Skyharbour Resources Ltd.: Work Program Planned For McKenzie Island Property, Red Lake, Ontario

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 31, 2005) - Skyharbour Resources Ltd (TSX VENTURE:SYH), and its working partner Cypress Development Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CYP) are pleased to announce their planned continuation of their Red Lake gold exploration programs for the fall / winter of 2005.

Drill testing of a prospective target area on the east portion of the companies 5,100-acre McKenzie Island claim group, Red Lake, Ontario is being proposed for the winter of 2005-2006. Drilling is planned in an area where a significant angular unconformity is projected. This unconformity appears to exert a strong regional influence on gold deposition including past gold produced from the McKenzie Red Lake Gold Mine and the Gold Eagle Mine east of the Cypress / Skyharbour property. The geologic corridor flanking this known unconformity is considered to be very prospective for gold deposition in the Red Lake gold camp.

An extensive and ongoing diamond drill program adjacent to the east on the Gold Eagle property being carried out by Southern Star Resources Inc. and Exall Resources Ltd. continues to develop a significant gold resource. (See their news release (TSX.V: SSR) / (TSX: EXL) August 29,2005) The Western Discovery Zone (See their news release May 11, 2005) that has now been established by the Southern Star / Exall joint venture is situated in a strike length of over 1 kilometre in a east - west direction and has a width of 350 metres from north to south. The Skyharbour Resources / Cypress Development joint venture is of the opinion that there is potential for the extension of the Western Discovery Zone onto the McKenzie Island property.
