Halo Appoints Lynda Bloom as President & CEO

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 1, 2007) - Marc Cernovitch, Chairman of Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(OTCBB:HLOSF)(FRANKFURT:HRL) is pleased to announce the appointment of Lynda Bloom to the position of President and CEO.

As Chairman of the Corporation, Marc Cernovitch will continue to play an active role in advancing the corporate strategy and to deploy his strengths in venture markets, financing and corporate development for the Company.

"The rapidly developing project in Sherridon, Manitoba, and the Red Lake joint venture with Goldcorp require the experienced leadership and technical background that Lynda Bloom brings to the Company." says Cernovitch. "This is about adding strength and greater depth to Halo's management team."

Lynda Bloom has served as a Director since November 2006. After earning a M.Sc. at Queen's University in Geological Sciences in 1981, Bloom planned and interpreted geochemical surveys worldwide and developed expertise on sampling and assay methods. She has been a director and officer of junior mining companies for over 10 years and has experience at both the board and operational levels. She is a director of the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and recently completed her term as Chair of the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy-Toronto Branch, as well as serving on several government advisory boards.

"I was attracted to working with the team at Halo based on their success in consolidating the impressive land package at Sherridon of 200 square kilometers that hosts both a copper-zinc past producer and historical base metal resources" says Bloom. "This is a unique Canadian opportunity as there has been essentially no exploration for VMS deposits in this area for 60 years yet the property is connected to Flin Flon by road and rail. The combination of potentially low capital costs and incredible upside for new discoveries is a winning combination."

Halo Resources Ltd.

Halo is a Canadian-based resource company focused on the acquisition of near production base and precious base metal deposits. Currently the Company owns or has an interest in 3 projects: Duport, which is an advanced stage gold project; Red Lake, which is a gold exploration project, and the Sherridon project that comprises a combination of mature and grassroots Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) copper, zinc and gold exploration opportunities. The Company is operated by an experienced management team and backed by a strong network of mining financiers. The Company's growth strategy is to develop a diversified portfolio of advanced mining projects.
