Halo Reports Continued Strong Intersections at Sherridon

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) - Lynda Bloom, President and CEO of Halo Resources Ltd. ("Halo", the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(FRANKFURT:HRL) is pleased to announce continued near-surface, mineralized intersections at the Lost deposit. Recent intersections include up to 0.7% copper, 5.2% zinc, 4.8 g/t silver and 1.1 g/t gold over 7.8 meters, starting just 10 meters from surface.

"Drilling results demonstrate both strong continuity and that mineralization projects to surface. Halo is pleased with the results of the in-fill drill program, and looks forward to the completion of HudBay's assessment," says Lynda Bloom, President and CEO. "Encouraged by good grades and enhanced precious metal concentrations, we are investigating the extensions of the Cold-Lost trend, where it continues on claims held 100% by Halo."

Recently ground geophysical surveys are being interpreted and field investigations are planned this summer on the southern projection of the Cold-Lost trend.

Technical Highlights

Halo and Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Co., Limited ("HudBay"), a subsidiary of HudBay Minerals Inc. (TSX:HBM) signed an option agreement on December 22, 2009 that allows HudBay to earn up to a 67.5% joint venture interest in a 1.1 square kilometer area that hosts the Cold and Lost mineralization. The February drill program was carried out as part of HudBay's work expenditures to maintain its interest.

A total of 4,484 meters of core drilling, in 30 drill holes, has been completed since the discovery of the deposit in 2007. Five drill holes were completed in February 2010 for a total of 548 meters. The holes were designed to test the near-surface extension of the mineralized zones and continuity of the nearly 400-meter strike length defined to date.

The significant assays are reported in the table below.
