Cabo Division Drilling Jackson's Arm for Kermode in Newfoundland

NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 21, 2006) - Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CBE) ("Cabo" or the "Company") announces that its Petro Drilling Company Ltd. division in Springdale Newfoundland, has been awarded a diamond drilling contract by Kermode Resources Ltd. of Vancouver, BC for a minimum of 5,000 metres at Kermode's Jackson's Arm project in NW Newfoundland.

Kermode's Jackson's Arm property is 3 kilometres west of the fishing village of Jackson's Arm and is linked by 75 kilometres of paved road to the Trans Canada Highway. A drill was mobilized to the Jackson's Arm property the week of August 14, 2006, with the possibility of a second rig being added at a later date. The Kermode Phase 4 drill program will test a recently discovered feeder structure at the north end of the Apsy Zone by drilling at right angles to most previous drilling. Gold mineralization being targeted is hosted by sedimentary rock in a geological setting similar to the Carlin type deposits of Nevada. Kermode's primary exploration focus at Jackson's Arm is to delineate tonnage and grade of known gold mineralization with particular emphasis on the newly discovered cross structures. (See Kermode Resources Ltd. news release dated August 15, 2006).
