Cabo Drill Contract Doubled to 14,000 Meters by Richview Resources-Second Drill Moves to Thierry Mine Property

NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2007) - Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CBE) ("Cabo" or the "Company") announces that its Ontario division has been awarded a second 7,000-meter drill contract by Richview Resources Inc. of Toronto, Ontario, increasing Cabo's NQ core drilling at Richview's Thierry Mine property near Pickle Lake, Ontario, to 14,000 meters. The Company announced its first 7,000-meter contract by news release August 14, 2007 (also see Richview's news release dated September 12, 2007).

The Company is currently running a JKS Boyles BBS-56 diamond drill on the project and has added a JKS Boyles BBS-37, unitized diamond drill. The second drill was mobilized to the property to assist with the completion of Richview's 14,000-meter drill program at an accelerated rate. Richview has fully upgraded its field facilities and is able, with independent power generation, all weather access roads and upgraded equipment, to operate uninterrupted through the winter for year-round exploration and development of the Thierry Mine property. These upgrades also facilitate the continuation of the drill program through the Fall and Winter months.

Richview is drilling beneath the previously mined workings level of 1,600 feet to determine the depth and extent of the inferred resource mineralization and is exploring areas extending from its original 2,500-foot strike zone.
