Cabo Drilling Panama-Pacifico Corp. Awarded Drill Contract by Galway Resources Ltd.

NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 25, 2010) - Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CBE)(FRANKFURT:DHL) ("Cabo" or the "Company") announces that Galway Resources Ltd., ("Galway") has awarded Cabo Drilling Panama-Pacifico Corp. a drilling contract for two drill rigs and a minimum of 10,000 meters, in the California Gold District of Colombia. Galway's California project is located in the northern part of the Colombian State of Santander, in the municipality of California, 50 kilometers northeast of the city of Bucaramanga.

The Company currently has two Hydracore 2000 man portable drills operating at Galway's California project. These drills are designed to separate into several components, each of which can be easily transported by helicopter, pick-up truck, mule or by small crews, which make them versatile and maneuverable. Hydracore 2000 drills are ideal for servicing mountainous areas that are otherwise inaccessible for diamond core drilling.

Cabo Drilling believes that flexibility is one of the keys to success in Central and South America. It offers a full range of diamond core drilling services using man portable and helicopter fly drills to access remote sites, small electric and hydraulic underground drills for mine expansion drilling, or large skid and track mounted drills for deep hole drilling. In Central and South America, the Company's ability to access exploration projects with highly maneuverable man portable drills, provides Cabo with the opportunity to work with exploration and mining companies wherever their projects are located.

Herb Butler, Panama and Colombia division General Manager states, "We are more than just a drilling contractor. We take care of our customers by formulating and implementing efficient and cost effective solutions for their exploration and development drilling challenges."

Cabo's "safety first" culture has gained Cabo numerous industry awards and recognition for operating with safe work practices. Cabo Drilling Panama-Pacifico Corp. has demonstrated this by recently achieving its sixth consecutive month of operating without a single lost time injury.
