Tyler Announces Retention of Associated Mining Consultants for Preliminary Resource Estimate

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - May 31, 2006) - Tyler Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYS) is pleased to announce that it has retained Associated Mining Consultants Ltd. (AMCL) to direct its Preliminary Resource Estimate for the Main Zone Bahuerachi porphyry-skarn complex where a 35,000 meter drilling program is currently underway. AMCL were the authors of the initial Bahuerachi Property Independent Report dated November 2003 and posted on Tyler's website.

Digital elevation models as well as the current drilling database for the Bahuerachi project have been delivered to AMCL in order to begin work immediately. AMCL currently estimates that the Resource Estimate Study can be expected to take between 10 to 14 weeks to complete. As the drilling program continues in the field, additional drilling information will be integrated as part of the study until approximately mid-July.

The resource estimate will integrate both analytical (assay) and geological data generated from all surface work and drilling information to date from the Main Zone in order to create a 3 dimensional wireframe and solid subsurface block model. Estimates of the amount of potentially recoverable metals (copper, gold, silver, molybdenum and zinc) contained within the oxide blanket, the mineralized skarns and mineralized porphyry will be computed from this 3D model. The modeling software selected for this exercise is a dynamic platform which will allow additional data to be added through to the end of the drilling program as it progresses, as well as be used in subsequent scoping studies through the use of mine modeling modules.
