MEXICO - SCORPIO MINING CORPORATION of Vancouver reports additional underground drill results from the Santa Teresa Extension Zone at its 100%-owned Nuestra Senora project in Sinaloa State. The best results from the 9th level give 13.8 metres grading 385 g/t Ag, 0.75% Cu, 2.09% Pb and 9.50% Zn. This intercept includes a 3.15-metre length grading 1,496 g/t Ag, 2.88% Cu, 4.30% Pb and 36.62% Zn. These are downhole lengths and uncut grades. The Santa Teresa Extension Zone is parallel to and southeast of the Hoag Zone where most of the initial underground mining is expected to occur in 2008 and 2009. A plan map of Level 9 can be found at www.scorpiomining.com/s/NuestraSenora.asp.

Peter J. Hawley, Chairman, CEO comments, "Due to its proximity to current underground development, good widths, and higher grades, the Santa Teresa Extension Zone has quickly moved up our medium-term mine planning schedule, as it could have a significant impact on providing higher-grade feed to the mill facility. The zone appears to be strongly enriched in mineralization proximal to the Sept 9 Zone, which is now interpreted as a possible mineralized feeder conduit for the Hoag, Santa Teresa and Nuestra Senora mineralized zones."
