio Importacao E Exportacao De Minerios, ("Rio Madeira").

The Board of Directors and Management of the Company are very pleased to announce this potentially strategic partnership and opportunity for Sola. At this time Sola has secured this MOU with the full agreement of the stakeholders of Rio Madeira and as such both parties will commence working towards establishing definitive, binding agreements immediately.

Rio Madeira presently produces approximately 2,000 tons of Manganese per month and will be ramping up this production in the coming months. There are approximately 40 hectares of land under management that Rio Madeira mine Manganese from. In the past, Rio Madeira has produced as much as 4,000 tons of Manganese per month, but this production has been unpredictable. The average grade of the Manganese produced is 52%, as reported by Rio Madeira.

Bill Pfaffenberger, CEO and Director of Sola, says; "Sola is excited about the signing of this MOU, it gives Sola the ability to extend its business activities in Brazil through revenue generating means and not solely exploration."

Sola will be attending to the next stages of due diligence immediately and will provide updates as they are available.
