Tyhee Announces Diamond Drilling Has Commenced On The Clan Lake Main Zone,
Yellowknife Gold Project, NWT Canada

TSX Venture: TDC

VANCOUVER, Feb. 4 /CNW/ - Tyhee Development Corp. (TSX Venture, TDC) today announced the winter road from Yellowknife to its Discovery Camp has been installed and is accessible for light trucks. This has enabled the Company to start drilling on the Clan Lake Main Zone.

"The winter road allows us to resupply our camp and provides easy access and mobility to our drill sites" reported Dave Webb, President & CEO. "We are operating with one diamond drill at Clan Lake with two additional drills available in mid to late February. The widths and grades of the gold mineralization identified in previous drilling on the Clan Lake Main Zone, together with the additional 700 metres of the Main Zone that was mapped and sampled from surface but not drilled, supports this aggressive program."

We expect to complete approximately two drillholes per week per drill rig assuming normal operating conditions, with assays to be received four to six weeks after the hole is completed (assuming normal logging and sampling performance). The on site assay lab will not be started during the winter road season as the samples can be driven directly to Acme Analytical Laboratories facilities in Yellowknife on an as needed basis.

Diamond drilling at the Ormsby Zone is near completion with the work focused on testing sites for building foundations and other infrastructure as well as two combined exploration/engineering drillholes. Permitting work continues in conjunction with the above mentioned program, focusing on the Ormsby and Nicholas Lake Zones.
