VANCOUVER, CANADA, March 8, 2013 - Hi Ho Silver Resources Inc. ("Hi Ho" or the "Company") (CNSX: HHS) is pleased to announce it has received the permits for its 2013 spring diamond drill program on the Company's English Bay Gold Property in the LaRonge Gold Belt, Saskatchewan, Canada. The drill is currently being mobilized and is expected to commence in the middle of March and proceed into April.
Hi Ho's 800 metre spring diamond drill program was developed to consist of 4 diamond drill holes to depths of approximately 200 metres to test the quality and the distribution of gold mineralization previously intersected in this Precambrian volcanic belt. As part of this program two holes are planned for a previously explored area where drilling by a previous private company identified a substantial zone of gold mineralization.
Historical work on this property between 1997 and 2001 by a private company included ground magnetic and very low frequency electro-magnetic (VLF-EM) geophysical surveys and diamond drilling. This orientation drilling program included 35 holes totaling 4,707 metres within the 4 claims comprising the 2,087 hectare (5,157 acre) English Bay Property.
Diamond drilling targeted a 600 metre north-northeast trending magnetic and VLF-EM conductive anomaly. Gold mineralization at the English Bay Property is associated with quartz-carbonate veining, and disseminated to semi-massive pyrite-pyrrhotite mineralization hosted within fine-grained metasediments.
A number of historical significant high-grade gold intersections were discovered during the previous diamond drill programs. At a depth of 114.6 metres, drill hole CSP-3 returned assays of 37.24 grams-per-tonne (g/t) gold (1.09 ounces-per-ton; oz/t) over 2.59 metres. Drill hole CSP-35, collared 25 m to the south of CSP-3, intersected two zones of mineralization; including 2.44 metres grading 9.38 g/t gold (0.27 oz/t) at a depth of 160.0 metres, and 1.22 metres grading 19.10 g /t gold (0.56 oz/t) at 173.7 metres. Drill hole CSP-16 collared 300 metres to the south of CSP-3 intersected a shear zone at depth of 105.5 metres that returned assays of 72.86 g/t gold (2.13 oz/t) over 1.22 metres. This drilling was conducted without the supervision of a Qualified Person, and as such must be confirmed by additional drilling conducted under National Instrument 43-101 standards. The previous results cannot be relied upon for investment purposes.
The LaRonge Gold belt is home to many past and currently operating mines, including Anglo Rouyn, Contact Lake, Jolu, Roy Loyd, and Komis, with additional projects and operations currently being developed.
The technical content of this news release as it relates to the English Bay Property has been reviewed and approved by Kristopher Raffle, B.Sc., P.Geo., who is a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
This release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements that address activities, events or developments that the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including such things as planned exploration activities on the Property, the establishment of a NI 43-101 compliant resource on the Property, future business strategy, competitive strengths, goals, expansion, growth of the Company's businesses, operations, plans and with respect to exploration results, the timing and success of exploration activities generally, permitting time lines, government regulation of exploration and mining operations, environmental risks, title disputes or claims, limitations on insurance coverage, timing and possible outcome of any pending litigation and timing and results of future resource estimates or future economic studies.
Often, but not always, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "planning", "planned", "expects" or "looking forward", "does not expect", "continues", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "potential", "anticipates", "does not anticipate", or "belief", or describes a "goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be taken, occur or be achieved.
Forward-looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including, the result of drilling and exploration activities, that contracted parties provide goods and/or services on the agreed timeframes, that equipment necessary for exploration is available as scheduled and does not incur unforeseen break downs, that no labour shortages or delays are incurred, that plant and equipment function as specified, that no unusual geological or technical problems occur, and that laboratory and other related services are available and perform as contracted. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, future events, conditions, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, prediction, projection, forecast, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, the interpretation and actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; the existence of weather conditions suitable for exploration activities; future prices of minerals; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of exploration, as well as those factors disclosed in the company's publicly filed documents. Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended.
