Drill Program Begins On McKenzie Island Property, (Expanded From 2,500 feet To 13,000 feet)

January 20, 2005

Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (the Company) announces that a expanded drill program has begun on its 5,100 acres Red Lake McKenzie Island property jointly held Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (SYH 20%) and Cypress Development Corp. (CYP 80%).

The expanded program will entail drilling on two distinct regions of the property.

First, the Company will drill approx. 2,500 metres on the southern portion of its McKenzie Island property known as the St. Paul's Bay region. This section of the property is on strike and adjacent to the west of a major drill program currently underway on the Sabina Resources / Wolfden Resources Newman-Madsen property where initial results have discovered a new gold zone; 18.21 g/tonne gold (0.53 oz Au/ton) over 3.65m.

Second, Skyharbour Resources will drill approx. 1,500 metres on the northeastern portion of its McKenzie Island property. This section is west and adjacent to a major drill program beginning on the Southern Star / Exall Resources Gold Eagle property (see their news release Dec. 21, 2004) where an initial resource of 165,000 oz of gold at 16.67 g/tonne has been defined. The Company believes that the granodiorite structure that is being methodically drilled by Southern Star / Exall Resources has the potential to continue to extend to the west onto the Skyharbour / Cypress property.

Skyharbour Resources is a mineral exploration company that focuses on the acquisitions of and exploration of gold projects in Northwestern, Ontario. It has options or interests in 8 mineral properties totaling approx. 26,500 acres located in the Red Lake greenstone belt.
