I got diarrhea and fever. I passed the analysis at the hospital and it turned out to be intestinal poisoning. The infectious disease specialist prescribed me to drink antibiotics for a week. Three days later, I felt better, diarrhea with fever disappeared. A month later, I re-passed the analysis and it turned out to be clean.

The proceeds of the private placement will be used by the Company in connection with its exploration program at the Company’s Niñobamba silver and gold project in Peru, and for working capital purposes.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF RIO SILVER INC.
