RENO, Nev., Feb. 24, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coyote Resources Inc. (OTCBB:COYR) ("Coyote" or the "Company"), is pleased to report, it believes the estimated total of unclassified in-place mineralized material in the Tonopah Extension Mine is approximately 3 million tons at an average grade of 9.26 ounces per ton silver, or 27,780,000 ounces of silver.

Silver mineralization in the underground part of the mine property was estimated using the block model upon which 2,125 vertical channel samples from the development drifts were plotted. Assuming the historical Tonopah silver to gold ratio of 100:1, the Company believes gold mineralization in the same mineralized material would be approximately 0.0926 ounces per ton gold, or 277,800 ounces of gold. The report on the Tonopah Extension Mine was prepared by Telesto Nevada Inc. using historical maps, cross-sections and reports compiled in 1935 from the original working maps by John L. Dynan, consulting engineer, and Tom Logan of the U.S. Geological Survey. Telesto created a three-dimensional block model of the mine underlying the 958 acres of patented claims owned by Coyote Resources. Telesto is currently researching and reviewing additional information in preparation of a more in-depth report on the Tonopah Extension Mine, which should be available in March 2011.

Based on the report, the Company believes the tailings present on the surface of the patented claims owned by Coyote Resources are approximately 800,000 tons with an average grade of 1.6 ounces per ton silver and 0.019 ounces per ton gold, or about 1,280,000 ounces of silver and 15,200 ounces of gold. Previous metallurgical testing of the tailings by cyanide leach resulted in approximately 68% recovery of gold and 57% recovery of silver. As a result of the previous testing and the pilot heap leach that was tested in 1986, Coyote believes silver and gold are recoverable. 

Coyote plans to verify the underground mineralized material by drilling from the surface in the spring/summer of 2011 to what is expected to be the area of the Denver Vein which was located by the mine survey during the period the mine was active being produced. The Company also plans to investigate more precisely the tailings by drilling, assaying, and cyanide leach testing these areas.
