Conference Press Release
Thursday, July 7, 2011

Registration is open for the ninth annual Silver Summit 2011, the two-day "everything silver" conference presented by Cambridge House International, to be held Thursday and Friday, October 20-21, at the historic Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington. The Silver Summit is described by Pan American Silver founder Ross Beaty as "the best silver conference in the world."

Experts in all aspects of silver mining, silver investing, silver exploration, and silver's use in industrial, medical, and monetary applications will address the conference. Joining them will be more than 70 silver companies and an audience of a thousand from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, Asia, and Australia.

Among the speakers will be silver luminaries Jeff Berwick, founder of and now publisher of the Dollar Vigilante; David Morgan of the Morgan Report; Bix Weir of the Road to Roota newsletter; Jeff Christian, managing director of the CPM Group; Louis James of Casey Research; Bill Murphy, chairman of the Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee; Earl Bennett, dean emeritus of the Idaho College of Mines; and Jon Nadler, market analyst for Kitco Metals.

Also, Greg McCoach of the Mining Speculator; James West of the Midas Letter; Roger Weigand of the Trader Tracks letter; and John Kaiser of the Bottom Fishish Report.

Shauna Hillman, co-founder and director of the Silver Summit, said, "The Silver Summit is not just educational and profitable for our guests. It's also fun. This year we'll again offer optional underground and surface tours of real, operating silver mines in northern Idaho's Silver Valley, plenty of give and take between bulls and bears, cutting-edge information about silver, and the fellowship of silver bulls getting together from around the world. Friendships are made, private placements are done, and the CEOs of our silver companies will be on hand to meet their current and prospective shareholders."

Returning Silver Summit attendees should ensure that they are registered through the Cambridge House Internet site --

Sona Drills 85.4g Gold/Ton Over 4 Metres at Elizabeth Gold Deposit,
Extending the Mineralization of the Southwest Vein on the Property

Company Press Release, October 27, 2010

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Sona Resources Corp. reports on five drillling holes in the third round of assay results from the recently completed drill program at its 100 percent-owned Elizabeth Gold Deposit Property in the Lillooet Mining District of southern British Columbia. Highlights from the diamond drilling include:

-- Hole E10-66 intersected 17.4g gold/ton over 1.54 metres.

-- Hole E10-67 intersected 96.4g gold/ton over 2.5 metres, including one assay interval of 383g of gold/ton over 0.5 metres.

-- Hole E10-69 intersected 85.4g gold/ton over 4.03 metres, including one assay interval of 230g gold/ton over 1 metre.

Four drill holes, E10-66 to E10-69, targeted the southwestern end of the Southwest Vein, and three of the holes have expanded the mineralized zone in that direction. The Southwest Vein gold mineralization has now been intersected over a strike length of 325 metres, with the deepest hole drilled less than 200 metres from surface.

"The assay results from the Southwest Zone quartz vein continue to be extremely positive," says John P. Thompson, Sona's president and CEO. "We are expanding the Southwest Vein, and this high-grade gold mineralization remains wide open down dip and along strike to the southwest."

Lewis E. Lehrman on How to Solve the U.S. Debt Problem

Lewis E. Lehrman, chairman of the Lehrman Institute, sponsor of The Gold Standard Now project, advises that to reduce the $1 1/2 trillion U.S. deficit, the Republican Party must initiate an investment program.

Working Americans are not saving, which enables the banks to lead the country into a cycle of debt, leverage, boom, panic, and bust.

Lehrman says: "Eliminating the budget deficit of a trillion and a half dollars cannot be done overnight. The proposal by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan was very dramatic -- one Republican called it radical -- but it was not happily received. The solution, of course, is to design an American program for prosperity, because you can solve these entitlement problems with a growing economy. We need a tremendous program of investment, and investment comes from savings. When you pay savers, middle-income professionals, and working people 0 percent at the bank, you are not going to encourage them to save. Then we are left with a bank cycle of debt, leverage, boom, panic, and bust."
