Helio Resource Corp.: Update on Namibian Exploration Activities

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2007) - Helio Resource Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:HRC) is pleased to provide an update on its exploration activities in Namibia.

Tevrede North

The company has completed an extensive soil sampling progamme, covering approximately 140km2, over prospective volcano-sedimentary strata on the Tevrede North licence. 4,381 soil samples were collected on a 500 x 100m sampling grid. A number of coincident anomalies were detected. Peak geochemical assays are:

- Gold 1.05g/t (Mean + 2 Standard Deviations equals 0.05g/t)
- Silver 2.40g/t (M+2SD equals 0.2g/t)
- Copper 838ppm (M+2SD equals 82ppm)
- Lead 944ppm (M+2SD equals 54ppm)
- Zinc 3,330ppm (M+2SD equals 160ppm)

These results represent the highest reconnaissance soil sampling values recorded by Helio in the Kamanjab area and are considered highly significant given the wide spacing of the sampling grid.

The soil sampling programme followed up on previously-detected stream geochemical anomalies (Company press release dated March 2, 2007) and extensions of the mineralized stratigraphy drilled at the Company's Honib licence (Company press release dated March 2, 2007), located immediately south of Tevrede North. The mineralized stratigraphy is characterized by a coincident Zn +/- Cu +/- Pb +/- Ag +/- Au anomaly over 18 kilometres long and up to 500m wide.

A second polymetalic anomaly, named Hornbill, is also present in the grid and has a peak geochemical response of 3,300ppm Zn. Five rock grab samples have been collected over the Hornbill anomaly and these returned the following assays:

Sample No Au Ag Cu Pb Zn
RTN098 - 6.2g/t 0.43% 0.11% 0.17%
RTN099 - 6.4g/t 0.24% 1.03% -
RTN100 0.63g/t 345g/t 7.68% 4.23% 0.89%
RTN101 1.35g/t 698g/t 1.51% 1.89% 0.44%
RTN102 0.25g/t 8.5g/t 2.47% 0.16% 0.14%

Follow up detailed soil sampling and mapping is currently being planned in order to delineate drill targets.

An updated profile of the Tevrede North licence will be posted shortly on the Company's website www.helioresource.com.
