Skyharbour Resources Ltd.: Rainy River Overburden Drill Program to Begin in NW Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 1, 2007) - Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SYH) (the "Company") announces that it has contracted with Heath and Sherwood Drilling to complete an overburden drill program on the Company's 100% owned "D1", "D2", and "E" claim blocks located in the Rainy River district of northwestern Ontario.

Rainy River Claims Map:

The overburden drill program will consist of approximately 35 holes for a total of 1,000 metres to be drilled. The properties appear to be underlain mainly by mafic effusive volcanic rocks. Much of the exploration in the area to date (Nuinsco / Rainy River Resources) has been by overburden drilling due to limited geological exposure. Skyharbour intends to conduct infill overburden drilling. Equipment is being mobilized to the Rainy River properties at this time.

Previous gold values encountered in tills in this area indicate potential for gold rich volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits. The bulk of the gold mineralization outlined to date on the Rainy River Resources property shows a clear alignment with crosscutting structures evident from regional geophysical (magnetic) data. Skyharbour has now established a grid on one of the properties and is proceeding with a detailed geophysical program at this time to further establish the stratographic and structural features as seen in previous airborne geophysics.

Results from the overburden drill program will further enhance drill targets on the Rainy River claims in preparation for a diamond drill program scheduled for early March 2007.
