Halo Completes Mapping Program at Its Duport Gold Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 30, 2006) - Marc Cernovitch, President and CEO of Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(OTCBB:HLOSF)(FWB:HRL) is pleased to announce the completion of a reconnaissance mapping and sampling program over a portion of the East Group of claims held by the Company on the Duport property near Kenora, Ontario. The program was used in part, to follow-up on detailed high-resolution EM and magnetic surveying carried out by Fugro Airborne Surveys in 2005.

Anomalous gold values have been returned from limited sampling of sulphide-bearing intrusive rocks corresponding to an area showing a uniform low magnetic signature and subtle EM response. The samples were collected on claim 3007334 which is underlain by quartz diorite rocks of the Canoe Lake Stock. The stock is a multi-phased intrusion that is host to gold mineralization near the contact with mafic volcanic rocks of the Cedar Island Formation.

Samples collected on this claim are similar in appearance to that found at other targets along the periphery of the stock including the Granozone, McKinnon Reef, Crown Point Mine, Sirdar No 1 and 2 Veins and the Gold Coin Occurrences. These targets are examples of "veins in extensional fractures and stockwork zones". The nature and exploration potential of these gold targets have not yet been fully investigated. The extensional veins of the partially-drilled Granozone deposit located 400 meters to the southwest occur as en echelon veins hosted within altered, sericitized, chloritized quartz diorite that have returned 10.54 grams per tonne gold over 2.4 meters TW and 71.9 grams per tonne gold over 0.9 meters TW from holes drilled by Denison Mines in 1982. (refer to Denison Report on Drill Results 1980-82, C.F. Desson).

The altered margin of the Canoe Lake Stock is an exciting new target area for the Company. Additional work will be directed towards the evaluation and further definition of high priority targets in this area.

In addition to the East Group, the Duport property covers the advanced-stage Duport deposit located on the West Group of claims. The deposit contributes 424,000 tonnes grading 13.4 grams per tonne gold for 183,000 ounces contained in the indicated category as well as 387,000 tonnes grading 10.7 grams per tonne gold for 133,000 ounces contained in the inferred category.

The resource has been defined over a strike length of 760 meters to a vertical depth of 450 meters. Limited, widely spaced drilling along strike to the north and south of the deposit has traced the favourable mineralized horizon over a strike length of 1,920 meters. Duport remains open in all directions.

Geophysical data from the Fugro survey has identified a number of strong, untested geophysical anomalies along the north and south trend of the deposit including some close-in satellite anomalies that parallel the deposit (refer to Press Release dated Jan 31, 2006).

Future work on the property will include a scoping study to determine the requirements carrying out an extensive underground exploration and bulk sampling program at Duport.
