Huldra Silver Announces Initial 2013 Exploration Plans at the Treasure Mountain Mine and an Update on Operations at Both the Treasure Mountain Mine and the Merritt Mill

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/23/12 -- Huldra Silver Inc. ("Huldra" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HDA) is pleased to provide details of its upcoming underground diamond drill program and planned surface drill program for the summer of 2013. The Company also wishes to announce it has achieved a major milestone in shipping the first concentrates from its mill in Merritt, BC.

The underground drill program is designed to systematically test for mineralisation from Level 1 to 20 metres below Level 2 at the Treasure Mountain Mine, ultimately leading to the generation of a National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimate for this area.

The program will be comprised of 61 holes, for a total program of 4,400 metres of HQ diamond drill core. The drilling will be conducted from two diamond drill platforms, specifically constructed to allow for optimal drilling of the targeted mineralisation from the footwall of the vein. A video displaying the planned drill program can be viewed here (2013 Level 2 Under Ground Drill Program). An initial interpretation has identified two mineralised structures on Level 2.

The underground drill program follows up on mineralisation identified by the Company's 2011 surface diamond drilling program and encompasses areas adjacent to Holes TM11-26, TM11-9 and TM11-36 which produced the results indicated below. The complete list of results from the 2011 program are available on the Company's website at www.huldrasilver.com.


--  7,013 grams per tonne Ag, 21.82% Pb, 19.63% Zn and 4.9% Mn over 1.2
    metres true width in hole TM11-26 that intersected the vein structure
    approximately 10 metres above the Level 2 drift. 
--  592.92 grams per tonne Ag, 4.28% Pb, 2.47% Zn and 5.80% Mn over 2.2
    metres true width in hole TM11-9 that intersected the vein structure
    below the Level 1 drift, approximately 80 metres east of the Level 2
    drift. 
--  1,565 grams per tonne Ag, 13.47% Pb, 9.92% Zn and 4.76% Mn over 0.8
    metres true width in hole TM11-36 that intersected the vein structure
    approximately 15 metres below the Level 2 drift. 

The program also builds on the results from 256 chip samples collected along vein exposures on Level 2. Highlights from that chip sampling program are presented in the following table:

(i) All samples were delivered by truck to ACME Analytical Laboratories     
facility in Vancouver, BC where the sample was crushed, split and pulverised
to -200 mesh. A 0.5g portion of the pulp was digested in hot aqua regia and 
analyzed for 31 elements by ICP MS method. Ag overlimits were analyzed by   
fire assay with gravimetric finish, and for Pb and Zn by four digestion and 
ICP ES finish.                                                              

The underground drilling targets are also coincident with a geophysical anomaly identified during a magnetic susceptibility survey conducted over the Treasure Mountain property.

The Company is also pleased to provide details of its upcoming surface diamond drill program on the Treasure Mountain property. An 8,000 metre surface program is anticipated in the summer of 2013, with the drilling spread across four separate targets. The drilling is designed to test targets identified through geochemical soil sampling and airborne geophysics. The targets to be tested during this program are the:


i.  MB Zone, a geochemical and geophysical anomaly approximately 800 metres
    north of the existing mine workings where, in 2010, a grab sample was
    taken and assayed 0.81 g/t Au, 9221 g/t Ag (296.4 oz/t Ag), 1.02% Cu,
    1.14% Pb, 1.03% Zn from a composite sample of reddish oxide material
    (see August 25, 2010 press release); 
ii. Camp Zone, a geochemical and geophysical anomaly identified east of the
    camp and approximately 500 metres south of the existing mine workings, 
iii.Jensen Anomaly, a geophysical anomaly near the historic Jensen workings,
    and a prospective geophysical anomaly linking the Treasure Mountain mine
    with the East Zone; and 
iv. Mine Extension, a geophysical feature that appears to connect the
    Treasure Mountain mine workings with known mineralisation located at the
    East Zone. 

Results from the 2011-2012 soil sampling program show anomalous Ag values to the south of the camp as well as across the MB Zone (2011-2012 Soil Satellite Image) (2011-2012 Soil Magnetic Overly Image) A magnetic susceptibility survey identified anomalous geophysical responses across the property, with prospective anomalies identified proximal to the Jensen workings as well as on a feature that appears to connect the Treasure Mountain Mine workings with known mineralisation located at the East Zone.

Mining Update

At the Treasure Mountain Mine, the Company is currently on track to meet its stated 2012 objective of mining its permitted 60,000 tonnes of mill feed from the underground workings in addition to the previously removed 10,000 tonne bulk sample. The drawdown of Stope 1 from Level 1 of the mine has been completed. The Company is scheduled to complete the backfilling by the end of the week as part of the reclamation program. Once the drawdown of Stope 1 is complete, the Company is planning on completing the drawdown of Stope 3 by the end of 2012 and will be actively mining Stope 2. Transportation of mill feed from the mine site to the mill is ongoing.

Development on the second level of the mine is ongoing and preparation of the crosscuts and drill stations required for the first phase of the underground drill program has commenced.

Mill Operations and Concentrate Shipping

The Company is also pleased to announce it has made the first concentrate shipments under the previously announced concentrate purchase agreements. Once independent lab verification has been received, the Company will provide monthly totals of the estimated production levels from the mill.

The mill is now fully staffed and has been operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, since November 12, 2012. There are still minor modifications and adjustments being made to the equipment and processing that require brief stoppages from time to time. The Company expects to be running at the nameplate 200 tonne per day capacity in the near future.
