Tyler Resources Announces Drilling Success in Large Stepout at Main Zone, Including 36.1 Meters Grading 0.45% Copper and 0.016 Molybdenum in DDH #38. Second Drill Rig Being Mobilized

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 23, 2005) - Tyler Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYS) is pleased to announce assay results for drill holes #38 and 39 from a significant stepout north of the Main Zone at the Bahuerachi project, Mexico.

Results from step-out holes located 500 to 600 meters north of section 2NE have confirmed that the main mineralized domains continue to the north including a copper oxide enriched blanket, skarn development, quartz stockworking and mineralized porphyry. The Main Zone mineralized trend has been expanded to over 1,500 meters of strike length and is still open to the north and south, at depth as well as locally laterally.

Significant intervals for drill holes DDH-BAH #38 and 39.

Tyler is pleased to have successfully accomplished the objective of the large step out, which was to accelerate the confirmation of extensions of the various mineralized domains to the north. Further surface work has also exposed areas of strongly stockworked porphyry with abundant fracturing, veining and copper oxide mineralization south and east of drill hole #38. Ongoing drilling will test these areas at depth as well as focus on discovering areas of thicker copper oxide enriched blanket and zones of skarn mineralization. Drill hole #40 has now been completed with samples having been shipped to the lab and drill hole #41 is currently ongoing.

Mobilization of the new drill rig has begun. Barring unforeseen difficulties, drilling with the second rig should commence within approximately 10 days.

Please refer to the drill hole location plan map attached on http://www2.ccnmatthews.com/database/fax/2000/tys822.pdf for the general location of all drill holes and sections.

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).
