Wildcat Drilling Highlights From Hardshell - Includes 49.9 m of 239 g/t Ag, 2.09% Pb, 2.29% Zn and 11.62% Mn

02/27/2008

Vancouver, B.C., February 27, 2008 - Wildcat Silver Corporation (CNQ: WILD) (“Wildcat” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from the first four of the five holes drilled at the Company’s 80% owned Hardshell silver/lead/zinc/manganese (“Ag/Pb/Zn/Mn”) project in southern Arizona.

The drill program was completed in an effort to verify previous drilling results, obtain material for further metallurgical testing and explore untested deeper extensions of Hardshell mineralization. Grade-thickness data for the deposit indicates that the Hardshell Ag/Pb/Zn/Mn manto is related to deeper, high-angle structures that project to historical mines and known deposits in the surrounding district. Previous drilling did not completely test these structures below the Hardshell manto (Main Manto), and as such present excellent exploration targets for relatively high-grade chimneys, veins and additional manto zones.

Assay results for the first four holes are summarized below, showing intercepts in the known Main Manto and other zones. Drill hole number 99 discovered previously unknown mineralization below the Main Manto, starting at 146.9 meters (‘m’) of 5.49 m of 214 gram per ton (‘g/t’) Ag, 10.91% Zn, 6.71% Pb and 19.16 % Mn. In addition, a deeper new zone was discovered starting at 183 m returning 20.73 m of 86 g/t Ag, 2.14% Zn, 0.92% Pb, and 6.25% Mn. These new intercepts demonstrate the exploration potential for intercepting deeper mineralized zones. Complete results from the fifth hole are pending.

The four holes shown in the table above totalled 4,459 feet of diamond drilling in the main Hardshell deposit, with the fifth exploration hole drilled on trend to the northwest. The results from the new holes intercepted similar geology and mineralization over comparable intervals to that previously drilled within the Main Manto zone. These intercepts were characterized by high Ag, Pb, Zn, and Mn grades, subject to natural grade variations characteristic of these types of deposits. The results of this validation drilling confirmed the general viability of the historic drill results.

Wildcat plans to follow up with further drilling programs in the near term in order to provide additional infill holes within the deposit, to better delineate the margins, and to further examine other deeper manto zones.

ABOUT WILDCAT SILVER CORPORATION – Wildcat is developing the Hardshell silver project in Santa Cruz County, Arizona, USA. The Hardshell property is held by Arizona Minerals Inc., of which Wildcat is an 80 percent owner. The Company initiated a 7,500 foot (2,288 meter) drill program in July 2007 after publishing a positive preliminary assessment (“PA”) by Pincock Allen & Holt earlier in the year. The PA cited a substantial inferred resource of nearly 1.2 billion pounds of manganese along with 53.5 million ounces of silver (10.3 million tons @ 6.26% manganese and 5.18 ounces per ton silver). Wildcat trades on the CNQ Exchange in Canada under the symbol WILD.
