Skyharbour Resources' Drilling Program Begins on South Bay Cu-Zn-Ag Project, Red Lake, NW Ontario



    TSX-V Trading Symbol: SYH

    VANCOUVER, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SYH) (the
"Company") announces the start of its drilling program on its 100% owned South
Bay copper-zinc-silver project, located in Dent and Mitchell Townships about
80 km east-northeast of Red Lake, Northwestern Ontario. The 3,200 acres
property covers the former South Bay copper-zinc-silver mine which produced
1.6 million tons of ore grading 2.3% Cu, 14.5% Zn, and 3.5 oz/t Ag (Selco
1978).

    Several ice pads have been constructed to accommodate the diamond drill
rig with approximately 8 sites. Ice roads have been constructed to allow for
movement of the drill crews from camp to the drill sites. At this time there
is approximately 30 inches of blue ice at all drill pads on Confederation
Lake.

    In preparation for the drilling program, Skyharbour completed a Quantec
"Titan-24" geophysical survey over the property in February 2007. A total of
22 line kilometres were surveyed. The primary objective of the Titan-24 survey
was to identify Direct Current, Induced Polarization (DCIP) and
Magnetotelluric (MT) anomalies, which may represent copper-zinc-silver
Volcanic Massive Sulfide (VMS) mineralization similar to the South Bay
copper-zinc-silver deposit. The Titan-24 survey responses over the South Bay
Mine deposit were used as a "Calibration Model" for prioritizing anomalies in
the area.

    The known VMS base metal deposits in the Confederation assemblage are
found in and near volcanic centres and are reflected by the presence of coarse
rhyolitic breccias intruded by sub-volcanic quartz porphyries. The largest
known deposit of this type in the area was the South Bay Mine which produced
1.6 million tons of ore grading 2.3% Cu, 14.5% Zn, and 3.5 oz/t Ag (Selco
1978). This deposit was mined from 1970 to 1982 to a depth of approximately
500 metres.

    Past drilling has generally tested targets to depths of 300 metres with
the odd drill hole being deeper. The Titan 24 survey was chosen for its 600+
metre depth penetration. The Titan 24 survey covered a conceptually favorable
target area featuring pervasive sodium depletion crosscutting stratigraphy and
a regional acid-mafic lithologic contact. The survey has successfully
identified at least 11 anomalous zones that have been recommended for a
follow-up drill program. Four of these zones have been classified as first
priority targets (TA-1, 2, 3, and 4). These drill targets show a strong IP
response coincident with DC and/or MT low resistivity; this signature is
consistent with stringer to massive sulfide mineralization and alteration
zones (i.e. similar to the South Bay Mine response).

    Three dimensional modeling of the geophysical responses and known past
drilling show that most of the targets have not been tested at all, or were
very poor tests of the Titan 24 anomalies.

    Skyharbour Resources is initially planning a drilling program consisting
of 10 holes totaling 5000 metres to test the high priority Titan 24 anomalies.
Probing of all holes is also planned to further define the targets.
