CLAYMORE SILVER BULLION TRUST FILES PRELIMINARY SHORT FORM PROSPECTUS

TORONTO, Jan. 26 /CNW/ - Claymore Investments, Inc. is pleased to announce that Claymore Silver Bullion Trust (the "Fund") has filed a preliminary short form prospectus in connection with an offering (the "Offering") of a new class of non-hedged trust units (the "Non-Hedged Units").  The Non-Hedged Units will provide investors with direct exposure to physical silver bullion.

The Fund completed its initial public offering of US dollar hedged units (the "Hedged Units") and warrants on July 15, 2009.  The Hedged Units currently trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the "TSX") under the symbol "SVR.UN".  Hedged Units are not being offered under the short form prospectus.

The Fund's investment objective is to replicate the performance of the price of silver bullion, less the Fund's expenses and fees. This objective will be accomplished by the Fund investing the net proceeds of the Offering in holdings of pure, unencumbered silver bullion. This strategy will provide investors with the ability to invest in silver bullion in a convenient, tradable and secure manner without the associated inconvenience and high transaction, handling, storage, insurance and other costs typical of direct silver bullion investment.

The Offering is being made on a best efforts basis in each of the provinces and territories in Canada through a syndicate of investment dealers led by GMP Securities L.P., TD Securities Inc. and Canaccord Genuity Corp., and including BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., Scotia Capital Inc., National Bank Financial Inc., HSBC Securities (Canada) Inc., Raymond James Ltd., Desjardins Securities Inc., Dundee Securities Corp., Haywood Securities Inc., Mackie Research Capital Corporation, Rothenberg Capital Management Inc. and Wellington West Capital Markets Inc.
