Exploration drilling on Workman's Bench at Nolan Creek reveals gold grades up to 0.55 toz/ton and 34.51% antimony GOLD AND ANTIMONY MINERALIZATION NOW EXTENDS FROM NORTH END OF 700' LONG


1300 FEET

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Silverado Gold Mines
 Ltd.(Trading Symbols, OTC BB - SLGLF, FRANKFURT - SLGL) announced today the
 results from its diamond core drilling at Workman's Bench on its Nolan
 Creek property, in the Brooks Range, Alaska. This first phase exploration
 drilling program was carried out to drill test the previously identified
 gold-antimony quartz vein systems. Workman's Bench is part of the five mile
 long gold and antimony mineralization containing Solomon Shear Zone which
 is presently the main exploration focus of Silverado's lode exploration
 program at Nolan Creek.
Figure 1: Please see map (http://www.silverado.com/i/pdf/2008-01-14_NRM.pdf) Highlights of the Workman's Bench 2007 drilling program include: - 19 feet grading 2.69 g/t (0.08 toz/ton) gold and 3.24% antimony in hole 07SH01. This includes 6 feet grading 6.55 g/t (0.19 toz/ton) gold and 8.81% antimony. - 11.4 feet grading 1.96 g/t (0.06 toz/ton) gold and 4.99% antimony in hole 07SH14. - 5 feet grading 1.95 g/t (0.06 toz/ton) gold and 3.45% antimony in hole 07SH015. This includes 0.5 feet grading 19 g/t (0.55 toz/ton) gold and 34.51% antimony. The drill sample results at Workman's Bench show significant gold and antimony grades with significant thickness in a defined zone, named the "main zone". Seven holes, totalling 2149 feet, were drilled in the fall of 2007 to test the previously discovered gold bearing antimony-quartz veins in Workman's Bench for potential gold and antimony mineralization along strike and down-dip. Drilling revealed a main zone that contains significant gold and antimony drill intersections (see Figure 1). Silverado Gold Mines is currently in the process of driving a tunnel into the Workman's Bench mineralized zone to intersect the main zone that contains the gold bearing antimony-quartz veins. The underground exposure of the mineralized zone will play an important key role for the company in obtaining a better understanding of the nature of the structurally controlled gold and antimony mineralization in the Solomon Shear Zone. This will significantly support Silverado's exploration strategy. The following table provides a listing of mineralized intersections from the 2007 Workman's Bench drilling program:

Once all technical data had been derived from the core, the core was cut lengthwise. The half-core was sampled by pre-determined interval based on geology, and placed in sealed sample bags labeled with the assigned sample number. All samples were delivered to ALS Chemex in Fairbanks for analysis. A sample quality control/quality assurance program was implemented, and results of the program determined to be acceptable.
