Sola Resource Corp.: New Diamond-Bearing Area Discovered in Rondonia, Brazil

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 14, 2006) - Sola Resource Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SL) -

The Company is pleased to announce that its regional kimberlitic indicator minerals survey on its claims in Rondonia has recently recovered a 0.35-carat, white dodecahedral diamond and a 0.02-carat, white octahedral diamond in surficial sediments. The samples were from a newly surveyed area some considerable distance from the previously announced diamond discoveries. Garnets with keliphitic alteration rims, fresh Cr diopsides and fresh ilmenites accompanied the diamonds. The presence of keliphitic rims around the garnets is clear indication of minimal transport after erosion and suggests the proximity of a buried kimberlite body.

The region from which this diamond was obtained has been designated as the fourth high-priority target area in Sola's search for additional diamond-bearing kimberlite bodies beyond the diamond-bearing Carolina pipe. A follow-up investigation program of all these new diamond-bearing anomalies has now commenced using ground-geophysical survey equipment. This will enable the quantification of the area of any kimberlite bodies.

The Company is recording continued success with its regional program of residual soil and stream sediment sampling on its current 2985.7 square kilometer claim block. The property is located in the eastern region of Rondonia State, Brazil. These new discoveries support the exploration model suggesting there are numerous, as yet undiscovered, kimberlites in the region.
