Halo Discovers New Bob North Zone at Sherridon, Manitoba

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 31, 2007) - Lynda Bloom, President and CEO of Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(OTCBB:HLOSF)(FRANKFURT:HRL) is pleased to announce the discovery of a new massive sulphide zone approximately 100 metres northeast of the Bob Lake deposit. The new Bob North massive sulphide zone has been intersected in four drill holes over a 250 metre strike length at a shallow depth between 172 metres and 221 metres. While final assay results are pending, three additional holes have intercepted a similar massive sulphide zone with thicknesses ranging from 5.4 to 14.8 m. The new Bob North Zone currently remains open in all directions and represents a new exploration target area that once fully tested could add significantly to the tonnage potential of the Bob Lake deposit.

HIGHLIGHTS

- Total of 4 new holes intersect new zone over 250 m

- Halo intersects 6.5 m of 0.8% copper and 3.0% zinc, within 11.6 m of 0.8% copper and 1.8% zinc

Results from DH07-58 are included in the table below. Assays are pending for an additional three holes.

"The Bob North discovery is a direct result of building on our knowledge base from our ongoing exploration and interpretation activities at Sherridon", says Lynda Bloom, President & CEO. "Our recently integrated geological model has focused on a structural reinterpretation which improves our understanding of the controls on mineralization. Our new exploration strategy is focused on discovering new zones and identifying higher grades and thickness. This new model has proved successful with the new Bob North discovery and will be applied to all six known Sherridon deposits in addition to new targets including the recently announced Lost Lake discovery."

Drilling continues at Bob Lake and Bob North with a second drill being mobilized by mid-November.

Technical Highlights

Results from the first drill hole completed at the Bob North massive sulphide zone are reported in the assay table below. Assays are pending for the last 10 m of hole DH07-58 and the remaining samples from three other holes that intersected the zone.

About the Sherridon VMS Property

The Sherridon VMS Property covers an area of over 20,876 hectares and hosts the past-producing Sherridon Mine that was operated by Sherritt Gordon Mines from 1933 to 1950 and produced 7.7 million tonnes of ore grading 2.46%copper and 0.8% zinc. Results from an airborne geophysical survey completed in the summer of 2006 identified an additional 122 targets. The property is located only 70 km northeast of the mining and metallurgical complex in Flin Flon operated by HudBay Minerals Inc. Future development of the property is facilitated by the presence of an all-weather road and railroad access as well as a power line and communications tower.
