VANCOUVER, Aug. 1 /CNW/ - Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX-V: SYH) and
Cypress Development Corp. (TSX-V: CYP) (FWB: C1Z) are pleased to issue an
update on their Red Lake/Bruce Channel drill program. The plan for this
ongoing drill program is to explore the southern extension of the Bruce
Channel deposit, which is being developed by Gold Eagle Mines Ltd. The Bruce
Channel zone is inferred to extend on strike onto the Skyharbour (20%)/Cypress
(80%) owned Broulan Reef property. The highly technical nature of the required
deep drilling in the Bruce Channel, although behind schedule, is proceeding as
The past year has seen an extensive amount of activity focused on the
Bruce Channel. Gold Eagle Mines has continued to drill and expand the
discovery zone to the south southwest toward the Broulan Reef property.

Yesterday, Mr. Kevin McArthur of Goldcorp reported that Goldcorp Inc.
(TSX: G) and Gold Eagle Mines Ltd. (TSX: GEA) have signed an agreement whereby
Goldcorp will acquire, through a friendly plan of arrangement, all outstanding
shares of Gold Eagle Mines.
"This transaction secures for Goldcorp full control of eight kilometres
of strike length in the heart of the world's richest high-grade gold
district," said Kevin McArthur, Goldcorp's president and chief executive
officer. "Nearly 200 drill holes have defined an impressive gold deposit at
Bruce Channel, with potential for additional expansion over time. Development
of this strategically important zone can now move forward with our adjoining
assets as a single, comprehensive project, sharing mine infrastructure, ore
processing facilities and human talent with Red Lake, thus minimizing capital
and operating costs and maximizing long-term shareholder value.
Red Lake mine has operated for over 50 years, and Goldcorp's continued
district consolidation efforts are designed to sustain this world-class
operation for decades into the future. We are the natural partner to develop
the Bruce Channel project with the geographic footprint preferred by our
Skyharbour Resources' and Cypress Development's Broulan Reef property is
now the only property along the productive Bruce Channel trend that is not now
controlled by Goldcorp.
