VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Soho Resources Corp – (TSX-V:SOH) (OTCQX:SOHFF) ("Soho" or the "Company") is pleased to announce assay results for initial surface and underground sampling from the La Salvadora Zone within its Jocuixtita Silver Project, located in Sinaloa, Mexico.
Highlights of the sampling results are as follows,
Results presented herein represent a series of either, channel samples cut with a diamond saw, or continuous hammer chip samples, collected across the mineralized Salvadora Zone. Individual samples are not more than 1.75 m in width and where necessary, up to five individual samples were collected along a single sample line. In all cases sample lines do not represent the full width of the mineralization, as all individual samples at both ends of all sample lines ended in mineralization. In addition, on surface, overburden cover restricted sampling the true thicknesses of the zone.
Maps displaying the location of the La Salvadora Zone within the Jocuixtita Property, plus individual sample locations, detailed assay results and photographs of the sample sites, where available, can be viewed at the following link on the company's website.
"I am excited to deliver these assay results to our shareholders as they confirm that the La Salvadora Zone is strongly mineralized with high grade silver and significant gold, lead and zinc, mineralization over good widths. With the diamond drill now on site and commencing core drilling operations, we will soon understand the depth and strike extension of this strongly mineralized zone," states Mr. Ralph Shearing, president and CEO.
Detailed assay results are as follows,
Samples were shipped from site to ALS-Chemex's sample preparation facility in Guadalajara, Mexico with pulps being shipped by ALS-Chemex to their analytical laboratory in Vancouver, BC, Canada where final analysis is conducted. Gold and silver are analyzed by Fire Assay. Lead and zinc are analyzed by multi acid digestion and atomic absorption.
Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the analysis of reagent blanks and reference materials at the labs. Quality control is further assured by the insertion by Soho personnel of blind certified standard reference material and blanks into the sample stream at regular intervals.
About the Jocuixtita Project
The 4,332 hectare Jocuixtita Property hosts a number of northwest and northeast trending epithermal vein structures, mineralized with silver, gold, lead and zinc. The principle structure hosting the El Carmen – La Salvadora – El Eden historic mine workings appear to extend over a minimum of 3 km of strike length. The La Salvadora and El Carmen Zones are separated by approximately 700 m of strike length and both zones contain historic underground workings on several different levels.
Assuming success in the initial drill program the company will organize a subsequent drill campaign with the principal intent of tracing the mineralized structures between these two zones and thereafter, along strike.
The Company considers the Jocuixtita Property to be a premier unexplored silver project within the Sierra Madre Occidental. Road accessible, near the town of San Ignacio, Sinaloa, Mexico, the project is close to all necessary infrastructures for successful development. Based upon historic records and work completed to date by the Company, management believes Jocuixtita has excellent potential to develop into a significant silver project and will hopefully, be a large contributor to the Company's current strong resource base, contained within its flagship Tahuehueto Project.

Key findings from the report included:
The Tahuehueto Project is a classic epithermal system hosting multiple structures traced for up to six kilometres of strike length. Considerable upside exploration potential remains within the explored structures containing the defined resources, both down dip and along strike, as well as within numerous other unexplored mineralized structures.
