Halo Resources Ltd.: Results of Annual General Meeting

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2011) - Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(FRANKFURT:HRLN) ("Halo" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that at the Company's Annual General Meeting (the "Meeting") held November 10, 2011, Ms. Lynda Bloom and Messrs. Derek Cathcart, Marc Cernovitch, Nick DeMare, Tom Healy, William Lee, and Gary Ostry were elected as directors of the Company.

At a directors meeting held on November 23, 2011, Mr. Marc Cernovitch was appointed as President and CEO, Mr. Nick DeMare as CFO, Mr. Tom Healy as Chief Operating Officer and Mr. Harvey Lim as Corporate Secretary of the Company. Ms. Lynda Bloom has elected to focus on growth of her geochemical consulting company, Analytical Solutions Ltd., and as a result has not taken a management position with the Company.

"I am pleased to have worked with the Halo team that brought the Sherridon VMS Property from an early-stage property consolidation play to an advanced project with significant copper-zinc resources," says Lynda Bloom. "As a result we were able to attract HudBay Minerals as a senior partner as well as a significant company shareholder. HudBay holds options to make cash payments of $2.4 million and spend $6.35 million to earn 51% of the area hosting known resources. With HudBay Minerals as the operator in Manitoba, Halo can strategically evaluate opportunities elsewhere."

The Board thanks Ms. Bloom for her efforts in growing the Company and wishes her well in her future endeavours. Ms. Bloom will be providing consulting services to the Company and remains a valued member of the Board.

All items put forth at the Meeting were approved by the shareholders including an ordinary resolution to ratify the Company's stock option plan, pursuant to which the Company may grant stock options up to 10% of the issued and outstanding common shares at the time of the grant.
