Sola Resource Corp.: Kimberlite Exploration Program Moves Into Top Gear

- Major drill program commences - First diamond drill hole progressing on the Carolina kimberlite - Field staff increases facilitate acceleration of exploration

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 11, 2007) - Sola Resource Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SL) is progressing with its major drill program on and in the vicinity of the diamond-bearing Carolina kimberlite near Espigao d'Oeste in the State of Rondonia in northwestern Brazil.

The first diamond drill hole, DDH CK-001, is positioned near the centre of the 1.5 hectare (3.7 acre) cleared sector of weathered and undisturbed kimberlite mentioned in the Company's recently disseminated news release of May 24, 2007. This drill is currently progressing well through the kimberlite. The hole is the first of a series of 9 diamond drill holes totaling 2000 metres, which are planned through the Carolina kimberlite. These 9 holes will provide data for the construction of a 3-D model of the kimberlite which will be necessary in calculating potential tonnages for any future development and mining scenarios.

A further 1000 metre program of diamond drilling is being allocated to the testing of other anomalies discovered in the general vicinity of the Carolina kimberlite.

Sola now has 50 field personnel involved in the exploration programs in Rondonia. The geochemical and geophysical exploration projects have, as a result, moved into an accelerated phase in the past month.
