Minco Silver Corporation (the "Company" or "Minco Silver") (TSX: MSV) is pleased to report the assay results of the first 11 holes of the Phase III drilling program on its Fuwan Silver Project located in southwest China. The Phase III drilling program was highly successful and consisted of 30 holes, for a total of 7,509 metres, drilled on the western side of the deposit from section 35 from the West to section 12 to the East. The program was designed to increase the drill density to 80 metres by 80 metres with numerous assay grades for the first 11 holes far exceeding the previous deposit average estimated by P&E Mining Consultants Inc. in November of 2005 (revised and updated in November of 2006).
The assays results for the first 11 holes are highlighted by hole FW0025 (329.81 g/t silver over 15.35m), hole FW0040 (581.52 g/t silver over 2.90m), hole FW0041 (458.12 g/t silver over 12.15m), hole FW0053 (1,223.74 g/t silver over 3.96m), and hole FW0062 (388.64 g/t silver over 7.54m).
