Halo Signs a Definitive Agreement for Additional Sherridon Manitoba Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 14, 2006) - Mr. Marc Cernovitch, President and CEO of Halo Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:HLO)(OTCBB:HLOSF)(FWB:HRL) is pleased to announce the signing of a definitive purchase agreement with Endowment Lakes (2002) Limited Partnership ("EL"), whereby Halo will acquire a 100% interest in and to ten mineral claims (the "EL Claims") located in the Eagle's Nest Lake, Meat Lake and QM Lake areas in the Sherridon area of Manitoba.

The addition of these ten claims will bring the Halo Sherridon property to 88 claims with a total combined area of 188 square kilometers. The claims are strategically located within the Sherridon dome structure and Meat Lake basin structure respectively and represent significant examples of the mineral potential within Halo's Sherridon VMS district. These properties will play an important role in Halo's plans to explore for high-grade volcanogenic massive sulphide deposits similar to those found in the nearby Snow Lake area of Manitoba.

Under the terms of definitive purchase agreement, Halo has agreed to acquire a 100% interest in the EL Claims in consideration for $90,000 in cash and 160,000 Halo common shares issued from treasury. EL will also be granted a 1% net smelter royalty in the EL Claims of which 1/2% can be purchased at any time by Halo for $500,000. The definitive agreement also provides that Halo will be entitled to purchase any rights acquired by EL in and to any mining claims within a one (1) kilometer area from the perimeter boundaries of the EL Claims.

The closing of the transaction is subject to Halo receiving all required approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

The Company also wish's to correct two typographic errors in its November 27, 2006 news release concerning the amendments and granting of its stock options. Specifically, the extension of expiry of 450,000 stock options at $0.60 per share, not $0.45 per share as previously noted, and the granting of 1,547,000 stock options at $0.45 per share, not 450,000 stock options as previously noted.
