Soltoro Reports Drill Results from Chinipas Gold Property in Chihuahua State, Mexico

TORONTO, ONATARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 28, 2011) - Soltoro Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SOL) recently completed an eight hole, 1,821 meter drill program designed to test the bulk tonnage gold potential at its 100%-owned Chinipas Project in Chihuahua State, Mexico. The Chinipas property covers 1,421 hectares and is located 13 km north of the town of Chinipas.

At Chinipas, gold mineralization occurs in sheeted quartz-pyrite-tourmaline veins and veinlets hosted by a strongly fractured quartz-feldspar porphyry. Local prospectors have mined coarse, visible gold from several veins on the property. Sampling of the veins has returned 17.65 g/t gold over 15 cm, 2.92 g/t gold over 2.0 metres, 2.49 gold over 1.3 metres and 2.14 g/t gold from a 3.0 metre by 3.0 metre panel sample. Veining occurs along a 3.5 km long northeast-southwest trend. Drilling was carried out to test the area of most intense veining covering a 1.2 km strike length and 0.5 km width. Of the eight holes drilled, three holes returned values as follows:
