Vancouver, BC --Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX.V: SYH) (the "Company") announces that it has now contracted a geophysical program for the Company's 100% owned 2,400 acre South Bay copper-zinc located in the Dent and Agnew Townships, Red Lake District, Kenora Mining Division, Ontario. The South Bay properties cover the South Bay copper / zinc deposit and adjoining ground. The South Bay deposit was mined by Selco between 1970 and 1982 and produced approximately 1.6 million tons of 1.5% copper and 10% zinc.

The Company will proceed with the establishment of a linecut grid (approx 30 km) to begin 15th of January 2007 followed by a detailed Titan 24 DCIP & MT geophysical program now contracted to Quantec Geoscience Ltd. to further enhance the known conductors on the South Bay claims in preparation for a diamond drill program. The Titan 24 survey will commence at the end of January 2007. The Titan 24 geophysical survey is designed to locate potential sulphide rich zones and / or associated alteration at depth and allow for mapping the resistivity and chargeability of the subsurface to significant depths, assisting geologic interpretations.
Previous exploration on the South Bay property in 2000 consisted of a Crone REM geophysical survey and was followed with limited diamond drilling. One hole drilled by Nuinsco in 2000 intersected mineralization of 7200 ppm zinc over approx. 20 metres with a higher grade zone of 1.81% zinc over 4.15 metres.
Skyharbour Resources believes there is significant potential to identify new deposits on these properties. This alteration crosscuts stratigraphy. The western margin of the alteration coincides with a major lithological break between acid and mafic volcanics and is the principle target area. Current geophysical methods allow exploration to depths of up to 1000 metres, opening up a very large prospective area for further exploration.
Skyharbour will conduct an aggressive exploration program on its South Bay project throughout the winter of 2007. Data compilation of past programs has been completed and the Company is ready to go forward at the beginning of January 2007.
