Skyharbour Resources Ltd.: Geophysical Program to Commence on Rainy River Properties in NW Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 19, 2006) - Skyharbour Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SYH) (the "Company") announces that it has contracted out the establishment of a detailed grid on its "D1" Claim Block property that the Company has recently acquired (see News Release November 30th) located to the southwest of the new gold zone discoveries of Rainy River Resources property.

Rainy River Claims Map:

Upon completion of the linecut grid, Skyharbour Resources will proceed with a detailed geophysical program consisting of a Magnetometer survey and a Horizontal Loop (EM) survey. These surveys will commence at the beginning of January 2007. The Company will also complete a detailed overburden drill program, to follow up on previous till data that has now be compiled by Skyharbour. The Company intends to use the geophysical data to initiate a diamond drill program on the "D1" Claim Block property about mid February 2007.

Skyharbour Resources is acquiring a 100% interest in the "D1", "D2", and "E" Claim Block properties consisting of approximately 1,750 hectares located in the Sifton, Tait, and Pattullo Townships of northwestern Ontario. The 3 properties are well located to the west and southwest of the #17, the #433, and the new ODM gold zones of Rainy River Resources property.

The "D2" and the "E" Claim Block properties will also have exploration programs carried out during the winter of 2007. Skyharbour Resources intends to complete detailed overburden drill programs on all of its land holdings commencing at the beginning of the New Year.

The newly acquired properties are located within extensions of the greenstone belt that is known to host the Rainy River Resources gold deposits. The attitude of the reported gold zones is similar to a series of interpreted northwest trending faults. These faults are very evident from the regional magnetic data and crosscut the volcanic belt along a 15 kilometre strike length. The northwest trending faults served as the focus for the emplacement of a number of late diabase dikes in the area. These structures appear to have been the focus of earlier gold mineralization that has been reactivated during emplacement of the dikes.

Rainy River Geological Map:

The area has received only a preliminary exploration pass and a number of potential target areas remain untested. Extensive overburden cover in the area has resulted in overburden drilling being used as a primary exploration tool. Skyharbour resources plans to use this method to further develop gold and base metal target areas.

Skyharbour Resources is of the belief that the deposits being outlined by Rainy River Resources confirm the area as a mineral camp in its early stage of exploration. The land position with the crosscutting structures and well developed infrastructure now under option to Skyharbour Resources represent an excellent starting point in this emerging mineral camp.

David J. Busch, B.A., B.Sc., PGeo., Vice President of Explorations, is the qualified person, under the meaning of National Instrument 43-101, and has reviewed the data in this News Release.
