Halo Completes Airborne Geophysics Program At Duport

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 26, 2005) - Marc Cernovitch, President & CEO of Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(OTCBB:HLOSF)(FRANKFURT:HRL) is pleased to announce that the helicopter-supported airborne magnetometer and EM survey has been completed on the Duport Property located 60 km west of Kenora, Ontario. The survey was flown at 50 meter line spacing totaling 2750 line km and covered the entire claim group.

A high-resolution DIGHEM system operated by FUGRO Airborne Surveys was used to identify sulphide mineralization related to regional faulting and contacts between contrasting lithologies known to be associated with the Duport epithermal gold environment.

The objectives of the program included:

1. Delineate extensions and define parallel zones in proximity to the Duport deposit;

2. Identify additional satellite gold targets associated with regional deformation zones and their subsidiary structures to the north and south of the Duport deposit;

3. Guide the Phase II drill program toward gold targets considered to have potential for the discovery of high-grade ounces. The South Main Lens targeted during the Phase I program intersected 20.02 g/t Au over a core length of 3.24 m TW in Hole 05-02 and 7.37 g/t Au over 2.25 m TW in Hole 05-17. The Duport deposit remains open in all directions;

4. Efficiently maintain the large area landholdings in good standing with respect to assessment requirements.

The airborne database is presently being digitally processed and will be integrated with satellite imagery studies to facilitate an up-to-date structural interpretation of the property. The determination of structural sites favorable for the discovery of higher-grade gold mineralization over thicker intersections will be the focus of the study.

Initial results of the airborne survey will be discussed in an upcoming news release.
