Cabo Receives Shareholder Approval for Sale of Mineral Properties...

North Vancouver, BC - Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX-V:CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) announces that at the Company’s Adjourned Annual General and Special Meeting of the Shareholders, held Monday, January 23, 2006, the disinterested shareholders overwhelming approved the previously announced sale of Cabo’s mineral properties to International Millennium Mining Corp. (the “Transaction”); voting 94.3% in favour.

Pursuant to the Transaction, the Company will transfer all of its mineral property interests to International Millennium Mining Corp. (“IMMC”) in exchange for 10,000,000 units of IMMC, each unit consisting of one (1) IMMC common share and one-third (1/3) of a warrant, each full warrant entitling the holder to purchase one (1) share in the capital stock of IMMC for thirty-five cents ($0.35) for a period of two (2) years following the date of issue (the “Units). The Company will subsequently redistribute no less than 75% of the Units to its shareholders on a ratio of one (1) IMMC unit for each four (4) shares of the Company held on a record date to be determined. The net effect will be that shareholders will continue to hold shares of the Company and receive units in the capital of IMMC. A four month hold period will apply to the redistributed IMMC shares. This transaction is subject to a number of conditions including, approval of the Board of IMMC, acceptance by the Exchange, completion by IMMC of a private placement of no less than $2,500,000, of which no less than $1,000,000 is to be expended on the mineral properties and to the Shareholders of IMMC approving the Transaction.

“A significant amount of work has gone into the sale of the mineral properties since our initial announcement in the Fall, 2005” stated John Versfelt, Cabo’s Chairman, President & CEO. “Following completion and closing of the Transaction, the Company’s shareholders will benefit by holding shares in two companies, one focused specifically on mineral and specialty drilling and the other focused on exploration and development of its mineral properties. Both companies are well positioned to benefit as the demand for metals continues to grow from markets around the world.”
