South American Silver Files Third Quarter 2010 Financial Statements

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2010) - South American Silver Corp. (TSX:SAC)(PINK SHEETS:SOHAF) reports that it has released its unaudited interim consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2010 and the related management's discussion and analysis of financial position and results of operations ("MD&A").

As at September 30, 2010, the Company had working capital of U.S.$5.8 million, including cash and cash equivalents of U.S.$6.2 million. Subsequent to September 30, 2010, the Company announced that it proposes to issue approximately 24 million common shares of the Company, on a committed private placement at a price of Cdn. $1.16 per share, for gross proceeds of approximately Cdn. $27.8 million, with an option to expand the offering up to 27.5 million common shares or approximately Cdn. $32 million. The Company anticipates accepting the fully expanded offering due to very strong investor demand. Completion of the financing is subject to receipt of regulatory approvals and is anticipated to occur on or about December 3, 2010.

With these funds in place, the Company will be in a very strong financial position to accelerate the advancement of its Malku Khota silver-indium project in Bolivia to feasibility, and its Escalones copper-gold project in Chile to the resource definition stage.

Copies of the unaudited financial statements and related MD&A can be found on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
