Swift Resources Begins Drill Program on the Hen Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2008) - Swift Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SWR) ("Swift" or the "Company") announces that the 2008 diamond drill program on the Hen property, located immediately south of Quesnel Lake, has begun. The host rocks, geological setting, and mineralization of the Hen property are similar to those of the Spanish Mountain and Frasergold properties located within 40 km of the Hen. Other properties in the area are being actively explored. To view the map, please visit the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/swr0715map.pdf.

Five zones of gold mineralization are known on the Hen, of which three have been previously explored by trenching and one by limited diamond drilling. All five zones remain open on strike and at depth. At the Main Zone, assays over 14.2 metres of 1.85 g/t Au (ddh 95-3, by a previous operator), and 9.0 metres of 3.69 g/t Au (trench 06-1, by Swift) have been obtained. Approximately 130 metres northwest of the Main Zone, trenching by Swift (trench 06-6) exposed a zone of mineralization believed to represent the on-strike extension of the Main Zone, returning assays of 8.31 g/t Au over 8.0 metres (including 13.22 g/t Au over 5.0 metres).

The 2008 drill program is being conducted under the direction of Dr. Krzysztof Mastalerz, Ph.D, P.Geo, Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 standards, who has reviewed and approved the technical contents of this news release.
