Metalline Mining Receives Final Drilling Results from Sierra Mojada Project in Mexico

Metalline Mining Company (AMEX: MMG, TSX: MMZ) announces the final drill results from the drilling of the shallow silver-zinc resource area at the Sierra Mojada Project located in Coahuila, Mexico. Results reported below are at a 30 gpt Ag or 1% Zn external cut-off.

Metalline reports a total of 41 drill holes, most of them from the 2010 drilling program within the Area A silver (+zinc+lead) resource, that average 22 meters thick above a 30 gpt Ag cut-off, averaging 58 gpt Ag, 1.09% Zn, and 0.33% Pb.  All of the holes are vertical and the intercepts represent the true thickness of the resource.

These holes are located primarily on the edges of the shallow silver-zinc-lead deposit where the deposit thins and the zinc+lead contents increase relative to silver.  They are thinner and slightly lower in silver content than the average drill hole intercept to date.

The above sections complete the suite of sections on 100-meter spacing between sections 629600E and 632250E and document continuation of the Area A silver+zinc+lead deposit for a strike length of at least 3 kilometers.  The deposit remains open both to the west and to the east. Individual graphic sections have been posted to the web site at http://www.metallinemining.com/s/DH_Sections.asp. Detailed drill results by section are attached below.
