Halo Resources Ltd. Stakes Claims in North-Central Manitoba

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 2, 2005) - Mr. Marc Cernovitch, President and CEO of Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(OTCBB:HLOSF)(FWB:HRL) is pleased to announce that Halo has staked and submitted for recording 21 mining claims comprising approximately 4,300 hectares in the Sherridon area in North-Central Manitoba.

The claims are located approximately 70 kilometres north of Flin Flon Manitoba in the immediate vicinity of the historic Sherritt Gordon Mine. Halo considers the area to be under-explored and represents a unique exploration opportunity for the potential discovery of high-grade Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits similar to those found in the nearby Snow Lake area of Manitoba.

Halo has submitted an application to record the claims with the office of the Mining Recorder. There is a 30 day period from submission of the staked claims to the formal recording of the claims. All claims are subject to inspection.

Halo is actively analyzing strategic opportunities for the development of the area comprising the claims, including the sourcing of a potential strategic alliance, joint venture or sale transaction.

Halo is a Canadian-based resource company focused on the acquisition of near production base and precious base metal deposits. Currently the Company owns or has an interest in 3 projects: Duport, which is an advanced stage gold project; Bachelor Lake, which is a gold exploration project, and a letter of intent regarding Quarter Moon, which is a grass roots gold project. The Company is operated by an experienced management team and backed by a strong network of mining financiers. The Company's growth strategy is to develop a diversified portfolio of advanced mining projects.
