News Release

Laopandao Exploration License Secured under the Name of Silver Dragon Subsidiary Inner Mongolia Guangda Mining, Ltd.

BEIJING, June 11, 2010 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) – Silver Dragon Resources Inc. (OTCBB: SDRG) (“the Company”) is pleased to announce that China’s Ministry of Land & Resources has issued a new exploration license for its Laopandao Property, Inner Mongolia, China, under the name of Inner Mongolia Guangda Mining, Ltd. (“Guangda”).  Guangda is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sanhe Sino-Top Resources & Technologies, Ltd. (“Sino-Top”), in which Silver Dragon has a 40% equity interest (see press release of Oct. 13, 2009). Guangda was formed for the specific purpose of developing the Company's exploration properties in China, commencing with Dadi and Laopandao, into producing mines.

Silver Dragon and its Chinese Joint Venture partners are currently implementing a major surface and underground exploration program at Laopandao during the 2010 exploration season, consisting of 5,160 metres of diamond drilling, 1,300 metres of underground exploration-development and 1,000m of trenching to define the resource potential on the property culminating in the preparation of a preliminary assessment by Q4-2010. As of today, 1,923 metres of drilling (7 holes) have been completed since the start of the current year.

Marc Hazout, President and CEO of Silver Dragon, reports that, "We are pleased that our Laopandao Property, part of our core assets in China, is secured under the name of Guangda, our local subsidiary in Inner Mongolia.  Importantly, Laopandao is fully funded to carry out the proposed 2010 surface and underground exploration-development program.”

The Company has retained Southampton Associates Inc. of Toronto, Canada, to prepare a National Instrument 43-101 report on the Laopandao Property, as well as to evaluate the viability of a central mill complex to process future production from the Dadi Polymetallic-silver Property and the Laopandao Property.

About Laopandao
Laopandao is one of the six exploration properties of Sanhe Sino-Top Resources and Technologies Ltd. ("Sino-Top"), a Chinese company that holds exclusive exploration rights to these properties, located in the prolific Erbahuo Silver District in Inner Mongolia, China.  Silver Dragon Resources Inc. has a 40% ownership interest in Sino-Top.  The Laopandao exploration area covers 44.88 square kilometres and is located approximately 650 kilometres north by northeast of Beijing in Chifeng, Inner Mongolia (see Project location Map at http://www.silverdragonresources.com/_gui/China_Project_Location_Map.jpg). Mineralization zones have been identified in the northern, central, and southern portions of the exploration area.  The most significant recent discovery was the existence of Ag-Sn-Cu-Pb mineralization on the peripheries of a previously identified tin mineralized zone.  The mineralization is mainly a continental volcanic-sedimentary rock altered strata-bound mineral type.

About Sino-Top – China Mining 2009 Award Winner*
Sanhe Sino-Top Resources & Technologies, Ltd. (``Sino-Top'') was originally incorporated in 2003 as a Chinese company wholly-owned by Huaguan Industrial Corp. (``HIC''), a subsidiary of the state-owned North China Geological Exploration Bureau.  Sino-Top became an American-Chinese joint venture in 2005.  Silver Dragon Resources Inc. acquired Sino-Top in 2006, and currently owns 40% of Sino-Top after having sold 50% of its ownership interest to its Chinese partners.  The Chinese side, led by Gansu Shengda Group Ltd. (“Shengda”), at 52%, and HIC, at 8%, collectively own 60% of Sino-Top.  Sino-Top holds exclusive exploration and development rights to six properties in northern China (Inner Mongolia), covering a total area of 139 km2.  Sino-Top won the prestigious Prospector/Explorer of the Year Award for its Dadi Silver Polymetallic Project at the China Mining Congress & Expo 2009 held in Tianjin, China, during October 20-22, 2009.
