StoneShield Commences Reconnaissance Exploration at the Tabisco Gold/Silver Property, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) - StoneShield Capital Corp. (TSX VENTURE:STS) ("StoneShield" or the "Company") announces that the Company has commenced exploration at the Tabisco gold/silver property, Mexico. Company directors Allen Ambrose and Kris Kottmeier will be joined by StoneShield's chief consulting geologist to conduct field reconnaissance exploration over the next week.

The Tabisco reconnaissance exploration now underway will evaluate previous interpretations of mineralization at Tabisco; outline precious metals potential, as well as copper porphyry potential at the property; collect surface samples for assay; and assist in formulating future exploration plans based on field observations.

The Company is in the planning stage for an exploration drill program later this year. As previously announced by StoneShield, three first-round diamond drill holes at Tabisco totaling 587.5 metres of core encountered gold and silver mineralization in epithermal quartz veining from below detection up to 22.0 g/t Au and 849 g/t Ag.

Several shallow, old mine workings occur along the quartz veins where rock chip sampling has confirmed mineralization along strike, returning high grade gold and silver values from below detection up to 11.0 g/t Au and 655 g/t Ag.

The contents of this Press Release have been reviewed by Allen Ambrose, a Qualified Person as defined in NI 43-101, and a director of the Company.
