    FAIRBANKS, AK and VANCOUVER, Aug. 6 /CNW/ - Silverado announced today
that 1,250 ounces of nugget gold (1/4" and larger) have been recovered to date
since the start of sluicing operations in late June of this year.
    These nuggets, which range in size from 1/10 ounce to 12.4 ounces, were
removed periodically from the top parts of the wash plant gold recovery
systems. Still to be recovered from the sluice plant this summer is gold
concentrate containing gold smaller than 1/4" in size.
    Silverado is very pleased thus far with the results of the season. Total
gold recoveries and related financial numbers will be released as available
during the balance of the season.
    Last season -- 2005-06 -- Silverado Gold Mines Ltd. recovered 939.07
ounces after sluicing 8,896 cubic yards of pay dirt. Of this amount, 750
ounces were jewelry-grade nuggets of 1/4" or larger, and the balance, or
189.07 ounces, was delivered for refining.
    For this year, 2006-07 - Silverado is on track to substantially
outperform last year's production.
