Orko Silver Adds Fourth Drill Rig

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

Orko Silver Corp. is pleased to announce that Major Drilling S.A. de C.V. of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, has delivered a fourth diamond drilling rig and crew to Orko Silver’s La Preciosa project. The fourth rig will be initially utilized at Orko Silver’s La Preciosa property to accelerate drill target testing of the impressive Martha Vein.
Orko Silver recently succeeded in contracting a third rig which is currently operating on the San Juan property, a joint venture project with Silver Standard Resources Inc., located immediately west adjacent to La Preciosa. Before the end of 2007, Orko Silver anticipates starting a drill program at its Santa Monica Joint Venture with Goldcorp, Inc. located immediately east adjacent to La Preciosa .
Gary Cope, President of Orko Silver adds, “The impressive results yielded from the Martha Vein since its discovery in Hole BP06-77 prompted us to accelerate the program at La Preciosa. The Martha Vein’s significant contribution to our last resource estimate only served to reinforce that decision. We are anxiously looking forward to more assay results from La Preciosa.”
