:: Silver Falcon Mining Announces Mill Production Start-Up

Silver Falcon Mining, Inc. has announced an April 19, 2010 start date of its 100% owned Diamond Creek Mill facility, located in Murphy, ID. Over the last 6-Months, the Company purchased/re-zoned property, acquired necessary permits, developed site improvements, drilled well/installed water system and built the mill building. Subsequently, both the internal and external mill circuit components, 100% owned and paid-in-full, have been in place for the forthcoming production of precious metals.

From this point-in-time, the Company will proceed with 4 weeks of verification of the equipment and mill commissioning. This will include final verifications, confirming that all the equipment components are mechanically sound, and that all electrical circuits function properly. This will be followed by powering-up the facility to check on the full functionality of the mill circuit.

April 19, 2010, SFMI officially starts production of its Diamond Creek Mill facility. Preliminary production will begin, which will help determine the throughput consumption rates and maximization of the recovery of metals. At first, low grade materials will be used to ascertain maximum optimization of the equipment. Throughput grades and tonnages will increase accordingly over time.

The Company will provide updated visual representation of the completed and operational mill circuit on its website. A planned shareholders meeting will be announced in a forthcoming press release, inviting all shareholders and other interested parties to visit the Company's facility. Management will not grant immediate visitation to the facility until that time.

Pierre Quilliam, President, states, "I would like to congratulate and thank all those involved from the contractors to the shareholders for their continuous support. This commitment and dedication provided SFMI with a complete facility, ready to start on April 19, 2010. We are now within reach our first doré bar."

Silver Falcon Mining, Inc. is an exploration and development Company specializing in high-grade Gold and Silver mining properties in North America.
