Sola's Carolina Diamondiferous Kimberlite in Rondonia Shows Increased Tonnage Potential and Appears to Have an Associated Kimberlite Cluster

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 26, 2007) - Sola Resource Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SL) ("the Company") has now received preliminary interpretations of ground-based magnetometer surveys over the Carolina kimberlite pipe and its immediate environs.

Data from the magnetic survey of the Carolina pipe reveal that the pipe has a probable area of 2.1 hectares (5.2 acres), almost twice the area previously estimated by surface prospecting. This expansion of the pipe's potential tonnage is in part validated by a limited shallow drill program, performed in 2006, which located kimberlite outside the pipe's boundary estimated during the original geological survey of the area.

The magnetometer survey data have also revealed at least three (3) other anomalies in the immediate vicinity of the Carolina pipe with the same magnetic signature as the pipe. These anomalies have thus been interpreted as other potential kimberlite bodies which form part of a local cluster of volcanic centres.

Work is continuing on the magnetometer survey with a view towards the identification of any further pipes in this cluster. Concurrent with the geophysical investigation, Sola's operator is immediately pushing ahead with more detailed mineralogical/geochemical investigation of the magnetic anomalies and with a shallow drill program to sample the bedrocks at these localities.

Thomas Kovacs, CEO of the Company, stated that "The news of these discoveries clearly demonstrates the acumen of our exploration teams. The encouraging news of the increased tonnage potential of the diamond-bearing pipe and of an associated kimberlite cluster augurs well for the continuing success of Sola's Rondonia project during 2007."
