North Vancouver, BC – Cabo Drilling Corp.’s (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) Advanced Drilling Ltd. division has been awarded a contract to drill a minimum of 6,000 metres at Pacifica Resources Ltd’s Howard’s Pass Selwyn Project in eastern Yukon.  The diamond drilling program, for the Vancouver based company, is underway as part of a $10 million exploration program aimed at defining the full potential of this large zinc-lead deposit.
