Tyler Resources Inc.: Independent Mining Consultants, Inc. to Begin Scoping Work at Bahuerachi

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 28, 2006) - Tyler Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TYS) is pleased to announce that it has retained Independent Mining Consultants, Inc, ("IMC") of Tucson, Arizona to begin scoping work for its rapidly advancing Bahuerachi bulk tonnage copper-moly-silver-zinc-gold deposit located in Chihuahua State, Mexico.

IMC has been selected by Tyler Resources due to its wide range of experience in mining environments similar to Bahuerahi and its track record in assisting Companies of all sizes to evaluate deposits and mine plans to maximize returns. Some of the latest projects and clients where IMC played a key role include the Grasberg mine (P.T. Freeport Indonesia), the Bingham Copper porphyry-skarn hosted mineralization (Kennecott Utah Copper Co) and the Toromocho advanced stage project (Peru Copper Inc.). In Mexico, IMC has played key roles in the evaluation, scoping and mine plans for the Terrazas advanced project (Constellation Copper Corp.) and Fronterra Copper's Piedras Verdes copper mine, which was commissioned and built in 2006. The Company is confident that IMC has the relevant experience and working knowledge of the current Mexican operating cost environment to assist Tyler in developing a solid strategy in its ongoing evaluation of the Bahuerachi project.

Block model data for the Bahuerachi deposit, metallurgical and survey data have been delivered to IMC who have begun the pre-scoping phase of work. This work will evaluate a large number of capital and operating cost requirements for a number of different potential operating plans at Bahuerachi, from a skarn based high-grade starter operation to a large bulk tonnage porphyry based operation with the possibility of a low-cost copper leach and SX-EW style operation. As the data is compiled and analyzed, Tyler will focus the pre-scoping into a full blown scoping study on the mine and development plans that will result in maximized value for development at Bahuerachi. The pre-scoping study is currently expected to lead to final scoping plans by March 2007.


Tyler Resources is a Canadian junior exploration company focused on base and precious metals exploration in Mexico. Tyler's primary project is the Bahuerachi property, which hosts Mexico's fourth largest known mineralized porphyry system. The Company is now in the advanced stage of a 35,000 meter combined diamond and reverse circulation drilling program extending into 2007, making it one of the most active Canadian junior exploration companies operating in Mexico.
