Scorpio's Additional Deep Drilling of Sept 9 Zone from 11th level of the Nuestra Senora Deposit Hits 410 g/t Ag, 3.32% Zn, 1.30% Cu, 0.68% Pb and 0.269 g/t Au over 22 metres



    TSX:SPM

    VANCOUVER, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - Scorpio Mining Corporation (TSX:SPM) is pleased
to report additional underground drill results targeting the Sept 9 body from
the 10th and 11th Levels of its 100% owned Nuestra Senora deposit, Sinaloa
State, Mexico.
    Peter J. Hawley, Chairman, CEO reports, "The intersections of the Sept 9
zone from the 11th Level (Table 2) display consistent metal contents and
widths, which compliment those of the nearby Nuestra Senora body as reported
on November 2, 2007. It appears the related structural dilation zones are
wider at depth, creating larger structural voids in which mineral deposition
occurred. The Sept 9 zone sits proximal to the underground development
workings of the Hoag zone and the Nuestra Senora body. All known
mineralization remains open in all directions, and the recent drill intercepts
reported will certainly increase the life of mine and support the new
reserve/resource calculations slated for the second quarter of 2008. The
Company continues to accelerate the underground development and mill
construction."
