Drilling At The Silver Cliff Property In Colorado

VANCOUVER - Viscount Mining Corp. has received the first hole of ten drilled in our second phase of a three-phase drill program at its Silver Cliff property in Colorado. Viscount began their spring drilling program on March 30th by spudding hole DDH21-01 to the north of the Kate East Zone. It is located about 20 meters north of holes DDH-20-02 and DDH20-03, and was sited to see if the zone extends to the north. It assayed 147.6 g/t over 18.6 meters from 11 meters depth, including 236 g/t silver over 10 meters. As with the other holes in the Kate East Zone, it showed strong correlation with copper, lead and zinc. This relationship is consistent with the other holes in the Kate East Zone.

The holes drilled in the Kate East Zone trend to the North-East. A similar trend was also noted in the geophysical magnetometer survey. Both the low response and the high response show a strong North-East, South-West trend. This will be further investigated this summer. The Kate East Zone consists of 17 holes to date, and measures about 300 meters from South-West to North-East, and is 125 meters at it widest. It is currently open ended in both directions, and the sides are not yet defined. An additional four holes were drilled in this zone in April, and we are awaiting those results.

Jim MacKenzie, President and CEO, said, "We are very proud of the progress Viscount is making at the Kate Silver Deposit. The drill results from the Kate East Zone has demonstrated the deposit to be open ended in all directions. The next phase of drilling will allow us continue to step out drill holes on all sides of the deposit which will make our goal of expanding the current NI 43-101 resource possible."
