Sola's Expanded Kimberlite Quest Registers Further Success in Rondonia

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 9, 2007) - Sola Resource Corp's (TSX VENTURE:SL) expanded regional diamond exploration program has once more recorded success by the discovery of a new kimberlite indicator mineral (KIM) occurrence, in addition to its discoveries of KIMs announced on December 18, 2006.

Sola's field crews have just recorded another discovery on the Company's J.V. claims, almost 50km from the diamondiferous Carolina kimberlite pipe. Occurrences of abundant pyrope garnets have been found within this sector. This is a clear indication of the potential for the existence of a kimberlite body in this new area.

The exploration crew has now covered around 35% of the current claims holdings and to date has collected some 953 samples for Kimberlite Indicator Mineral analysis. Due to the marked success of the exploration program over the past few months, Sola's operator Canamera Geoscience Corp has now doubled its sampling capacity.

Thomas Kovacs, President of Sola states: "Sola is rapidly pushing ahead with the initial ground exploration phases on its Rondonia properties. Our crews are registering an impressive level of success. Soon the data from our ground- and airborne-geophysical surveys should augment the definition of our kimberlite targets and facilitate the move towards testing and sampling of other kimberlitic bodies above and beyond the Carolina pipe."
