Skyharbour Resources Ltd. reports that it has closed its 1,000,000 unit non-brokered private placement announced by news release dated January 26, 2005. The Company issued 1,000,000 units at a price of $0.05 per unit. Each unit consists of one share and one share purchase warrant which entitles the holder to purchase an additional share of the Company at a price of $0.10 until February 16, 2006. In addition, the Company issued 40,000 warrants and paid the sum of $2,000 to Canaccord Capital Corporation as a finder's fee in this transaction. The shares and any shares to be issued upon exercise of the warrants will be subject to a hold period and shall not trade before June 16, 2005.

The Company also announces that it will not continue with its option on the Tomato Lake property, consisting of three claim blocks, located in the McDonough Township, Red Lake Area, Kenora Mining Division.
