Canary Resources Launches Drilling Program Based on Encouraging Results

STILWELL, KS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2006 -- Canary Resources Inc. (OTC: CYRR) ("Canary") announced today that it has launched its drilling program for coal-bed methane in the Eastern Forest City Basin of Kansas and Missouri. Canary has nine wells, which are presently shut-in pending pipeline connection. Initial indications are positive: all of these wells have good gas shows and are expected to be commercially productive.

"Based on the encouraging results we have received from our test wells, Canary will now expand its drilling program. We expect to drill up to 20 wells a month on leases we own in the Eastern Forest City Basin," commented William Chandler, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Canary Resources Inc. "We are also close to finalizing plans for pipeline access, and expect to have wells on production as soon as we are able to hook up."

Canary Resources Inc. is an independent Oil and Natural Gas Company engaged in the acquisition, exploitation, production and development of oil and natural gas properties. Canary has an active leasing program and farm-out agreements covering acreage in Johnson and Miami Counties, Kansas, and in Bates and Cass Counties, Missouri, for which it is the operator. It plans to drill numerous shallow coal-bed methane gas wells in these areas on 40 acre spacing or less. The gas wells are anticipated to be drilled to depths of between 600 and 1,000 feet. Canary has offices in Houston, Texas, and Stilwell, Kansas.
