Skyharbour Resources Ltd. announces that a geophysical crew has been mobilized onto its 20% owned and Cypress Development Corp. (TSX.V: CYP) 80% owned McKenzie Island gold project, located in Red Lake, northwestern Ontario. A line-cut grid has now been established at the east end of the companies McKenzie Island property, immediately to the southwest of the Exall Resources / Southern Star Resources ongoing drill program on their Gold Eagle property located in the Bruce Channel area. The Geophysical program now underway will consist of a detailed Magnetometre survey and an Induced Polarization (IP) survey. The detailed geophysical surveys are being carried out over the MacAndrew East Zone and will further delineate prioritized diamond drill targets already identified through past exploration programs.
The Skyharbour / Cypress Development joint venture has undertaken an initial evaluation of the MacAndrew East Zone. The past exploration programs consisted of till sampling by overburden drilling and Mobile Metal Ion (MMI) soil surveys, resulting in the establishment of several areas of elevated gold-in-tills settings on the east part of the property.
Further exploration on the McKenzie Island property will be directed at identifying new target settings and drill testing those of merit. It is the Company's position that there remains significant potential for gold deposits to be discovered on its McKenzie Island property.
Skyharbour Resources intends to commence its winter 2005 / 2006 diamond drill program on the MacAndew East zone on its McKenzie Island property as soon as freeze up is complete.
