    BEIJING, CHINA, March 21 /CNW/ - Silver Dragon Resources Inc.
(OTCBB:SDRG) is pleased to announce assay results from comprehensive
exploration work at Erbahuo Silver Mine at the Sino-Top projects in the
Erbahuo Silver District in Northern China.

    Erbahuo Silver Mine covers an area of 1.2 square kilometers. It is
located 120 kilometers northwest of the city of Chifeng, Inner Mongolia, which
is 450 kilometers northeast of Beijing, China and comprises the Erbahuo mining
district, part of the prolific silver belt on the structural join where the
north edge of the North China platform meets with the south edge of the
Hercynian fold belt of the Great Xingan Mountains. Silver Dragon Resources
Inc. owns a 60 % equity interest in Sanhe Sino-Top Resources and Technologies
Ltd., which owns the exclusive exploration and mining rights to the property
as well as the exclusive exploration rights to eight other properties in the
same mining district.

    The comprehensive exploration work in 2006 was focused on the No. II Ore
Body and included a 1,900m trenching project, a 865m drilling project, a 187m
tunneling project, as well as geological and geochemical surveying. The
following are the latest assay results:

    Silver Dragon has commissioned Ausenco International Pty Ltd of Brisbane,
Queensland, Australia to evaluate the current status under NI 43-101 compliant
standards and prepare a Project Development Plan which will outline the steps
for executing a Chinese Feasibility Study for obtaining permits and the NI
43-101 technical reports required for its Erbahuo Silver Mine Project.

    "Our achievement over the past year has not been limited to the latest
findings. While our current assay results at Erbahuo Silver Mine show
potential resources mainly consisting of oxides, we have also found sulfides
in greater depths with our tunneling project, revealing the potential for
finding major silver and multi-metal ores with further in-depth exploration.
In 2007, we intend to bring Erbahuo mine into full production while
intensifying our in-depth exploration efforts," stated Mr. Yang Guofu,
Sino-Top's Chief Geologist.
