Odyssey's Drilling Hits New Gold at Tavsan Property in Turkey

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - April 4, 2006) - Odyssey Resources Limited (TSX VENTURE:ODX) is pleased to report results from the first six holes of the Company's grid drilling program at its Tavsan Gold Property in western Turkey. Hole ODX 99-B intersected 17 metres from surface averaging 3.5 grams/tonne gold and 7.0 grams/tonne silver. This hole and the others referred to in this release are located in an area located over 1.5 kilometres north of the Main Zone (Satellite Zones 6, 7 and 8; please refer to the following map on the Company's website: http://www.odysseyresources.com/TavsanGoldProperty.htm) where Teck Cominco established a Historic Resource in the late 1990s (please refer to the Company's news release dated May 14, 2003).

Results for the holes are as follows:

Samples were assayed at ALS Chemex Laboratories in Vancouver where the analytical procedure consists of pulverizing split samples followed by aqua regia digestion and atomic absorption finish. A quality control program consisting of duplicates, and standards were inserted into the sample stream.

All holes are vertical reverse circulation holes through a flat-lying to shallow-dipping slab of gold-mineralized jasperoid that occupies a thrust fault separating overlying metamorphosed ophiolites from underlying limestones. The resultant intersections vary from true to near-true width.

Results from the remaining holes will be released as they are received. Given its flat-lying morphology and exposure at or near surface, Odyssey management views Tavsan as hosting excellent potential for a low-cost bulk-mineable operation. Drilling will continue to test the entire three-plus kilometre strike length of surface-exposed jasperoid-hosted gold mineralization at Tavsan, after which an Independent Resource Estimate will be commissioned.

Mr. Cem Yuceer, Odyssey's Exploration Manager in Turkey, is the manager of this drill program and Avrom E. Howard, P.Geo. (Ontario) is the Qualified Person responsible for this project under the terms of National Instrument 43-101.
