Tyler Announces Further Porphyry Intersects at Bahuerachi, inc. 48.1 m Grading 0.93% Copper, 0.15 g/t Gold and 4.2 g/t Silver and 32.35 m Grading 0.69% Copper, 0.1 g/t Gold and 5.34 g/t Silver

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2006) -

New Skarn/Porphyry Discovery Outlined

Tyler Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYS) is very pleased to announce assay results for drill holes #58 to #61 for its Bahuerachi project, Mexico.

Drill holes #58, #60 and #61 were testing wide sections of porphyry in the core of the Main Zone and all have contributed to expanding the extent of the mineralized porphyry complex along width and at depth. Drill hole #61 was the deepest drill hole to date on the project with a total depth of 601 meters. As previously reported, drill hole #59 tested a blind geophysical anomaly west of the Main Zone as outlined on the attached general drill hole location map. Results are presented in the following tables and discussed below. Sections for all Main Zone drill holes are posted with the news release on our website at www.tylerresources.com.

Intervals for holes #58, 60 and 61 are interpreted true widths.


Outside of higher grade zones and wider intervals described in the table, the bottom part of drill hole Bah-58 averaged 0.24% copper, 0.006% molybdenum and 1.7 g/t silver over 216.6 m, from 181.4 to 398 m, excluding 35.1 m of unmineralized dikes.

Drill hole Bah-60 averaged 0.43% copper, 0.02% molybdenum and 2.7 g/t silver over 347.25 m, from 7 to 489.15 m, excluding 134.9 m of unmineralized dikes. As shown on the table above, multiple zones within this interval included higher grades and significant amounts of silver, gold and molybdenum.

Drill hole Bah-61 averaged 0.47% copper, 0.01% molybdenum and 3.9 g/t silver over 272.3m, from 85 to 472m, excluding 114.7 m of unmineralized dikes. Numerous higher grades zones and significant amounts of silver, gold and molybdenum were also found within this interval.

As shown on sections attached, the porphyry body has now been found to be significantly wider at depth than at surface in the north, with a target width now in excess of 350 to 500 meters on some sections. Overall grades going north, as well as at depth on some sections, have shown to increase with locally higher molybdenum and gold grades associated with copper mineralization.

Assay results from drilling to date continue to confirm that the porphyry complex carries mineralization with open pit style mining potential on wide sections, with grades comparable to a wide range of past and present day operating mines.

Drill hole #59

Drill hole #59 was the first of two drill holes testing a distinct geophysical anomaly located well west of the Main Zone porphyry. Assays received for partial sampling in drill hole #59 have shown a few anomalous sections in gold, silver and zinc. Anomalous zinc, ranging between 0.1% and 0.32% was found in 7 sample intervals, anomalous gold (0.01 to 0.26 g/t gold) was found in 15 intervals and silver was commonly anomalous with values of up to 3.1 g/t. Anomalous copper (0.04 and 0.05%) was identified in two sample intervals.

The magnetic geophysical anomaly was partially explained by the presence of thick bedded mudstones with local magnetite-epidote-pyrite alteration with minor chalcopyrite and molybdenite. Although the alterations and anomalous values indicate the presence of mineralizing fluids in the system, no target with evident economic potential was identified with drill hole #59.

Exploration Update-North Skarn Discovery

Exploration work following up on areas of newly discovered skarn and porphyry as described in the last release ("North Skarn" target on attached property map) has defined a new and previously unrecognized skarn complex which has now become a high priority drill target. The area is currently being prepared for drill testing.

Massive skarn zones, related to an extensive copper-in-soil anomaly, have now been identified over an area of roughly 500 by 800 meters. Topography reveals the massive skarn replacement formations over 240 meters vertically. Other skarn zones are known in the area and mapping is ongoing to tie in the known skarn outcrops with other showings over a target area of approximately 1 kilometer by 1 kilometer.

Drilling Update

Diamond drill holes #62, 63, 64 and 65 have been completed and sent to the laboratory for assay and drill holes #66, #67 and #68 are currently in progress (see attached drill plan).

Reverse Circulation (RC) equipment has completed 5 holes totaling in excess of 900 meters to date, and production is now averaging approximately 100 meters a day. RC is currently being used to drill largely untested skarn bodies on the east side of the porphyry within the Main Zone. Both production as well as recoveries have been excellent to date.

Corporate Developments

In other news, Tyler has been advised by Majescor Resources that Majescor has elected not to contribute to the Carat and Kelsey Joint Ventures with Diamondex Resources in the Northwest Territories. Accordingly, both the Carat (29.91% interest) and Kelsey (32.66% interest) property Joint Venture interests that were Optioned by Majescor from Tyler will revert to Tyler Resources.

About Tyler

Tyler Resources is a junior exploration company focused on base and precious metals exploration in Mexico. Tyler's primary project is the Bahuerachi property which hosts a large mineralized porphyry-skarn copper (Au, Ag, Mo, Zn) complex. The company is well financed and is in the early part of a 35,000 meter combined diamond and reverse circulation drilling program currently scheduled to be completed during 2006, making it one of the most active Canadian junior exploration companies operating in Mexico.

All assay work was performed by ICP at ALS-Chemex labs of Vancouver, with gold done using standard fire assay methods. All samples sent to the lab are sealed with security tags for delivery to ALS-Chemex. Duplicate samples as well as standards and blanks are inserted in each batch of samples delivered to the laboratory and then checked to ensure proper quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC).

The Qualified Person responsible for the design and implementation of the Field Program as well as the preparation of this news release was J. P. Jutras, P.Geol., and President of the Company. The work program is being carried out with the participation of Dr. Shane William Ebert, Ph.D, P.Geo, Vice President and Director, and Brent Gonek, B.Sc, Geology, Dustin Rainey, B.Sc Geology, Grant Couture, B.Sc., M.Sc Geology and Cornell McDowell, B.Sc Geology, consultants to the Company.
