Soltoro Intercepts 18 Metres of 161 g/t Silver Including 4.5 Metres of 378 g/t Silver in Discovery Zone at El Rayo Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 20, 2012) - Soltoro Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SOL) has completed in excess of 10,000 metres of this year's planned 20,000 metre drill program at its El Rayo primary silver project in Jalisco, Mexico. Results from the latest round of drilling include high-grade silver intercepts of 1.2 metres of 706 g/t silver at the La Soledad West deposit and 4.5 metres of 378 g/t silver in a newly discovered zone east of the Matachines mine at the south end of the Las Bolas structure. Drilling continues in order to expand existing silver resources along extensions of known resource areas and at newly identified prospective exploration target areas.

LA SOLEDAD WEST AREA: A total of sixteen diamond drill holes and four reverse-circulation holes were completed in this area. Drilling tested the western extension of the La Soledad deposit and several Induced Polarization anomalies. Further diamond drilling is planned to test the resource potential of the La Soledad West deposit at depth. Selected results are as follows:

3 Overall recovery for this interval was 75%. Recovery for the interval 0.3m to 3.0m was 42% and 12.0m to 13.5m was 40%.

Andrew Thomson, President of Soltoro Ltd., stated: "The discovery of a new near-surface high-grade silver zone east of the Las Bolas deposit and northeast of the La Soledad deposit is another indication of the potential to expand the current silver resource base at El Rayo. Two drill rigs continue to operate on the property."

MATACHINES EAST: A total of four diamond drill holes and two reverse-circulation holes were completed in this area. Drilling tested the Las Bolas structure and a silver soil anomaly 200 metres east of the Matachines mine area. RC12-149 intersected a new, previously unknown, high-grade silver structure. Further drilling is underway to determine the extent of the mineralization. Results are as follows:
