Silver Reserve Corp. - Progress on Nevada Precious Metal Projects

    Symbol: SLVV OTCBB

    RENO, NV, March 31 /CNW/ - Since inception, Silver Reserve Corp. has
assembled 14 claim groups in the State of Nevada covering 853 claims. Eight of
these Projects were former producers. Over the past year, the Company's
efforts have been directed to the evaluation of these Projects through surface
mapping, rock chip sampling, grid sampling and exploration drilling. These
Projects, as described below; all have potential for development of a precious
or base metal resource.
    Initial drill programs have been completed on the Como and Nivloc
Projects and drilling is underway on the Pansy Lee Projects. Reports on these
programs are expected in April and early May of 2008. Going forward in 2008,
the Company plans to continue drilling on key targets, verify historical
results and expand the resource around existing mine workings.
    Three of our claim groups are within trucking distance of
Silver Reserve's milling facility at Mina, Nevada. Work is progressing on the
restoration of the milling facility. The milling facility is a custom mill
installation located at the town of Mina, Nevada. The mill has operated under
various configurations to meet specific requirements of prior operators. The
mill is nominally designed to process 250 tons of ore per day.
    Silver Reserve continues its search for projects with early production
potential. Two other projects are currently being evaluated for potential
    The following is a description of the key projects in the groups that
have been evaluated and work planned for 2008.

    The Como Claim Group.
    The Como Claim Group consists of 224 mineral claims located in
Lyon Country, Nevada approximately 15 miles east of Carson City. Public
Records indicate that the adjacent Rapidan Mines produced approximately
83,000 tons of ore between 1918 and 1936. Silver Reserve Corp. has completed
geological mapping and surface sampling which identified drill targets and an
11 hole drill program has been completed with results expected to be announced
in April 2008. Further drill targets have been identified and additional
drilling is planned for 2008.

    The Blue Dick Claim Group.
    The Blue Dick Claim Group is located near Lida, Nevada in the South East
part of the Palmetto District. We are evaluating the results of 165 grid
samples. A Notice of Intent drill plan is being developed for five drill holes
to test the thrust fault and shaley zones noted during the mapping and
sampling programs. We expect to submit the plan to the BLM in April of 2008
for its review and approval. The claim area contains numerous prospects,
adits, shafts and two small open pit mines. The Blue Dick Mine has two shafts
and several adits with no available historic data. Public records indicate
that production occurred prior to 1960 and the deposits contained silver, gold
and lead. Geologic mapping and sampling indicates complex thrust faulting
traced by the historic underground mine workings for a length of at least
3000 feet. Geochemical sampling underground has noted anomalies of Au to
1.3 opt Ag to 69 opt on the thrust contact. Geochemical anomalies have also
been located south of workings and grid samples have provided an additional
target area.

    The Klondyke Claim Group.
    At the Klondyke Claim Group, we have 807 soil and rock grid samples from
six grid areas under evaluation. A Notice of Intent drill plan is being
developed and we expect to submit the plan to the BLM in April of 2008 for its
review and approval. The Klondyke Claim Group consists of 173 mineral claims
located in Esmeralda County, Nevada. Most of the historical deposits in the
Klondyke Claims occur in limestone in veins carrying both high grade and low
grade silver values. According to public records, production up to 1960 was
2,758 tons. The claim area hosts numerous prospects and mine shafts. Mapping
and grid sampling to date indicate strong NE/SW bearing anomalous zones to the
south. Detailed geologic mapping of the anomalous zones will proceed this

    The Nivloc Claim Group.
    On the Nivloc Claim Group, we have a BLM approved drill plan and a 5 hole
reverse circulation drill program has been completed and results will be
reported in April 2008. The Nivloc Claim Group presently consists of
18 mineral claims located in Esmeralda County, Nevada approximately 6 miles
southwest of Silver Peak, Nevada in the eroded SE portion of the Red Mountain
District. This District includes the Sixteen-to-One, Mohawk, Sanger,
Silver Queen and Nivloc mines. Public records indicate that the Nivloc Mine
located on the property operated from 1937 to 1943 with ore grading of
0.05 ounces of gold and 12.0 ounces of silver per ton.

    The Pansy Lee Claim Group.
    On the Pansy Lee Claim Group, we have a BLM approved drill plan for three
drill sites and we are currently drilling on this property. The Pansy Lee
Claim Group consists of 30 mineral claims located in Humboldt County, Nevada,
eight miles north west of Winnemucca, Nevada. Public records indicate a
substantial amount of underground workings were developed including 6000 feet
of horizontal tunnelling and a former mine operation. Historical records dated
in 1982 suggests 73,800 tons of indicated ore with an average grade of
17.46 oz per ton silver and .218 oz per ton gold are located on the property.

    The Silver Queen Claim Group.
    At the Silver Queen Claim Group, geological mapping has indicated a large
alteration zone to the west with numerous veins trending NE/SW across the
property. We have added 64 additional claims to cover these areas. The
Silver Queen Claim Group presently consists of 147 mineral claims located in
Esmeralda County, Nevada, nine miles west of Silver Peak, Nevada. The
Silver Queen Project covers a north west trending group of silver deposits
first discovered in 1907. Public records indicate that Silver Queen Mine
operated on the property between 1920 and the 1950's, producing an average of
20-25 ounces of silver per ton. We have acquired the Mohawk Mine that lies
within the claim group and was the largest producer in the area. Plans include
up to 10,000 feet of core drilling on this Project in 2008 targeting the
Mohawk structure and its extensions.

    The Company holds a significant land position in Nevada. These Projects,
in total, include the Como Claim Group, Pansy Lee Claim Group, Klondyke Claim
Group, Silver Queen Claim Group, Dyer Claim Group, Sylvania Claim Group,
Montezuma Claim Group, Nivloc Claim Group, Blue Dick Claim Group, Weepah Hills
Claim Group, Kope Scheelite Claim Group, Santa Fe Group, Quailey Mine Claim
Group and the Gold Point Group. For more detail on the projects not described

in interpreting drilling results and other ecological data, fluctuating metal
prices, the possibility of project cost overruns of unanticipated costs and
expenses, uncertainties relating to the availability and costs of financing

    Cautionary Note to US Investors - The United States Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) limits disclosure for U.S. reporting purposes to
mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or
produce. The reader is cautioned that the term, "resource," is not a term that
is recognized by SEC guidelines for disclosure of mineral properties.
Generally, "resources" estimates do not rise to the level of certainty
required by SEC guidelines. The mineralized material described above is not
