Cabo Drilling Panama-Pacifico Corp. Awarded Contract Renewal by Galway Resources Ltd.

Cabo Drilling Corp. (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) announces that Cabo Drilling Panama-Pacifico Corp. has renewed its current contract with Galway Resources for an additional 20,000 meters of drilling on Galway’s project in the California Gold District of Colombia.  Galway’s California property, which is not subject to development restrictions associated with Páramo legislation, is located adjacent to, along strike, southwest of and at lower elevations than Ventana’s La Bodega/La Mascota project, and 3 km along strike from and at lower elevations than Greystar’s Angostura project.

The Company will continue to operate two Hydracore 2000 man portable drills at Galway’s California Gold District project.  These drills are designed to separate into several components, each of which can be easily transported by helicopter, pick-up truck, mule or by small crews, which make them versatile and maneuverable. Hydracore 2000 drills are ideal for servicing mountainous areas that are otherwise inaccessible for diamond core drilling.

Production rates in the California Gold District are above historical averages and Cabo expects the project to carry into 2012.

Cabo Drilling believes that flexibility is one of the keys to success in Central and South America. It offers a full range of diamond core drilling services using man portable and helicopter fly drills to access remote sites, small electric and hydraulic underground drills for mine expansion drilling, or large skid and track mounted drills for deep hole drilling. In Central and South America, the Company’s ability to access exploration projects with highly maneuverable man portable drills, provides Cabo with the opportunity to work with exploration and mining companies wherever their projects are located.

Cabo’s “safety first” culture has gained Cabo numerous industry awards and recognition for operating with safe work practices.  Cabo Drilling Panama-Pacifico Corp. has demonstrated this by recently achieving its sixth consecutive month of operating without a single lost time injury.

The Company also has the Victorio molybdenum-tungsten project, with excellent infrastructure, in southwestern New Mexico. A positive scoping study was completed by SRK in 2008.
