SOLITARIO REPORTS HIGH-GRADE DRILLING RESULTS
ON ITS BONGAR� ZINC PROJECT, BRAZIL

Denver, Colorado: Solitario Exploration & Royalty Corp. ("Solitario;" NYSE MKT: XPL; TSX: SLR) announced continued outstanding drilling results on its high-grade Bongar� zinc project in Peru. Included in these results are core holes V-451, that intersected 30.7 meters grading 13.1% zinc, 5.0% lead and 32.6 gpt silver and hole V-453 that intersected 22.0 meters grading 13.7% zinc, 1.5% lead and 14.5 gpt silver.

All drill holes reported in this news release were drilled from the surface in the Karen Milagros mineralized area ("KM-Zone"). The drilling program was managed and entirely funded by Solitario's joint venture partner Votorantim Metais ("Votorantim"). Better intercepts in this round of surface drilling are presented below.


Chris Herald, President and CEO of Solitario commented, "It's not often that intercepts of plus 50% zinc + lead or 30 meters of 18% zinc + lead are intersected. But more important than these reported exceptional grades and thicknesses, is the fact that these results also demonstrated favorable continuity of mineralization in the KM-Zone."

Surface drilling began in the first quarter of 2013 and was completed in the second quarter. During this period 61 core holes were drilled totaling 7,545 meters. Four of the holes did not reach the target depth. Of the 58 drill holes that reached their target depth, 40 holes intersected mineralization grading in excess of 2.0% zinc + lead over at least two meters, or equivalent. This latest round of surface drilling was focused in the central portion of the KM-Zone that had previously been sparsely drilled. Other important mineralized intercepts can be accessed here. None of the results contained in this news release were previously reported.

In addition to the KM surface drilling program, Votorantim also conducted underground drilling within the San Jorge zone. Results from this program should be ready for release within the next two weeks. Both the KM and San Jorge mineralized zones are contained within the Florida Canyon mineralized system which remains open to expansion in all directions.

A drill hole map can be accessed at http://www.solitarioxr.com/art/Bongara08_2013.pdf. Additional project information is found at http://www.solitarioxr.com/bongara.html.

Drill hole information contained within this release is reported under Votorantim's quality control program reviewed by Mr. Walt Hunt, COO for Solitario Exploration & Royalty Corp., who is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Samples are derived from 50% splits of HQ and NQ (2.5 and 1.9 inch) diameter core. Samples are then shipped via secured third-party land and air transportation companies and analyzed by ALS Chemex Inc., North Vancouver, Canada, an ISO9002 registered company.

Bongar� Joint Venture Agreement with Votorantim Metais

Votorantim Metais can earn up to a 70% interest in the project by committing to place the project into production based upon a positive feasibility study. After earning 70%, Votorantim Metais has further agreed to finance Solitario's 30% participating interest for construction. Solitario will repay the loan facility through 50% of its net cash flow distributions.
