South American Silver Corp. Completes $2.78 Million Financing

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--- Nov. 27, 2009 - South American Silver Corp. (TSX:SAC) is pleased to report that it has closed a private placement financing for gross proceeds of $2,778,500 (the "Financing") through the issuance of 6,946,250 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.40 per Unit. The issuance of 6,946,250 Units today is part of a larger offering by the Company of up to 8,126,250 Units. Additional closings may occur up to December 10, 2009.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share of the Company (a "Common Share") and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one Common Share at an exercise price of $0.60 per Common Share for a period of two years.

In connection with the Financing, the Company paid $132,000 in cash to certain brokers and issued an aggregate of 330,000 non-transferable broker warrants entitling the holder to subscribe for Units at a price of $0.40 per Unit for a period of 18 months.

The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Financing to accelerate infill drilling and engineering work related to the Pre-feasibility study at its Malku Khota silver-indium deposit and for general corporate purposes.

Ralph Fitch, President and CEO of the Company, stated "This infusion of cash allows us to aggressively pursue the Pre-feasibility program while maintaining a strong treasury. We believe that we have a strong project as indicated in our previously released Preliminary Economic Assessment and look forward to moving the project closer to production through the Pre-feasibility process. This is an exciting stage in which we start to transform our substantial resource into a mine." (Indicated Resource: 145 million oz. of silver and 845 tonnes of indium plus an Inferred Resource of 178 million oz. of silver and 968 tonnes of indium)

The securities offered have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "U.S. Securities Act"), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States of America (the "United States") or to or for the benefit of U.S. Persons (as such term is defined in Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act) except in transactions exempt from the registration requirements of the U.S. Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in any jurisdiction.
