Vancouver, BC -- Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SYH) today announced that it has commenced drilling on its 20% owned Broulan Reef Gold Project with Cabo Drilling establishing a JKS Boyles BBS-75 diamond drill on the Company's project located in Red Lake, Northwestern Ontario. The drill rig is capable of achieving drill hole lengths of up to 2400 metres and is situated on the east shore of the Bruce Channel on claim # 41962.
"This is an important step forward in the ongoing development of the Broulan Reef project," said Donald Huston, President of Skyharbour Resources. "We believe there is an opportunity to encounter the extension of the Gold Eagle Mines deposit now being discovered and delineated in the Bruce Channel and anticipate drilling will last approximately 12 months."

Skyharbour anticipates the drilling of two mother holes with several diverging holes to be wedged off each of the main holes. The Company intends to drill up to 10,000 metres with this Phase 1 deep drill program. A budget of $2.5 million dollars is in place for the completion of a Phase 1 deep penetration drill program on the Broulan Reef gold claims.

The target for the 2007-2008 deep drill program is the Balmer Assemblage rocks underlying the Bruce Channel sediments, as established during the drill program conducted on the Broulan Reef project in the summer and autumn of 2006. Dips within the Bruce Channel rocks on the west limb of the broad nose fold are approximately 45 degrees to the west. The shallow dipping unconformity has very significant implications for the Broulan Reef property. With known points of elevations of the Balmer Assemblage surface, it is projected that this rock type horizon will be at an inferred vertical depth of between 900 metres on the eastern edge of the property and 2000 metres on the western part of the property. At these depths, targets in the Balmer Assemblage rocks are within explorable and exploitable range over most of the property.

Gold Eagle Mines adjoins the Broulan Reef project on the immediate northern boundary. Goldcorp / Premier Gold adjoin the Broulan Reef project on the eastern boundary with their Rahill-Bonanza project. Gold Eagle, and Goldcorp / Premier Gold continue to drill just to the north and east of Skyharbour's property with very impressive results released to date.
Skyharbour's joint venture partner, Cypress Development, has now completed the establishment of an all weather access road right-of-way to the drill site for the next several holes to be completed on the Broulan Reef property. The Company has received permission from Goldcorp to access the drill site area across their patented ground. Cypress also has made arrangements to access its patented mining claim KRL 41962 on the east side of the Bruce Channel by crossing private surface rights held by Sandor Red Lake Limited and Minnie-Bowman Surveying Ltd, two private Ontario companies. Skyharbour and Cypress Development now have the ability to access the deep hole drill site for the next 18 months.
