Matrixx Resource Holdings, Inc.: Drilling to Commence at Sandy Point

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA--(CCNMatthews - March 13, 2007) - Matrixx Resource Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:MXXR) announced today that the Company has been notified by the operator regarding the arrival of a drilling rig to begin drilling the Fite No. 3 well at Sandy Point in Brazoria County, Texas.

Reports from the operator disclose the arrival of the rig on site as of yesterday. Preparation of the rig is currently underway. Additionally, the operator expects to spud Wednesday or Thursday.

Sandy Point Field was discovered in 1937, and 60 acres yielded 665,000 BO from the 2nd Frio sand. Also, in the nearby W. Sandy Point Field, the Shepperd No.1 Fite has produced 250,000 BO, and 150 MMCFG, from the 1st and 2nd and 3rd Frio sands.

The Express No.1 Fite re-established production in Sandy Point Field in 2002. The 1st Frio sand has gas-on-oil and the 2nd Frio sand (the main pay in Sandy Point Field) has good oil shows in cuttings and sidewall cores.

3-D Seismic, along with well control, confirm that the Express well discovered a new, productive structure. However, the No. 1 Fite well is located low or flankish on the structure. The objective of the Fite No. 3 well is to drill to the 6,700 to 7,000 depth and find structural advantage on the order of magnitude of 10' to 20' over the No. 1 well. The results should be a 1st Frio gas sand of 10' net pay thickness, and 2nd Frio oil sand of 10' net pay thickness. The recoverables attributable to such a development well are estimated to be 0.4 BCFG and 500,000 BO.

Dry Hole Costs (DHC) of the Fite No.3 are expected to be $445,000 and completion costs attributable to the well are $218,500. Matrixx holds a 10% working interest in the prospect. Matrixx's drilling and completions costs of the well are expected to be approximately $44,500 and $21,850 respectively. Fite No. 3's close proximity to the currently producing Fite No.1 well will provide for the minimal completion costs. Dry hole costs for the Fite No. 3 have already been paid.

Matrixx has remained steadfast in its efforts in acquiring growth and investment opportunities in the oil and gas sector with the intent of providing the Company and its shareholders a much-improved increase in shareholder value. Additionally, the Company is now positioned to aggressively exploit its properties to accelerate cash flow and to provide rapid returns on its investments in the oil and gas sector.
