Soltoro Drilling Confirms Mineralization Extends to Surface in Main Zone of El Rayo Primary Silver Project in Mexico

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 14, 2011) - Soltoro Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SOL) has completed four diamond drill ("DD") holes in the Las Bolas deposit zone at the El Rayo Project in Mexico as part of its ongoing resource expansion drilling program. These four DD holes twinned prior reverse-circulation (RC) drill holes in order to test the upper portions of the RC holes which were not previously sampled where unsampled material was not retained for future sampling. The intent of the twinning program was to sample from surface in order to improve the stripping ratio of the deposit through identification of previously undetected mineralization and to confirm RC results. Results from this initial testing show that mineralization does in fact extend to surface and will contribute to reducing the strip ratio. A total of 432 metres was drilled and each hole was sampled in its entirety. Results were returned as follows:

Andrew Thomson, President and Chief Executive Officer, stated: "We continue to expand the extent of the disseminated silver mineralization at El Rayo and demonstrate its open pit potential. Soltoro has completed the first deep step-out drill hole 100 metres north of Ray10-46 and encountered sulphides 260 metres down-hole. We stopped the hole at 404 metres. The second deep hole planned is now underway."

Prior assaying of the first 40 RC holes in the Las Bolas deposit area did not include assaying of the entire holes. The purpose of drilling these four diamond drill holes was to twin the RC drill holes and sample the core from surface in order to determine the continuity of the mineralization, carry out a comparative study and to get a better understanding of the geology. Interval results comparing prior RC results with the four diamond drill holes just completed were returned as follows:

Soltoro is investigating the assay results obtained and has not made a determination as to what may account for the variance in assay values between the RC and DD holes. The Company plans to twin additional RC holes on other portions of the Las Bolas deposit area to determine if mineralization extends to the surface in those areas and to check for further variances. Prior diamond holes twinned with RC holes in the Las Bolas did not show the same variance (Soltoro NR45).

Assaying from this program was completed by ALS Chemex through their office in Guadalajara, Mexico. Silver and other base and trace elements were analyzed using four acid "near total" digestion with an ME-ICP finish. Standards provided by an independent company and locally derived blank samples are inserted for quality control purposes. Mr. Steven T.
