    Symbol: KWPW:OTCBB

    VANCOUVER, Jan. 23 /CNW/ - Keewatin Windpower Corp. (the "Company")
(OTCBB: KWPW) announced today that Sky Harvest Windpower Corp., a private
Canadian company ("Sky Harvest") has received an environmental report focused
on avian and bat activity on Sky Harvest's proposed wind farm site prepared by
Golder Associates of Calgary, Alberta. These studies continued through the
full year of 2007. Management of the Company have reviewed the report and are
pleased to announce that in management's opinion the report indicates that the
windfarm will co-exist with the natural habitat of the species in the area.
    The Golder Associates study also includes but is not limited to breeding
grounds and nesting areas. The frequent attendance of the surveyors helps to
identify other kinds of wildlife that may need to be taken into concern. The
bat activity report identified few incidences, and the Company and Sky Harvest
will be continuing the monitoring in the summer months.
    Sky Harvest and Keewatin have entered into a letter of intent pursuant to
which Keewatin intends to acquire all of Sky Harvest's issued and outstanding
shares. Closing of the transaction is subject to a number of conditions
including: the satisfactory completion of the parties' due diligence, the
parties entry into a definitive agreement respecting the terms of the
acquisition and receipt by the Company of the financial statements of Sky
Harvest required under applicable US securities rules. There is no assurance
that the transaction will be completed as planned or at all.
    Mr. Craddock, President and C.E.O. of Keewatin explains, "The importance
of the report results are that we can responsibly adhere to recommended
setback distances from natural species when positioning turbines and that we
can deploy the necessary number of turbines. Further we are confident that the
turbines will have minimal impact on avian flight paths."
    Adds Mr. Craddock, "We will continue to monitor and collect data on the
wildlife in and surrounding our proposed windfarm. We can adjust turbine
positioning, roadways and powerlines so that the environment is protected."

    KEEWATIN WINDPOWER CORP.
