U.S. Precious Metals Announces Additional Drilling Results from Solidaridad Project, Mexico

USPR, Inc. announced today additional assay results from the 2010 drilling program on the Company's Solidaridad project in the southern Michoacán province of Mexico.

The assay results from ALX Chemex for drill hole LS10-006, was drilled above LS10-005, at a 45° angle, to test precious metal continuity between drill hole LS10-005 and the surface. This zone of precious metal lies south of the main zone in an east-west linear trend. Drill holes LS10-001 through LS10-007 were drilled to test the subsurface for quartz sulfide veins for continuity between two locations where antiquated mining had been conducted, approximately 12 meters apart and located in a narrow valley between to low lying mountains. Assay results from drill hole LS10-005 indicated good gold, silver and copper values between 210.8 meters and 217 meters extending the depth of mineralization deeper than previous drilling has indicated.

The southern extension, still considered the Main Zone, is one of three precious metal zones that make up the northeasterly trending La Sabila deposit. MIM Exploration had drilled four R.C. holes within the southern extension in 1997 with no significant results further verifying that the mineralization defined thus far by USPR is consistently contained with the quartz stock work.

Cuendeo, about 1.5 kilometers southwest of the Main Zone remains a high priority drill target. All samples were taken from the wash below the mine workings and are believed to be from the workings. Ore microscopy analysis was completed at the University of Central Missouri.

During the 2010 drilling campaign a road was constructed between the Main Zone and Cuendeo providing a direct access to Cuendeo for the next phase of the drilling program.

Dave Burney, Geo. the President, oversaw and supervised the exploration programs and Mr. Burney is the Managing Director for the Mexican subsidiary.
