Soltoro Trenching Extends El Rayo Gold Zone 70 Metres to North and Returns 24 Metres of 2.09 gpt Gold

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/26/14 -- Soltoro Ltd. (TSX VENTURE: SOL) has been conducting trenching northwest of the El Rayo gold zone which has extended mineralization by approximately 70 metres along strike at surface. This represents approximately a 10% increase in the strike length of known mineralization in the El Rayo gold zone.

In April of 2014, detailed mapping and ground magnetics were completed north and northwest of trench ERY-13 (16.97 metres of 3.45 g/t gold in NR162 dated April 12, 2014) in order to locate the strike extension of the El Rayo gold zone. On the basis of this work, three trenches were completed with the best result coming from trench ERY-19, which returned 24.00 metres of 2.09 g/t gold where mineralization remains open in both directions. Results from all three trenches are as follows:

Andrew Thomson, President and C.E.O. of Soltoro Ltd., stated: "Trenching has extended the gold zone 70 metres to the north where a series of faults intersects the mineralized structure. Further trenching will be carried out to locate mineralization northwest of the offsetting fault zone and to extend the length of trench ERY-19 where mineralization remains open in both directions."

The lack of outcrop and series of cross-cutting faults in the recently trenched north end of the El Rayo gold zone would suggest that gold mineralization in this portion of the El Rayo structure is controlled by a flexure in the primary northwest-trending structure or by the intersection of this structure with a more northerly-trending fault zone. Drilling in this area has not confirmed the extension of mineralization at depth but this may be the result of fault gaps created by post-mineral faulting. Additional drilling will be required to determine the extent of the newly identified gold mineralization at depth.

Detailed ground magnetics also suggest that the El Rayo gold zone structure may be offset a few tens of meters to the southwest along a northeast-trending fault located between trenches ERY-18 and ERY-19. Soltoro will continue exploring in this area in an effort to locate the offset portion of the El Rayo gold zone structure.

INITIAL GOLD RESOURCE AT EL RAYO

At El Rayo an initial gold resource of 22,600 Indicated ounces of gold contained in 380,000 tonnes averaging 1.85 g/t gold and 18,900 Inferred ounces gold contained in 365,000 tonnes averaging 1.61 g/t gold has been defined over approximately 700 metres of strike length in proximity to the historic El Rayo gold mine. The historic El Rayo gold mine lies along the same northwest-trending structure that also controls silver-lead mineralization at the historic Catarina Mine.
