Daylight Resources Trust Announces August 15, 2007 Cash Distribution Amount of $0.15 Per Trust Unit

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 17, 2007) - Daylight Resources Trust (TSX:DAY.UN) ("Daylight") is pleased to announce a cash distribution of CDN$0.15 per trust unit will be payable on August 15, 2007, to unitholders of record on July 31, 2007. The ex-distribution date is July 27, 2007.

Daylight will be accepting subscriptions from eligible unitholders to participate in our Premium Distribution™, Distribution Reinvestment and Optional Trust Unit Purchase Plan (the "Plan"). The Plan allows eligible unitholders of Daylight to direct that their cash distributions be reinvested in additional Daylight trust units at 95% of the Average Market Price (as defined in the Plan) on the applicable distribution payment date. The Plan further allows eligible unitholders to elect, under the Premium Distribution™ component of the Plan, to have these additional trust units delivered to the designated Plan broker in exchange for a premium cash distribution equal to 102% of the cash distribution that such unitholders would otherwise have received on the applicable distribution payment date if they did not participate in the Plan. Daylight reserves the right to limit the amount of new equity available under the Plan on any particular distribution date and unitholder participation may be prorated in certain circumstances.
