Halo Extends Cold-Lost Mineralized Trend

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2010) - Lynda Bloom, President and CEO of Halo Resources Ltd. ("Halo", the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(FRANKFURT:HRLN) is pleased to announce that ground geophysical surveys have identified additional targets in the Cold-Lost mineralized corridor. Several Crone Pulse EM (TDEM) anomalies have been interpreted that further extend the prospective horizon over 1,000 m to the east of the Lost deposit. In 2007, Halo discovered the Lost deposit where recent drilling intersected massive sulphide intervals that assay up to 3.8% copper and 12.6% zinc over 4 m and 2% copper and 6% zinc over 11.8 m, near surface.

The ground geophysical surveys confirm the extension of a continuous string of airborne VTEM anomalies that extend from Lost Lake, east to, and under Sherlett Lake (see figure below). The Lost deposit discovery was a result of drill testing airborne VTEM survey anomalies and generated the near-production opportunity being advanced by Halo's joint venture partner, Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Co., Limited ("HudBay"), an affiliate of HudBay Minerals Inc. (TSX:HBM). The TDEM geophysical surveys provide greater depth penetration then the airborne surveys, with responses possible to 400 meters from surface. To-date no drilling has been done along the mineralized trend at depths greater than 200 meters and historical East Mine underground workings only extend to depths of approximately 100 meters.

"The new geophysical anomalies confirm that the Cold-Lost trend continues to the east onto ground held 100% by Halo and outside the HudBay joint venture area. These targets are within 1,000 meters of the in-fill drilling at Lost as well as the 1940s-era underground workings at the past-producing Sherritt Gordon copper-zinc mine." said Lynda Bloom, President and CEO. "Halo has developed sophisticated structural models in this area that have been enhanced by this summer's field work, resulting in a high priority drill target."

The above information has been prepared under the supervision of Lynda Bloom, P.Geo., who is designated as a "Qualified Person" with the ability and authority to verify the authenticity and validity of the data.
