Halo Reports Geophysical Surveys Underway at West Red Lake Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - March 13, 2007) - Marc Cernovitch, Chairman of Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(OTCBB:HLOSF)(FRANKFURT:HRL) is pleased to announce that 60 line-km of geophysical surveys is underway at the 1,500 square hectares West Red Lake Project, located 35 km west of Red Lake, Ontario.

"Completion of the geophysical surveys this winter allows us to accelerate evaluation of the property and identify favourable gold targets, in particularly where surveys extend over lakes. We now have the opportunity to define targets based on prospecting and geophysical anomalies so that we can fast-track the project for drilling in a few months," said Lynda Bloom, President & CEO.

As previously reported (press release December 18, 2006), Halo identified the North and South Zones within a favourable geologic environment, equidistant between the historic Miles (Red Lake) and May-Spiers deposits. Trench 8-01 located 200 m southeast of the North Zone trenches averaged 7.83 g/t gold, 65.83 g/t silver and 0.86% ppm copper from eight samples collected. The maximum gold value returned 22.7 g/t and the maximum silver and copper values returned 106 g/t and 3.63% respectively.

A sample collected near the 9-44 "shaft" of the South Zone, located 350 m south of the North Zone trenches returned 81 g/t gold, 100 g/t silver and 4.61% copper over a width of 0.70 m. In addition, a sample taken from the 10-23 pit located along strike about 80 m west of the 9-44 location yielded 3.62 g/t gold, 100 g/t silver and 8040 ppm arsenic.

The property was acquired by option from Goldcorp Inc., in April 2006. Spectral IP (Induced Polarization), resistivity and magnetometer surveying at 100 m line intervals are being carried out by JVX Ltd. of Richmond Hill, Ontario covering the area between the historic Miles (Red Lake) and May-Spiers deposits.
