WMR-TSX.V

VANCOUVER, May 26, 2011 /CNW/ - Westminster Resources Ltd. ("the Company") has commenced a core drilling program at the San Bartolo silver prospect at the Company's El Cobre property in Sonora, Mexico.

Individual target zones range from 100 to 500 meters in width for the 2.0 kilometer long baseline, with some anomalies open to extension beyond the initial grid. Silver content in the soil anomalies for 64 samples ranges from 1000 ppb (1 g/t) to 5200 ppb (5.2 g/t), for 144 samples ranges from 500 ppb (0.5g/t) to 1000 ppb (1 g/t) and for 191 samples ranges from 300 ppb to 500 ppb.
