Matrixx Resource Holdings, Inc.: Weekly Drilling Update on Clovelly South Prospect

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 4, 2006) - Matrixx Resource Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:MXXR) announced today that we have encountered a charged sand at 14,280 feet, which is believed to be a stringer sand located approximately 50 feet above the anticipated "M" sand.

Seven inch protective casing is currently being set to protect the hole after the operator has elevated mud weight to 12.6 pounds per gallon to contain the pressure while circulating gas out of the hole.

The well is nearing its objective and the operator of the well reported on August 3, 2006 that a "drilling break" was encountered from 14,275 feet to 14,280 feet. A "drilling break" is defined as encountering "reservoir quality sand" and pressure, in this case, gas is entering the well bore.

It is anticipated that another 200 feet will be drilled to get through the objective "M" sand. Drilling may proceed to 14,700 feet if necessary to complete the objective.

While global political turmoil continues to keep oil prices near $75 per barrel and some recent analysts' reports predict that oil could reach as high as $100 a barrel in the near future, the Company is moving forward in its efforts to acquiring additional growth and investment opportunities in this natural resource sector with the intent of providing the Company and its shareholders a much-improved increase in shareholder value. The Company is focused on increasing value by means on continuing acquisitions, development projects and exploration drilling through joint venture networks.
