New & Extended Contracts for Cabo Drilling in Mexico

North Vancouver, BC - Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) Mexico division, Cabo Drilling de Mexico S.A. de C.V., has been awarded contracts to complete an approximate 7,000 meters of core drilling in Mexico.

The Company has commenced a 4,000 meters minimum, drill program for High Desert Gold Corp. (TSX: HDG) at High Desert’s flagship Mexican gold property, Canasta Dorada, located in the Sonoran Gold Belt in Mexico.  The drilling is part of a planned 40-hole drill program.  The Company is utilizing a BBS-37 conventional drill for this job.

In addition, SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX: SVL) has added 2,000 to 3,000 meters of drilling to its existing 4,000 meter contract with the Company extending its Santa Elena Project drilling program into 2008.  The Santa Elena Project is located approximately 150 kilometers northeast of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. 

Mexico is growing increasingly attractive for mining and exploration, not only because of its political and financial stability, but also because the Mexico Geological Survey continues to improve the country's geological knowledge base and accessibility to it.  In addition, updated mining regulations have completely opened the mining sector to foreign and domestic investment.

The Company continues to focus its efforts in Mexico where these favourable exploration and mining conditions exist, as well as improved opportunities to drill all year round, minimizing shut down costs, due to weather conditions.
