Silvercorp: Open Letter from Chairman

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/25/13 -- Silvercorp Metals Inc. ("Silvercorp" or the "Company") (TSX:SVM)(NYSE:SVM) today announced that it has posted on its website at www.silvercorp.ca the following open letter from Chairman and CEO, Rui Feng to Silvercorp shareholders, addressing the class action law suits:

"To our shareholders:

As you may know, two proposed class actions have been filed in the United States District Court Southern District of New York against Silvercorp Metals, Inc., Myles Gao, Maria Tang and myself. The claims in the proposed class actions are based on false statements made in blogs published by internet blogger Jon Carnes on alfredlittle.com in September 2011. Both the Company and I have denied the allegations made by Mr. Carnes in his blog, and have responded in full on numerous occasions, including immediately after the publication of Mr. Carnes' blogs in September 2011. A subsequent independent third party forensic review undertaken by KPMG in October 2011 supported the integrity of the Company's accounting systems and financial reporting in China and North America, and in June 2012, an independent engineering consulting firm, AMC Mining Consultants (Canada) Ltd. reconfirmed the Company's resources and reserves.

Given the serious nature of the allegations made by Mr. Carnes and the harmful effect his unfounded blogs have had on the Company and our shareholders, the Company had no alternative but to commence action against Mr. Carnes and his related entities for defamation in the United States. Those proceedings are ongoing. Details on the litigation can be found here http://www.silvercorpmetals.com/investors/Short-And-Distort/default.aspx.

The proposed class actions do not rely on any new events or new facts; rather, they simply reiterate the same false claims put forward by self-interested short sellers who intended to manipulate Silvercorp's share price and harm the Company and its shareholders. To date, from public court documents, only two people representing only 7,000 Company shares initiated the class actions.

It is important to remember that these actions are, at this time, only proposed class actions. They have not yet been certified as class actions and the allegations remain unproven. Silvercorp will defend these actions vigorously if they proceed. Ultimately, we believe true value will be delivered to our shareholders by continuing to devote our energies to the business of mining, mine development and exploration.

I thank you for your continuing faith and commitment to the Company. I will continue to take all actions necessary to protect the integrity of our Company and safeguard shareholder value.

Yours sincerely,

Rui Feng

Chairman and CEO

Silvercorp Metals Inc."

Forward-looking statements or information are statements about the future and are inherently uncertain, and actual achievements of the Company or other future events or conditions may differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking statements or information due to a variety of risks, uncertainties and other factors, including, without limitation, those referred to in the Company's Annual Information Form for the year ended March 31, 2012 under the heading "Risk Factors". Although the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated, described or intended.
