Tyler Reports Results for 1st of 7 Outstanding Drill
Holes at Bahuerachi

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 6, 2005) - Tyler Resources Inc.
("Tyler") (TSX VENTURE:TYS) reports the results for its first reverse
Circulation drill hole which was designed as a test to twin and deepen
diamond drill core hole 04-BAH-13 as part of its current Phase 2, 30
hole drill program.

Full assay results have been received, compiled and interpreted for
reverse circulation (RC) drill hole 04-RC-1. Drill holes RC 2,3,4,5 and
Core holes 15 and 16 (partial) are still outstanding and are expected to
come in batches over the next 2 weeks.

Assays from the first reverse circulation drill hole on the project
include 30.4 meters grading an average of 0.28% and a further 15.2
meters grading an average of 0.25% copper and 0.13% zinc with the hole
ending in mineralization as detailed in the table below and the section
attached. Drill hole 04-RC-1 crossed the chalcocite blanket and ended in
a mineralized limestone hosted skarn without intersecting the main skarn
breccia which was subsequently intersected in RC-2 as shown on the
interpreted geological drill section. For drill hole location, please
refer to the plan map which accompanied the December 14th, 2004 news

DRILL HOLE 04-RC-1, most significant intersections:

Hole # From To Interval Cu Mo Zn Pb Ag Au Rock
(m) (m) (m) (%) (%) (%) (g/t) (g/t) (g/t) Type
04-RC 1 63.8 94.24 30.4 0.28 Chalcocite
109.5 124.6 15.2 0.25 0.13 2.65 skarn

Although the results obtained are still within the range of values
sought in this type of geological environment, the results are believed
to significantly understate the true grades of mineralization within the
intersected mineralized units. Hole 04-RC-1 is a twin of core hole #13
for which results were previously published and shows a substantial
downward bias in grade. Both drill hole locations and traces are shown
on the attached section. The variability of parallel sections less than
2 meters apart between RC and Core indicates an average grade which is
roughly 60% less with the reverse circulation method than with core
drilling. Results from the core hole on this section, given the good to
excellent core recoveries, are considered to be the most accurate.

Material loss of fines can be expected from reverse circulation drilling
in a chalcocite blanket environment where the main copper bearing
mineral chalcocite occurs as soft coatings on pyrite grains. Some of the
variability was caused by generally difficult drilling and poor ground
conditions and further twinning will be conducted on another core hole
to determine the range of variability which should be expected going
forward with RC drilling.

Although the results for the first Reverse Circulation drill hole are of
lower grade than the previously reported core drilling results, the
presence of mineralized widths with grades consistent with those sought
in this type of environment remains a positive step forward in the
exploration work at Bahuerachi. Changes to the RC drilling program have
been implemented with drill holes RC 2 to 5 using a larger down the hole
hammer than RC 1, creating larger chips which are less prone to material
loss. Tyler will keep working closely with its independent consultants
and the drilling company to increase the sampling accuracy of reverse
circulation drilling to an acceptable level.

The field program is presently expected to restart with crew
remobilization on January 8th and drilling to recommence around January

The Qualified Person responsible for the design and implementation of
the Field Program as well as the preparation of this news release was J.
P. Jutras, P.Geol., and President of the Company. The work program was
carried out with the participation of Dr. Shane William Ebert, Ph.D,
P.Geo and Director, and Mr. Brent Gonek, B.Sc, Geology, G.I.T.,
consultants to the Company.
